(Dundee, NY) The grueling racing month of June continues for the A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour as they visit Outlaw Speedway this Friday, June 16 for the second time this season.

The tour visited Outlaw Speedway back in late April when Bradford, PA driver, Jared Zimbardi clinched the victory over Bobby Breen and Jordan Thomas.

He will be joined this Friday against a stout field of competitors that includes; Darryl Ruggles, Jordan Thomas, Jonathan Preston, Joe Trenca, Kyle Drum and Steve Collins.
On Saturday, the Patriots will take on the weekly competitors of the Selinsgrove Speedway for the 14th Annual Joe Whitcomb Memorial, which pays $2,571 to win and $271 to start honoring the memory of the late open wheel competitor who succumbed to injuries that were sustained in a sprint car racing accident back in June of 2003.
Currently, Davie Franek of Wantage, NJ is the Speedway Point leader (2050) over Jason Schultz (1950), Derek Locke (1930), Chad Layton (1735), and Nate Snyder (1690). Franek was also last year’s Joe Whitcomb memorial winner.
