OSWEGO, NY (May 22, 2018) - After 116,000 cans were collected throughout a total of just three race nights in 2017, the popular Novelis ‘Fan Can Chase’ will open for a thirteenth season at Oswego Speedway as part of Holiday Inn Express & Suites ‘Opening Day’ this Saturday, May 26.

The can collection will take place from 1:30pm to 3:30pm this just outside of the main entrance to the speedway as this season participants will aim to push the total can count for the past thirteen years to over one and a half million.

Once again, the prizes for the leaders in the Fan Can Chase will be quite rewarding .

The winner of the 2018 Fan Can Chase will receive his or her choice of two 2019 regular season reserved seat tickets, two 2019 season pit passes, or two 2019 regular season SkyDeck passes for their efforts.

Positions two and three in the Fan Can Chase will have the opportunity to pick from the remaining two prizes.

Fans representing households four through twelve in the running will all receive 2018 general admission grandstands passes for two as part the 62nd running of Budweiser International Classic Weekend on September 1 and 2.

All households with donations of 1,000 or more cans will also win guaranteed general admission passes for two on Saturday and Sunday of Budweiser International Classic Weekend.

Households with donations of 200-499 cans will earn one general admission ticket for a future regular race night, while those who donate between 500-999 cans will be rewarded with two general admission tickets for a future regular race night.

Only one reward, per household, per redemption can be cashed in on a single race night. Once a household donates to a certain prize level (200, 500, 1000) they will receive only that level’s rewards, not all those below as well.
