Sunoco Super Series races holiday events at Angola Motor Speedway in 2003.
Salem, Ind. (November 26, 2002) -- CRA Sunoco Super Series officials and Angola Motor Speedway officials announced today that Angola Motor Speedway would host two Sunoco Super Series events again in 2003. Angola Motor Speedway has had a Sunoco Super Series event on its schedule every year since 1998. Angola Motor Speedway will continue to have its traditional Fourth of July Sunoco Super Series show on Friday, July 4th. Last season's 4th of July show was one of the best races of the 2002 season with Scott Hantz and eventual winner Junior Hanley battling side by side for several laps.
For the first time ever, Angola Motor Speedway will have the Sunoco Super Series be a part of their huge 2003 Labor Day Weekend show on Saturday, August 30th.
"We have had tremendous success with the 4th of July show the last two years," remarked Angola Motor Speedway owner Dick Poe. "With all the lakes in this area, Angola Motor Speedway draws its best crowds on holiday weekends. It just seemed to be a natural fit to have the Sunoco Super Series be a part of our big Labor Day Weekend show!"
Angola Motor Speedway owner Dick Poe has been a strong supporter of the Sunoco Super Series far several seasons. Poe is the car owner of 2000 Sunoco Super Series Champion and Rookie Of The Year Scott Hantz. Poe is also the owner of EMF Corporation, a sponsor of the Sunoco Super Series and the sponsor of Champion Racing Association with its outlaw late model event at Indianapolis Raceway Park.
"I couldn't begin to tell you how much Dick Poe has meant to the Sunoco Super Series," commented Sunoco Super Series Director Glenn Luckett. "Dick gives the series a great facility to race at twice a year, he fields one of the best teams this series has ever had with driver Scott Hantz, and he has been the sponsor of the Hard Luck Award the past two seasons because he cares about all the series racers from the winners down to the guy who finishes last. It is the effort of people like Dick Poe that have helped make the Sunoco Super Series a success!"
