Hebing Leads ASCS Patriots to Penn Can

TULSA, Okla. (July 17, 2006) -- Current Bobcat of Buffalo ASCS Patriot Sprint Group point leader Chuck Hebing must be literally licking his chops as the series is set for its annual stop at Penn Can Speedway in Susquehanna, PA, this Friday night.

Carrying a 123-point advantage in the series championship points race, the Ontario, NY, hotshoe is looking for his third consecutive Penn Can triumph after topping the series' stops atop the slightly banked, 3/8-mile clay oval in both 2004 and 2005.

Hebing has run his career ASCS Patriot Sprint Group win total to 14 with four triumphs this year, although he has been shut out of victory lane in the series' most recent handful of events. He has still maintained his point lead by posting three consecutive runner-up finishes in ASCS Patriot action.

Williamsville, NY, shoe Don Adamczyk enters the card ranked second after a top-ten finishing streak of seven events came to a halt when he flipped in the final laps while leading on Saturday night at Brockville Ontario Speedway.

Just 28 points behind Adamczyk is Nick Bashford of Central Square, NY, with defending series champion Bryan Howland of Auburn, NY, and Geoff Quackenbush of Pine Island, NY, rounding out the current top five.

The balance of the current top ten in ASCS Patriot Sprint Group points includes Jared Zimbardi, Brad Knab, Chris Muhleisen, Rich Swarthout and Ray Preston.

With five different winners in the last six events, Friday's action for the Bobcat of Buffalo ASCS Patriot Sprint Group at Penn Can Speedway goes green at 7:15 p.m.

Penn Can Raceway is located in Susquehanna, PA, off I-81 Exit 230, then seven miles east on State Road 171. For more information, contact the track at 570-585-9928.

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.
