(CANANDAIGUA, N.Y.) — The Ontario County Fair Board and Paul Cole have signed a deal for 2018 and 2019 for the operation of the speedway in Canandaigua, N.Y. Formerly known as Canandaigua Speedway, the track will be managed and operated as Land of Legends Raceway, building off of the longtime nickname of the famed 1/2-mile dirt track.
Paul Cole is a Newark, NY businessman who currently operates Super Gen Products which is a nationwide distributor of Champion Power Equipment (generators, pressure washers, winches etc.) Over the last several years, Mr. Cole has been a sponsor of several drivers, the CRSA 305, Patriot Sprint Series and the GRIT Sportsman Series.
As preparations for 2018 begin, Land of Legends has already signed with DIRTcar for both Big Block Modifieds and the Crate Sportsman classes. An expanded 305 Sprint class sanctioned by IMCA Racesaver will balance out the weekly race card with the traditional street stock class that Canandaigua has long enjoyed.
A Super DIRTCar Series race, along with visits from the 360 Sprints and other traveling series will spotlight the history and future of Land of Legends Raceway.
“Our plan is to bring the racing experience to new levels for fans, racers and sponsors,” said Cole. “Canandaigua has a long tradition of great racing and we hope to continue that with bigger purses, exciting shows and to build a desire for every racing fan to put The Land of Legends on their weekly list of things to do.”
