IT’S TIME FOR THE 33RD ANNUAL TRIBUTE TO TOMMY DRUAR AND TONY JANKOWIAK PRESENTED BY CROSBY STORES AND COCA-COLA AT HOLLAND INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

Race fans and competitors are looking forward to returning the “high-banks” of Holland (N.Y.) International Speedway for the second time this season in anticipation of what has become one of the biggest nights of racing along with one of the greatest traditions in Western New York, the running of the 33rd Annual Tribute to Tommy Druar and Tony Jankowiaki presented by Crosby Stores and Coca-Cola.

The Race of Champions Modified Series will compete for 110-laps.

“This is a night that the racing community always looks forward to and so does our family,” stated Mickey Druar, widow to Tommy Druar. “The people are incredible, it is a great night of racing and a wonderful celebration of Tommy and Tony’s lives. Our families are extremely thankful that this tradition has carried on for so long. We look forward to seeing everyone Saturday at Holland.”

Mike Leaty of Williamson, N.Y., has posted two victories this season, while Patrick Emerling of Orchard Park, N.Y., won the Series most recent race at Spencer Speedway. Leaty, currently holds the point lead and is looking for another strong run at Holland.

“It’s definitely a tire management run,” stated Leaty. “There are no tire changes, so it’s up to the driver to hang on and keep the car under them so you have something at the finish. It will be a challenge with a lot of good racecars in the field. We’ll be ready to go.”

The Race of Champions Street Stocks will run their final race of the season at Holland with a 37-lap feature for $500-to-win. Tim Welshan’s of South Wales, N.Y., scored the victory in the first race and holds the point lead for the three race Series. The FOAR Score Club of Western New York will be collecting and assembling the point fund for the division for the 2022 season. The champion will be honored at the season ending Championship Celebration for the Race of Champions and will receive all of the accolades for their efforts.
