This will be the first time the Series has visited the historic track located in upstate New York.

The race will the final of twelve regular season events for the USAR Hooters ProCup Series Northern Division and could be a deciding factor on which driver will enter the Championship Series as the top seed from the division. Among the drivers expected to enter the race and excited about visiting the track is Benny Gordon.

"I have never raced there or even seen it but we hope to be celebrating the Northern division title and getting ready for the Championship Series," Gordon said. "We have had a good run here lately and hopefully we can continue that in New York."

The race will be held at the uniquely shaped half-mile track and should provide the fans in upstate New York a chance to see the Hooters ProCup Series cars in person.

"We are very happy to be back in the upstate region of New York," said USAR director of Operations Tony Cox. "That entire area has great race fans and we hope everyone will come out and see these 3,300-pound stock cars put on a great show."
