SODUS, NY – Mike Emhof Motorsports, Inc. (MEM), a sprint car parts distributor and racing promotions company, has added to its holdings with the acquisition of the RACESAVER® CRSA Sprint Car Series. The purchase brings the number of series operated by MEM to three. The Patriot Sprint Tour (PST) & CNYMS Mini Sprint Series have been under ownership of MEM for several years.
During the offseason months, Mike Emhof and Mike VanDusen, owner of the CRSA series for the past five years, worked closely to finalize the details of the acquisition with a number of common goals to protect the integrity and future of the series. From race dates, to racing operations, competitors and fans can expect to see business as usual, with the exception of CRSA adopting the IMCA sanction.
“I’m glad that the series is going to continue under the same RACESAVER® format,” said VanDusen.
VanDusen’s comment reflects the premise of the series to offer stable and enforceable rules, consistent rules application, and fair purse distribution.
“Mike and his wife Debbie have done a fantastic job operating the CRSA series over the past five years and we share the goal of providing an affordable platform in a racing series that maintains a level playing field,” commented Mike Emhof.
VanDusen will remain involved with the series in a technical supporting role at the track and as a consultant during the 2016 season.
Along with the acquisition announcement, MEM announced that Greg Hixson will be the Director of Race Operations for the RACESAVER® CRSA Sprints. Hixson has worked under the MEM umbrella in roles with the CNYMS Mini Sprints, then with PST. Hixson has also been the race director at Black Rock Speedway and Canandaigua Motorsports Park.
“Greg has worked with me many, many years and is well respected within the racing community. He’ll have the full support of the MEM organization behind him with the RACESAVER® CRSA Sprints,” expressed Emhof.
A RACESAVER® CRSA Sprints 2016 schedule will be forthcoming in the next few weeks.

ROCHESTER, NY, (March 12 2015)- After a number of months working with the new management team at the Rolling Wheels Raceway Park, Rich Vleck and Mike Emhof have elected not to proceed forward with the speedway, effective immediately.
Vleck and Emhof were announced as part of RWR back in November 2014 as Media Director and Director of Racing Operations, respectively. Before that time, the pair had also assisted with planning for the Elbridge, NY facility.
“This was not an easy decision and one that took a lot of thought,” said Vleck. “This was an intriguing opportunity that I took very seriously and wanted nothing but the best for the fans, the teams and for Rolling Wheels, but ultimately this was the decision we had to make at this time.”
Both will continue with their lead positions with the Patriot Sprint Tour, with 26 touring dates across New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Ontario in 2015. Vleck will also continue to operate Hot Wings Media, producing dirt racing for television while Emhof will continue to sell sprint car chassis and parts through the Mike Emhof Motorsports brand.
Mike Emhof Motorsports will be at the National Parts Peddler show Fri-Sun Nov. 21-23 with a full line card display of products and available sales quotes, orders, & consultation.
