Mother Nature 3, Classic Weekend 0

Mother Nature has delivered another gut-wrenching blow to Oswego Speedway’s Classic Weekend on Sunday.  After, both Friday and Saturday night’s events were axed due to persistent rains, the call was made to postpone Sunday’s efforts to Monday as well. This forces SBS Classic, ISMA Supernationals and International Classic to all be held on Labor Day, Monday. At 2 p.m. on Sunday, the rains had stopped. Efforts to dry the track began, and drivers and teams were asked to be at the speedway no later than 4 p.m. However, just an hour later, it was announced that the show was being moved to Monday as more showers were forecasted to hit the area by early evening. Showers had been forecasted to fall on the Port City all day.

Classic Weekend will try to both even the score and come out on top on Monday with the help of a forecasted a sunny 72-degree day. Monday’s schedule will look similar to that of how Sunday’s schedule was changed after Saturday night’s rain out. Monday’s schedule tentatively has pit gates opening at 7 a.m. and grandstands opening at 8:30 a.m. More information and details can be seen on Oswego Speedway’s website –

As race fans, teams and track staff watched radar screens, dazzled with scenarios and shared in one another’s general weather-related frustrations, some found other ways to pass the time.
