Can-Am Challenge Next For ESS Squads
SYRACUSE, N.Y. – After a very successful opening event at Can-Am Motorsports Park in New York, the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints now move to the inaugural Can-Am Challenge at Autodrome Granby.
The fast half-mile has been a mainstay on the ESS tour since 1994, but the Can-Am Challenge will see many top drivers from five states and two Canadian provinces invade Granby looking to claim the top prize of $5,000.
All the top teams from ESS will be on hand in what they will call their home turf looking for the pot of gold that will be offered in Saturday’s finale. The two-day event will begin Friday with twin 15-lap features guaranteeing no worse than the 10th place starting position all leading up to the big 30-lap event the next night.
Local favorite and three-time ESS champion Steve Poirier will be one of the drivers to beat this weekend at Granby. The Quebec native is a two-time winner of the famed Canadian Sprint Car Nationals and is looking to bring the Can-Am Challenge trophy home.
Defending ESS champ Chuck Hebing is a two-time winner at Granby and will have a say in Poirier’s quest to keep the money in Quebec.
The list of teams high atop the points that are looking to be on hand include are Shawn Donath, 2009 Quebec Nationals champion Justin Barger, Alain Bergeron, 2010 Quebec Nationals champ Lance Yonge, Jeff Cook, Matt Tanner, Patrick Vigneault, Michael Parent, Cory Sparks and Paul Kinney.
