OSWEGO, NY (June 27, 2018) - After an astounding 22,041 cans were collected as part of Oswego Speedway’s 68th Annual Season Opener just one month ago, the second Novelis Fan Can Chase of the 2018 season will commence as part of Galloway Century 21 and Oswego D Bus Independence Weekend ‘Grand Prix’ night this Saturday, June 30.

This Saturday night, the can collection will take place between the hours of 4:30 and 6:00pm just outside of the speedway’s main entrance on Nolan Swift Drive. It will run throughout the duration of hot laps and conclude just prior to the group time trials.

So far, Mark Denny and Jim Larkin are tied as leaders of the Fan Can Chase each with 1,250 cans while Jamie Geroux (1,105), Mary Spaulding (1,080), and George Geroux (1,050) are all in the top five.

There were 21 fans who donated at least 1,000 cans or more at the collection held on May 26.

Fans are reminded that 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.

The final Fan Can Chase of 2018 will be held on the night of the 32nd annual $10,000 to win Mr. Novelis Supermodified and Mr. Pathfinder Bank SBS scheduled for Saturday, July 21.

Racing action at Oswego Speedway will get underway at 6:15pm this Saturday with group time trials before qualifying heats for the Novelis Supermodified and Pathfinder Bank SBS ‘Grand Prixs’ get the green flag at 6:45pm.
