BUSTI, N.Y. — Several special things are happening at Stateline Speedway tonight during Fan Appreciation Night, sponsored by Maplevale Farms and the Morgan family.

The first will be the unveiling of the rebuilt No. 27L 1972 Dodge Charger driven by Sammy LaMancuso. LaMancuso will be on hand prior to the races for a meet-and-greet along with a reproduced program from 1972 featuring LaMancuso, who will also take to the speedway for some hot laps in his newly rebuilt machine.

The second special will be the Super Challenger Special which was rained out on July 24. There have been 106 different drivers compete in the popular four cylinder front wheel drive class which is currently led by Jimmy Diabo. He has five feature wins and has a 225 point advantage over Paul Nelson II.

The third special is the price at the gate. Jenifer and Fritz Seamens, owners of the speedway, have reduced the price for general admission to $5 and pit admission to $8. One dollar of the admission price will be donated to the Chautauqua Community Foundation in behalf of the Stateline Speedway Legacy Fund. This fund will help pay for a film entitled "Stateline Speedway: The First Ten Years" — which is being prepared by Greg Peterson, Randy Sweeny and Randy Anderson.
