INAUGURAL SEASON OF MID-ATLANTIC SPRINT SERIES,
PRESENTED BY ENGLER, SET TO START APRIL 30TH AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY;
OVER $10,000 IN SPONSORSHIP TO HANDOUT
With the stage is set, and the 2017 schedule
officially completed, the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series presented by Engler
Machine & Tool members and teams are anxious to begin the battle
for the first ever MASS championship title on Sunday, April 30th, at the
“fastest track in the east” - Bridgeport Speedway, which is located in
Logan Township, NJ.
Competitors like Tim Tanner, Tommy Carberry, Bryant Davis, Stef Carberry, Joe Kay, Eddie Wagner, Jeff Geiges, Craig Pellegrini, David Bonner, Logan Diehl, among others, intend to fight for the crown. A list of seven brand new rookie racers, including Patrick Compton, Austin Burke, Bobby Schreff, Dean Conk Jr., Tom Carberry, Doug Snow, and John Webster Jr. will also be joining the series, all eyeing the Geiweit Creations Rookie and the year title.
As the new series on the block, the management team, which consists of Eddie Wagner and Jeff Geiges, who are 305 Sprint Car drivers themselves, has worked hard to make the first season start off with a bang.
One of the first tasks set in place was to make sure the purse stayed true to RaceSaver roots with at least $300 to win and $150 to start for all races. MASS secured major marketing partners to come on board to help encourage members to race as often as they can by adding additional contingency and cash sponsors to each event.
“One of the thing that we are excited for this season is all of the people who were happy to support our series, whether is was as a sponsor, a track, and especially our drivers and teams who are planning on running with MASS,” Regional Director Eddie Wagner said. “We are going to be paying our heat race winners $50 in cash, and we have secured sponsors for the hard charger award, quick time of the night, and other incentives that will offer parts giveaways, cash, fuel, tires, certificates, and more”.
“Engler Machine and Tool and Diversified Machine Inc.
(DMI) have really upped the ante this year with their support in MASS,”
Wagner stated. “These companies, which are a pivotal part of the
Sprint Car parts industry, have given over $6500 worth components to
raffle off at the end of the year. Engler is supplying a brand new
injection and DMI is providing a brand new XR-3 Bulldog rear end and
complete front end kit. Raffle tickets will be distributed on Engler and
DMI sponsored race nights and additional tickets will be awarded to
teams holding the top five spots in points and members who have raced in
three consecutive Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series events”.
