(WOODHULL,NY)- Griffith Energy and Two Rivers Timber joins Woodhull Raceway in remembering a Woodhull legend, with the 15th annual Lyle Sherwood Memorial. The event is held in memory of the driver of the famous No. 17, who tragically lost his life in 2005 while competing in Modified competition at the Steuben County third-mile.

The very first Sherwood Memorial was held later on in the very same season that Sherwood passed away, making 2019 the 15th annual event. Woodhull Raceway is also happy to announce that the two local businesses have come together to sweeten the pot at the end of the rainbow for the 2019 Lyle Sherwood Memorial. The race that was set to pay $1,717 to the winner, in memory of Sherwood’s famous No. 17, will now pay a cool $2,017-to-win and will also pay $200 just to take the green flag in the A-Main.

TRT and Griffith-Superior Plus have been longtime supporters of racing at Woodhull and will help memorialize one of Woodhull’s greats. Sherwood was a 2019 inductee into the Woodhull Raceway Hall of Fame, which concluded their inductions of the 2019 class.

The event format for all classes will be a draw, redraw for the top twelve qualifiers. Also on the racing card will be Crate Sportsman, Crate Late Models, Open Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, Front Wheel Drives and Woodhull Youth Warriors. T
