ASCS PATRIOTS TO REACH 100 POINT RACES THIS WEEKEND

TULSA, Okla. (June 16, 2008) - The first place the Patriots ever ran was Stateline; the second was Eriez. This weekend, races 100 and 101 will be run at those same two facilities.

Stateline Speedway just south of Jamestown, NY will host their annual June sprint event this Saturday at the tightly corned 1/3-mile. This track renown for their late models creates some of the best sprint car races in the area often making it a major attraction.

Former Patriot owner Tom Taber won the inaugural event on May 3, 2003. After a two year hiatus, George Suprick out dueled Bryan Howland for this win. Rich Swarthout won his second career win in 2006 while Chuck Hebing held off Jared Zimbardi last year.

Eriez has already hosted one Patriot event this year, with John Schuyler picking up his first career sprint car win in the closest race in series history. Don Adamczyk, Bryan Howland and Bubba Broderick were hot on the No. 3T and will be back to join with the rest of the Patriot Stars for this Sunday Evening event.

Scott Bonnell, who won the second Patriot race ever in 2003 at Eriez will sponsor both "Four Laps of Fame" Dashes with his highly popular Bonnell's Collision Centers in Fairview and Erie, PA.

Chuck Hebing makes his return to Southwest NY/ Northwest PA driving the Bud Burlew-owned Junk Yard Dog No. 28 for the first time. Hebing is the only driver to win a Patriot Feature with multiple numbers. If he was to win this weekend, it would be his fourth different number behind him in a Victory Lane Picture.

Bryan Howland currently leads the point stands, but still is in search of his first win in two years. Jared Zimbardi is mounting a charge from second in the standings with Don Adamczyk and Chris Muhleisen within striking distance.
