SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- After successful treks to Quebec and Ontario, Canada, it's time for the 20th Anniversary Tour of the Empire Super Sprints (ESS) to come back to the good 'ole USA with two events on the Champlain Valley Racing Association Circuit. This Friday night, August, 1st it's the second visit to the Albany-Saratoga Speedway and then on Sunday the third it will be off to the Devil's Bowl Speedway, Vermont's fastest half-mile dirt track.
Back on June 6th, current ESS point leader picked up his third of four wins so far on the 2003 season. Lutz bested Mike Woodring and Bill Bailey for the A-Main victory. Woodring along with his teammate Erin Crocker are expected to be in the field along with local stars John Karklin Jr. and Jeff VanDusen.
Three Engler Machine and Tool heat events will kick off the action followed by the Gabriel's Super Market/Walt's Hobby Dash and the KSE Racing Products B-Main. The finale will once again be the 25 A-Main event.
It will be a welcomed Saturday rest day before "America's Race Cars" head northeast to Fair Haven, Vermont for the only visit of the season at the Devil's Bowl Speedway. Last year it was Woodring beating Lutz to the stripe in an exciting feature event. Rob Dietrick, New Hampshire's Don Sharp Jr. and Lance Yonge also finished in the top spots. These top sprint chauffeurs along with second and third placeman in the points in Justin Barger and Dan Kaszubinski will be in the pits on both nights.
The racing program will be the same at the "Bowl" with the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame and Museum sponsoring the four lap dash for cash.
