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.

Verona, NY – The Turning Stone Casino in Verona, NY was once again the site of the International SuperModified Association's season-ending awards Banquet. Many awards were handed out to the 2017 owner and driver champions, the top point getters for the season, and the Triple Crown Series winners. In addition the special awards as voted on by the membership, were presented.
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.
