BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 10, 2019) – Tony Stewart’s Ollie’s Bargain Outlet All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will continue the month of July with a big money stretch in the Empire State, ready to do battle at three different tracks over three straight days all while chasing a total winner’s share equalling $22,000. The three day march across central and southern New York will activate, officially, on Friday evening, July 12, at the Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, New York. The Friday night showcase will award a $5,000 top prize.
The weekend will resume on Saturday night, July 13, at the home of the hard clay – Orange County Fair Speedway in Middletown, New York. Perhaps the largest oval on the schedule, a sprawling 5/8-mile, the visit to Orange County will be accompanied by a main event purse exceeding $33,000; $10,000 to the main event winner, as well as a minimum of $600 to each feature starter.
Speaking of big money, the three-day swing through New York will conclude on Sunday evening, July 14, with a visit to the ‘Valley of Speed’ – Lebanon Valley Speedway in West Lebanon, New York. Certainly synonymous with big action and high speed, the Sunday night blockbuster at Lebanon Valley Speedway will award a $7,000 top prize, as well as a minimum of $1,000 to each main event starter. With all positions considered, the main event’s total purse equals a staggering $39,450.
Leading Series winner, as well as defending All Star champion, Aaron Reutzel, will lead the All Star Circuit of Champions charge into New York on Friday afternoon. The Clute, Texas-native owns five All Star victories in 2019, most recently conquering action at Lernerville Speedway on Friday, June 5, and currently sits on top of the championship point standings by a 10-point margin over six-time All Star and Ohio Sprint Speedweek champion, Dale Blaney.
