OSWEGO, NY – Oswego Kartway’s first laps of feature racing action took place on May 23 presented by DS Humphreys. Unfortunately, only four divisions completed their main events due to a heavy rain shower that passed over the Kartway at the beginning of the Stock Light feature.
The seven main events that were not completed will be made up over the course of the next two weeks at the Kartway.
Stock Light, Clone Heavy, and Stock 425 will complete their 30-lap main events before the racing action begins on May 30.
Clone Light, Clone 425, BSP Clone, and Champ/Open will complete their 30-lap main events before the racing action begins on June 6.
All junior classes were able to complete their shows on May 23 with the Trump brothers, Dylan and Tyler, showing the fast way around the Bull Ring.
Dylan Trump drove his No. 28 machine to victory in Jr. Blue Clone last Friday in a great battle over Britney Baum and a hard charging Seth Perrin.
Perrin was the early race leader in Jr. Blue, but spun in the second corner surrendering the lead and restarting in the back of the pack. After the restart Perrin was able to charge back to third, but did not have enough to chase down and pass both Trump and Baum at the front.
Sean Simmons and Robert Philips completed the top five positions in Jr. Blue Clone.
Dylan’s brother, Tyler Trump, proved to be the driver to beat in Sr. Blue Clone over defending Junior Driver of the Year Josh Ostrander. Trump and Ostrander put on a great show at the front of the field, after each won their qualifying heat races.
Nick Snyder, son of International Classic champion Tim Snyder, took third in Sr. Blue ahead of Kyle Valley and Seth Baum.
Other feature winners on Friday included Logan Abbott in Jr. Green Clone and Madison Baum in Jr. Purple Clone.
