Effective for the 2020 campaign, the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Pro Mod Series has made the decision to allow legal Econo Mod competitors from its sanctioned tracks to enter the tour’s events. In addition, racers from other speedways and series Econo Mod division can have their rules packages reviewed for conformity.

All competitors must be on the current RUSH Pro Mod Hoosier Tires. Furthermore, bump stops will not be permitted.

The $15,050 Sweeney Weekly Series points fund will include $3,500 for first and $300 for 20th in 2020. The final standings will be determined by a drivers’ best 12 finishes and only RUSH Pro Mod-legal member racers will be eligible. In addition, the annual “Manufacturers Night” presented by MSD Performance, with over $12,000 of valuable product giveaways, will be held at a location and date soon to be announced. All competing RUSH Pro Mod-legal racers will again be eligible to win a product package valued at a minimum of $300 on this night.

Total cash points funds and contingencies awarded to RUSH Pro Mod racers in 2020 is once again expected to exceed $27,000.

In addition to weekly racing at Stateline Speedway (Busti, New York) on Saturday nights and Old Bradford (Bradford, Pennsylvania) on Sunday nights, New York’s Genesee Speedway has expressed an interest to host events. Furthermore, it’s expected the McKean County Fair race will return to McKean County Raceway (East Smethport, Pennsylvania) in August.

At all RUSH Pro Mod events, member racers will get credit for their finishes toward the 2020 championship points fund. Econo Mod drivers will not be eligible for RUSH Championship points funds but will receive local track points.

The 2020 season marks year number five for the RUSH Pro Mods. Justin Carlson was the inaugural champion in 2016, while Dennis Lunger, Jr. has won the last three titles.
