Pat Lavery, Bob Bond Lead Early Bud Classic Week Testing at Oswego Speedway


OSWEGO, NY – A handful of Novelis Supermodifieds have taken laps at Oswego Speedway since last Friday in anticipation of this Friday’s CNY Chevy Dealers Qualifying Night at Budweiser International Classic Weekend with Pat Lavery and defending Classic champion Bob Bond so far leading the speed charts.

Pat Lavery has so far turned the quickest time of Bud Classic Week testing at Oswego Speedway.

Lavery leads the way as of Tuesday evening, driving the Graham Racing No. 12 Xtreme Supermodified with a lap of 16.403 seconds.

Lavery, a three-time pole sitter for the Budweiser International Classic 200 and a two-time feature winner this season, is one of the favorites for Classic pole on Friday night.

Defending Classic champion Bond, in the Four Sevens Motorsports No. 47, clicked off a lap of 16.595 seconds to land the second fastest time of the week to this point.

Each tried time trial simulation runs before focusing on slower full tank runs for Sunday’s 200-lapper.

The Supermodifieds of Todd Stowell, Brian Sobus, and Lou LeVea Jr. have also been on track this week. None of the three found the 16-second bracket.

Shawn Muldoon fired his No. 1 machine on Tuesday and Lavery took laps on Monday in the Graham Racing No. 92 to shake it down for NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour veteran Ron Silk.

Former SBS Classic champion Russ Brown was also on hand Tuesday in the Hedger Fabrication No. 13, as he turned the fastest SBS lap of the week at 18.848 seconds.

The remaining Classic Week testing schedule is as follows with the Supermodifieds of Bob Magner and Tim Jedrzejek scheduled for Wednesday from 4-8 p.m. with the SBS machines of Jason Simmons and Tyler Thompson.

On Thursday Super racers Ray Graham, Ron Silk, Bobby Santos, Joey Moriarty, Ryan Litt, and Chris Perley are all scheduled from 4-8 p.m. with SBS racers Bryan and Brad Haynes.

Three-day tickets for Budweiser Classic Weekend are available for as low as $90 including Friday night’s CNY Chevy Dealers Qualifying Night, Bud Light ‘Super Saturday’ featuring the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and the ISMA Supermodifieds, as well as Budweiser ‘Classic Sunday’ with the 25th Bud Light SBS Classic and the 60th Budweiser International Classic 200.
