LITTLE VALLEY, NY — official release — The 2015 edition of the BRP (Bicknell Racing Products) CanAm Series tour will begin on Sunday May 25 at the Little Valley Speedway. As previously announced family and friends of Duke DuClon working in cooperation with Close Racing Supply have added $558 to the race winner’s share of the purse for Duke’s race. That results in $1558 to the race winner.
Today we are delighted to announce that another $758 has been added to the purse. More friends of Duke including Levi Watson Racing, Tidd’s Towing, and Bicknell Racing Products have added to the purse for Duke’s race. The latest additions are to positions two thru five. As a result the race runner-up will earn $758, third will pay $558, and fourth and fifth will each pay $258.
John Charlesworth and his team at the Cattaraugus County Fairgrounds facility are ready for a spectacular start of their race season with Duke’s event for BRP 360 late models and NDRL late models headlining the program which will also include E-Mods, crates, and streets. Gates will open at 3:30 for racing action at 6:30 Sunday.
John Waters won the opening LVS event last year and hopes to repeat this year. The odds makers at the Casino call it even between Waters, the 2013 Series champion, and Bruce Miller, the winningest BRP driver at LVS.
Already this year Waters has won two BRP CanAm Series weekly events at Woodhull and the opener at Freedom. This clearly demonstrates that “Hot John” is hot again and off to a good start on his goal to repeat as the Series champion. The Whitesville, NY driver has three career wins at LVS and several top five runs at the super fast half-mile.
Bruce Miller owns the BRP CanAm win record at Little Valley with eight beginning with the first ever tour event in 2003. Since then the Wellsville, NY driver has added seven tour and several weekly event wins. Miller’s 2014 record to date is a second (to Waters) in the Woodhull opener and a DNF there last week. Miller’s Black Beauty #80 will be ready for a run to the roses on Sunday for Duke’s race.
Dave DuBois and Adam Depuy are the other BRP CanAm weekly event winners so far this year. Both will be looking for the $1558 and a jump start on the Series championship on Sunday. Bob Close, Beamer Guzzardi, Jared Hill, Steve LeBarron, Josh Smith, Mike Wonderling, Mickey Wonderling, Glenn Whritenour, and John Zimmerman will be joined by another dozen or so all hoping for a victory on Sunday.
