Rock Camp Motocross and Holliday's Quik Stop To Sponsor The Late Model Feature At Dillow Memorial

IRONTON, OH (July 21, 2014) The Holliday family has been involved in dirt track racing for many years and they are very familiar with the annual Fred Dillow Memorial Race.

Shawn Holliday has won the Fred Dillow Memorial Race on two occasions, in two different divisions. In 1998 he won it in a late model and in 2000 he took the checkered in an open wheel modified. The Hollidays have also been longtime sponsors of the event.

For the 20th Annual FDM coming up at Portsmouth Raceway Park on August 16th,  Shawn and DeAnna Holliday have decided to step their sponsorship up a notch this year and become the headline sponsor of the late model feature with their two businesses Rock Camp Motocross located off County Road 6 in Kitts Hill, Ohio and Holliday's Quik Stop, located on State Route 243 just outside of Coal Grove.

Being that we are all from the Coal Grove area, we have known the Holliday family all of our lives. Having them as a part of Fred's race every year is very much appreciated, said Edna Dillow.  We have watched Shawn grow up and become a very competitive driver and successful businessman, she continued, and them sponsoring the late model feature this year means a lot to our family.

Ryan Pfunk Potter Halfway Leader Award and The Pfunk Posse.  In Memory of a Special Friend!

IRONTON, OH (July 6, 2014) There are people in this world who make a lasting impression. Whether you met Ryan Potter one time or many times, the impact was always the same. He was your friend for life. He was the textbook definition of friend, and then some.

Ryan was a spunky, fun loving, big hearted guy who loved his family, his friends and dirt track racing. He had a DJ business as a hobby and sponsored the $100 halfway leader award at the Fred Dillow Memorial Race. Tragically, Ryan passed away unexpectedly in July 2013.

After Ryan passed away, a group of his family and friends, known as The Pfunk Posse, wanted to continue the tradition of sponsoring the halfway leader award in his name because of his love for dirt late model racing, just like Ryan's brother, Brandon, continues the tradition of his DJ business. Last year, they came together and raised $625 to sponsor the Ryan Pfunk Potter Halfway Leader Award of the late model feature. This year, they have already raised $700 and it will more than likely increase by the night of the race.

The Pfunk Posse is taking it a step further this year, in honor of their friend and his love for dirt late model racing, they are adding an additional $1,000 to the purse for the Dillow Memorial. In turn, they will be watching the FDM from the turn 1 beach house and celebrating the life of Ryan Potter and the wonderful memories they shared with him.

Having Ryan as a part of the Dillow Memorial means more than I can even put into words. He was a dear friend and a part of my family. He was the type of guy who would do anything for you and I have great memories of him, said Susan Dillow, Fred's daughter.

RJ Conley took home the $625 Ryan Pfunk Potter Halfway Leader Award last year. Who will it be on August 16th? Find out at the 20th Annual Fred Dillow Memorial Race at Portsmouth Raceway Park!

Late Model Illustrated and AR Bodies to Sponsor 20th Annual Fred Dillow Memorial

Late Model Illustrated will be one of several sponsors of the Super Late Model main event, which pays $5,000-to-win. In addition, all drivers in all classes that compete in the 20th Annual Fred Dillow Memorial will receive a 4-month subscription to Late Model Illustrated.  

“Brian and Carolyn McCleod, Publishers of Late Model Illustrated, are a joy to work with and do an outstanding job with their magazine. The fact that they are giving each driver a 4-month subscription is very cool," says Brayden Dillow, grandson of the late Fred Dillow.

AR Bodies will sponsor a nose/combo kit to one lucky Super Late Model or Limited Late Model driver. That driver will be drawn at random during the night.    "This is a great product for any driver to receive and we are looking forward to giving it away the night of the race," said Fred's daughter, Sherri Dillow Willis.

The Dillow family would like to thank all of the wonderful sponsors of this prestigious event. Visit the Official Website of the Fred Dillow Memorial at www.FredDillowMemorial.com for additional purse and sponsor information.
