Its Race Night Tonight: Opening Night at WCIS

Its race night tonight in Perry,NY as the Wyoming County International Speedway opens its doors for the 2010 racing season. Last week was suppost to be the lid-lifter but Mother Nature had other ideas. But tonight, great racing will be had as the mighty SST Modifieds, SST Super Stocks, 4 cylinders and the Mini Cups all attempt to win the first race of the 2010 campaign at the historic 1/3rd mile Bullring.

Defending track champions John Barber (SST Modified), Brian Johnson (4 cylinders) and Michelle Becker (Mini Cups) are back in their title defenses. Bobby Lippa Jr. (SST Super Stocks) will be moving up this season to a SST Modified but he will also be running the Super for a limited schedule this season.

The champs will all have some top notch competition this season. The 4 cylinders always have a tough field and a name that isn’t new to the racing world is however new to the speedway is Tommy Catalano. Tommy is the oldest son of Amy and Dave Catalano and Tommy will be campaigning in the 4 cylinder division weekly. Amy will also be competing at the Bullring on a regular basis in the SST Modifieds. Amy is the defending SST Modified Tour Champion. There are new faces and old faces but in new places this season as Austyn Fugle has moved up into the Superstocks.

Opening night is also Meet the Drivers Night as fans are welcomed to come onto the speedway and get up close and personal with the cars and the stars that make the Bullring their Friday Night home. Also, the SST Angels will be on hand to get photos taken with the fans as well.

Race time is set for 7:30pm with the pit gates opening at 3:00 and the grandstands will open at 5:00 pm. For more information, you can log on to or you can call either the speedway office at 585-237-2580 or the race day line at 585-237-2510.
