By Dave Medler

FULTON, NY- This Saturday, May 27 the Empire Super Sprints 40th Anniversary season comes to the Fulton Speedway joining a five-star racing program on the ‘Highbanks’ as part of Memorial Day weekend.

While we are enjoying the sport we all love, let us remember first all the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms that we all enjoy.

The methanol breathing, clay slinging, winged warriors, Empire Super Sprints, annually bring the best 360 Sprint Car drivers in the Northeast United States, plus Ontario, and Quebec Canada.

In 2022 Paulie Colagiovanni, Davie Franek won main events on Memorial Day Weekend and ESS Speedweek. Larry Wight defended home track turf taking the popular win on Labor Day Weekend.
