The owner of Champion Speedway in Owego, 37 year old Jason Bonsignore of Rochester, is charged with over two dozen counts of offering a false instrument for filing under the New York State Penal Law.

Bonsignore is also charged with four counts each of failure to secure compensation for employees and fraudulent practice under the New York State Workers Compensation Law.  All the charges are felonies.

Bonsignore was arraigned in the Town of Owego Court and released on his own recognizance.
