OSWEGO, NY (August 1) – Oswego Speedway and Novelis, the series sponsor of the famed Supermodified division, bring night number three of the 2012 ‘Novelis Fan Can Chase’ back to the Steel Palace this Saturday, August 4. The Novelis recycling station will be set up outside the main entrance to the Speedway on Saturday from 3-6pm.
This weekend’s redemption will be the final night of three.
The program prizes offered for 2012 will again focus on reducing the overall cost of a night at Oswego Speedway for fans. Budweiser International Classic Weekend tickets and season passes will still be the primary prizes that are awarded.
New this season is the addition of a chance at a 2-Seat Supermodified ride. Households with donations of 500 or more cans will receive one chance at a 2-Seat ride.
All households with donations of 1,000 or more cans on an individual collection night will win guaranteed general admission passes for two on Saturday and Sunday of Budweiser International Classic Weekend, as well as a chance to win a ride in the 2-Seat Supermodified.
In the past two seasons the Fan Can Chase has surpassed the half million mark in recyclable cans thanks to the generous race fans that have donated an average of over 100,000 cans for each of the past six seasons in exchange for race tickets and other Oswego Speedway prizes.
