OSWEGO, NY (July 1, 2013) – The second round of the Novelis Fan Can Chase will take place this Saturday at Oswego Speedway as a part of Toys for Tots ‘Christmas in July’ presented by Days Inn and Knights Inn of Oswego.
Saturday night’s collection will take place outside the main gate to the Speedway from 3pm-6pm.
Over 15,000 aluminum cans were recycled at the Speedway’s first Fan Can Chase event back on May 25, with Carl Schadt recycling over 2,700 cans to lead the individual standings.
Ron Gunther, Brad Smart, Jim Larkin, and Mike Howard currently fill the top five positions in the individual collection standings with Speedway tickets and other prizes on the line for those race fans that recycle the most cans by season’s end.
The donation of 100-199 New York State 6 cent recyclable cans from the same household will earn one family member a $7 food voucher for the concession stands on that night. Households with donations of 200-499 cans will earn (1) General Admission ticket for a future regular race night, while those who donate between 500-999 cans will be rewarded with (2) General Admission tickets for a future regular race night and one chance to win a 2-Seat Supermodified ride to be raffled that night.
All fans are reminded not to split up their donations on the remaining Fan Can Chase race dates. Several fans in the past have separated race date donations into different names and have missed out on season long prizes even though those multiple donations were, in fact, from the same household. Splitting up race date donations, in excess of 100 cans will not result in additional $7 food vouchers being issued.
As in the past, names and phone numbers will need to be on all bags turned in and a photo ID will be required, as only one food voucher will be issued per residence. Food vouchers will be dated for use on the date they are issued and must be used in one concession transaction. Food vouchers are good for all menu items except beer and wine.
