PPB Presents "Roll The Dice Challenge" - SuperNationals Winner Could Collect $5,000


KIRKWOOD, NY - Drivers in a gambling mood have a chance to come up big during the Short Track SuperNationals at Five Mile Point Speedway.


Pioneer Pole Buildings Inc. of Schuylkill Haven, Pa., has announced sponsorship of the "Roll the Dice Challenge" which could bring the winner's share of the Oct. 12 big-block/small-block Modified 50-lap event to $5,000.


Competitors will have the option of posting a $20 "gambler's fee" prior to the start of qualifying. If a driver rolls the dice and goes on to win the feature, they will earn $5,000 - a $1,500 addition to the posted $3,500 top prize - thanks to Pioneer Pole Buildings Inc. president Bob Greene.


"We're always looking to expand our market and New York is a target area for us," Greene said. "We felt this was a creative avenue to reach out to the racing community in the region, while supporting what we believe will be a great event."


"The Pioneer Pole Buildings 'Roll the Dice Challenge' adds an incentive for racers and a sub-plot for fans," event promoter Brett Deyo said. "We'll be able to play up the drivers who took the challenge and track their progress throughout the event."

The second running of the Short Track SuperNationals, geared toward the weekly racer, will pay $1,000 for fifth, $500 for 10th and $200 to take the green flag.


Sail panels will be permitted. Competitors have the option of gasoline or methanol. Any 13- by 92-inch Modified tire will be legal. 358-Modifieds will be granted a weight break. A complete set of rules will be announced well in advance of the event.


Drivers will draw for heat-race starting positions, with a top-12 redraw for the feature. In the interest of fan entertainment, there will be no time trials.


The first edition of the Short Track SuperNationals, held in 2006 at N.Y.'s Afton Speedway, drew a field of 54 Modifieds. Mike Ricci of Rosendale, N.Y., was the winner over J.R. Hurlburt, Brian Weaver, Joey Grammes and Davie Franek.


The Race of Champions Dart Pure Stock Tour, Four Cylinder Stocks and an open event for Vintage Modifieds will complete the one-day event.


A "split program" will be run, with support-division qualifying held earlier in the afternoon, prior to the Modifieds hitting the track in the evening.

Admission prices, start times, entry information and other details will be released in the near future.
