FULTON — The Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints Speedweek invades Fulton Speedway on Saturday.

Joining the Empire Super Sprints in racing action will be the Tracey Road Equipment DIRTcar Modifieds, Dot Foods DIRTcar Sportsman, Billy Whittaker Cars & Trux Late Models, and the E&V Energy Novice Sportsman.

The program will be presented by NAPA Auto Parts and Tim Grevelding Snap-On Tools.

Annually the Empire Super Sprints Speedweek brings the top talent in 360 Sprint Cars from the Northeast and Canada.

In 2018 nearly 40 cars signed into the pits competing to make the 25-car feature field. In the feature, Jordan Poirier from Beloeil, Quebec, picked up the narrow victory over Danny Varin. For Poirier, it was his first win in the United States.

Previous Fulton Speedway ESS Speedweek winners were Jason Barney in 2017, Steve Poirier in 2015 and 2016, Jason Barney in 2014, and Bryan Howland in 2013.

Also Saturday, there will be a “Yellow-Out.” Fans are encouraged to wear yellow in recognition of Rhabdomyosarcoma Month. Rhabdomyosarcoma is a fast-growing soft tissue cancer.

In the track midway there will be an auction, door prizes, and other activities. All money donated will go directly to Golisano Children’s Hospital in Syracuse to help fight childhood cancer.

Gates will open at 5 p.m. and racing starts at 7 p.m. at the track, located along Route 57, just south of Fulton. Fans 18 and younger receive free grandstand admission.
