A Big 2015 ahead for Rudolph
Momentum in racing can be a huge wave to ride. Erick Rudolph looks to ride that wave after a successful 2014. A true rookie in a dirt big block, he garnered 3 wins including one on the Super DIRTcar Series trail. Paired with Mike Payne, that resulted in a 6th place series points finish. On top of that Erick had 5 wins and defended his 2013 DIRTcar 358 Series crown with a championship in the family owned #25.
With the 2015 season upon us, Erick is gearing up for an ambitious schedule. The Mike Payne Racing #7z will be the primary big block ride. This team will attack the Super DIRTcar Series along with weekly visits to the “Land of Legends” Canandaigua Speedway. Randy Chrysler Racing will also have the talented youngster at the keyboard for select ROC, STSS and other open big block events.
New for 2015 will be rides with New Jersey based Mike Iles Racing for shows yet to be announced. Also two new Bicknell chassis are being prepped at the #25 shop for select 358 shows. A list of tracks include Accord, Albany-Saratoga, Autodrome Drummond, Autodrome Granby, Big Diamond, Bridgeport, Brewerton, Brockville, Charlotte, Cornwall, Expo, Five Mile Point, Fonda, Fulton, Georgetown, Glen Ridge, Grandview, I-88, Lebanon Valley, Merrittville, Middletown, Mohawk, New Egypt, Ohsweken, Penn-Can, Raceway 7, Ransomville, Rolling Wheels, Syracuse, Utica-Rome, Weedsport & Woodhull. Tentatively planned, over 100 starts are penciled in.
To endure such a schedule, it takes a lot of support. A big thank you goes out to Page Trucking, LAX Press, Exit 40 Truck Repair, Honeoye Auto Parts, Chrysler Family Racing, Bicknell Racing Products, Snyder Industries, Brigham Concrete, Creekside Sales & Service and all the others that make it all possible.
