OSWEGO, NY – Michael Barnes and his Syrell Racing Novelis Supermodified, winners of Oswego Speedway’s 66th annual opening night main event on May 14, will be attending the MyNovelis Family Day celebration on Saturday, June 11, beginning at noon, to be held at Oswego’s Novelis plant on County Route 1A.
The event, which runs from noon – 4 p.m., will play host to a series of family fun, games, and entertainment for all ages for Novelis employees and their immediate families.
Part of that fun and entertainment will be the opportunity to be up close and personal with a 900-horsepower Supermodified and its pilot, the Speedway’s two-time and defending ‘Favorite Driver.’
Barnes currently rides second in the Novelis Supermodified driver standings behind seven-time Speedway champion Otto Sitterly.
Just nine markers out of the championship lead, Barnes has one feature win and one heat race win already this season with two top five main event runs in three features so far in 2016.
Entering their 12th season as the title sponsor of the Novelis Supermodified division at Oswego Speedway, this Saturday serves as a tremendous opportunity for Novelis employees and their families to learn more about an integral part of Oswego history and the local community.
After a week off from competition, Oswego Speedway will also be back to racing this Saturday for the Spring Championship presented by C’s Beverage Center and Century 21 Galloway Realty featuring the first ever ‘6-Pack the Back’ promotion.
