Event To Join Pro All Star Series $10,000 To Win 150-lap Race & PASS Modified Special
SEEKONK, Mass. — Seekonk Speedway confirmed today that the Nick’s Pit Stop Legends Cars will join the second annual Bay State Classic on Wednesday, July 27 for a non-points special event. The 35-lap Nick Lascuola Racing Bay State Classic will pay $2,000 to the winner, with a total purse of over $5,000 for a full field of 24 cars. This event is expected to draw the best of Seekonk’s Fast Friday Legends Cars division and a few invaders to chase the big prize.
The Legends Cars will help headline a full mid-week racing event at Seekonk, which includes the $10,000 to win, 150-lap Pro All Star Series race and a 50-lap special for the PASS Modifieds in their second visit to Seekonk Speedway.
“We’re really excited to have this race added to the schedule,” Nick Lascuola, owner of Nick Lascuola Racing, said. “We have to thank Helger’s South Coast Power Equipment, B&M Maintenance, J&E Welding and Keller Motorsports for also coming on board to help raise the biggest winning prize for a Legends Cars race in New England to date this season. Combining with the Pro All Star Series and PASS Modifieds for this special event is going to be something to watch. All of us at Nick Lascuola Racing are excited for the Nick Lascuola Racing Summer Shootout.”
The Fast Friday Legends Cars division has produced some of the most competitive racing in recent memory in 2022 — with names like Devin Deshaies, Brendon Hammann and Mason Tessier already visiting Victory Lane. All three of them should be listed as favorites for the 35-lap event, which will be the longest distance the division will run all season.
Even though others haven’t won, many of them have been competitive, inside the top-five often. Names like Reese Bogue, Brendan LaBelle, Josh parsons, Richie Helger Jr. and others will be part of this main event. Will former champion Luke Lebrun find a ride for this race? Will Seekonk Late Model standout Jacob “Rowdy” Burns make an appearance? What outsiders will join the show? Fans will have to attend the race to find out.
“We can’t thank Nick Lascuola and his team enough for making this such a big race,” Ed St. Germain, Director of Business Development at Seekonk Speedway, said. “Our Legends Cars division leads our Fast Friday program, showcasing some veterans and the youth rising stars of Seekonk Speedway. We’re excited to see them get together with PASS and the PASS Modifieds for a mid-week showdown.”
Tickets for the second annual Bay State Classic are available now at SeekonkSpeedway.com, where fans can also purchase tickets for all of Seekonk’s 2022 events. The PASS Modifieds and the $10,000 to win Pro All Star Series main event will join this show to make it a special night of mid-week action in Massachusetts.
