Penn Can - Woodhull Double Next For BRP CanAm

            …PA - NY Border Battle

 

 

St Catharines, ONT…The Bicknell Racing Products (BRP) CanAm Series Tour has a double-header weekend set for June 21 and June 22.  On Friday the Tour will make its first ever visit to Penn Can Speedway in Susquehanna, PA.  On Saturday the Tour makes its second stop of the year at Woodhull Raceway in Woodhull, NY.

 

John Waters, current Tour point leader shares, “The reports out of Penn Can (Speedway) are great.  I am excited to go there and try something different.  I have talked to a few guys who went last week to watch the (ROC) modified race where they had about 70 modifieds (actually 67).  Anyplace that attracts all the heavy hitters in that class is fine with me.  I will be coming in from Vermont where I am working.  I will meet the team and car there.

 

“As for Woodhull, I am here every week.  I am here, but not winning in Series weekly events.  I hope that I can change that in the Tour event.  We need these races, the weather is just killing us.  I am planning on sunshine and two wins when we get back at it.”

 

Waters is correct, the weather is “killing us.” Rain or the threat of rain has forced cancellation of four of the six BRP Tour events scheduled through mid June.  The most recent cancellation was the Father’s Day Sunday Special planned at Black Rock Speedway.

 

Bruce Miller, the defending Series champion, is very ready to get back to racing.  The Black Rock cancellation was a major disappointment for Miller since he has a win and an almost win at that track after three starts there.  Miller’s Black Beauty #80 will be ready for the trip to Susquehanna, PA on Friday afternoon.

 

The two completed Tour events have produced some great racing and more is on tap with the Penn Can - Woodhull Double this weekend.  To date 36 drivers have entered with another 20 or so that have stayed close to home for Series weekly events.

 

BRP CanAm Series Tour top 15 as of June 23: John Waters - 200, Glenn Whritenour - 180, Jeremy Wonderling - 180, Bruce Miller - 163, Mike Wonderling - 145, Brady Wonderling - 144, Brian Knowles - 142, Steve LeBarron - 134, Jason Knowles - 127, Jay McConnell - 122, Mikey Wonderling - 117, Cecil LaBarron - 106, Ray Bliss - 97, Jared Hill - 84, Quinn Sutherland - 84

 

Notes:  In Series weekly event action last weekend Glenn Whritenour nipped John Waters at the line to win his fourth of eight at Woodhull…Mikey Wonderling won his first ever at Raceway 5 in a great battle with defending track champion Dave DuBois…Dale LeBarron is looking for a driver for his #19 BRP car at Penn Can since the son Frank must skip the race to tend to business at Troups Creek Auto Parts…Quinn Sutherland had his Miles-Agency.com Lazer on display at the Penn Yan Cruisin’ Night car show last week.  It got more attention than any of the 200+ cars on display…After the PA - NY Border Battle the Tour is off to Little Valley on July 4
