FULTON, NY – (By Dave Medler) – Due the stubbornness of the last blast of winter from mother nature that has made drying conditions tough in Oswego county, the April 6 Test Tune at the Fulton Speedway has been cancelled. The season opener will see all systems go to kick off the 2013 season.
The fire breathing, methanol burning Sprint cars are ready to burn away and kick out the remains of winter and the long off-season. On Saturday, April 13 the Patriot Sprint Tour and A-Verdi Storage Containers presents the “Methanol Melt Down” as the high flying winged warriors invade the Route 57 oval.
The action doesn’t stop with the Sprint Cars as the always exciting SUNY Canton Sportsman, NAPA Late Models and Mod Lites will be vying for qualifying spots for the Outlaw 200 weekend.
At the 2012 Methanol Meltdown Steve Poirier outran over 40 of the best 360 Sprint Car drivers in the Northeast. Look for a strong car count once again with the event being the first 360 race in the region. In the SUNY Canton Sportsman and NAPA Late Models Tim Sears Jr. won both features. Look for different winners on the 13th as Sears is concentrating his efforts with his Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modified in 2013.
SUNY Canton Sportsman teams, even though this carries a guaranteed spot for the October 4-5 Industrial Tire Of CNY Sportsman Shootout on Outlaw 200 weekend, it’s not part of the five-race shootout Series that puts qualified drivers in a top-twelve redraw spot. The Fulton Speedway shootout series event will be Wednesday night, July 17 when Tony Stewart and Kasey Kahne compete against the UNOH All-Star Sprints presented by Tracey Road Equipment.
Tracey Road Equipment and Four-Cylinder Stock teams, with the Test & Tune canceled on the 6th you are invited to come practice on April 13.
