SYRACUSE, NY – The 2017 and 35th season for the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) started last weekend with the opening show at the Outlaw Speedway. Seven days later the tour now visits the track where it all started in 1983, the Fulton Speedway.
Last year the Lucas Oil Tour kicked off the exciting High Bank Holdup Weekend and with the success, the event is now becoming an annual affair. The A-Main winner will take home $2,000 and also earn points for the NAPA Auto Parts US Tour and marks the first event for the SUNY Canton Series.
Jared Zimbardi won the opening event at Outlaw, but due to not being an ESS member the point standings coming into Fulton sees young Jordan Thomas atop the points followed by Coleman Gulick, Jason Barney, Dylan Westbrook and Mark Smith. The top four in points are expected to be in the field along with Brandon Kidd, Matt Billings, Billy VanInwegen and Alex Vigneault who are in the top ten in the standings.
Fans can also expect to see seven-time ESS Champ Steve Poirier, Paul Kinney, Paulie Colagiovanni, Jonathan Preston, Brett Wright, Chad Miller, Parker Evans, Ethan Preston, Steve Collins and Pete Richardson. Making their point debuts will be Chuck and Kelly Hebing, Jeff Cook, Matt Tanner, Shawn Donath, Bryan Howland, Sammy Reakes IV, Yan Bilodeau, Dave Axton, Robbie Shuttleworth, Erik Karlsen and more.
The night kicks off with the E&V Energy timed hot laps, followed by the Car Mate Trailers heat events with the Shuttleworth Epoxy Floors/Cobra Coaches Dash and the Lacaillade Masonry B-Main all leading up to the 25 lap A-Main. The entire night is being sponsored by ESS tour contributor Scorpion Security Products.
Tires, Fuel and Parts will be on hand from Donath MotorWorx.
