FULTON, NY – (By Dave Medler) – SUNY Canton one of the long time supporters of the Fulton Speedway and title sponsor of the Sportsman division is proud to present a night of high speed, side by side racing this Saturday on the “High Banks” of the Fulton Speedway.
SUNY Canton has been long known as one of the top schools in the State Universities of New York system of schools, but in all of the Northeast. What SUNY Canton has to offer is a family atmosphere and class sizes that allows all professors and instructors to know their students on a one to one basis. What they have to offer is too numerous to mention here so please visit http://www.canton.edu/ to see all the opportunities they have. As they say at SUNY Canton, “Great Majors, Great Careers.” As always please support those who support racing.
On the race card this Saturday will be the Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modifieds, SUNY Canton Sportsman, NAPA Late Models, E&V Energy Novice Sportsman and Four Cylinder Stocks.
Have you always wanted to challenge the “High Banks” of the Fulton Speedway? This Saturday will be your chance as the One-On-One Spectator Races are part of the nights action. All you need to hit the track is your registered & insured street vehicle, a valid driver’s license and a D.O.T approved helmet. When you get to the track head to the track office behind the main grandstands to signup.
Last Saturday night was both joy and relief for Pat Ward as he won the Tracey Road Equipment Big Block Modified feature. Friday night at the Brewerton Speedway Ward saw one slip away on the last lap when the second place runner who lost his brakes got into Ward taking both out of contention for the win. Ward stated after his Fulton win that 2013 hasn’t been up to his or his teams standards and it felt like a huge weight was lifted off their shoulders.
Is there anything better than a first time winner and the excitement they show in victory lane? Jason Occhino after a longtime of disappointment put it all together picking up his first ever SUNY Canton Sportsman feature win in front of a cheering grandstand.
Once again the NAPA Late Models put on a great feature that saw Alan Fink win his second in a row. In victory lane, an emotional Fink dedicated his win to one of the legends in racing, his grandfather “Irish” Jack Murphy who recently passed away. If you haven’t seen the NAPA Late Models, you owe it to yourself to check them out.
As the weeks click off and the driving skills in the E&V Energy Novice Sportsman improve by leaps and bounds, it was Jeremy Dygert who parked his sharpNo.22 in victory lane.
Can anyone beat Skip DeGroff in the Four Cylinder Stocks? As of last Saturday nights racing DeGroff is undefeated in 2013.
Adult grandstand admission will be $12 with everyone 18 yrs old and younger admitted free to the grandstands. Pit admission is $25 members/ $30 non-members. Gates will open at 5 with racing at 7.
