The ISMA Winged Warriors Make Long Awaited Appearance at “The County”
South Amherst, OH (November 10, 2014) – As the 2015 racing schedule takes shape, L.C.S officials announced that The County will host “ISMA Summercade” on June 26th & 27th. It will mark the first time since 1984 in the tracks history that it will be hosting an ISMA (International Super-Modified Association) event.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to form this relationship with ISMA” said Kevin Bonnema, Owner of Lorain County Speedway. “This partnership would not be possible without the support of the super-modified fan base we have right here in our backyard. Our next step will be to start an extensive search for a title sponsor which will be a necessity for an event of this size. We hope to announce the new sponsor at the start of the 2015 season.”
The announcement makes ISMA the biggest touring series to ever visit Lorain County, as the Winged Warrior’s join the Modifieds, Crate Sprints, Grand Nationals and Chargers on both Friday and Saturday Nights, this will prove to be the event of the year. ISMA is slated to compete for 50 laps on Friday and 100 laps on Saturday.
ISMA President Howie Lane said, “On behalf of ISMA and all the teams, we are very excited to be competing in 2015 at Lorain County Speedway's Summercade. As you know, for most of the teams, it is the first time racing at Lorain County Speedway. I feel that it will be a very fast, competitive race on Friday night and more exciting on Saturday as teams learn from Friday's race and make adjustments to be faster. We are all looking forward to this event in 2015.”
The final 2015 schedule, including additional racing events and related information, will be announced at a later date this winter.
Thompson, CT (Oct. 15, 2017) – The battle for the ISMA championship was to be decided at the World Series of Racing on Sunday and when all the smoke had settled, 2016 ISMA champ Dave Shullick Jr. relinquished that title to Jon McKennedy, but he didn't shy away from taking his third straight World Series ISMA win. While McKennedy and Timmy Jedrzejek fought side for side for a number of laps hoping to win a first ISMA crown, Shullick pulled by leader Chris Perley on lap 16 and proceeded to decimate the field while the aforementioned duo tried to out run each other to win the 2017 championship.
Oswego, NY (October 3, 2017) – As has been the norm for many years now in ISMA competition, the point title will once again be determined at the final race of the season, the World Series of Speedway Racing. And, it is fitting that this venue, that has been the site of over 40 ISMA events over the years, be again where the champion is crowned. This season the top two contenders – Jon McKennedy (P&L Motorsports) and Timmy Jedrzejek (Lane Racing), are each seeking a career first championship. In addition there are some very close races in the top eight spots, which could see some major shuffling in the final standings.

It was Shoe II's second win of the prestigious event as he continued to show his prowess in both winged and non-winged racing.
