OSWEGO, NY – Oswego Speedway’s 65th Anniversary, $5 special will be a weekend affair with the Supermodified/SBS Driver Challenge now taking place Friday night at Oswego Kartway, located directly behind the Speedway.
No less than 10 Oswego Speedway drivers are scheduled to take part in the exhibition race, that will see Supermodified and SBS pilots take each other on in the same karts that compete weekly at the Bullring.
Michael Barnes, Joe Gosek, Otto Sitterly, Dave Danzer, Dave Cliff, Tim Devendorf, Stephen Gioia III, Jeremy Pitcher, Mike Bruce, and Brian Sobus are all scheduled to take part on Friday, which will see racing action begin at 7:30 p.m.
The Speedway drivers will be divided into two separate heat races, with their finishing order determining the starting line-up for their 15-lap main that will kick off feature action on Friday.
Admission to the Kartway’s spectator area is only $5 per carload, with pit admission available for $10.
A full concession area and bleacher seating within the pit area are also available.
The pre-race festivities will continue on Saturday morning with the annual Oswego Speedway Old-Timers Reunion at 10 a.m. as well as a special Bentley Warren book signing in the Speedway’s Tiki Bar from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Warren will be taking time to sign copies of his book “Wicked Fast: Racing through Life with Bentley Warren” as well as other autographs just prior to Novelis Supermodified heat racing taking to the Speedway at 6:30 p.m.
For ticket information on the Old-Timers Reunion contact Jim Liccardi at (315) 342-5149. Tickets may be ordered ahead of time, with payment made at the door.
The reunion itself will include a full chicken bbq dinner with chef salad, salt potatoes, baked beans, macaroni salad, dinner rolls, dessert and non-alcoholic beverages.
Tickets for the reunion and dinner are $12, which also includes a discount toward pit admission for the Speedway’s action later that night.
Following Saturday night’s racing, the Speedway welcomes all fans to the pit area for a post-race party as well as a video of the night’s race and other special films on a newly constructed 8×16 projector board which will be located on top of the Speedway concession stand.
Oswego Speedway’s Novelis Supermodifieds will contend in a 45-lap main event following the reunion, as they did for several years at the ‘Steel Palace’, along with heat racing as well as the famous Semi-Finals, which haven’t been run regularly since the early 1990s.
The Pathfinder Bank Small Block Supers will join the Supermodifieds for a 30-lap feature on August 8, followed by an infield pit party at the conclusion of the racing action.
