Holland, N.Y. – The Thunder in the Hills 100 presents Ferris Mowers Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series fueled by Sunoco teams with a unique challenge. It is the only visit the series will pay to the legendary high banks of Holland International Speedway and it is the first 100-lap race of the season for competitors.
“This is going to be an interesting race,” stated Daryl Lewis, Jr. “We have been able to change a tire during this race in the past and this year, the rules will not allow us to change a tire. We will be racing 100 laps on the same set of tires, so it’s going to take a lot of different things to be successful in the event. It’s going to be an interesting night. We hope we have another good finish when the checkered flag waves.”
Lewis has accumulated strong finishes this season, including a 5th, in the most recent event at Lancaster (N.Y.) National Speedway as well having led many laps in several other races which has placed him 6th in the current Series Championship standings.
“We’ve been having a good season,” continued Lewis. “It’s a team and family effort. My Dad has been doing this for a long time and everyone in our family makes sacrifices and commitments to get this done. I couldn’t be where I’m at without all of there help.”
Patrick Emerling of Orchard Park, N.Y., currently leads the championship standings as the Series heads to Holland International Speedway. Emerling is the defending champion of the Thunder in the Hills 100 and a winner of the three Series events this season, including the most recent event at Lancaster.
