OSWEGO, NY – After missing action one week ago due to weather, Oswego Kartway will return to green flag racing this Friday night with extra distance races on tap for the second point event of the season.
All main events will run five extra laps in honor of the Memorial Day Weekend, which is known far and wide as one of the biggest racing weekends in the world with the Indianapolis 500, Monaco Grand Prix, Coca-Cola 600 and the ‘Super Spectacle’ at Oswego Speedway all taking place this weekend.
Drivers in as many as 15 different divisions of racing are expected to again turn out on May 22.
Young racers aged 5-15 will be separated between the junior divisions at the Kartway including Jr. Green Clone (5-7), Sr. Green Clone (7-9), Jr. Purple Clone (9-11), Jr. Blue Clone (10-12), and Sr. Blue Clone (12-15).
Those drivers ages 15 and up will compete in either Stock Light, Stock Heavy, Stock 425, Clone Light, Clone Medium, Clone Heavy, Clone 425, BSP Clone, Open, and Champ Kart.
Pit gates will open for competitors beginning at 4:30 p.m.

Those with wristbands from the Kartway’s rained out event on May 15, will be able to exchange those for pit admission or entries on Friday.
Friday night’s racing program will see heat race lineups determined by point handicap, with feature lineups starting straight up from heat race finishes.
