WOODHULL, NY-The Nikk L Brew Restaurant in Canisteo along with Alfred State College of Alfred, NY will be the host sponsors for the July 23, 2022 event at the Woodhull Raceway which features the return of the Patriot Sprint Tour for the 360-winged sprints.
“We lost the first PST show that was scheduled to run back on May 7 due to inclement weather. We went to work with Mike Emhoff in securing a makeup date (July 23) prior to the second and last appearance of the year for the 360 Sprints set to go on August 13.” That according to Woodhull Raceway owners, Terry and Niki Brewer.
Historically, the Patriot Sprint Tour draws good car counts and a huge fan base whenever they visit the High Banked one-third of a mile clay oval in Woodhull, NY and anticipation is running at a fever pitch as everyone is bubbling with excitement about the return of the PST.
The 360- Winged Patriot Sprint Tour will run a regular program including Heats, B-Main, if necessary, along with a Dash for Cash and A-Main feature event. Such standout drivers as former Series Champions, The Cobra, Chuck Hebing and No Panic Davey Franek will be the two favorites heading into Woodhull for the Saturday, July 23 event. For more information including the 2022 schedule, points, past winners and series champions go to www.patriorsprinttour.com.
Also, on the card it will be a complete show of the Insinger Performance Modifieds, the NAPA Crate Sportsman, the Armstrong RUSH Crate Late Models and the Joe Willcox Performance Street Stocks. In addition, the Wicked Tee’s Mini Stock and Warrior Divisions as well as the Front Wheel Drives will also be in action. The popular Hobby Stock Division will run a special feature event with the winner pocketing $800.
Originally Alfred State College was to have sponsored the May 7 PST event. Fortunately, representatives of Alfred State and the Woodhull Raceway were able to work Alfred State back onto the return of the PST as they will join the Nikk L Brew Restaurant of Canisteo to help market the July 23 show at the historic Steuben County Speedway.
Pit gates for the July 23 event open at 3:30 pm with main grandstand gates swinging one hour later at 4:30 pm.
Please be advised with the return of the Patriot Sprint Tour the General Admission Adult Ticket Price will be raised back to $18, same as when the original event was scheduled in early May 2022.
