A true supporter of auto racing – as a driver and promoter – will be honored on Friday, June 2 at Georgetown Speedway.

The Deron Rust Memorial, headlined by big-block/small-block Modifieds, offers a healthy purse for 33 laps of racing: $3,396 to the winner and $296 to take the green flag. The event is dedicated to the legacy of Rust, a racer who went on to serve as the speedway’s promoter before passing away in March 2013.

Members of the Rust family will be present for the night’s events.

The Friday event coincides with the NASCAR weekend at nearby Dover International Speedway.

Joining the Modifieds on the card are Crate 602 Sportsman ($600 to win, $100 to start), Southern Delaware Vintage Stock Cars, Delmarva Chargers & Delaware Super Trucks.

Modified racers have the opportunity to compete for a very healthy Friday night payout: 1) $3,396; 2) $1,596; 3) $1,196; 4) $1,096; 5) $996; 6) $896; 7) $796; 8) $696; 9) $596; 10) $496; 11) $396; 12-Last): $296.

A draw for position will be utilized to set heat-race starting positions with a redraw of top qualifiers for the feature.

Pit gates will open at 4 p.m., with grandstand gates unlocked at 5 p.m., hot laps at 6:20 p.m. and racing at 7:15 p.m.
