Malta, New York (August 9, 2017)- When the green flag drops on this Friday night’s program at Albany-Saratoga Speedway the CRSA Sprints will be on hand for their first and only appearance of 2017 at “The Great Race Place.”

In their lone appearance in 2016, Cory Sparks made his way to victory lane. Expect Sparks to be on hand to try and repeat the feat. Coming into Friday night’s event Thomas Radivoy leads the point standings with three wins and a 21 point advantage.

The man chasing him in the championship standings is a name familiar to Albany-Saratoga faithful. Jeff Trombley a former Modified competitor and winner at the Malta oval comes into the night with one CRSA win on the season.
