Oswego, NY (February 27, 2015) – Ben Seitz and his number 17-supermodified team are more than pleased with their 2014 accomplishments, and justifiably so. In just five years of their competition together, Seitz and car owner Dick Bien claimed an ISMA driver and owner championship respectively, something many have coveted and few have achieved.
Despite the snow and cold in the Northeast, the team is already looking now look forward to the new season and defending their title.
Said Seitz on his meteoric rise to the top of ISMA, “We had a good season last year. We were consistent and were definitely happy with the results. We didn’t set out in 2014 to necessarily win the championship; it wasn’t locked into our plans. But, then toward the end of the season, we pretty much saw it was in sight and then it became the goal.”
SANDUSKY, Ohio (February 25, 2015) -- The battle for the Midwest Supermodified Association (MSA) title has just been blown wide-open, while the fight for the ISMA Supermodified crown became a bit murkier on Thursday night.
26-year-old Trent Stephens, driver of the No. 19 Kasper Auto Group/Schaeffer’s Oil supermodified for long time owner Steve Stout, has announced that he plans to move on from chasing the MSA championship (which he has won the past four years) and will instead make a run at the 2015 ISMA (International SuperModified Association) championship.
