Gosek, Ordway, and Muldoon are past champions of the Budweiser International Classic.

Gosek, a three-time champion of the 200, is also a two-time Oswego Speedway track champion and has scored four top five finishes at the Speedway this season in his patented No. 00 machine.

Ordway, the winner of the 2003 International Classic, was a Speedway track champion in 1991 and is known as Mr. Supermodified, with six title victories in the $10,000 to win special.

Muldoon, who drove to victory in the 1995 edition of the International Classic, won three consecutive track titles from 1997-1999 and is a two-time winner of the Mr. Supermodified.  This year’s Ride with the Legends will be Muldoon’s first drive in the Canale Insurance & Accounting 2-Seat Supermodified.

Recently inducted into the Speedway’s Hall of Fame, Shullick has five career Speedway victories including a win in the famed Port City classic. Shullick was known far and wide as a yearly threat for the International Classic title with eight top five finishes in the 200-lap grind.

Ritskes, a former weekly driver of the Canale Insurance & Accounting 2-Seat Supermodified, will join the Legend ranks this year, and like Shullick was a constant threat for Classic victory. During his driving tenure, Ritskes scored five top five finishes in the 200, including a near flag to flag triumph in the year 2000.
