New Sponsor Will Help Kyle Moffit on the Empire Super Sprints Tour for 2006.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Just a mere 18 years old, but South Dayton, N.Y.'s Kyle Moffit is already an Empire Super Sprint (ESS) A-Main winner and one of many exciting young talents. As the nativepoker.com Tour gets ready to go green for the first time on May 6th at the Fulton Speedway, new lettering will flank the wing panels of the young driver's J&J, family owned #77.

With the addition of Hills Trucking from Fredonia, N.Y. as the primary backer, the 2004 Jereco Competition Engines Rookie of the Year will again tackle the full ESS season. "Hills Trucking came to us at the right time, we weren't sure if we had enough funds to do the whole tour this year, but now we can." noted the usually soft spoken pilot. "We were going to run the first few shows and see what was going to happen. My parents paid for everything last year, we didn't have one sponsor at all and it was getting tough by the end of the season. We just love running with ESS and it would have been tough to sit out some shows if we had to"

Two cars, the newer J&J along with a Trevis Built as a back up is part of the stable, two motors with one being prepped by ESS figure Ron Buckner will provide the power for Moffit who has two career ESS victories to his credit. Along with the ESS tour, some Southern Ontario Sprint events at Ohsweken to prep for the Canadian Sprint Nationals and some trips to the Blaney owned Sharon Speedway is on the agenda.

A white and black paint scheme will be the colors for 2006 and the exciting young driver will also be on hand this weekend at the Carquest Motorsports Expo as a part of the ESS autograph session on Saturday at 2PM. A total of eight cars will be a part of the ESS booth headlined by two-time and defending champion Lance Yonge.

The nativepoker.com Tour for the Empire Super Sprints will boast a 37 race schedule with trips to 18 of the finest dirt tracks speedways in the US and Canada. Kyle Moffit is one of ESS brightest future stars and with the help of Hills Trucking, the dedicated family will once again be in the pit area at each ESS event.
