By Doug Kennedy | September 24, 2015

(Pulaski, PA)... What do Ryan Montgomery, Nico Dabecco, Eric Wilson, and Michael Lake all have in common?  They were all past champions of the "Futures Cup" program with the Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC RUSH Dirt Late Model Series. 

 

Since winning the title, each of them has gone onto excel in the RUSH Late Model Series.  Montglast year’s Touring champion and the 2011 "Futures Cup" champ.  Lake is the youngest driver in Pennsylvania history to win a Late Model feature.  He accomplished that feat when he was 12 at Roaring Knob, and most recently just won his first career Super Late Model feature at Roaring Knob!  He was also the 2014 champ.  Wilson was the youngest driver at the age of 14 to win a feature at Sharon Speedway and captured the "Futures Cup" title in 2013, barely edging out Lake.  Dabecco took the championship in 2012 and went on to win several feature events. And now you can soon add 16-year-old Clinton Hersh to that list as well.
