BINGHAMTON, NY…The 61st Sunoco Race of Champions Weekend scheduled for July 22nd and 23rd has now gotten even bigger. Race of Champions event owner Andrew Harpell announced recently that the ISMA winged Super Modifieds will now highlight the Friday portion of the RoC Weekend at Oswego Speedway. This will shuffle the originally scheduled Friday events to Sunday. The Saturday schedule will remain intact featuring the Sunoco Race of Champions Modified 200.
The Friday ISMA event will be the first of back to back stops in New York State on the weekend of July 22nd and 23rd. The teams will pack up after the Friday racing at Oswego Speedway and trek over to Mike Perrotte’s popular Airborne Speedway on Saturday. The ISMA races are scheduled to be 50 lappers at both facilities.
Joining the ISMA Super Modifieds on Friday at Oswego Speedway for the RoC Weekend will be the SBS Super Modifieds and Mini Stocks. Racing on Friday evening will get underway at 7:30 p.m. .
RoC owner Andrew Harpell commented, “We have always wanted to give our race fans and teams the biggest and best weekend of racing with the Sunoco Race of Champions at Oswego Speedway.” He added, “We wanted to try and avoid as many conflicts as possible for the dedicated support divisions to this event.” “By moving the Sportsman and Late Models to Sunday it becomes a much better fit for the teams.” “As a race fan myself I couldn’t be more excited about the addition of the ISMA program to make this the biggest racing weekend of the year.”
The 61st running of the Sunoco Race of Champions Modified 200 will take place on the weekend of July 22, 23 and 24 at the historic Oswego Speedway. The 61st edition will be a tribute to the memory of the great Richie Evans who won the event in 1973, ’79 and ’80. Joining the RoC Modifieds on Saturday, will be the Oswego Speedway non-winged Super Modifieds in a 61 lap battle that will also pay tribute to the memory of Evans.
