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.

Oswego, NY (July 19, 2017) - On July 15, the ISMA Board of Directions held a morning meeting at Jennerstown Speedway to discuss the race that had been scheduled at New London-Waterford Speedbowl. The decision had been made originally to wait and see how the opening of that Connecticut oval was being affected by events that had transpired there earlier in the year.
Jennerstown, PA (July 15, 2017) - At the beginning of the 2017 ISMA race season, P&L Motorsports had found the new driver they had been looking for to run the Lee and Pam Vinal 21. The Vinals had campaigned a car on the ISMA circuit for over four years with several drivers, but had not picked up that elusive first win.
Chelmsford, Mass driver Jon McKennedy, who did not have a potential super ride for this year, had been the one asked to drive the car full-time in 2017. In a racing career that had spanned 20 years, Jon had competed in the winged supermodifieds for a number of years but only one or two were full-time seasons. The talented driver had built up an impressive resume in the asphalt modified divisions in New England with numerous wins and multi-championships to his credit. Along the way he had also accumulated seven ISMA feature wins, jumping into a competitive car on occasion when available and usually having success.
Oswego, NY (July 3, 2017) – In 2016 the ISMA lightning fast supers returned to the Laurel Mountains of Pennsylvania to an old haunt Jennerstown Speedway after a nine-year hiatus. Sixteen previous appearances had been made at that .522-mile oval over a span of years that ranged from 1988 to 2007. The 2016 return was a much-anticipated and successful one. This year’s July 15 visit should be one not to miss as the drivers and teams have a new basis to work from.
