OSWEGO, NY – After a long cold winter, race fans and racers alike will finally get the chance to warmup at Oswego Speedway on May 2 with the annual ‘Steel Palace’ open practice session to be conducted from 1-5 p.m.
All divisions competing at Oswego Speedway in 2015 including the Race of Champions Asphalt Modifies Series, the International Supermodified Association, the NEMA Midgets, ATQMRA TQ Midgets and of course the Novelis Supermodifieds and Pathfinder Bank Small Block Supers are welcome to participate in the four-hour long open test session.
Grandstand admission for the open practice will be free with pit admission set at $25. Season pit passes will be honored at the open practice session.
The pit concession stand will be open on May 2 as well as the Tiki Bar under the main grandstand with hot dogs, chips, and cold drinks.
Several race cars will likely be on hand, including the potential of defending Mr. Supermodified David Danzer, piloting his back-up Supermodified with a wing in preparation for the Port City 160 ‘Super Spectacle’ on May 23.
Returning SBS pilot Ray Sand Jr., the son of Supermodified veteran Ray Sand Sr., has also posted via social media that he is ready to make his return to the Speedway on May 2 behind the wheel of the former Brian Sobus SBS.
Last year a total of 22 cars took part in the practice session including seven Novelis Supermodifieds, 13 Pathfinder Bank SBS, and two ISMA Supermodifieds.
