All Star action set to resume with visits to Stateline Speedway and Sharon Speedway on July 9-11

All Star Circuit of Champions

By Tyler Altmeyer
BROWNSBURG, Ind. (July 7, 2021) – After a two weekend hiatus, Tony Stewart’s FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 will resume the 2021 season with a multi-race stretch through southern New York and eastern Ohio, set to headline three events over three days at two different facilities. Action will kick-off, officially, with a one night stay at Stateline Speedway in Busti, New York, on Friday, July 9. The lone All Star visit to the Empire State will award a $6,000 payday.

A short, but competitive history at Stateline Speedway, “America’s Series” has visited the Busti short track on just three occasions, most recently in 2019 when Dale Blaney, a National Sprint Car Hall of Famer, all-time Series win leader, and now All Star official, scored the main event victory.

The weekend will continue just two hours southwest of Busti, New York, in Hartford, Ohio, where the All Star Circuit of Champions will revisit Sharon Speedway for a two-day blockbuster on Saturday and Sunday, July 10-11. Awarding a total winner’s share equaling $14,000, the two-day Sharon Speedway takeover will activate with the highly sought after Lou Blaney Memorial on Saturday, honoring National Sprint Car Hall of Famer and former Sharon Speedway track champion, Lou Blaney. Retiring from competition in 2005, Blaney garnered well over 400 wins across the sprint car and modified ranks, earning such titles as the 1966 Williams Grove Speedway National Open.

Vienna, West Virginia’s Cale Conley is the defending Lou Blaney Memorial champion, securing a $7,500 payday in 2020 over Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason and California invader, Rico Abreu; the 2021 edition will award an $8,000 payday.

The All Star Circuit of Champions’ invasion of Sharon Speedway will resume on Sunday, July 11, with the annual Justin Snyder’s Salute to the Troops program presented by Self Made Racing, honoring military veteran and open wheel advocate, the late Justin Snyder. Derek Snyder, owner and founder of Self Made Racing, as well as the executive manager and partner of Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC in Boardman, Ohio, will honor his brother with the season’s final All Star visit to Sharon Speedway, set to award a $6,000 payday.

Sharon Speedway has already hosted the All Star Circuit of Champions twice in 2021, once for the Buckeye Cup in early May and once again on June 15 for Ohio Sprint Speedweek. Justin Peck, the primary wheelman for Buch Motorsports and a three-time Series winner this season, captured the Buckeye Cup victory. The Monrovia, Indiana-native was in contention for victory during the second Series appearance amid Ohio Sprint Speedweek, but was ultimately forced to settle for third. “Double-D” Danny Dietrich, Speedweek’s Pennsylvania Posse invader who eventually finished second in the week’s final standings, was the Sharon Speedway Speedweek victor, leading every circuit for a $6,000 prize.

Clauson Marshall Racing’s Tyler Courtney will lead the All Star Circuit of Champions into battle through New York and Ohio, leading the current driver and owner championship chases. The Indianapolis, Indiana-native owns five victories on the season, most recently on June 4 during action at Wilmot Raceway in Wilmot, Wisconsin.

Cory Eliason is currently second in the All Star driver chase, followed by Hunter Schuerenberg, Zeb Wise, and Bill Balog.
