RACECEIVER SIGNS ON AS TITLE SPONSOR FOR LEGENDSTOCK 2009 AT BETHEL
   
July 29, BETHEL, NY - The announcement was made today that RACEceiver has teamed up with Bethel Motor Speedway for the prestigious LegendStock 2009 race. RACEceiver will serve as the title sponsor of the event, scheduled for August 15th at the quarter-mile track located in Bethel, New York. The LegendStock 2009 race is being run in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock Music Festival, the original site of which is located just four miles from the speedway.

LegendStock 2009 is believed to be the highest paying single Legends event in the Northeast, paying a total guaranteed purse of $3,000. The winner of the event will pocket $1,500 and receive a guaranteed provisional starting spot in the Legends Car Fall Classic to be held at Sundance Vacations Speedway in October. The winner in each division will receive a three-foot tall guitar shaped trophy. Perhaps most importantly, the winner of the race will get bragging rights for taking home the victory in the event.

Last year, LegendStock 2008 was overwhelmingly popular, drawing in drivers from more than six states. Drivers traveled from as far away as Georgia and Minnesota to take part in the event, which was won by Pro division competitor Michael Gervais Jr. Mike Alcaro, who is the current Legends points leader at Bethel, finished second in last year's event and was the Semi-Pro division winner. Alcaro has moved into the Pro division for 2009. Minnesota's Tim Brockhouse was the winner in the Masters division. In the Bandolero race, Matt Ewing emerged victorious.

With RACEceiver signing on as the title sponsor, it was announced that all competitors will be required to utilize a RACEceiver transponder, which will be available at the track for use the day of the event. There will be no cost for competitors for the use of the transponders.

On August 15th, the pit gates at Bethel will swing open at 1:00 p.m. Tech is scheduled to take place between 1:15 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., with hot laps taking to the track from 3:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. Qualifying is set to begin at 5 p.m.

The LegendStock 2009 entry fee remains unchanged from last year, at $50 for a Legends car and driver. Bandolero drivers will have their entry fee waived.

The raindate for LegendStock 2009 is Sunday, August 16th. If the raindate is not needed, Bethel intends to host a regular 30-lap Legends race that day. The entry fee for Sunday's event will be $30, and the race will pay $300 to win. Anyone interested in racing on August 16th should notify legendstockny@yahoo.com.

More details and an online entry form are available at www.legendstock2009.com.

RACEceiver has been a consistent supporter of Legends racing, from the development of products designed for drivers in the series to the sponsorship of events including the 13th Annual Legends and Thunder Cars World Finals to be held in Las Vegas in December. Last August, the company announced the launch of the LapCeiver, which works with a driver's transponder to record individual lap times.
