ACCORD, NY – Race fans left Accord Speedway wanting more when the checkered flew on the make-up ‘Gobbler’ April 14.

Now, they’re going to get it. On Tuesday, May 19 (rain date: May 20) New York Truck Parts Inc. presents the ‘Battle of the Bullring 3’ at the Ulster County quarter-mile oval. The Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Hi-Tek big-block/small-block Modifieds headline the program with a 53-lap main event paying $5,300 to win, $1,000 for 10th and $400 to take the green flag. A total purse of more than $25,000 will be distributed to STSS Modified competitors.

Gary and Donna Palmer’s neat-and-tidy “gem in the Catskills” facility hosts event No. 3 of the STSS Bob Hilbert Sportswear North Region $15,000 championship battle. The STSS North Region point fund totals more than $38,000 for the drivers placing inside the Top-12 in the standings.

Joining the Modifieds on the midweek program: Sportsman (Open vs. Crate 602) in a $1,000-to-win, $100-to-start 25-lap event and Slingshots, running 20 laps for a $300 winner’s share.

The ‘Battle of the Bullring 3’ celebrates its third running in 2015. Last year, Anthony Perrego of Montgomery, N.Y., emerged from an intense tussle with Tommy Meier to score the victory. In the inaugural ’13 running, Danny Creeden of Wurtsboro, N.Y., was the winner.

Accord’s most recent special event, the postponed ‘Gobbler’ from November was a thriller from start-to-finish. With more than 100 race cars in the pit area, the Modified feature event was completed by 10 p.m.

Local driver Jackie Brown Jr. of Hurley, N.Y., earned the most lucrative triumph of his career, pocketing more than $7,800 for his conquest over a charging Creeden, Jerry Higbie Jr., Chuck McKee and Mike Mahaney. Other winners included Greg McCloskey (Sportsman), Kevin Skelly (Street Stock) and Demetrios Drellos (Slingshot).

For the ‘Battle of the Bullring 3’ pit gates open at 3 p.m. Grandstand gates will be unlocked at 4 p.m. A drivers’ meeting is planned for 5:45 p.m., with hot laps at 6 p.m. and racing at 7 p.m.
