Oswego, NY (May 13, 2015) – It was announced today that the 2-event ISMA Harvey Lennox Memorial Series at Delaware Speedway, near London, Ontario, will have an extra incentive. The following companies, Patco Transportation, Murray’s Transmission and Arctic Snowplows have gotten together to add an extra $3500 to create a driver’s point fund.
The three highest drivers competing at both shows will be awarded $2000 (1st), $1,000 (2nd) and $500 (3rd) after a point tally from both Delaware shows. The ISMA opener at Delaware Speedway takes place this Friday, May 15 with a May 16 rain date and the second race of the series is on August 21 with an August 22nd rain date.
Patco Transportation, of course, is a name well known to the ISMA competitors and fans as owner Brad Lichty fields 3 potent supermodifieds in the series. Since 1981, Patco Transportation has been on the road providing their clients with quality, dependable LTL and Truckload services throughout North America.
Patco Transportation is a family owned and operated business, founded by a team of logistic specialists with over a century of experience. They are an internationally based, Canadian and U.S. Bonded Carrier, Hazardous, F.A.S.T., and Ctpat approved carrier with a 50,000 sq. ft. facility based centrally in Ayr, On. They also have a second 15,000 sq.ft. location in Dalton, Ga. Both locations offer cross docking, warehousing and distribution, storage trailers, or whatever individual freight needs may be.
Murray Transmission is also a household name in the ISMA supermodified organization. Four-time ISMA feature winner Mark Sammut, co-owner of Murray’s Transmission, would like nothing better than to add at least one of the two-race Harvey Lennox Series events to his win total. Mark’s father Tony worked on Harvey Lennox's London Concrete No. 10 in the early days. And it was through this association; Mark’s racing career got started. He started racing go-karts at nine-years-old. At 17, he moved to ¾ midgets and eventually this all led to the supermodifieds. Today, Sammut son-and-dad still work side-by-side – on the ISMA trail and as partners in Murray's Transmission on York St.
The third contributor to the Lennox Memorial Series Driver point fund is Arctic Snowplows. The Canadian-based Arctic Snowplows, out of London, Ontario manufacture one of the highest quality snowplows in the business. Rick Lennox, manager of Arctic Snowplows is an avid supermodified fan and rightly so, as he is the son of Harvey Lennox who the series honors.

The much-anticipated ISMA opener at Monadnock Speedway, which was slated for May 19, met with foul weather, which turned out to be the norm in the east in that month. So with two races in the books at Delaware and Lancaster Speedways, the ISMA contingent will try again next Saturday.
Lancaster, NY (June 2, 2018) – Canadian Mark Sammut has been an ISMA stalwart for 21 years, a congenial competitor who has weathered the up and down nature of racing. Last August he took his biggest win, a $10,000 payday at what he calls his home track, Delaware Speedway, to the approval of a huge throng of fans.
Saturday night at Lancaster Speedway, he picked up his seventh-career ISMA win, to the cheers of many Buffalo area fans who had seen him run and win years ago in his Can-Am midget. He quipped in victory lane when he spoke of that midget win, that he wasn't buying a dragster to win in another division at Lancaster! But he did mention that the car he was driving was 21 years old and it has served him well. The new car that had been debuted last year, has gone back to the drawing board.
Delaware, ONTARIO (June 1, 2018) – Kyle Edwards of Bartlett, Tennessee picked a good time to win his first ever ISMA feature on Friday night as the 50 lapper was the first leg of the Harvey Lennox Memorial Tammy Ten Bonus Fund. Thanks to Arctic Equipment, Corr/Pak Merchandising, Murray's Transmission and Patco Transportation, an extra $7000 bonus payout will go to the top five ISMA car owners based on points from this Delaware race, the Jukasa July event and the second August Delaware race.
