Toledo, Ohio-January 25, 2016: The newly-created 3-race “Silver Cup” Series for ARCA’s Aramark Late Model Sportsman division has a sponsor. Local businessman Mike Rogers has pledged his support of the trio of events for the class in 2016, with 2 events at Toledo Speedway and a single event at Flat Rock Speedway.
The R & M Recycling Silver Cup races will each be 50 laps. The dates are Sunday afternoon, May 15 at Toledo, Saturday, July 2 at Flat Rock and Friday, July 29 back at Toledo.
A separate point system will be kept for the 3 races, and a bonus point fund has been established, with the Series champion to collect $500. Second place will get $300, $200 will go to the third place finisher, $150 to fourth and $100 to the fifth place driver. Points for these 3 events will also be earned for the 2016 over-all ARCA Aramark Late Model Sportsman championship chase.
The R & M Recycling Silver Cup Series contests will also feature a bonus purse structure, lap money at $5 per lap and contingency awards from Bazell Race Fuels/Sunoco Race Fuels (Toledo races) for each of the 50 lap feature events. Several other awards are being sought and will be announced when details have been finalized.
“We are very grateful to Mike Rogers and the folks at R & M Recycling for helping us kick start the new Silver Cup Series for this division,” said Ron Drager, Owner and Promoter of both Toledo and Flat Rock.
R & M will continue its sponsorship of School Buses for both “Night of Destruction” events at Toledo in 2016, as well as their association with the Glass City 200 Late Model invitational.
R & M Recycling has locations in Toledo, OH, Adrian, MI and Monroe, MI.
