BETHEL, NY – Excitement for the Alliance Shippers’ LegendStock 2015 at Bethel Motor Speedway has been mounting over the past several weeks, and the speedway office announced this week that registration is officially open for the prestigious event. The race is scheduled for Saturday, August 1 (rain date Sunday, August 2), and will be preceded by a practice day on July 31.
This year’s event will mark the eighth anniversary of the race, which consistently draws in some of the top talent from across the country to the quarter-mile asphalt oval in White Lake, New York. It will once again be an INEX Legends Asphalt Nationals qualifier, as well as a championship race for the Bandoleros.
Alliance Shippers has joined forces with Bethel Motor Speedway once again to support the event, which pays a total purse of $3,000 to the Legends, with $1,500 going to the winner. The event has become known for the unique guitar trophies that are awarded to each Legends division winner (Pro, Masters, Young Lions, and Semi Pro), as well as to the overall Bandolero race winner.
Qualifying for the 50-lap Legends event consists of both European-style qualifying and heat races, with B, C, and D-mains as needed based on car count. Bandolero qualifying for their 20-lap event will consist of heat races. All drivers will be required to use 93 octane fuel purchased from the 17B QuickStop (Citgo) station located on 17B in White Lake.
Drivers are encouraged to register in advance to take advantage of the early registration discount. Legends drivers registered before July 29th will receive a discounted entry fee of $70; registration is $85 on or after July 29th. Bandolero driver entry for the LegendStock event is free.
Practice on Friday, July 31st will run from 2 pm until 8 pm (gates open at 12 noon), and is $40 per car. Pit entry for crew members is $10 for the practice day. Cars on hand for the July 31st practice will be able to have their cars inspected for the race.
