Tush said, “There are great prizes and a fun atmosphere unique to each race.  All of this was created by the Greg and Carolyn Stiart in honor of their daughter Mackenzie.  Joining this circuit was one of the first things I wanted to start when I returned to coach at Rushville.  I hope people come and support all of us this season and get in shape in the process.”
