support we have gotten from our sponsors, especially Homak, the racers

Homak Points Update - Mulligan System Activated!
(New Castle, PA) While the first season of the Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series soldiers on and the point standings continue to shuffle, it is now time to add the “mulligan factor” to the standings. When the series was in the building phase, many drivers expressed a concern about attending all the shows and thus the format of basing the championship on the best nine (9) finishes of the registered drivers was introduced. “I thought this would be fair and would be a way to encourage more drivers to participate in this concept” noted series director Shaun Hooks “So far, after four (4) shows, sixteen (16) series drivers have participated in all races and I am very satisfied with that.”

Chris Withers win's at Raceway 7
Tom Wellner's son waved the green flag for the Tom Wellner Memorial after a three abreast pace lap led by Shaun Fawcett. When green flew pole-sitter Chris Withers led the way but in turn three outside pole sitter Fuzzy Fields got sideways and gathered it up but six cars piled up trying to avoid involvement, causing a complete restart. Withers again led from green with Fields second and Rusty Moore third. Mark Peck slapped the wall hard at lap two. At lap six Fields spun out of contention coming out of turn four. After a restart at lap nine Withers continued to open his lead with Bob Schwartzmiller second and Rusty Moore third. Chris Schneider succeeded in taking third with three laps remaining just as caution flew for Jeff Broniszewski, sitting backward against the wall in turn four. At green the field only made it to turn one when Rusty Martz spun again setting up a three lap dash for the win. Withers led Curt Bish, Chris Schneider, Shaun Hooks (up from twentieth), and last week's winner Shane Applebee to the green. Only one lap was run before caution was again over the field. Bish and Schneider made a run on Withers on the final lap with the three side by side by side coming through the final turn. Withers crossed the line first with Schneider barely getting second over Bish. Hooks was fourth all the way from twentieth at the start and Applebee fifth. On the cool down lap Withers slid into the outside wall in turn two with a flat right rear tire. Withers was pre-registered with the Penn-Ohio Series and so collected $1000 for the win. (more...)

Hooks. “In addition, should
a series registered driver win at both Raceway 7 on Friday and Eriez on
Sunday, they will earn an additional $200!” If any series driver should
win both events this weekend, and be on either all Hoosier or American
Racer Tires, they would pocket $1,900 cash plus two new tires! (more...)

high banks of Raceway 7 in Conneaut Ohio this Friday, June 13th

Conneaut Phone Company added $300 and the series will increase the
winners share by $200 courtesy of Mays Towing, if the winner is a Homak
Penn Ohio Pro Stock Driver” states series director Shaun Hooks. “So
basically its $800 to win, or $1,000 if the winner is a Homak Penn Ohio
Series registered driver.” The series opener brought a huge turnout of
46 cars, including 19 series drivers, who are competing for the $10,000
