Ed Laboon Memorial at PPMS Event Information – Agenda, Driver Paperwork, Payout, Rules

As drivers gear up for one of the biggest Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Series tour races of the 2024 season, Vince Laboon, promoter of the Ed Laboon Memorial event at Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Motor Speedway has announced the agenda and purse payout and contingency prizes for this Saturday, June 8th. PPMS will be doing their own driver registration (print and complete for quicker registration) and payout paperwork, as well as the pill draw and line ups. There will be an extensive pre tech and post tech so be sure you read the 2024 Homak Penn Ohio Pro Stock Series rules (just because you ran it like that before doesn’t make it legal.)
