By DAVE MEDLER

BALDWINSVILLE, NY – The Fulton Speedway would like to welcome Sam Reakes Snap-on Tools to the sponsorship family. Reakes Snap-on franchise will be the presenting sponsor on night one of the “Highbank Holdup” weekend on Friday April 28.

Doing battle on Friday night will be clay slinging, methanol breathing, winged warriors of the premier 360 Sprint car tour in the Northeast, the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints. The highly competitive and fan favorite DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series Central Region will add to high-speed excitement to kick off the 2017 season.

Along with being presenting sponsor, Reakes will be strapping into his own Town Mechanical, The Tub Surgeon, No. 17 as he will be looking to take home the A-Main victory.

Sam Reakes cut his teeth in racing on the “Highbanks” of the Fulton Speedway collecting 18 victories in the Sportsman division before moving into Sprint Cars.

Last season DIRTcar Sportsman Championship Series had 55 cars hit the speedway in an attempt to qualify for the 40 lap feature.
