FULTON, NY – Major marketing partner Sunoco Fulton Ethanol Facility and Ehrlich Pest Control will be the presenting sponsors this Saturday, July 29 for a night of fast, family, affordable dirt track racing at the Fulton Speedway plus a yellow-out.
Help us make the Saturday night racing program a Yellow-Out by wearing yellow for Rhabdomyosarcoma Month. Rhabdomyosarcoma is a fast-growing soft tissue cancer. There will also be an auction, door prizes and other activities during the night. All money donated will go directly to Golisano Children’s Hospital in Syracuse, NY to help their fight with childhood cancer.
Rachael Moyer who is the fiancé of Fulton Speedway Late Model racer Chris Fleming and one of our 50/50 girls has this cause very near and dear to her heart. To read her story go to www.fultonspeedway.com and in the news section look for the story with the Golisano Children’s Hospital logo.
After being popular with the fans and racers in 2016, the roofs will once again come off for the highly competitive Billy Whittaker Cars & Trux Late Models. Being run only once a season it’s anyone’s guess who will be sitting in victory lane at the end of 20 laps as taking the roofs off totally changes how the car races.
Also putting on side-by-side racing excitement will be the grandstand shaking, 800 horsepower Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modifieds, SUNY Canton Sportsman, E&V Energy Novice Sportsman, JB Logging & Firewood 4-Cylinders plus the Firehouse Subs Mod Lites.
Adult grandstand admission is $12 with everyone 18 years old and younger FREE. Pit is $27 participant, $30 non-participant. Grandstands open at 5:00 with racing at 7:00.
Starting this Saturday, thanks to Textron Off Road, who is the primary sponsor on Jason Occhino’s Late Model and Max McLaughlin’s Modified, there will be weekly pit tours.
After hot laps at 6:30 a trolley will pick up fans and give them a tour of the pit area each week. The trolley will leave from the Candyland trailer in the midway behind the grandstands in turn four. There will be several trips into the pits to let fans see the cars and drivers up close until just before the start of the night’s racing.

The Fulton Speedway would like to welcome back the Sunoco Fulton Ethanol Facility and their employees.
For the seventh straight season the Volney based plant will provide major sponsorship of the 32nd annual Outlaw 200 Weekend to be held September 29 and 30.
Located just a mile up Route 57 from the Speedway, Sunoco Fulton Ethanol Facility provides 75 full-time local jobs with its 24/7/365 operation. At full production, this advanced production facility is able to produce in excess of 85 million gallons of fuel-grade ethanol per year, along with millions of pounds of dried distiller’s grains and carbon dioxide, not to mention nearly two million gallons of corn oil.
The ethanol produced by the Sunoco Fulton Ethanol plant is the Official Fuel of NASCAR.
Sunoco Ethanol can always be counted on to deliver maximum performance – it’s why the best drivers in the world choose Sunoco. Sunoco is the exclusive provider of racing fuel for NASCAR’s three national series: The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
The Sunoco Ethanol plant spans more than 90 acres and boasts one of the largest privately-owned rail yards in the Northeast with more than six miles of track.
The plant is strategically located in close proximity to the Albany market. This limits the plant and its supplier dependency on rail which has incurred massive delays due to weather, track and equipment repair.
The plant brings in corn by rail from as far away as Columbus, Ohio. But the goal is to maximize local and regional truck corn.
While New York State is not a major corn producer, it still produces nearly 100 million bushels per year. The Sunoco Ethanol plant processes nearly 22 million bushels per year or 20% of the total New York State crop.
Look for the familiar Sunoco diamond visible at Fulton Speedway throughout the 2017 season.
