BRP CanAm Series Tour Start Set For Sunday
by Dave Sully
...More Added To The
Purse For The Duke DuClon Memorial...
Little Valley, NY...The 2015 edition of the BRP (Bicknell Racing
Products) CanAm Series tour will begin on Sunday May 25 at the Little
Valley Speedway. As previously announced family and friends of Duke
DuClon working in cooperation with Close Racing Supply have added $558
to the race winner's share of the purse for Duke's race. That results in
$1558 to the race winner.
Today we are delighted to announce that another $758 has been added to
the purse. More friends of Duke including Levi Watson Racing, Tidd's
Towing, and Bicknell Racing Products have added to the purse for Duke's
race. The latest additions are to positions two thru five. As a result
the race runner-up will earn $758, third will pay $558, and fourth and
fifth will each pay $258.
John Charlesworth and his team at the Cattaraugus County Fairgrounds
facility are ready for a spectacular start of their race season with
Duke's event for BRP 360 late models and NDRL late models headlining the
program which will also include E-Mods, crates, and streets. Gates will
open at 3:30 for racing action at 6:30 Sunday.
John Waters won the opening LVS event last year and hopes to repeat this
year. The odds makers at the Casino call it even between Waters, the
2013 Series champion, and Bruce Miller, the winningest BRP driver at LVS.
Already this year Waters has won two BRP CanAm Series weekly events at
Woodhull and the opener at Freedom. This clearly demonstrates that "Hot
John" is hot again and off to a good start on his goal to repeat as the
Series champion. The Whitesville, NY driver has three career wins at LVS
and several top five runs at the super fast half-mile.
Bruce Miller owns the BRP CanAm win record at Little Valley with eight
beginning with the first ever tour event in 2003. Since then the
Wellsville, NY driver has added seven tour and several weekly event
wins. Miller's 2014 record to date is a second (to Waters) in the
Woodhull opener and a DNF there last week. Miller's Black Beauty #80
will be ready for a run to the roses on Sunday for Duke's race.
Dave DuBois and Adam Depuy are the other BRP CanAm weekly event winners
so far this year. Both will be looking for the $1558 and a jump start on
the Series championship on Sunday. Bob Close, Beamer Guzzardi, Jared
Hill, Steve LeBarron, Josh Smith, Mike Wonderling, Mickey Wonderling,
Glenn Whritenour, and John Zimmerman will be joined by another dozen or
so all hoping for a victory on Sunday.
