CORNWALL, ONT – The Empire Super Sprints are in town this coming Sunday at Cornwall Motor Speedway along with a regular night for the Modifieds, Sportsman and Mini-Stock. Propane Levac will proudly present this great evening of racing.
The Empire Super Sprints are always spectacular around the quarter mile track as we will see 11-second laps from several of the top names in the 360 Sprint Car division. The current ESS championship is really close as Jason Barney enters the initial Canadian trip with a 4-point lead over Chuck Hebing. There is a lot on the line this weekend for all drivers participating, the Canadian championship starts off on Friday night at Autodrome Granby, followed by Drummond and then Cornwall on Sunday along with the Quebec championship in which should attract a few extra teams to follow the 3-race weekend schedule.

All time ESS Feature winner with 74, Steve Poirier will lead a good mix of drivers from the Quebec area that will include Jordan Poirier who won last Sunday in the Lightning Sprints, Alex Vigneault, Dale Gosselin and rookie Bryan Cloutier.
