THIS IS NOW A GUARANTEED $1500 TO WIN RACE !!!!!!!!!!!!
Earlier this year, we lost one of our truely beloved racers. George Cannellos passed away in January. For those of you who didnt know him, you certainly missed out. He was a hell of a man, a WW II B-17 veteran, a truely wonderful person, and a racer who simply never quit. George raced a red 68 Dodge Charger for more years than I can remember, and if he wasnt throwing pizza at Cosmos on the SU Hill, he was probably having a chat with someone about life, WW II, just good times and especially racing.
As of today, we have an additional $700 bonus to the Pro winner during our September 8th NYS CHampionship race. $500 has been put up anonimously by " friends of George Cannellos ", $100 by Competition Wedge Engines, and $100 by Jeff and Lisa Parker, Shock Doc Racing. I wouldnt be surprised if the pot grows a little larger. This will be paid out to the race winner, in memory of George and the Cannellos Family.
We will be honoring George during the race, with a special pass down the track, and maybe a few other things. The family of George will be on hand, and if all goes well, we may have a special guest riding along for Georges honor lap.
Please join us on Sept 8th, take a few minutes to learn a little about George that day, talk with his family, and help remember a great friend of ESTA and a truely wonderful person.
I have attached a link, so that you may know George a biut better.
i remember the last time i raced ol george....i had my challenger and he had the charger and we were in the finals together in a gamblers race....we were setting our cars into the beams and all of a sudden his grand kid that was with him steps out in front of the car and trips the beam with his foot and somehow that screwed up everything and i got the win....ill never forget that..george and i lauged about it for a long while after that...than he used to come over and visit me and my challenger when ever he and the boy were there....he was a good ol boy for sure......scott b.
