OSWEGO, NY – A severe thunderstorm, coupled with a line of showers expected to fill the evening, has forced Oswego Speedway officials to cancel tonight’s racing program which was scheduled to feature Twin 20 Pathfinder Bank SBS features and a 50-lap Novelis Supermodified main presented by CNY CPR and www.OswegoCountyToday.com.
There will not be a make-up date for tonight’s events.
With the cancellation, the 2016 regular season will now come to a close next Saturday, August 20 with the season long battle for Oswego Speedway’s track championships on the line.
The final event of the regular season will feature a driver autograph session at 5:15 p.m. as well as the Teal Palace Ovarian Cancer Awareness drive, all for only $5 adult general admission with kids 16 and under still admitted free with a paid adult.
Heading into the regular season finale Dave Gruel, Michael Barnes, Mike Muldoon, and Otto Sitterly will be locked in a four way battle for the 2016 Oswego Speedway Novelis Supermodified track championship.
Gruel currently holds a 12.5-point edge on Barnes in the race for the championship with Muldoon 27.5 points back and Sitterly sitting 31 points shy of the top spot.
Gruel, Barnes, and Muldoon are each searching for their first career Oswego Supermodified track title, while Sitterly is seeking his record breaking eighth Supermodified title crown.
Jeff Abold sits fifth in the standings 58.5 points behind Gruel with Pat Lavery, Dave Danzer, Kody Graham, Aric Iosue, and Brandon Bellinger in the top ten spots.
On the SBS side of the pit area Dave Cliff will be able to breathe a bit easier heading into next weekend as he will carry a 47-point lead into the track championship finale on August 20 over Jack Patrick.
The 2010 SBS track champion, Cliff will still have to hit all of his marks next Saturday over a tough field of trailing championship contenders including Patrick, Mike Bond, Anthony Losurdo, and Mike Bruce if he hopes to be a two-time Speedway champion.
Next Saturday’s action at Oswego Speedway will feature a 50-lap Novelis Supermodified main event as well as 30-lap Pathfinder Bank SBS feature presented by U-Pull U-Save Auto Parts and Bosco’s Food Market.
Adult general admission will be set at only $5.
