Brampton, Ontario (August 14, 2014) – Historic St Thomas Raceway Park, located in Sparta, Ontario Canada, will host the DSE Sportsman Nationals presented by J&S Collision and Degroote-Hill Chevrolet-Buick GMC this up coming weekend, as the DSE Sportsman Racing Series prepares to start the second half of their Championship season with points races #7 and #8 slated to take place.
Entering into its second year on the schedule, the DSE Sportsman Nationals is looking to draw record numbers again in 2014 as Series Director Andrew Stirk hopes to build off last years successful inaugural event.
“2013 was our first venture into Western Ontario and it proved to be a great one as we saw record numbers of participants in many of our classes including Jr Dragsters and Modified Eliminator.” Stated Stirk.
Stirk would go on to add, “This year we are adding an additional $150 per day to the winner’s purse for Modified and Super Pro courtesy of a series supporter who wished to remain anonymous, and we are also running the NHRA JR Dragster Challenge which will award both Saturday and Sundays Jr Winners authentic NHRA “Wally” Trophies!”
In-addition to the extra prize money and NHRA Jr Hardware that will be available, a special Saturday only $20 Bounty will be placed on the current point leaders in not only the DSE Sportsman Racing Series but also the St Thomas Raceway Park Bracket Series points leaders who choose to run in the event this weekend.
Making this event possible is sponsorship from Jamie and Shelia Tupper of J&S Collision in Tillsonburg Ontario who are avid Drag Racers who also run and win in many Big Money Bracket Races and IHRA events. Joining J&S Collisions again for 2014 is Degroote-Hill Chevrolet-Buick GMC who feature one of Canada’s highest customer approval ratings amongst GM Dealerships.
