SPORTSMAN 100 RENAMED IN HONOR OF GARY WOLFORD
By Brad Vores for Susquehanna Speedway

It's only fitting that the biggest race for the Super Sportsman division be run in memory of the all-time leading feature winner in the division.

Susquehanna Speedway officials have announced the annual Sportsman 100 will now be called the Credit Connection Auto Sales Gary Wolford Sportsman 100.

The big event will highlight the Saturday, September 10th racing program at the York Haven facility.

"Gary was one of the toughest racers there was in the Super Sportsman and to me, the toughest race to win is the Sportsman 100," said Susquehanna Speedway general manager Kolten Gouse. "It's only fitting that this race is in his honor. His records and win total speak for themselves at Silver Spring and Susquehanna Speedway and we are truly honored to represent him."

Wolford lost his long battle with cancer over the weekend. He is the all time leading Super Sportsman winner at Silver Spring Speedway with 86 feature wins. He also captured two track championships during this stellar racing career.

Joining the Super Sportsman on the September 10th program will be the Extreme Stocks, Road Warriors and EMMR.

General admission for this event will be $14 for Adults, $12 for Seniors (60 and over), $10 for Students (Ages 13-17) and 12 and under are Free.
