Can collection and free kids admission programs off to a good start at Oswego.

Two programs recently announced for the 2007 season at Oswego Speedway have gotten off to good starts. Fans have already started to drop off recyclable aluminum cans to the Box Office to help with the 100,000 can goal and several parents have signed their kids up for the 2007 Kids On-Track program which will gain them free admission to the races.

The Oswego Speedway would like to thank the several fans that have already turned in recyclable cans before the season has even started to help in reaching the goal of 100,000 cans collected during the 2007 racing season. Fans have been able to drop off a minimum of 150 cans to pick up a Novelis 150 “Can-Do” Pass. This pass will be punched while purchasing a race ticket on six different race dates of choice by a fan from opening Day through July 21st. After being punched on six dates the pass can be turned in for free grandstand admission for the August 4th “Mr. Novelis Supermodified” race.

Fans can continue to drop off cans at the Box Office on any weekday through May 25th or on Saturday May 26th at the first Novelis “Get your can to the Speedway” can collection day at the track. Full details of the can collection program which includes, Reba McEntire concert tickets, Classic Friday and Sunday tickets along with $1,000 in cash can be viewed by clicking on the image of the “Can-Do” Pass in the left margin of the Oswego Speedway’s homepage.

Another program has gotten off to a quick start for 2007 as well. The first batch of ID Badges were mailed out last week to kids who have signed up for the 2007 Kids On-Track program. Elementary aged school kids are eligible for the program and there is no fee to sign up. Members will gain free admission to the races right through August 22nd and they will be able to turn in their ID Badge to get a Classic Week 3-Day Pass for just $20. Full program details and the list of weekly giveaways can be viewed by clicking on 2007 Activities link under the Kids On-Track menu list on the left navigation menu on the Oswego Speedway’s home page.

Parents are reminded to sign up their kids even if they were in the program in 2006. As kids grow out of elementary school they grow out of the program. Those teenagers that have grown out of the program will still be eligible for $2 admission through age 16. Free admission will only be offered to registered Kids On-Track members for 2007. The database for the 2006 members has been cleared and members that are registered users of the Speedway website simply have to log in, click on their name in the upper left corner, edit member services and subscribe to 2007 Kids On-Track. For parents signing up their kids for the first time, signing up instructions are in the 2007 Activities and Program Info links under the Kids On-Track menu.

The Oswego Speedway is looking forward to fans contributing in the 100,000 recycling can goal to help Habitat for Humanity build a new house in the Oswego Community in 2008. The Speedway is also looking forward to the largest membership for the Kids On-Track program ever in 2007.
