$1000-To-Win ASCS Carolina Sprint Series 305 Blue Ridge Bash At Harris Speedway Rescheduled For This Saturday, July 26th!



$1000-To-Win ASCS Carolina Sprint Series 305 Blue Ridge Bash At Harris Speedway Rescheduled For This Saturday, July 26th!

Tom Baker - Charlotte, N.C. - Rain got the best of nearly every on North Carolina this weekend, but the ASCS Carolina Sprint Series 305 Sprint Cars will now make their debut at Harris Speedway in Rutherfordton, N.C. on Saturday, July 26th with the running of the 1st Annual Blue Ridge Bash.

The 20-lap feature race, which will follow ButlerBuilt qualifying heats and the Ti22 Dash race for the sprint cars, will pay $1000 to win. A bonus of $500 will be awarded to the driver who is the highest average finishing non-winner of this show combined with the October 16th and 17th Monster Mash show at Harris later this year.

"All of us with the Carolina Sprint Series were disappointed we couldn't run last Saturday, but we are excited to be working with Scott Childress and his staff at Harris Speedway to launch a new era in open wheel racing in the Carolinas beginning this weekend," Series Owner/Director Tom Baker said. "We've added ButlerBuilt Professional Seat Systems to our list of motorsports partners with our heat races and an additional $50 certificate for the Furthest Tow Award beginning this weekend, and we will hopefully have 2013 Carolinas 305 Champion Johnny Petrozelle back as well provided he's cleared by the doctors to run this weekend."

Petrozelle suffered a compression fracture in his back in a race at Carolina Speedway earlier this season, but is hopeful he will be cleared before week's end to get back behind the wheel.

A $500 Bonus will be awarded to the non-winner with the highest average finish of both Harris Speedway ASCS Carolina Sprint Series races this season combined.

A $200 "Farthest Tow" Award and the $50 ButlerBuilt Certificate will be paid out to the racer who comes from furthest away to compete in the Blue Ridge Bash on Saturday, courtesy of Gregory's Original Restaurant in Rutherfordton, N.C.

Racing Electronics has agreed to become the series' official communications partner.

ButlerBuilt Professional Seat Systems will be part of the series' driver safety program as well as providing product certificates for all heat race winners for the year.

802 Solutions, manufacturer of the Crash Pad risk reduction driver safety line of products, has also signed on as part of the program's emphasis on driver safety products.

LJ Dezigns is the official staff apparel supplier for the Carolina Sprint Series.

The Carolina Sprint Series also welcomes Saldana Racing Products, and DMI as motorsports partners for this race and the 2014 season.

"We are very thankful for each and every one of our motorsports partners, " Baker said. "We look forward to building and growing with each of them as we do our best to provide racers and fans with the finest in open wheel racing in the Carolina region and beyond!"

The July 26th "Blue Ridge Bash" race will provide a valuable tune-up for the two-day ASCS 305 Sprint Car Show to be held on the track's Monster Mash Weekend October 16th an 17th.
