Fans & Racers Rewarded July 22 At I-88 Speedway With Huge Payout For Short Track Super Series Fueled By Hi-Tek Modifieds; $1,700 Whirlpool Washer/Dryer Fan Giveaway Announced Courtesy Of Olum’s; Hard Charger, Heat-Race Money Secured

AFTON, NY – Fans and racers alike will be rewarded at the third annual ‘Crazy 8s Special’ Wednesday, July 22 (rain date: July 23).

When the Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Hi-Tek rolls into I-88 Speedway on the Afton Fairgrounds, big-block/small-block Modified racers will compete for a massive cash payout of more than $30,000 for the 48-lap event, including a season-high $8,888 to win (with $20 “Gambler’s Fee” posted).

Most recently, cash bonuses have been added for STSS Modified racers. Each heat race winner in the Modified ranks will receive $88 cash courtesy of Parks Companies Inc. The Hard Charger in the 48-lap main event will take home $288 in cash via Zubi’s Racing.

The fans have not been forgotten, either.

Thanks to Olum’s, furniture, bedding, appliance and electronics centers with locations in the Southern Tier and Syracuse, one lucky race fan will leave with a brand-new Whirlpool front-loading washer and electric dryer, with a total MSRP value of more than $1,700.

There is no cost to be part of this raffle. A drawing of general admission tickets will take place following the Modified 48-lap feature in Victory Lane. The washer/dryer will be on-site and able to be taken home by the lucky winner.

The ‘Crazy 8s Special’ is a co-promotion involving I-88 Speedway managers Jamie and Denise Page and BD Motorsports Media LLC. Mike Mahaney of King Ferry, N.Y., won the inaugural edition in 2013 and last year’s victor was Wurtsboro, N.Y., driver Danny Creeden.

Defending victor Creeden pocketed more than $9,000 for his efforts in cash a year ago by fending off Stewart Friesen and Andy Bachetti.

The entire 2015 posted purse is as follows: 1) $8,888; 2) $3,888; 3) $2,288; 4) $1,688; 5) $1,488; 6) $1,288; 7) $1,188; 8) $1,088; 9) $988; 10) $888; 11) $688; 12) $588; 13) $488; 14-24): $388; Provisionals) $194.

All Modifieds weigh 2,400 lbs. for this event. Tire rules are as follows: American Racer 33 or harder across the front; 33 or harder left-rear; and 38 or harder right-rear. Sail panels are permitted. A draw for position will set heat-race lineups with a redraw of top qualifiers for the main.

The ‘Crazy 8s Special’ serves as the fifth round of the STSS Bob Hilbert Sportswear North Region $15,000 championship battle.

Four different drivers have visited STSS North Region Victory Lane already in 2015: point leader Friesen (N.Y.’s Orange County Fair Speedway); Rick Laubach (Pa.’s Big Diamond Stewart Speedway); Jackie Brown Jr. (N.Y.’s Accord Speedway) and Brian Malcolm (N.Y.’s Thunder Mountain Speedway).

Joining the Modifieds on the program are the GRIT Series Crate 602 Sportsman in a $1,000-to-win main and Doug Borger’s traveling XCel 600 Modifieds competing in a mini-series race also paying $1,000 to the victor.
