(Woodhull, NY) Third year Woodhull Raceway owners, Terry and Niki Brewer will open the month of July in a big way as the NAPA sponsored 602 Crate Sportsman will run their traditional King of the Ring Event.

“When we purchased the track from previous owners, Ted and Brandi White we inherited the popular King of the Ring Events that they began several seasons ago. It began with the Modifieds and then several other classes were added over time. It has been a tremendous success for fans and competitors as it provides great one-on one action, and it also puts some extra cash into the overall winner’s pocket.” That according to Nikki Brewer.

Joining NAPA as nightly marketing partners for the July 2, 2022 event will be Hatfield Real Estate of Elmira along with S and D Pool Specialists in Avoca, NY.

Addison Auto Parts Store owner, Vera Eaker will again join forces with Nate Dunning who is the proprietor of the Corning, Hornell and Wellsville NAPA locations along with Doug and Kim Warner of the Bath NAPA and Geoff Rakoski owner of the Lawrenceville, Pa location to provide the NAPA Crate Sportsman King of the Ring where the winner will receive a beautiful trophy along with a handsome check in the amount of $300.

Eaker, Dunning, the Warners and Rakoski all know full well the support that the race community gives their respective businesses and as part of their aggressive 2022 marketing program they are again extremely pleased to have the NAPA name attached to the Crate Sportsman King of the Ring.
