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.

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.
