ASCS Patriots Return to Stateline Speedway Saturday

TULSA, Okla. (May 22, 2006) -- This Saturday night, the Bobcat of Buffalo ASCS Patriot Sprint Group returns to the track where the series began the tradition back in 2003, Stateline Speedway in Busti, NY.

On May 3, 2003, ASCS PSG Race Director Tom Taber won his only "A" Feature event in the series he has built to a level that rivals any other in the country. Taber would bring his racing career to a halt shortly thereafter, but it would not be until June of last year when the Patriots made the return to Stateline Speedway.

George Suprick was the winner of last year's event on June 18, holding off the hard charges of Bryan Howland for nearly half the race and working through lapped traffic en route to his eighth career Bobcat of Buffalo PSG "A" Main victory.J Chuck Hebing snapped Suprick's streak of wins at Canandaigua Speedway this past weekend and would love to snap another one at Stateline a week later.

Speaking of Hebing, "Cobra" has been the class of the field in both races so far this season, collecting wins at Utica-Rome and Canandaigua. With a third consecutive win this Saturday, Hebing would tie Rick Wilson at twelve atop the Career Patriot "A" Main win list.

While Hebing is out in front in the standings, the rest of the drivers are looking to position themselves for the season as it begins to unfold. Bryan Howland of Auburn, NY, sits second in points, just ahead of Jeff Cook, Mike Stelter and Rich Swarthout.

Saturday's card atop the semi-banked, 1/3-mile Stateline Speedway gets under way at 7:00 p.m.

Stateline Speedway is located nine miles southwest of Jamestown, NY, on Sugar Grove Road to Kortwright Road, then west. For more information, contact the track at the 716-664-2326 or 814-489-7866.

The 2006 Bobcat of Buffalo ASCS Patriot Sprint Group schedule consists of 22 nights of racing at fourteen different tracks throughout New York, Pennsylvania and Canada.

In its 15th year of sanctioning Sprint Car racing in the United States, the American Sprint Car Series will present approximately 180 nights of racing at nearly 100 tracks throughout 27 different states and Canada in 2006 including the National Tour and its Regional Tours (Gulf South, Mid-South, Midwest, Northern Plains, Patriot Sprint Group, Rocky Mountain, Sooner, Southern and Sprints on Dirt).
