OSWEGO, NY – Ten time Indy 500 veteran and 1997 Oswego Speedway International Classic winner Davey Hamilton met several race fans Friday afternoon at Burritt Motors.
Hamilton was in town to help kick off the 24th annual â€œ$10,000 to Winâ€ this weekend at Oswego Speedway.
The Jamestown, Indiana, has run 52 Indy car races in his career with eight top three finishes.
Hamilton has competed in the prestigious International Classic at Oswego for four different car owners.
He was elected into the Oswego Speedway â€œHall of Fameâ€ in 2005.
Hamilton will compete for car owner John Nicotra as the teammate to current Novelis Supermodified Track Champion, Otto Sitterly.
“I think this is the first time I’ve run in this race,” he said. “This is a good warmup for the Classic, though.”
Burritt Motors not only supplies the â€œOfficial Pace Truckâ€ for the Oswego Speedway but has one of the longest running sponsorships in the 60-year history of the track.
The 24th annual â€œMr. Novelis Supermodifiedâ€ feature will be joined by the 19th annual â€œMr. PathFinder Bank Small Block Superâ€ race and the 3rd annual â€œMs. Hoosier Mamaâ€ SBS powder puff race for the ladies on Saturday night.
