OSWEGO, NY – For the first time the New York Dirt Kart Series will make a stop at the Oswego Kartway Bullring this Saturday, July 30.
The New York State travelling series, which has already made stops at Can-Am Speedway, Allegany Memorial Speedway, and Caroga Creek Raceway, features a 12 division race program with five premier PRO racing divisions.
Those PRO divisions which include Pro Blue Clone, Pro Purple Clone, Semi-Pro Clone, Pro Medium Clone, and Pro Heavy Clone will race for $4,200 in posted cash awards presented by Slack Karts, Tom’s Masonry & Concrete, Keister’s Karting Products, Atomic Signworks, and Tim Fishel Motorsports.
The combination of NYDKS regulars with Oswego Kartway’s weekly runners should make for a well-attended and action packed event.

The Kartway’s best will go up against top flight travelers including Brad Duhow, Hannah Weltzer, Pete Palmieri, Blake Matjoulis, Josh Hansen, Jonathan Reid, and Mike Jeffery.
While the adult action is fast and furious on the NYDKS, the junior action is just as exciting.
Leading the youth pack of racers will be Oswego regulars Tyler Emmons, Logan Crisafulli, Tanner Emmons, Jake Holmes and David Hackett Jr.
Combine the local aces with invaders such as Justice Mayo, James Donaldson, Dalton Slack, and Tanner Krist and you have a star studded lineup for junior action at the Bullring this Saturday.
