OSWEGO, NY – The first driver not to qualify for the 58th annual Budweiser International Classic 200 for Novelis Supermodifieds at Oswego Speedway, will walk out of the ‘Steel Palace’ with a nice pay day thanks to the Speedway as well as Doug and Sherry Heveron.
It was announced in the spring that the Speedway would provide a guaranteed $500 to any Supermodified starting the Bud Light B-Main on August 31 that does not qualify for the International Classic.
This week, it was announced that Doug and Sherry Heveron will also post a $500 bonus to the Classic bubble car, in memory of Tom and Gail Heveron, raising the prize money awarded to the first non-qualifier to a sizable $1,000.
As the entry list for the this year’s running of the Budweiser International Classic continues to grow, heat racing and an exciting Bud Light B-Main appear to be on the horizon as drivers look to qualify for one of the 34 spots open in the 58th annual 200 lap Classic.
