The efforts of the sponsor programs rewards SUNY Canton with admissions from many people that are associated in local Motorsports.

ESS has one of their own in Kelly Hebing who is now a sophomore student.  Kelly is known as Lil Cobra, the daughter of two-time ESS champion, “The Cobra”, Chuck Hebing.  Kelly will be seen a few ESS events this year with her #10 sporting the SUNY Canton logo on her sprint car.

The 2014, the SUNY Canton Series returns with an increase involvement, in years past the top ten in points received point fund money but now that has been increased to the top 15 drivers.  The tracks that will host SUNY Canton events are Utica-Rome, Can-Am, Brewerton, Mohawk Int’l and the Fulton Speedways.

SUNY Canton has also returned to title sponsor the second annual CNY Speedweek.  The five nights of racing in a row last year was one of the most talked about events in the 360 sprint car world.  This years SUNY Canton CNY Speedweek will kick off at Brewerton on July 2 and then go to Rolling Wheels, Can-Am, Fulton and conclude at Utica-Rome.
