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.

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.
