Oswego, NY (June 8, 2015) – Several years ago, Ed Shea of Shea Concrete initiated a separate driver point fund, which encompassed the four winged ISMA shows scheduled at Oswego Speedway. A purse of $5,000 was established to be divided up among the top five point getters from those four races. This season that purse will go up to $6,000 for those five drivers and each will receive a check and a trophy after the final point tallies in September.
2015 brings another added incentive for the winged competitors which makes the winner’s prize $6,000 at each Oswego event. Four sponsors – Raeco Metals, owned by Mike Lichty of Innerkip, Ontario, Craig Reed, owner of Reed’s Salvage, Ken Locke, of Locke Crane Service and Cape Cod Aggregates, sponsor of the 2014 championship Seitz-Bien team, have gotten together to sweeten the feature purse by $5,000 at each of the four Oswego ISMA races this season.
Mark Sammut was recipient of the first big bonus given by Mike Lichty and Raeco Metals Inc., when the London, Ontario Driver happily took away a $6,000 check for his spectacular win in the Irish Jack Murphy Memorial 50 on May 23.

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.
