SYRACUSE, N.Y. — With the 30th anniversary of the Empire Super Sprints on the horizon in 2013, the New York-based 360 winged sprint car series has announced that Lucas Oil Products, Inc. will return as sponsor of the tour.
“We are so honored to have Lucas Oil back our tour for the fifth consecutive year.” said ESS President Chuck Miller. “It’s no secret that its harder and harder to stay successful in racing through these times but with Lucas’ tremendous support is good to know that we will be able to give the race teams another very lucrative point fund for next year.”
The one of a kind Lucas/ESS shield designed exclusively by the Lucas Oil art department will again be showcased at all Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints events throughout the 2013 season.
Not only will ESS teams benefit from a large cash point fund but also a large amount of Lucas Oil products as well.
Coming off a season where 99 different drivers attended ESS events, next year is looking to see even more competitors. For the full point ESS events in 2012, the average car count was 30.8 with a high of 38 at Rolling Wheels July 3. Nineteen drivers attended at least two-thirds of the ESS events and will receive from the overall point fund and contingencies.
