ASCS Mid-Atlantic Title on the Line Sunday Night at SSP

TULSA, Okla. (August 27, 2007) -- The American Sprint Car Series will crown its first champion of the 2007 season this coming weekend, as Susquehanna Speedway Park in Newberrytown, PA, will host the season-ending championship event for the ASCS Mid-Atlantic Region.

And the inaugural ASCS Mid-Atlantic Region championship is literally up for grabs, with Tim Hogue, Coleman Gulick and George Suprick set to battle it out atop the semi-banked, 4/10-mile clay oval.

With ten of eleven nights of action in the books, Hogue of Lumberton, NJ, enters the championship finale with a meager 12-point lead over the 14-year-old Gulick, who hails from Binghamton, NY.

Just 20 points behind Gulick entering Sunday's card is his teammate, George Suprick of Clarks Summit, PA.

Currently fourth in ASCS Mid-Atlantic Region points is current ASCS Patriots points leader Chuck Hebing, who has claimed ten ASCS feature wins this year. Geoff Quackenbush of Warwick, NY, rounds out the current top five with the balance of the current top ten including Justin Barger (Montrose, NY), Bryan Howland (Auburn, NY), Jimmy Stitzel (Shoemakersville, PA), Jared Zimbardi (Salamanca, NY) and Scott Kreutter (Alden, NY).

Sunday's racing action goes green at 6:00 p.m.

Susquehanna Speedway Park is located in Newberrytown, PA, off I-83 Exit 32, then 1.4 miles northwest on SR 382 to York Road, and then 1.3 miles south. For more information, contact the track at 717-938-9170.
