The Dundee, NY, facility is one of the premier circuits in Central NY and its 4/10 mi. banked oval is well suited for Mini Sprint racing.

Lessord's provides sales and service for a full line of Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth, and Jeep cars and trucks. Lessord's will have some of the current line of new vehicles on display at the track that night and the vehicles will lead the parade lap before the Shootout feature race. Representatives of Lessord's will be on hand to talk to the fans and they will participate in the winner's circle festivities. The Shootout has caught the interest of many Mini Sprint teams in the Northeast. Already teams have pre-registered for, not only the Black Rock date, but for the all of the remaining Shootout races.
