The Richest One-Day Show Gets Even Richer!
$40,000-to-win Cleveland Brothers CAT Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup XVII
Sarver, PA (July 2, 2008) The taillights of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series haulers are barely over the horizon, and already the headlights of the Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series haulers are coming into sight! Yes, in just two short weeks, the “Greatest Show on Dirt” will roll into the legendary Don Martin’s Lernerville Speedway for the 17th running of the event that was created to honor and remember the man who put Western PA dirt track racing on the map. The Silver Cup continues to be the richest single-day purse on the Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws schedule and this year the pot is even fuller! To honor the 40th Anniversary of the Lernerville Speedway, this year’s Cleveland Brothers CAT Don Martin Memorial Silver Cup XVII is paying $40,000-to-win! The $40,000 question is; can anybody beat Donny Schatz? He has won the Silver Cup each of the past two years on his way to back-to-back World of Outlaws Championships. And after a slow start to the 2008 season, Schatz is back atop the Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws points standings after a torrid month of June in which he won six A-Main feature events including the three most recent races at Dodge City Raceway Park, River Cities Speedway and Cedar Lake Speedway. He has nine Outlaw wins on the season and the “Month of Money” hasn’t even started yet! The hot streak has Schatz just a shade under 100 points ahead of second place Jason Meyers. Meyers, as you may remember, won the first Advance Auto Parts World of Outlaws race at Lernerville Speedway in May at the First Commonwealth Bank Clash.
