JENNERSTOWN, Penn. (August 5, 2000) - American Speed Association ACDelco Series competitors utilizing Ford Taurus body styles will be eligible to win an additional $10,000 in the $50,000 Ricart Ford Summer Shootout, presented by #1 Ricart Ford and Cardeal. com. If any driver wins at both Jennerstown Speedway this Sunday in the Pennsylvania 300 and October 14 at Gateway International Raceway driving a Ford-bodied car, they will pick up $10,000 from the Ricart Ford.
The first event in the Ricart Ford Summer Shootout at Nashville (Tenn.) Speedway USA, was unclaimed by a Ford-bodied car, so the full $50,000 cannot be picked up by any of the competitors.
Included in the Ford Taurus cars entered at Jennerstown is ASA veteran Scott Hansen, who picked up his 25th career victory at Salem (Ind.) Speedway on July 22. It was the first win for a Ford in ASA competition since 1998. Hansen dominated at the half-mile, high-banked track, and leads all Ford competitors heading into Jennerstown.
Jack Landis, who sits 12th in points, will also be piloting a Taurus out of the Noah Yoder stable. Landis, along with a Ford entry driven by rookie Paul Dallenbach are among the top contenders eligible for the extra award money if they should take the checkers at both tracks.
The $50,000 Summer Shootout is in addition to the $170,000 posted throughout the 2000 season for Taurus competitors that finish in the top-three positions of any ASA ACDelco Series event. Those winnings are distributed at $3,000 for first place, $2,000 for second, and $1,000 for third place showings.
Ricart Ford, based in Columbus, Ohio, was selected as the #1 Dealer in America in 1999 by Ward's Dealer Business.
The Pennsylvania 300 will take the green flag at 1 p.m. (Eastern) at Jennerstwon Speedway. The on-track fan autograph session starts at 11 a.m. and the pre-race activities get underway at 12:15 p.m. Tickets are still available at the track and are $20 for adults and free for youngsters 12 and under.
