Revival Race: Brookfield Speedway Ready to Host STSS Crate 602 Sportsman Sunday
BROOKFIELD, NY – Another chapter in the revival.
Historic Brookfield Speedway – a quarter-mile oval shuttered in the mid-1990s and rescued by members of the Madison County Fair Board and race-loving volunteers – is thrust into the limelight this Sunday, May 28.
The Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco Crate 602 Sportsman circuit makes its first-ever visit to the revered-by-locals venue this Sunday in Round No. 2 of the Precision Hydraulic & Oil North Region.
The 25-lap event offers $1,500 to the winner plus special awards and bonuses.
During the off-season, the Brookfield surface was completely reworked with new clay. Additional track lights and caution lights have been added in addition to AMB transponder scoring and an officials’ tower inside the speedway’s historic covered grandstands.
Race cars hit the fresh clay for the first time during a Wednesday Open Practice, drawing positive reviews from competitors in the Crate 602 Sportsman, Pro Stock, Four Cylinder and Slingshot divisions.
Now, all attention turns to Sunday.
Derrick McGrew Jr., after a win earlier this month at N.Y.’s Accord Speedway, leads the STSS Crate 602 Sportsman North Region contingent into Brookfield.
A complete STSS Crate 602 Sportsman pay structure will be in place in addition to special awards and bonuses, including a $200 Hard Charger Award courtesy of Picture Perfect Pools & Spas.
The Pro Stocks/Street Stocks race 20 laps for a $600 winner’s share and $75 to take the green flag. Scenic View Campground has added a $200 Hard Charger Award for the Pro Stock/Street Stock contingent.
The Limited Sportsman make their debut at Brookfield. Thanks to Next Generation GraphiX, the 20-lap winner will receive a $300 top prize, with $200 going to second and $100 to third.
Slingshots – both Allstars and Juniors – are in action. The Allstar winner receives $300 and the Junior victor takes home $100. All starters will be paid.
