CORNWALL, ONT – Sprint Car fans will be pleased as the Empire Super Sprints are in town this coming Sunday evening for their annual trek at Cornwall Motor Speedway along with a complete race program in all other divisions as Green Tech John Deere will be the sponsor of the evening.
Celebrating their 35th anniversary in 2018, the Empire Super Sprints should have a solid group of 360 powered sprint cars to the speedway with a good mixture of American, Ontario and Quebec drivers that will form the field. Being in Canada for 3 consecutive nights will spark interest for travelling teams and more cars are expected. Jason Barney currently leads the way in the points over young gun Coleman Gulick and local runner Matt Billings. While the championship is mainly led by Americans, we will see the Poirier family led by Steve and Jordan, Patrick Vigneault, Yan Bilodeau, Guillaume Nedeirer and several others in the pits.
