MODIFIED FEATURE AT 22ND ANNUAL FRED DILLOW MEMORIAL RACE TO HONOR LATE MODIFIED DRIVER, DALE "BUDDHA" LYONS
West Portsmouth, Ohio (April 25, 2016) This year's modified feature at the Fred Dillow Memorial Race will be named in honor of the late Dale "Buddha" Lyons. Buddha drove the number 80L modified at local dirt tracks throughout the tri-state area. He was a friend to many and was known for his generous heart and for always having a big smile on his face. When he was at the race track he was "happy, happy, happy".
The Dale "Buddha" Lyons 20 lap Modified Feature will pay $1,300 to win (if over 30 modifieds) or $1,100 to win (if under 30 modifieds), based on Portsmouth Raceway Park's regular weekly payout and additional sponsor money that was given to honor the memory of Dale "Buddha" Lyons. Last year there were 54 modifieds on hand for the Fred Dillow Memorial Race. As always, bonus money will also randomly be added throughout the field on top of PRP's regular purse.
Be sure to mark your calendar to attend the 22nd Annual Fred Dillow Memorial Race, Saturday, August 20th, at Portsmouth Raceway Park! For more information go to www.freddillowmemorial.com
HILLBILLY 100 PROVISIONAL TO GO TO WINNER OF 22ND ANNUAL FRED DILLOW MEMORIAL AUGUST 20TH AT PORTSMOUTH RACEWAY PARK
West Portsmouth, Ohio (March 12, 2016) The 22nd Annual Fred Dillow Memorial, which is held at Portsmouth Raceway Park in West Portsmouth, Ohio, will have an added bonus to the super late model winner this year. Not only will the feature winner of this popular event take home $5,000 on August 20th, but for the first time in the history of the Fred Dillow Memorial, the winner will receive a provisional starting spot in the 48th Annual Hillbilly 100. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series sanctioned crown jewel event will be held at I-77 Speedway Park in Ripley, WV, on September 4th, paying $25,000 to win and $1,000 to start.
"We are very honored and excited to have the Hillbilly 100 provisional as a part of the Fred Dillow Memorial this year. The Hillbilly 100 is the oldest running super late model event and is full of history and tradition and to have it associated with Dad's race is very special to us. We would like to thank DTWC and Hillbilly 100 promoter, Carl Short, for making this possible, as well as the Coleman family and Donna Rayburn from Portsmouth Raceway Park. There are no better or classier people to work with in racing than that group of individuals, in my opinion," said Susan Dillow, speaking on behalf of the Dillow family.
Several bonuses will also be up for grabs the night of the Dillow Memorial. Just to name a few of the bonuses for super late models, Bozo's Just Give Me One Lap will pay $1,077 for super late model fast time; the Sgt. Tim Moore Super Late Model Dash will pay $233 to win; and the Shain Graphics & Decals Super Late Model Hard Charger Award will pay $250. There are also hard charger and cash bonuses in each support class as well. Detailed bonuses in each division will be announced at a later date.
