Ohsweken, Ontario – April 18, 2014 – The roster for Ohsweken Speedway’s Corr/Pak Merchandising 360 Sprint Car division continues to grow in advance of Opening Night on May 16. The latest name on that list is Sprakers, New York driver Jessica Zemken, who will race the #77 for the Hill’s Racing Team.
Jessica’s resume includes wins in Modifieds and Sprint Cars, and a track championship at Utica-Rome Speedway. She become the first female feature winner in American Sprint Car Series history in a Patriot Region event at Brockville Ontario Speedway in 2007, and last year became the first female driver to qualify for Oswego Speedway’s International Classic 200.
“JZ” has been a regular visitor to Ohsweken over the years with various Sprint Car tours, and she has contended for feature wins on several occasions. A flat tire on the last lap was all that separated her from an Empire Super Sprints tour feature win at Ohsweken in 2006, in fact. She joins the growing weekly roster which also includes 2013 Ohsweken winners Glenn Styres, Jamie Collard, Mitch Brown, Jim Huppunen, and Mikey Kruchka.
The Hill’s Racing Team #77 owned by Miles and Pam Hill will have support from Corr/Pak Merchandising, Townline Variety, Iroquois Hereford Farms, M-One, and Tobacco Plus. Jessica’s schedule will also include asphalt racing, with weekly Supermodified competition at New York’s Oswego Speedway on Saturday nights.
