OSWEGO, NY – After 116,000 cans were collected throughout a total of just three race nights in 2017, the popular Novelis ‘Fan Can Chase’ will open for a 13th season at Oswego Speedway as part of Holiday Inn Express & Suites ‘opening day’ May 26.
The can collection will take place from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. just outside of the main entrance to the speedway as this season participants will aim to push the total can count for the past 13 years to more than one and a half million.
Once again, the prizes for the leaders in the Fan Can Chase will be quite rewarding.
The winner of the 2018 Fan Can Chase will receive his or her choice of two 2019 regular season reserved seat tickets, two 2019 season pit passes, or two 2019 regular season SkyDeck passes for their efforts.
Positions two and three in the Fan Can Chase will have the opportunity to pick from the remaining two prizes.
Fans representing households four through 12 in the running will all receive 2018 general admission grandstands passes for two as part the 62nd running of Budweiser International Classic Weekend on September 1 and 2.
All households with donations of 1,000 or more cans will also win guaranteed general admission passes for two on Saturday and Sunday of Budweiser International Classic Weekend.
Households with donations of 200-499 cans will earn one general admission ticket for a future regular race night, while those who donate between 500-999 cans will be rewarded with two general admission tickets for a future regular race night.
Only one reward, per household, per redemption can be cashed in on a single race night.
Once a household donates to a certain prize level (200, 500 or 1,000) they will receive only that level’s rewards, not all those below as well.
The dates for the Novelis Fan Chase in 2018 include this Saturday night, Galloway Century 21 and Oswego D-Bus ‘Grand Prix’ Night on June 30, as well as the 32nd annual $10,000 to win Mr. Novelis Supermodified and Mr. Pathfinder Bank SBS event set for July 21.
Racing action at Oswego will get under way Saturday beginning at 4 p.m. when Supermodified heat races hit the track. SBS heats, the first Jim Shampine Memorial Twin 50, the Tony White Memorial 35, and second Twin 50 will follow.
Tickets are available for $25 and can be purchased by calling the speedway box office at (315)-342-0646. Kids 16 and younger are still free in 2018.
