Former Rookie of the Year, Paulie Colagiovanni, the last driver to win an ESS event, Coleman Gulick, making his return to the ESS wars in Vinny Vitale and 2017 first year runner Josh Flint. Also of note, ESS competitor Kelly Hebing will have her car in the Weedsport Speedway booth promoting the Ultimate Wingless Showdown at Weedsport.

All five teams will be ready to tackle most if not all the 2017 Lucas Oil Tour that starts in April and carries through to the end of October. Also, all drivers and many more ESS stars will be on hand all weekend to meet and greet every fan that stops by.

The 2017 line of merchandise from ASI Racewear is some of the sharpest designs ever produced.
