Last year’s Budweiser International Classic 200 pole sitter Michael Barnes is also the two-time and defending winner of the Turning Stone Resort Casino ‘Favorite Driver’ contest, which continues in 2016.

In its fourth year, the Turning Stone program will once again give fans an opportunity to give something back to their favorite driver at the conclusion of the 2016 racing season.

The Turning Stone Resort Casino ‘Favorite Driver’ contest will again be a weekly fixture at Central New York’s fastest sports facility, Oswego Speedway, beginning on May 7 with the Speedway’s annual open test session to be held from 1-5 p.m.

On the back of all weekly tickets for the 2016 season, fans simply write their favorite driver’s name and bring it to the Turning Stone Resort TS Rewards Desk within five days to  officially enter their favorite driver in the running for a 2017 season pit pass at Oswego Speedway.

The driver with the most votes by September 30 will be declared Oswego Speedway’s Turning Stone Resort Casino ‘Favorite Driver.’

In order to be eligible, a driver must be registered in either the Novelis Supermodified or Pathfinder Bank SBS divisions at Oswego Speedway as viewed on the Speedway’s official website.

Not only do Oswego Speedway drivers have a chance to win big at the end of the season, but fans of the Speedway can also cash in on a weekly basis.

By turning in their favorite driver entry ticket to the Turning Stone Resort Casino TS Rewards Desk, fans will have the chance to win up to $500 in Free Play.

Voting will be collected weekly and displayed at www.oswegospeedway.com for fans to keep track of their favorite driver.

Voting tabulations will also be reported on Oswego Speedway’s social media accounts through Twitter and Facebook.

Last year’s winner of the Turning Stone Resort Casino ‘Favorite Driver’ contest, for the second consecutive year, was Oswego Speedway veteran, Michael Barnes.

Barnes narrowly edged out 2013 Turning Stone Resort Casino ‘Favorite Driver’ Joe Gosek for top honors ahead of fellow Supermodified aces Otto Sitterly, Bob Bond, and Dave Danzer.

Oswego Speedway is proud to welcome back Turning Stone Resort Casino as a fifth year partner with the ‘Steel Palace.’  In 2012, Turning Stone Resort Casino came on board as a race night partner and they again return in 2016 as the title partner of the ‘Favorite Driver’ contest as well as the presenting partner of Oswego Speedway’s heat and feature event victory lane, and the official casino of Oswego Speedway.
