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.

Epping, NH (September 9, 2017) – Dave Shullick Jr., coming off his first Oswego Speedway Classic win on Sunday, September 3, strapped the wing back on his Bodnar 95 and proceeded to run a calculated race to win the 52nd running of the Star Classic on September 9, chasing down and passing Jon McKennedy who had led much of the 150 lap distance. It was Shoe II's second win of the prestigious event as he continued to show his prowess in both winged and non-winged racing.
Oswego, NY (September 2, 2017) – Two of the winningest drivers in Oswego Speedway winged racing, Mike Lichty and Chris Perley, put on the proverbial classic battle for the 24th annual Super Nationals win on Saturday night. By virtue of qualifying and handicapping, Perley and Lichty sat on the front row and it was Lichty who won the war for the lead as the pair went side by side on the green flag lap. It was Lichty's sixth Oswego winged win and the second in the ISMA Super Nationals.
Delaware, Ont., Canada (Aug. 19, 2017) - They say good things come to those who wait and for London, Ontario's Mark Sammut that wait for a feature win at Delaware was 21 years in the making. Sammut, who calls Delaware Speedway his home track, had raced many times at the half-mile oval over his long career, but had never won a supermodified feature there. He'd come close, but Saturday night he nailed it, picking up his 6th career ISMA win but first victory at Delaware, which was also a very lucrative one that carried a $10,000 first place prize, sponsored by Corr/Pak Merchandising, Arctic Snowplows, Murray's Transmission and PATCO Transportation.
