SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Lucas Oil will return as sponsor of the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints for the 12th consecutive season.

“Lucas Oil not only brings us a big boost in our annual point fund, but they have help support us in so many other ways,” noted ESS President Chuck Miller, “We are very fortunate to have the Lucas name attached to our tour for so many years.”

With a big help from Lucas Oil, at the annual awards banquet, over 20 teams shared in a $50,000 cash point fund and also brought home over $3,000 in Lucas Oil Products. Champion Paulie Colagiovanni took home just shy of $9,000.

Colagiovanni made history by being the youngest champion in the 36-year history of the club and he did so with some of the very best 360 drivers in the Northeast and Canada behind with names like Chuck Hebing, Matt Tanner, Jason Barney, Billy VanInwegen and others.

The 2020 version of the Lucas Oil ESS schedule was released on New Year’s Day and will start it’s point season at the Fulton (N.Y.) Speedway on April 24, with the season concluding Sept. 12 at New York’s Can-Am Speedway.

Last year 12 different drivers visited victory lane with VanInwegen, Jonathan Preston and Josh Pieniazek picking up their first career ESS A-Main victories.
