Names like Andy Jankowiak of Buffalo, N.Y.; Mike Leaty of Williamson, N.Y.; Daryl Lewis, Jr., of Ontario, N.Y.; and Scott Wylie of Blasdell, N.Y.; along with Sportsman racers Sherri Hogan of Oakville, Ontario; Andy Lewis of Ontario, N.Y.; Mike Ramos of Lyons Falls, N.Y., and Dave Koszlowski of Clarence, N.Y., are expected in attendance along with several others and they will be looking to take on the Evans Mills regulars and the challenging speedway configuration.

“It’s going to be an exciting race for us,” stated Sportsman regular and proponent of the event, Mike Ramos. “We were looking for something special and the Race of Champions Sportsman Series fits great with Evans Mills. I think it is going to be a great day on Sunday and we are really looking forward to it.”
