BROWNSBURG, Ind. (September 8, 2021) – Perhaps the most sought-after prize on the FloRacing All Star Circuit of Champions presented by Mobil 1 campaign trail, the 54th edition of the Tuscarora 50 sits next on the All Star September schedule, complete with three, full days of competition, all of which headlined with the 50-lap, $54,000-to-win, Tuscarora 50 main event that will be contested on Saturday, September 11.
Adding to the weekend hype, all A-Main qualifiers will be awarded a minimum of $1,500, with the top-24 non-qualifiers participating in a separate Non-Qualifiers Race awarding $2,000-to-win. The Non-Qualifiers Race winner will also earn an automatic bid for the 2022 Tuscarora 50 main event.
Tuscarora 50 preliminary competition will begin on Thursday, September 9, with an $8,000-to-win main event, followed by a second preliminary main event on Friday, September 10, awarding $10,000 to the winner.
“Sunshine” Tyler Courtney will lead the All Star charge into Juniata County as the current All Star championship leader. The Indianapolis, Indiana-native is an eight-time winner with “America’s Series” this season, earning his most recent triumph during Thunder on the Hill action at Grandview Speedway on Thursday, August 26. Impressive enough, Sunshine has amassed 36 top-ten finishes in 41 point-earning main events.
Rudeen Racing’s Cory Eliason, a two-time winner on the tour thus far in 2021, is second in the current All Star driver championship chase, followed by “Hunter Percent” Hunter Schuerenberg, Zeb Wise, and Cap Henry.
Powering through a multi-month dry spell, Eliason finally etched his name on the 2021 winner’s block with a score at I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Michigan, on August 20. Incidentally, just three starts later, Eliason scored again, this time during Lincoln Speedway’s Kramer Klash worth $7,300.
Schuerenberg, Wise, and Henry each have been victorious on the 2021 All Star trail with Wise earning one of the most recent. The Angola, Indiana-native found $5,000 in Attica’s Ambush opener on Friday, September 3. Just one night later, Wise finished second to Sam McGhee Motorsports’ Spencer Bayston. Wise also earned the 2021 Rayce Rudeen Foundation Race victory worth $26,000 in late May. The Kokomo Speedway triumph was Wise’s first of the season.
The talent-filled All Star roster will be forced to face-off against Pennsylvania’s finest during the three-day Tuscarora showstopper including the defending Tuscarora 50 champion, Lance Dewease. Danny Dietrich, a two-time All Star winner in 2021, will also be on the hunt for the Tuscarora crown. The Gettysburg, Pennsylvania-native scored the recent Labor Day Classic victory worth $6,000.
