runner-up at the Chemung Speedrome to Matt Hirschman.

consecutive victories and is currently in second in the point
standings. Hirschman a six-time RoC Tour Champion trails Hossfeld by
only 32 markers entering this Saturday nightís event. The duo of
Hossfeld and Hirschman have been a sometimes bitter rivalry over the
past several years and the two are expected again to be factors in
the RoC 100 on Saturday. Hirschman is also a back to back winner of
the Sunoco Race of Champions Modified 200 held at the Oswego
Speedway. The 64th edition of that race will occur on September 14th

currently third in the point standings. He also recorded a victory
in the Holland Speedway 100 back in early July in front of his home
town fans. Mike Leaty accounts for the other feature win this season
on the Tour. Like Jankowiak, Leaty recorded his victory in front of
his hometown fans at the Spencer Speedway in Williamson, NY.

add to the importance of a solid finish.
