ELS Nationals Set To Ignite 2009 Season
Malta, NY - The Empire Lightning Sprints made their on track debut Saturday morning at the Albany-Saratoga Speedway. This was the first year clubs first event at any track and did a great job, impressing everyone in attendance.
The ELS brought 20 racers to the Great Race Place for inspection and a test and tune session. Drivers turned fast laps around the 4/10ths mile oval for three hours in preparation for their big season opener next Saturday night.
The season opener will be a big one. About a month ago it was transformed into the first annual Empire Lightning Sprints Nationals. The winner will walk away with a minimum of $1,000. The purse will increase as more cars pre-register. At present time a field of 30 cars is expected to invade the Malta oval.
