Toledo, Ohio—January 25, 2017: The 3-race “Silver Cup” Series for ARCA’s Late Model Sportsman division will return for the 2017 season and be backed by local businessman Mike Rogers through his R & M Recycling business. The trio of races will see 2 events at Toledo Speedway and a single event at Flat Rock Speedway.
The R & M Recycling Silver Cup races will each be 50 laps. The dates are Saturday, June 24 at Flat Rock; Saturday, July 1 and Friday, August 11, both at Toledo.
A separate point system will be kept for the 3 races, and a bonus point fund has been established, with the Series champion to collect $500. Second place will get $300, $200 will go to the third place finisher, $150 to fourth and $100 to the fifth place driver. Points for these 3 events will also be earned for the 2017 over-all ARCA Late Model Sportsman championship chase.
The R & M Recycling Silver Cup Series contests will also feature a bonus purse structure, lap money at $5 per lap and contingency awards from Bazell Race Fuels/Sunoco Race Fuels (Toledo races) for each of the 50 lap feature events. Several other awards are being sought and will be announced when details have been finalized.
R & M will also continue its sponsorship of School Buses for both “Night of Destruction” events at Toledo in 2017, as well as their association with the Glass City 200.
R & M Recycling has locations in Toledo, OH, Adrian, MI and Monroe, MI.
BAZELL FUELS RETURNS TO TOLEDO WITH SUPPORT OF TEAMS
Logan, OH-based Bazell Race Fuels has also agreed to renew its support of Toledo Speedway and its race teams. The supplier of Sunoco Race Fuel for the track will continue its race night cash bonus program for Sunoco fuel purchasers for selected events, contribute to the point fund and will support the Glass City 200 race.
“We are very grateful to Mike Rogers and the folks at R & M Recycling and to Brian Bazell and his staff at Bazell Race Fuels for their continued support,” said Ron Drager, Owner and Promoter of both Toledo and Flat Rock.
Additional sponsorship announcements will be released in the coming weeks leading up to the new race season.
