Conneaut, OH (July 11, 2017): The Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series will make its 2017 visit to Raceway 7 this Friday for $1000 to win, the biggest pot of loot for the Campbellâ€™s Mini Storage Street Stocks this season at the northeast Ohio speedplant! The Plymouth Methodist Church will be at the main ticket area to collect canned goods to benefit their Food Pantry. All fans are urged, if the can, to contribute a canned item to help the areaâ€™s needy. PLUS! There will be a huge display of Fireworks by Gibson of Titusville to complete the evening.
Rusty Martz currently heads up the Penn Ohio Pro Stock Championship Series points over Rusty Moore and Randy Wyant. 27 cars signed into the pits last summer for this event, the highest Street Stock count of the season with Chris Schneider taking the win over the local contingent. Raceway 7â€™s talented class of drivers including defending champion Shaun Fawcett, Anthony Marotto, Jamie Duncan, Jimmy Kennerknecht, and Garrett Calvert, the top five in points at this time, will be working extra hard to see that the extra cash stays local!
