Super Sprints Going Double-File In ’11

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The Lucas Oil Empire Super Series will add its name to a growing list of touring sprint-car divisions that will utilize double-file restarts next year.

Used successfully in 2010 by the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series, teams in the Northeastern-based Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints voted almost unanimously to use double-file restarts next year.

“I am real happy that the teams wanted to do the double-file restarts and they voted it in almost unanimously,” said ESS President Chuck Miller. “We always remember that ESS is a form of entertainment and we want the fans to enjoy every ESS event that we have. Double-file restarts will add to that excitement, there’s nothing better than a pack of high horse powered winged sprint cars coming down for a start.”

The system used by the World of Outlaws will also be followed. If there is a caution flag before a lap could be completed after a double-file restart the traditional single-file restart will then be used in effort to keep the show moving along.

“I think it will be real exciting for the fans and the racers. You’re definitely going to see more passing,” said three-time defending series champion Steve Poirier. “If you have a real bad draw having a double-file restart gives you a better chance to get to the front.”
