BREWERTON, NY – (By Dave Medler) – When it was announced in February about a July 4 holiday special named “Red, White and Brew” at the Brewerton Speedway July 3,4,5 and 6, the date seemed so far away. The excitement is building as the time is here in just one week.
The holiday weekend starts with a bang on July 3 with one of the largest fireworks displays in Central New York. This free-to-the-public display is set-off at dusk just south of the track on the Oneida River.
Fans are welcomed to park at the speedway and take the short walk to the optimum viewing locations near the river. Speedway sponsors, the Waterfront Tavern and the Anchor Bar and Grill, are both waterfront locations that will provide comfortable and optimum viewing. Fans are encouraged to arrive early, as thousands of spectators pack the Brewerton area for the display.
It is only fitting that Sprint Cars, known as ‘America’s Race Car,’ highlight the first race night of the Red, White and Brew weekend. The Lucas Oil ESS Sprints will make their first of two 2013 stops at Brewerton on July 4. The event will be the second of a four-leg New York Sprint Week for the ESS stars, with a great field of the winged warriors expected to be in action. Joining the ESS will be the popular SUNY Canton Sportsman. The race will be round-two of the exciting Industrial Tire Of CNY Sportsman Shootout Series.
Not only will the Sportsman be racing for $1,000 to win, there will also be a guaranteed spot that puts the winner into the automatic re-draw for the Industrial Tire Of CNY Sportsman Shootout race that’s part of the 28th annual Sunoco Fulton Ethanol Facility Outlaw 200 Weekend presented by SUNY Canton October 4-5.
Arguably the most competitive class anywhere in the Northeast, Brewerton’s Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modifieds will headline the Friday night portion of the Holiday Weekend. IMCA Modifieds, the always exciting Mod Lites and 4-Cylinder Super Stocks complete Friday’s four-star show. A second fireworks show completes the racing action on Friday night.
For just $20 the Holiday Weekend continues on Saturday night at Brewerton’s sister track, Fulton Speedway.
NAPA and Safety Kleen will present The Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints plus the Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modifieds, SUNY Canton Sportsman, NAPA Late Models, E & V Energy Novice Sportsman and the Four Cylinder Stocks.
The night will end with a huge fireworks display. Bring your ticket stub from either the Thursday or Friday (July 4-5) Brewerton show and receive $2 off your admission.
