(SODUS, NY) – The third leg of the Land of Legends “Triple Double” will race to completion this Saturday night. Paul Cole has hosted the Big Block Modified Super DIRTcar Series for double features, 360 Sprint Cars for double features and now the CRSA Sprints for double features coming up Saturday night.

The event will start with hot laps and heat races to qualify drivers for the Danny Willmes Memorial- the second feature scheduled for the 305 sprint contingent. Following the track’s brief intermission, the rained out June 19 feature will run with the lineup for that feature already set by qualifying from that night.

The feature from June 19 will follow the $750-to-win purse structure as follows:
1. $750
2. $400
3. $325
4. $300
5. $250
6. $225
7. $200
8. $190
9. $180
10. $175
11. $170
12. $165
13. $160
14. $155
15-24. $150

Friends of Danny Willmes have contributed a total of $1,250 that is being added to the purse for the nightcap event presented by Midstate Basement Authorities. The Danny Willmes Memorial is run in memory of a massive supporter of local sprint car racing. A racing enthusiast, Willmes prided himself on being just as big a silent supporter “behind the scenes” as he was being a sponsor on the side of his team cars. Willmes passed away in the Fall of 2019, just hours after his longtime friend and team driver Darryl Ruggles delivered the feature trophy that clinched them the track title that season.

The Danny Willmes Memorial will follow a special purse structure with $1,250 added courtesy of the “Friends of Danny Willmes”:
1. $1,000
2. $650
3. $400
4. $300
