OSWEGO, NY (July 25, 2019) - Shalersville, Ohio’s Trent Stephens already has one Sandusky Speedway victory under his belt this month, and will be making the trip from his new home in Kannapolis, North Carolina for a shot at two more checkered flags this weekend.
Stephens, who is again driving for Stout Racing, moved to North Carolina in June to begin his new position as an engineer with the Doosan Portable Power Company in Statesville.
Despite the move, Stephens will still be racing as much as he can, and was already victorious in the Midwest Super Series event held at Sandusky on July 6. The Supermodified veteran drove to a commanding win in that show over Mike McVetta and brother Talon.
A three-time ISMA winner and former ‘King of Wings,’ Stephens is not a stranger to success at Sandusky. He has one ‘Fast Forty’ triumph to his credit, which came in 2015, and also finished fifth in the 100-lap Hy-Miler a year ago.
Worth noting, is that Stephens will have a new teammate for the weekend in three-time Hy-Miler champion Dave Shullick Jr. Shullick is debuting a brand new car as No. 49, leaving no doubt the Stout Racing ‘two headed monster’ will be a team to watch.
Sandusky Speedway pit gates will open at 2pm for tomorrow’s Fast Forty, with grandstands and practice at 4pm and time trials at 6:30pm. Qualifying races will take the green flag at 7:30pm. Tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors, $8 for kids six to twelve, and children five and under are free.
For Saturday’s 100-lap Hy-Miler, pits will open at 11am, grandstands and practice at 1pm, time trials at 4pm, and racing at 7pm. Grandstand pricing will be $28 for adults, $26 for seniors, $8 for kids six to twelve, and children five and under will again be admitted without charge.
Fans planning to attend both days of the Hy-Miler will have the opportunity to purchase a two day pit pass through the Speedway for $75. Further information on Hy-Miler Weekend can be found at SanduskySpeedway.com.
