FREE TRIPS, T-SHIRT GIVEAWAY AND FIREWORKS HIGHLIGHT BACK TO THE TRACK WEEKEND AT TIOGA DOWNS AND VERNON DOWNS




Full promotional schedule takes place during racing July 5-7

NICHOLS, NY – Come to the races and win a free vacation! That’s the theme at Tioga Downs and Vernon Downs this weekend during the annual Back to the Track celebration.

Back to the Track, an industry wide promotional campaign will be celebrated at Vernon Downs on Friday and Saturday nights during live racing and at Tioga Downs on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

The highlight of the weekend at both tracks is the opportunity to win a trip to both the Little Brown Jug in Delaware, Ohio and the Breeders’ Crown at Mohegan Sun Pocono Downs, two of the premier events in harness racing.

Other highlights include a commemorative t-shirt giveaway (while supplies last), breakfast with the pros, starting gate rides, winner’s circle photos, $1 food and drink specials and fireworks following live racing.

Fireworks at Tioga Downs will be on July 4 and at Vernon Downs on July 5.

On Sunday, there will also be a concert by the Jason Wicks Band, a popular local country music group, during the races at Tioga Downs.

Fans are encouraged to visit the official Back to the Track website (http://backtothetrack.ustrotting.com/) for a full schedule of events and promotions.
