OSWEGO, NY – For the first time in Oswego Kartway’s history, a traveling tour series will officially take on the Bullring when the RMR Outlaw Series comes to the Port City this Saturday.
The Kartway’s normal Friday night championship series will not be in action Friday in order to prepare for the 11-division tour type series to take on the Kartway the following evening.
“The Kartway decided to try something new this season after Rich Murtaugh approached us over the winter,” said Oswego Kartway co-promoter Dan Kapuscinski. “We are hoping that bringing in the RMR Outlaw Series will help us to expose our track and our facility to some new competitors, which will hopefully join us for some more of our weekly shows through the year and especially our year-end Kartway Classic. The weather looks to be perfect and Jim Losurdo will no doubt have the track in top shape.”
Losurdo will serve as the race director on Saturday night with Kapuscinski running the AMB MyLaps in the scoring tower, the same roles they take on each Friday night.
The highlight of the evening’s racing schedule will be the Heavy division, with a guaranteed $500 winner’s prize to be awarded courtesy of Fishel Motorsports. The RMR Outlaw Series Heavy division consists of both Flathead and Animal engines with a weight of 370 pounds. Any competitors with an Animal engine must run a 3-hole .312 Gold plate.
Second through sixth place finishers in Heavy will receive 100% pay back.
Joining Heavy as adult divisions on Saturday will be Sr. Champ, Clone Light, Clone Heavy, Clone Super Heavy, BSP Clone, Light, and Open.
Clone Light, Clone Heavy, and Clone Super Heavy must run a drum clutch but have the option of running the larger pipe. Clone Super Heavy weight is 425 pounds with driver weighing at least 200 pounds.
All clone classes must purchase their fuel from the station directly in front of Oswego Speedway on Route 104. 87 octane will be the required fuel, and this is the same process used for the Kartway’s Classic event.
Junior divisions will consist of Purple plate, Blue plate, and Gold plate.
All junior divisions can compete with a Clone, Flathead, Animal, or LO206 engine.
Visit www.richardmurtaughracing.com for a full break down on weights and plates for those divisions.
Adult divisions in action Saturday night will receive 100% pay back on entries. Junior divisions will receive 25% pay back.
The RMR Outlaw Series is solely responsible for class structure, class rules, tech, and purse payouts.
Pit gates will open for competitors on June 28 beginning at 3:30 p.m. with a driver’s meeting at 5:30 p.m. and hot laps at 6:30 p.m.
All divisions will run time trials, one heat race, and a main event.
Entry fees will be $50 for senior classes, $40 for junior classes, with all those in attendance in the pit area required to purchase a $20 pit pass.
Transponders will be required in order to be scored. Those who do not have their own transponder can rent one from the Kartway for $10.
Spectator admission is $5 per car load.
Kartway events run May through September on most Friday nights, culminating with the Fall Frenzy 200 Championships on September 20.
