From Dean Reynolds

SYRACUSE, NY – The high profile academic university known as SUNY Canton has been a big fixture with the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) for several seasons and in 2012 it will be no different. For the fourth consecutive season, the popular SUNY Canton Series is back and new for this year will be the SUNY Canton weekend.

The SUNY Canton Series is a separate point standings that involves the events held at Utica-Rome, Fonda, Can-Am and Mohawk International. These tracks are located within the area where most of SUNY Canton’s enrollment base is from and a great way to get information out about the ultra-modern campus.

What will be extra special for 2012 is the announcement of SUNY Canton Weekend which will be held on Friday and Saturday, July 6th & 7th. The winged warriors will invade Mohawk International on the 6th followed by its traditional 4th of July weekend stop at Can-Am Motorsports Park. Adding some spice to these events is that the winner of the 25 lap A-Mains will collect a cool $2,000.

The State University of New York at Canton is a public, coeducational, residential college located on a spacious campus along the banks of the Grasse River. There are miles of beautiful trails circling the campus, with wonderful scenic landscapes. Its northern location places SUNY Canton close to the Adirondack Mountains, the St. Lawrence River, and major cities including Ottawa and Montreal.

SUNY Canton is a vibrant community of people learning and growing together. The College has a continuing record of excellence in providing a career-driven educational experience.

The College has been a major sponsorship force in the local racing community and in return has had several students that enroll with racing backgrounds. It has been an unique program that continues to grow.

The 30th season for the Lucas Oil Tour is just a few months away. The 2012 schedule that already has 24 dates booked with several more still in the works will be released in a few short weeks. It promises to be another exciting year for winged sprint car fans in the northeast and Canada!
