VSM Abrasives Canadian Invasion Point Championship Returns to ESS for 2003.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- For the second consecutive year, VSM Abrasives has become the title sponsor for the Canadian Invasion point fund for the Empire Super Sprints (ESS). Points earned at the nine ESS events that will be held "North of the Border" will carry a separate payoff from the ESS overall points championship.

Last year, Canada's own Ryan Coniam collected the lions share from the VSM point fund and ironically Coniam's main sponsor is the very same Canada based company. With Coniam moving on to the All-Star Circuit of Champions circuit for 2003, fans can expect a new Canadian Invasion champion.

Five events will be held in the French speaking province of Quebec, two each at Autodromes Granby and Drummond with a single show at the Edelweiss Speedway in Cantley. The four events in Ontario will see two at the Brockville Ontario Speedway with single stops to the Cornwall Motor Speedway and for the first time ever the Ohsweken Speedway.

VSM Abrasives has been manufacturing quality coated abrasive products for more than 137 years. Originally founded in Hannover, Germany in 1864, the company initially marketed to European manufacturers. Due to the high demand for their products in Europe, VSM decided to expand their territory to the United States. In 1978, VSM broke ground to build a manufacturing plant in O'Fallon, Missouri. Today that plant services all of the United States as well as assists Mexico and Canada.

VSM Canada is located in Oakville, Ontario which entices the sponsorship of the Canadian Invasion Tour. The VSM logo is also proudly displayed on each car entered in an ESS sanctioned event. For more information you are encouraged to log on to www.vsmabrasives.com or www.vsmcanada.com.

Oh Canada--It's the very best of "America's Race Cars" coming to your house, the first VSM event will be Friday, May 30th at the fast quarter mile in Brockville, Ontario. It will be excitement guaranteed!!!
