SYRACUSE, NY – One of the most popular stops on the famed 401 that stretches through the province of Ontario, Canada is 730 Truck Stop in Cardinal. Bob Lodge loves racing and the 2011 season marks his third consecutive year that 730 will be a part of the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints (ESS) and the Northwood 2 Construction/LaSalle Motorsports Canadian Sprint Car Series.
Its easy to find, simply at exit 730 on the 401, a favorite stop among the ESS teams either heading to Quebec or to the States. 730 Truck stop provides all types of fuel, Road Ranger Restaurant, showers, TV room, WiFi access, travel permits with much more.

As a truck driver, Bob recognized the need for a place for drivers to stop along the 401. He always thought that this area of the 401 was lacking in regards to truck stops and exit 730 seemed like the perfect location.
In 1987, Bob purchased the property which is now home to the 730 Truck Stop and the Road Ranger Restaurant from Ryder. At this time the only building on the property was a 3 bay garage which included 2 small diesel pumps. Bob used his connections in the trucking industry to let drivers know that he was open for business and the customers started coming.
With the help of 730, the Canadian Sprint Car Series once again has a point fund of over $10,000 and will reward 15 drivers from the seven full point events which kicks off with the ESS opener on April 30th at the Can-Am Motorsports Park.
