O’Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions add four inaugural dates to the 2010 Schedule

From Kelly Brown

Camargo, IL – The O’Reilly All Star Circuit of Champions has not visited the state of New
York in over ten years, but the fans of the 410 racing series will not be
waiting much longer as the series has inked a deal with Chapman’s Can Am
Motorsports Park, Fonda Speedway, and Utica-Rome Speedway which will bring
the series back to the Empire State. For the 410 sprint car fans north of
the boarder, the All Stars are taking their style of fast-paced sprint car
racing to Canada for the first time in 2010 when they visit

Autodrome-Grandby & Fonda Speedway in June

The stretch of inaugural events will begin in Canada in Quebec just
southeast of Montreal. Autodrome-Grandby, which is a half-mile, long time
mainstay for dirt racing in Quebec on Friday nights. The All Star Circuit
of Champions will be visiting the track in the heart of French Canada on
Monday, June 7th, which promises to be an exciting event for northern
sprint car fans. Autodrome-Grandby is a wide half mile, with walls both
inside and out. The surface is usually easy on rubber and produces two
solid grooves, either way down low or right up against the outside wall the
track promises to produce exciting racing action.

The first stop in New York this season for the All Stars will be Fonda
Speedway on Wednesday, June 9th. Fonda Speedway is a 1/2 mile dirt oval
located at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Fonda, NY, which has been
hosting races for a number of years. Fonda Speedway hosted its first race
in 1927, so it has a much-storied history. The name Fonda Speedway was
first used in 1953. The track has also operated as Thruway Speedway,
Fonda-Fultonville Speedway and New Fonda Speedway over the years.

July in New York

The 2010 schedule for Chapman’s Can Am Motorsports Park is by far the
biggest in the history of the Lafargeville, New York racetrack and on
Monday, July 12, the All Stars will be a part of the schedule racing at the
4/10-mile track. This event is part of the SUNY Canton Summer Sizzler event
in the month of July. Then the following evening on Tuesday, July 13, the
series will be traveling to Utica-Rome Speedway in Vernon, New York to race
on the 1/2-mile banked oval. Each night the drivers of the All Star Circuit
of Champions will be contending for $5,000 prizes.

Chapman’s Can Am Motorsports Park dates back to 1974 when it was built by
an Evans Mills, NY real estate broker, Leslie W. Brown. The current owner
is racer and local businessperson Tiger Chapman. Normally the track is
known for its various modified classes and street stocks, but in July, the
locals will be experiencing 410-sprint car racing at its best.
The Utica-Rome Speedway is a racetrack with deep history. It began life in
1961, when it was built on some old farmland by Joe Lesik. Utica-Rome
replaced the Vernon Speedway, an early stock car track which was converted
into a horse racing facility. The track typically sees modified classes and
street stock weekly, but when the All Stars invade the track the New York
race fans will get to experience the thrilling action of the series.

In All Star racing history, the series has raced at three different tracks
and held four different races in New York State. They include
Albany-Saratoga Speedway (two races), Fulton Speedway, and Ransomville
Speedway. The last race for the All Stars in the Empire State was held at
Ransomville Speedway in May of 2000. Kelly Kinser went on to win that
