Triple Crown Returns to Delaware Speedway This Friday Night!

May 26, 2010 (London, Ontario) Delaware Speedway is bringing back the popular Triple Crown racing series with the first event of 2010 part of a great night of racing on Friday May 28th.  The Triple Crown gives racers another opportunity to earn NASCAR points (if they are NASCAR members) and to accumulate Delaware Speedway points.  For the fans, it's yet another exciting Late Model series.  The second Triple Crown race goes July 23rd and the third, August 20th. Complete rules and format are available at www.delawarespeedway.com

May 28th's events at Delaware are sponsored by O'Tools Rent or Buy. O'Tools has been a proud supporter of Delaware Speedway for the past several years and is the Official Supplier of the golf carts used throughout the facility by event staff and race officials.




In the NASCAR Late Model Series, Mark Watson and Ron Sheridan will both be looking to repeat their wins this season.  Watson, a former champion in the PowerAde Open Wheel Late Model Division, is coming off of a win in the second race of the season. That followed a strong showing during the season opener in which he led the majority of the race before his night came to an abrupt end in lap 25.  Sheridan will use this week's race, along with the June 4th event, to not only help erase the five point deficit between him and points leader Jesse Kennedy, but  also as a tune up in preparation for his first appearance in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series, during the Delaware 200 on June 5th.

Steve Smith hopes to continue his run toward his goal of a 2010 Super Stock Championship.  Smith's decisive win in the season opener has given him a strong start. 2009 division champion Jason Lidster currently sits fourth in the standings, tied with 2009 championship runner-up Darrell Lake, and trails Smith by only 12 points. Stephen Richmond, who recently won the 2010 Alan Kulwicki Memorial Scholarship for the Lee College of Engineering at the University of North Carolina – Charlotte, finds himself in second place, just five points back. 

Paul Fothergill is the defending champ in Demar Aggregate Trucks and last week's winner.  Fothergill finds himself sitting 18th in the 2010 points standings after two events this season.  Michelle Korcina of Ailsa Craig, a rookie competitor in 2009, leads the truck division by seven points over Gary Adriaennsen who won this season's opening race.

The main gate opens at 6 pm Friday night and racing starts at 8!

Tickets have been going fast for Delaware's Summer Showdown presented by Auto Parts Centres, July 7th, featuring NASCAR Sprint Cup racers Kyle Busch, David Reutimann and Regan Smith.   Don't miss this opportunity to see the "big boys" get shown how it's done by Delaware Speedway's NASCAR Whelen All-American Series favourites.
