BROWNSBURG, Ind. (June 5, 2019) – Activating an action-packed month complete with 14 events in 30 days, Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will visit the Empire State during the coming weekend, set to invade three tracks in three days across much of southern New York. Action will kick-off, officially, on Friday night, June 7, with an appearance at the always-exciting Outlaw Speedway in Dundee.
The ‘New’ Stateline Speedway in Busti, New York, will host the traveling All Stars on Saturday, June 8, followed by a stop at Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport on Sunday, June 9. All three programs will award a $5,000 top prize.
The All Stars followed a similar path in 2018 with visits to Outlaw, Stateline and Weedsport occurring in consecutive fashion. Although it was Nashville’s Paul McMahan who opened the weekend with a convincing victory at the Outlaw highbanks, it was Lemoore, California’s Carson Macedo who ruled supreme in New York during the early weeks of June, ultimately scoring back-to-back victories at Stateline and Weedsport while in command of the familiar Norman/Gaerte No. 3G.
Although Macedo will not be returning to New York to defend his victories, Paul McMahan will, seeking a second consecutive triumph at Outlaw Speedway. Joining McMahan will be a stout contingent of All Star full-timers including six-time Series champion, Dale Blaney, former USAC National Midget Series champion, Spencer Bayston, $10,000 Virginia Motor Speedway winner, Cory Eliason, former ASCS national traveler, Skylar Gee, former Port Royal Speedway champion, Brock Zearfoss, two-time All Star champion, Greg Wilson, New Oxford-native and former All Star winner, Gerard McIntyre, Western Pennsylvania’s George Hobaugh, Lancaster, Pennsylvania’s Tyler Esh, and defending Series champion, as well as current Series point leader, Aaron Reutzel, who claimed back-to-back victories at Attica Raceway Park and Fremont Speedway over Memorial Day weekend.
In addition, many of the region’s finest will follow the All Stars to New York in search of one or more $5,000 paydays including All Star owner, Tony Stewart. Stewart will join the Series during action at Outlaw Speedway on Friday, as well as at Weedsport Speedway on Sunday.
Other regional invaders include Gettysburg, Pennsylvania’s Danny Dietrich, who owns seven main event victories thus far in 2019. Dietrich intends to join the All Star travelers during their invasion of Weedsport Speedway on Sunday.
