Oswego Speedway, ISMA Supermodified Opening Weekend Washed Out


OSWEGO, NY – Despite every effort possible, Oswego Speedway’s 64th annual Opening Night celebration presented by Gater Racing News has been canceled due to heavy rain showers.

The posted rain date of Sunday has also been canceled due to the pending forecast which calls for more rain, cold, and windy conditions.

Hot laps for ISMA Supermodifieds and Pathfinder Bank Small Block Supers were completed on Saturday afternoon.

However, as Small Block Super time trials hit the Speedway, scattered rain drops developed resulting in an evening long battle to try and regain the Speedway racing surface.

The ISMA Supermodifieds will next return for their next scheduled event at the Speedway on June 7, which will serve as the opening round of the ‘Steel Palace’ ISMA Super Series.

The Pathfinder Bank Small Block Super division will now open their Road to the Championship on Saturday, May 10 along with the Novelis Supermodifieds with the 53rd annual Novelis Supermodified Kick-Off event presented by Planet Fitness and Mitchell’s Speedway Press.

Grandstand rain checks from Saturday’s event will be honored at the Speedway on either May 24 or June 7.

Those with a grandstand pass from May 3 are asked to report to the ticket window on either May 24 or June 7, present their ticket at the window, and the ticket will be exchanged for an entry pass to either of those two events.

Pit passes will be honored in a similar fashion.

Fans in the pit area, not associated with a race team, also have the option of redeeming their May 3 pit pass for either May 24 or June 7.

In order for your pit pass to be honored you must present your pit ticket from May 3 as well as the coinciding wristband.  There will be no exceptions in this policy.

If a raincheck is returned without a wristband, or vice versa, the pit pass redemption will not be honored.

Those with Pathfinder Bank Small Block Super teams must use their pit pass rain checks on May 24.  In order for a rain check to be honored it must be presented along with the coinciding pit wristband.  There will be no exceptions on this policy.  If a raincheck is returned without a wristband, or vice versa, the pit pass redemption will not be honored.

ISMA Supermodified teams will be able to redeem their pit passes on June 7.  In order for a raincheck to be honored it must be presented along with the coinciding wristband.  There will be no exceptions in this policy.

If a raincheck is returned without a wristband, or vice versa, the pit pass redemption will not be honored.

Saturday night marked the first time that Oswego Speedway has lost an event since the Torrese family took over ownership in 2011.

Oswego Speedway’s opening event will now shift to May 10 with the 53rd annual Novelis Supermodified Kick-Off presented by Planet Fitness and Mitchell’s Speedway Press featuring a 50-lap Novelis Supermodified main and a 30-lap Pathfinder Bank Small Block Super feature.

The May 10 racing schedule will follow May 3 with pit gates opening at 1:30 p.m., hot laps and grandstand gates opening at 3 p.m., time trials at 5 p.m. and the first heat race at 6:30 p.m.
