OSWEGO, NY – Longtime DIRT Modified car owner Dick Myers has joined forces with 2012 Oswego Speedway Pathfinder Bank Small Block Super champion Kreig Heroth for the upcoming 2015 season at the ‘Steel Palace.’
Following the announcement of Won4 Racing closing its doors at the conclusion of the 2014 Speedway season, Myers approached Heroth with the plan of building a new Hedger Fabrication Small Block Super for 2015.
“After our family made the decision to try it on our own, we purchased the previously campaigned Won4Racing car with intentions of continuing to run at Oswego,” said Heroth. “After we purchased the car from Doug Soucy, Dick Myers approached us about building a new Hedger chassis and adding it to the stable.”
Heroth, who drove to one feature win at Oswego in 2014, accepted the offer and the chassis is due to be complete in the coming weeks.
“We plan to keep the old car complete as No. 04, as well as have the new car in identical form,” said Heroth. “We’re excited to continue at Oswego with a first class operation and a back-up car, thanks to the support of Dick Myers. We look forward to continuing our quest for a second Pathfinder Bank Small Block Super track championship, as well as chasing the goal of someday competing in the Novelis Supermodified division at Oswego.”
From Frankfort, NY, Myers owned DIRT Modifieds in the 1970s and 1980s for Johnstown, NY, driver Andy Romano, as well as sponsoring the likes of Pat Ward.
During that time as an owner and avid race fan, Myers would often travel to Oswego to watch Supermodified racing, a passion that was rekindled this past season as Myers returned to the ‘Steel Palace’ to help support Heroth.
In 2015, Kreig Heroth Motorsports will move full speed ahead with Myers as a prime team member, as well as several valued sponsors including Little Lukes Childcare, Ontario Orchards, Save-A-Lot Food Stores of Fulton, Fajita Grill, G&G Oil and Fuel, Ray Hedger Fabrication, Fingerlakes Machine, Mojo Photos, and Cooper Custom Canvas.
