Print this.

(Sodus, NY) The Patriot Sprint Tour (PST) is pleased to announce its tentative racing schedule for the 2016 season which includes 36 events at 22 different venues, encompassing New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and the Canadian province of Ontario. A total of 27 events comprise the PST American tour plus nine additional shows in the mix to make up the PST Canadian tour.

“We’re a bit ahead with the 2016 schedule and I’m working with a few track promoters in the Northeast in hopes that we can add another few races,” said Mike Emhof, PST Owner.

Fans throughout the Northeast will have the opportunity to experience the excitement of 360 Sprint car racing. Racers will get to enjoy the diversity at a variety of venues that the PST offers.

The first PST Canadian points race kicks off in Thorold, Ontario at the Merrittville Speedway for the annual ‘Spring Sizzler,’ paying $2,000-to-win on April 23. The first PST American Series points race will be a long awaited return for the Patriots at the Five Mile Point Speedway in Kirkwood, NY on Sunday, May 1. This will be the first series race at the Quarter Mile Oval since 2005.

Tracks familiar to the Patriot Sprint Tour such as Canandaigua Motorsports Park and the high banks of Woodhull are up next. The tour rolls on to Eastern New York State for the first time in a number of years, attacking the Albany-Saratoga Speedway and Fonda Speedway on Memorial Day Weekend. Both events are $2,000-to-win paydays.

A couple of memorial events dot the schedule. The Patriots will make their annual trek south for the Joe Whitcomb Memorial at the Selinsgrove Speedway, a $2,571-to-win race with time trials on June 18. That weekend, the winner’s share reaches $3,500-to-win at Rolling Wheels Raceway Park.

A pair of races presented by Bonnell Collision Centers will fill a weekend in late June with one race at Raceway 7 in Conneaut, OH on June 24 and Stateline Speedway in Busti, NY on June 25. 

The series continues its traditional holiday bonus races to celebrate our country’s independence at Little Valley Speedway (July 1), followed by Mercer Raceway Park (July 2), and the Eriez Speedway (July 3) rounding out a full throttle sprint car holiday weekend.

Other notable tracks hosting PST American Series races include Ransomville Speedway, Brewerton Speedway, Fulton Speedway, Penn Can Speedway.

The PST Canadian Series will swing through Brockville Ontario Speedway and Cornwall Motor Speedway on two summer weekends. The big payday and a weekend with great prestige will be hosted by Oshweken Speedway for the $12,000-to-win Canadian Sprint Car Nationals.
