    Team owner Dave DeLange of Lockport, New York has unveiled the 2008 schedule of races for DeLange Racing. The aggressive program will include 22 dates and 31 races. The team, led by accomplished teenage driver Erick Rudolph of Ransomville, will travel to ten different tracks across five states and compete in three major Modified series along the east coast as well as eight weekly racing events in Western New York.
    The former Lancaster Raceway Park, now under new management and renamed Dunn Tire Raceway Park, will remain the home base for DeLange Racing. The team will visit the Lancaster, New York speedway eight times in 2008. The track is celebrating its 50th season of racing this year and the DeLange squad will help commemorate the occasion at the official Anniversary program on June 28.
    The team will begin the year on March 22 with a trip to renowned Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, North Carolina for a 150-lap NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour event. It will be the first-ever NASCAR Touring race for both Rudolph and the DeLange group. The team will then head back north to visit two famed Connecticut racetracks for the first time; Thompson International Speedway and Stafford Motor Speedway. These visits will mark the teams initial venture on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. The team will also compete in NASCAR Tour races at Spencer Speedway in Williamson, New York, Chemung Speedrome in Chemung, New York, Mansfield Motorsports Park in Mansfield, Ohio, and New Hampshire International Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire during the season.
    The team will also race in seven events on the Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Tour in 2008. Highlighting these seven races will be the 58th Annual Sunoco Race of Champions at Oswego Speedway on September 19-20 along with the 20th Annual US Open at Dunn Tire Raceway Park on September 27-28.
    Im very excited about our race schedule for 2008, proclaim Dave DeLange. Were very happy to have Dunn Tire Raceway Park as a major part of our schedule once again. The Buffalo area is home for our team and many of our fans as well as our fine sponsors; Original Pizza Logs, PrimeTyme Motorsports and Brigham Concrete. We are also looking forward to returning to the Race of Champions Tour this season. It is a very competitive series and we look forward to meeting the challenge it will present to us.
    Im really enthused about competing on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tours for the first time, continued DeLange. The NASCAR teams represent the best in Modified racing. Im looking forward to racing on such historic tracks as Caraway, Stafford, Thompson and Loudon, as well as my first-ever visit to Mansfield. Racing on the NASCAR Tours has long been a dream of mine and this season Ill finally be able to make it happen. I cant wait to get started.
