SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- For the second consecutive year, the Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards Winery will become a sponsor for the traveling show of the Empire Super Sprints (ESS). In a large contribution, Hazlitt will be awarding several prizes at each event as well at the season ending banquet which will total well over $4,000.

The 39 date ESS Tour 2002 is promising to be the most exciting ever for the fans and the most lucrative ever for the competitors. Hazlitt will provide awards to the top three finishers at each event along with prizes to the nightly Walt's Hobby Dash Series winner and the hard luck driver at each event. At the year end awards banquet on November 16th at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, N.Y. drivers in the top 20 in the final points will see something special handed to them courtesy from Hazlitt.

Not only will the Hazlitt logo be displayed at each ESS event but also on the Woodring Racing team cars of seven-time ESS champion Mike Woodring and young female star Erin Crocker. Rob Beattie is Hazlitt's representative and spokesperson at each ESS event and he will also crew on the Woodring team cars.

Owned and operated by 5th and 6th generation Hazlitts, the rustic tasting room is overflowing with antique tools, Indian artifacts and memorabilia from days gone by. Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards offers a large assortment of wines, both red and white.
