ASCS Patriots at The Hill this Sunday Night

TULSA, Okla. (May 31, 2006) -- The Bobcat of Buffalo ASCS Patriot Sprint Group continues a busy spate of activity by making the series debut visit to The Hill Raceway in Bradford, PA, this Sunday night.

It not only marks the ASCS Patriots first visit to The Hill, but will be the first Sprint Car event to ever take place atop the 0x00bc-mile, high-banked clay oval.

Ontario, New York's Chuck Hebing has been on a literal tear thus far in the 2006 ASCS Patriot Sprint Group campaign, racing to victory lane in three of four events contested thus far. Rich Swarthout of Geneva, NY, is the only driver other than Hebing that has been able to crack victory lane.

After last night's victory at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park, Hebing leads defending series champion Bryan Howland of Auburn, NY, by just 16 points in the championship points race entering Sunday night's card.

Forty points off the lead pace in third is Swarthout, with Dave Wickham (Brewerton, NY) and Don Adamczyk (Williamsville, NY) rounding out the current top five in points.

Also among the top ten in current ASCS Patriot Sprint Group points are Nick Bashford (Central Square, NY), Geoff Quackenbush (Pine Island, NY), ared Zimbardi (Salamanca, NY), eff Cook (Antwerp, NY) and Brad Knab.

Sunday night's racing action is slated to get under way at 6:30 p.m.

The Hill Raceway is located near Bradford, PA, 3.6 miles east of US 219 on SR 46, then 2.9 miles northeast on SR 246, then 0.2 mile south on SR 646. For more information, contact the track at 814-465-3542.

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 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).
