COMPETITION SUSPENSION INC. JOINS MID-ATLANTIC SPRINT SERIES SPONSOR ROSTER FOR 2017

BROWNSBURG, IN

By ERIKA PALMAI WAGNER

Competition Suspension Inc. (CSI) has joined the growing list of contingency partners with the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series, becoming the first of three heat race title sponsors for the 2017 season. CSI will be providing a $50 gift certificate to the winner of heat race #1 at each MASS event.

“We are happy to be a part of series which supports the Racesaver ideology which is growing stronger and steadier each year,” head of marketing at CSI, Brent Beauchamp stated. “Racesaver is a fantastic stepping stone into a full-sized sprint car, as well as an affordable way to be able to keep racing a sprint car with a working man’s budget.”

Located in their 9,500 square foot facility in Brownsburg, Indiana, Competition Suspension Inc. was founded in 2009, choosing to focus on short track technology since they believed that “attention was lacking in this area”. Their motto is to “build the best shocks in the industry, not cutting corners on anything, while producing reasonably priced shocks for every racer”. Responsible for over 2,500 feature wins and counting, numerous track, regional and national championships world wide, CSI is committed to perfection, passion and constantly pushing the envelope in developing the latest technologies in order to improve the performance of their shocks and components.

Offering numerous services such as shock repair, dynoing, torsion bar analysis, spring rating and custom engineering on any suspension part or accessory you may need, Competition Suspension Inc. has a small, but dedicated staff of racers who care about the quality of their product as well as keeping customer satisfaction as one of their main goals. CSI has four different shock packages made exclusively for 305 winged sprint cars, which differentiate according to track conditions. More information on these packages can be found on their website at www.csishocks.com.

“CSI is first class operation, and their product is something that I have been loyal to since 2013,” 2016 IMCA/TSRS champion Tim Tanner Jr. expressed. “They have always been very easy to talk to on the phone, and they sell you just what you need to get you into victory lane”.

“When I finally switched over to CSI shocks last year, the stability of my car was noticeably better,” Tommy Carberry, a 2016 feature winner replied when asked about his experience with Competition Suspension Inc. “I can call any of the support staff at CSI at anytime, and they will always point me in the right direction”.

CSI can be contacted by phone (317-858-8775), email (garrett@csishocks.com) or by fax (317-858-8766). Please check out their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/csishocks/ or their website at www.csishocks.com.

MID-ATLANTIC SPRINT SERIES FINALIZES 2017 RULES AND ANNOUNCES SEASON
SPONSORS AT PRE-SEASON MEETING

Penndel, Pa. February 12, 2017 ..... With the first race of the season only seventy-six days away, officials and members of the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series gathered at the Penndel Fire Hall in Penndel, PA for a pre-season meeting to go over rules and policies that will be enforced and followed during the 2017 season.

“After today’s meeting, with everyone’s thoughts and concerns being heard, we tied up a few loose ends concerning handicapping, a points structure and visitor policy, as well as other issues mentioned during the meeting,” Regional Director Eddie Wagner commented. “Our final rule book will be updated and released by the end of this week, in time for everyone to review them and prepare for our season opener at Bridgeport on April 30th”.

Handicapping for the heat races will be determined by a pill draw for a starting position at the beginning of every night. Only MASS members will be included in this pill draw, with “visitors” having to start in the back their assigned heat race. Features will be inverted or re-drawn, depending on a pill which will be pulled by the winner of the first heat race. Pills will be determined by the number of heats, so if there are three heat races, pills that can be possibly drawn are two REDRAW pills, and pills marked 1-9. “Visitors” who qualify into the feature can be included in feature handicapping, but they will not be able to start any better than fifth place.

Non-members will also not be eligible for contingency prizes given out throughout the night, and will only be subjected to receive the advertised purse.

“Regarding the points policy, it was voted that we follow the IMCA National Points, with it being our primary points standings for the season,” Wagner said. “The IMCA points standing is universal amongst all Racesaver divisions nation-wide, and in order to not to put ourselves in a situation we had last season with having two separate points champions, I think this will make it easier, and worthwhile as IMCA has lots of positive benefits including a cash points fund and a chance to become a National Champion”. With the IMCA benefits, the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series also will be adding multiple year end bonuses for teams who are members with the series, including cash collected from the weekly 50/50 drivers fund, and contingencies provided by marketing partners including a brand new DMI 305 XR3 Bulldog rear, a custom helmet paint job to the points champion courtesy of JLD Graphics, and brand new Engler Tool & Machine
injection to name a few.

The IMCA points schedule begins on January 1st, and ends on September 25th. All races scheduled during the points season will be points races, including co-sanctioned races with PASS, but not including the Blue Collar Classics at Port Royal on April 22nd and October 7th, and three races on MASS’ schedule on October 14th (Grandview), October 26th (Georgetown) and November 4th (Bridgeport).

“For those year end races, we are planning something big for the final three shows that will make it appealing for teams to come out and race. Grandview, Georgetown and Bridgeport have graciously included us in their season finale races that are prestigious and popular to the fans, so we want to make sure that we represent ourselves well while showing our appreciation to the promoters who welcomed us aboard this season,” MASS General Manager Jeff Geiges stated.

Finally, at the end of the meeting, Geiges revealed that Engler Tool & Machine came on board as the series title sponsor. “We a very proud and excited to announce this, and we want to thank and welcome Engler to the MASS family,” Geiges said.

Engler Tool & Machine is supplying a brand new injection to raffled off, which is valued roughly at $3800 and six $100 certificates, which will be handed out on three of the scheduled sponsored Engler Tool & Machine race nights.

Other contingency sponsors who have joined the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series in 2017 are DMI,
Mach 1 Chassis, JLD Graphics, Thayer Performance Engines and Parts, Bitner Automotive, Bruce’s Auto Body, Todd’s Performance, Geiswite Creations, ERK Steering, Competition Suspension Inc., Kelly Racing Fuels and Tanner Brothers Dairy Farm and Store.

“I have been racing with the 305 Sprint Cars ever since they started back in 2010, and I have to say, the amount of time and effort that MASS is putting into making this series work, and everything that they are giving back to the drivers makes racing exciting again,” Stefanie Palmai Carberry stated post meeting. “This fresh new start is just what we needed, and I can only hope that in return, new teams will start coming to race with us, and hopefully, we can get back to the high car counts that we had a few years ago”.

Bryant Davis (WoS photo)

Twenty-nine year old Bryant Davis is eagerly awaiting the start of the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series race season with high hopes and ambitions in making this year his most successful yet.

“My plans are to race as much as possible with MASS - ultimately the full schedule - just as long as everything goes well,” Davis stated at the 2017 PPB Motorsports Racecar & Trade show this past weekend. “We’ve had a history of engine failure issues, so as long as that holds up, we should be able to hang in there until the end.”

The Norwood, PA resident, who pilots the Bruce’s Auto Body #15B, plans on starting this season off at the season opener at Bridgeport Speedway on April 30th. MASS has a total of twenty races on its newly released schedule, which contains events at tracks such as Bridgeport Speedway, Grandview Speedway, Big Diamond Speedway, Delaware’s Georgetown Speedway, and a few co-sanctions events with the PA Sprint Series at historic tracks like Williams Grove, Susquehanna and Port Royal.

Davis, who started racing at the young age of nine years old in quarter midgets with Delaware’s Blackbird Quarter Midget Race Club, moved up to 270 Micro Sprints at fourteen years old and then 600 Micros at sixteen years old, where he raced at Airport Speedway and Bridgeport Speedway.

“In 2014, we began to notice how fast the Racesaver 305 division began to grow in this area, and we talked to a few of our friends who had already made the move up into the full-sized Sprints, and we found that there really was no difference in cost compared to the 600’s. The cost of tires and the amount of fuel that was used was the only added expense, so we decided to sell all of our Micro stuff, and we purchased a 305, and we began racing with the Tri-State Racesaver Series”.

“I am really excited for the inaugural season with the new Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series,” Davis said. “This is going to be a good change, a change for the better. This division has such a diverse group of drivers and the competition is no joke. There is a large group of experienced drivers who have raced anything from Micro Sprints, Modifieds, to 360 and 410 Sprint Cars. We all respect each other on and off the track, and I’m just glad that the Racesaver 305 division will be able to continue to thrive under this new management in this region”.

Bryant and his father, Bruce Davis, who will be coming on board to sponsor the hard charger for each feature event this season under the Bruce’s Auto Body banner, field there orange #15B with a two man crew consisting of themselves. Bruce’s Auto Body will give $25 cash each week to the driver who is awarded hard charger of the night.

Sponsors who Bryant would like to recognize are Precision Dent Works (Aston, PA), Custom Auto World (Prospect Park, PA) and Bruce’s Auto Body (Sharon Hill, PA).

“I’ve learned a lot over the past few years, and I’m hoping the knowledge that I’ve acquired will get us that first feature win!” Bryant concludes. “We’ve been getting closer to our goal, after winning a few heat races and earning a couple top fives, so if all goes well, I think we will visit victory lane in 2017”.
