I LOVE NY Honors Motorsports with NAPA Super DIRT Week Display at New York State Fair

SYRACUSE, NY – August 22, 2018 – The great end-of-summer tradition in New York state, much like in other states across this great country, is a trip to the annual State Fair.

What started as a nod to the agricultural community in the 1800s has evolved into a colorful 13-day (August 22-September 3) celebration of New York’s varied offerings, including motorsports.

When visiting the Great New York State Fair, visitors will have a chance to explore the two biggest motorsports events in New York State: NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week and NASCAR Weekend at Watkins Glen International Speedway.
