Senior Services Insurance Agency to present Sportsman ‘Premium Dash’ During ‘Empire State Challenge’ on May 21

WEEDSPORT, NY – The ‘Empire State Challenge’ will officially open the 2017 racing calendar at Weedsport Speedway on Sunday, May 21 featuring the Craftsman World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series and the Sportsman Shootout Series, including the Sportsman ‘Premium Dash’ presented by Senior Services Insurance Agency.

A total purse of $350 will be available for Sportsman competitors in the ‘Premium Dash’ on May 21 with $200 going to the winner, $100 to second, and $50 to third.

An extension of the regular racing program for the Sportsman Shootout Series that evening, full details on the dash procedure will be available in the coming weeks.

“The Sportsman division has always been one of my favorite classes,” said Tim Bowman, co-owner of Senior Services Insurance Agency.  “They don’t always race for the biggest purses so I thought I’d sweeten the pot and give them a much deserved dash in what will be a packed house with the World of Outlaws coming to town.”

Also signing on as a VIP hospitality suite partner for the evening, Senior Services Insurance Agency will enjoy a full night of racing from one of the best seats in the house.

“The Heinkes along with Jimmy and Shannon Phelps have put the Speedway on top as one of the best facilities in the northeast,” said Bowman.  “I’m happy to help the Sportsman out with a little extra bonus.”
