The one-hour broadcast, featuring the world’s most unique open-wheel short track racecars and the richest race in the world of Supermodified racing, will display 34 of the best open-wheel drivers in the country battling for 200-laps and a total purse of more than $100,000.

The 59th annual International Classic broadcast will be led in the analyst’s booth by motorsports broadcasting veterans Ralph Sheheen and Derek Pernesiglio.

Oswego Speedway public relations director and former Novelis Supermodified driver Dan Kapuscinski, who finished 5th in the 2006 edition of the International Classic, will provide insight and reports from pit lane.

“The Classic at Oswego is one of the richest traditions in open-wheel racing,” said Kapuscinski. “Often referred to as the Indianapolis 500 of short track racing, drivers like Bentley Warren, Joe Gosek, Davey Hamilton, Sam Sessions, and Gordon Johncock all took on Oswego’s Classic before heading to the Brickyard. There is no race in the world quite like the Classic, and we are pleased to again bring this exciting event to a national audience with everyone from Suzuki presents Speed Sport and MAVTV.”

Top Supermodified racers Michael Barnes and Dave Danzer will lead the International Classic field to the green in Thursday night’s broadcast after time trialing on the front row of the 200 ahead of former Classic champions and Supermodified veterans Otto Sitterly, Bob Bond, Tim Snyder, Hamilton, and Gosek.
