TROYER RACE CARS TO SPONSOR CONTINGENCY AWARDS FOR
TONY JANKOWIAK/TOMMY DRUAR MEMORIAL 125 AT US OPEN

The leader in building chassis and parts for asphalt Modifieds has stepped up in support of the Tony Jankowiak/Tommy Druar Memorial 125, as part of the US Open at Lancaster Speedway.

Troyer Race Cars of Rochester, NY has donated two $500 gift certificates that will be given away as contingency awards for the Race of Champions Modified Tour 125-lap event to be held on Sunday, September 21. The gift certificates can be used on parts and services available at the Troyer shop located at 4555 Lyell Rd. in Rochester.

The first certificate will be awarded to the driver running in third place on the 37th lap of the feature. The second one will be given to the driver running in seventh on the 73rd lap. The lap numbers were chosen in honor of Tommy Druar and Tony Jankowiak, who raced cars numbered 37 and 73 respectively. Both drivers called Lancaster Speedway their home track until their lives were cut short behind the wheel in separate crashes.

Troyer Race Cars was established in 1977 and builds Modified chassis for both asphalt and dirt cars. Owner, Bill Colton, has had a long relationship with Lancaster Speedway going back to his days as a driver in the 1970s &1980s. Billís father was also a long-time supporter of the speedway as a sponsor and car owner. The elder Colton was also one of the driving forces behind developing the soft-wall technology that is used at Lancaster to protect drivers from the concrete walls during a crash.

The 26th annual US Open begins on Friday, September 19 with a practice session followed by the US Open Kickoff Party in the speedway concourse. Pit gates will open at 4 PM on Friday with practice taking place from 6-10 PM. All divisions except the Modifieds and TQ Midgets will run heats on Saturday evening followed by features for the 4-Cylinders, Legends and Sportsman. The night will be capped off by a fantastic fireworks display provided by Gisbon including a special tribute to Tony Jankowiak and Tommy Druar. Racing on Sunday will begin with Modified and TQ Midgets heats followed by the remaining features including the 125-lap main event for the Race of Champions Modified Tour.
