SUNY Canton Series Takes Center Focus this Weekend for Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints

By Dean Reynolds

SYRACUSE, NY – As the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) gets ready to visit Can-Am Motorsports Park and Utica-Rome Speedway on this Labor Day Weekend 2010, the SUNY Canton Series also kicks into full gear for two of the final three events.

The picturesque campus in Upstate NY is once again providing some adding funding to the season ending awards banquet with these two nights of racing proving vital to the points title.

Steve Poirier has already clinched the Northwood 2 Construction/LaSalle Motorsports Canadian Sprint Series and also the Fondations 4 Saisons Quebec Five Star Series over the weekend. He is also atop the SUNY Canton points coming into this weekend.

Justin Barger and last years SUNY Canton champ Lance Yonge still have a shot at knocking off the Quebec star from the points lead. Dan Kaszubinski, Chuck Hebing, Tommy Wickham, Mike Stelter and Kevin Ward Jr. are in the top 10 in Canton points and will be on hand for both events looking to get their money paying positions.

Both Can-Am and Utica-Rome will be holding their third Lucas Oil ESS event of 2010 and a new tradition of running on the summer’s final holiday weekend is being started.
