Patriot Sprint Tour Returns to Ransomville Friday, Bonnell’s Collision Center Western Weekend Event at Mercer To Be Made Up Saturday

RANSOMVILLE, NY – With only six full point races now remaining on the 2017 A-Verdi Storage Containers Patriot Sprint Tour schedule, the championship is still up for grabs as Steve Collins now only trails Jared Zimbardi by 26 points, and Kyle Drum is not far behind only trailing by 78 points.

The tour continues this Friday at the Ransomville Speedway where Steve Collins took his first win of 2017 over Drum and Zimbardi back in June. These three drivers will lead another stout field of PST regulars to the Big R that will also include Jordan Thomas, Derek Jonathan, and Josh Azzi.

The following night will be a makeup event at the Mercer Raceway Park, part of the second annual Bonnell’s Collison Center Western Weekend, which was supposed to occur on July 1 but was canceled due to rain. The race will pay $4,000 to the winner, with $325 just to take the green. Last season, Kyle Drum scored the big pay day over Dennis Wagner and Jared Zimbardi.
