Story By: CAMDEN PROUD / PROUD MOTORSPORTS – OSWEGO, NY – O’Connors Main Street Pub, an authentic Irish bar and grill located in Fair Haven, N.Y. has signed on as the latest partner backing Camden Proud’s 2018 championship campaign behind the wheel of the Proud Motorsports, Step One Creative No. 54 Small Block Supermodified.
A Fair Haven hot spot, O’Connor’s family-friendly environment offers ‘Nothin’ But A Good Time’ for all guests. Under new ownership lead by Oswego native Brandon Lagoe in 2018, O’Connors is continuing several of its traditions including their famous Reuben Sandwich, ‘Friday Night Fish Fry,’ legendary ‘Destroyer Burgers,’ chicken wings, and the pub’s popular lightly breaded fresh calamari.
Offering an at home feel, you can grab a beer, or relax with a glass of fine wine or cold pint of ale on O’Connor’s outdoor patio in the summer, which comes alive with musical entertainment on the weekends. You can also listen to your favorite tunes, or catch all of your teams on the pub’s flat screen televisions.
Guinness is on tap all of the time as part of O’Connors’ featured brews which include Stella Artois, Smithwicks Irish Ale, Yuengling, Ol’ Black n’ Tan, Bud Light, and Shock Top. The Irish Haven Upper Deck at O’Connors is also available for rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, luncheons, meetings, birthdays, and more.
“We are very excited about the opportunity we have to welcome O’Connors Main Street Pub to our Proud Motorsports family,” said Camden Proud. “Brandon (Lagoe) has supported us for several years and I couldn’t resist but reach out when I heard about his new endeavor at O’Connors. He will do a fantastic job. We are looking forward to a fun partnership, some car appearances, and certainly spending a lot of our offseason time at the pub. I encourage everyone to head out to Fair Haven to give it a try.”
O’Connors Main Street Pub will hit the track with the Proud No. 54 for the first time at Open Practice on Saturday, May 19 before coming back for Opening Day on Saturday, May 26th which will see the lid lifter Jim Shampine and Tony White Memorial events for the Supermodifieds and SBS featuring Jim Shampine Memorial ‘Twin 50’s’ for the Supers.
