Verona, NY (Nov. 19, 2016)– The elegant Turning Stone Casino was once again the site of the annual ISMA awards banquet which honored the 2016 champion car owner Jim Bodnar, 2016 champion driver Dave Shullick Jr. and the rest of the top 15 point getters. It was the second consecutive year that the Ohio-based Bodnar-Shullick team took the title, battling the Reed-Lichty team throughout the year. The top team was rewarded with a trophy and jacket in addition to the winner's check.
Thompson, Conn. (Oct. 16, 2016) - The run for the 2016 ISMA championship was one of ups and downs for the two main contenders, Dave Shullick Jr. and Mike Lichty. It seemed when one did well, the other would not at almost all of the events throughout the schedule. They took turns at the top of the standings and that trend continued to the season finale at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park World Series of Racing this past weekend.
Oswego, NY (October 5, 2016) - The 2016 points chase has been between two ISMA drivers, who have basically held onto the top spot of the ISMA point standings all season despite some strange twists of fate.

A quick review of the season shows how crazy this battle has been, which will be decided October 14-15-16 at Connecticut's Thompson Speedway during the 2016 World Series of Racing.
