RACE OF CHAMPIONS ASPHALT MODIFIED SERIES TO REACH MILESTONE EVENT AT LANCASTER NATIONAL SPEEDWAY ON THURSDAY, JUNE 28 WITH OL’ BOY CUP IV

Each time the Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Series takes to the track it writes another chapter in modified racing history but this Thursday night, the Race of Champions will wave the green flag on the Ol’ Boy Cup 60 IV presented by Thermal Foams at Lancaster (N.Y.) National Speedway which will mark the 250th race in Series history and the 50th race that the Series competes in at Lancaster. The race is also in honor of one of Lancaster’s biggest supporters, Bill Colton.

Colton of North Tonawanda, N.Y., in a cooperative effort with former Lancaster an originating partner of the Race of Champion Series, Alex Friesen from Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario installed the original foam blocks (the original soft wall barriers) at Lancaster which were produced in Kenmore, N.Y., at Thermal Foams.

48 different drivers have won races since the opening season of the series in 1994. Currently, Chuck Hossfeld of Ransomville, N.Y., has the most series victories with nine (9) at Lancaster and he’s looking to register another victory Thursday.

“We’ve worked really hard to get our Modified program back to where it needs to be,” stated Hossfeld, who established the fast time in the first two series races of 2018. “This race means a lot to me because Bill Colton gave me my start in modified racing and became a very close friend. I miss him a lot and am looking forward to racing in his honor Thursday night.”

Tyler Rypkema of Owego, N.Y., is the defending race champion of the Ol’ Boy Cup, where he held off Hossfeld to earn his first and only series victory to date.

The Race of Champions Super Stock Series also joins the card for a 30-lap event. Tim Gullo of Elmira, N.Y., currently leads the championship standings and is the defending Series champion. Gullo topped Chris Finnochario of Ontario, N.Y., and Chuck Anderson of Alden, N.Y., in the season opener at Lancaster.
