ESS Sets 29-Race Schedule
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — As the calendar just changed seasons to spring, some of the very best sprint car drivers are ready for the 2011, 28th anniversary Tour for the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints.
Twenty-nine dates at 18 different tracks in New York, Pennsylvania, Ontario and Quebec will host events for the series led by defending series champion Steve Poirier.
“We are very excited to have such a full schedule and as always with ESS our full point shows anchor the schedule,” noted ESS President Chuck Miller. “With the exception of Edelweiss which unfortunately closed, we have all the tracks back from last year that ran full point ESS events and we are very happy to bring back Canandaigua, Black Rock and Lebanon Valley. It’s looking to be a fun year.”
Leading the schedule with four dates this year is Gene Cole’s Utica-Rome Speedway.
Holding a pair of ESS full point events once again will be Can-Am Motorsports Park, which kicks off the season on April 30, the Fonda Speedway where the tour champion will be crowned on Sept. 24 and the Friday night home in Quebec, Autodrome Granby.
Returning holding single events will be the Brewerton Speedway, Glen Ridge Motorsports Park, Autodrome Drummond, Fulton Speedway, the New Cayuga County Speedway, Mohawk Int’l Raceway and Le RPM Speedway.
