Lorain, OH (June 27, 2015) -- The second day of the International Supermodified Association (ISMA) Series event at Lorain County Speedway, scheduled for Saturday, June 27th has been cancelled due to inclement weather forecasts.
Based on a forecast of 100% thunderstorms and a flood watch until Sunday, ISMA Officials and Lorain County Speedway have jointly determined that it is in the best interest for everyone to call the event rather than ignore the risk and forecast of bad weather. “Our goal is to deliver fans top notch racing entertainment and a sensible run event,” said Kevin Bonnema, owner of Lorain County Speedway. “Whenever possible, we try to avoid pointless and unnecessary down time and travel costs for both our race teams and valued fans.”
“This decision, while difficult and disappointing, is our sincere best effort to do the right thing for everyone involved. One of our most promising events and impressive supermodified car counts to date had committed to this event.
ISMA and Lorain County Speedway are working to see if a rain date can be worked out. The rescheduled date for the Lorain County Speedway Dave & Buster’s ISMA Summercade will be announced in the near future. Tickets purchased in advance will be honored for the rain date, should one be established. If the race is not rescheduled, ticket purchasers will have 2 options;
(1) Tickets will be good for any of the remaining dates on the 2015 Lorain County Speedway schedule at its face value (if there is a difference, a refund of the difference or the additional admission fee will be charged, whichever applies);
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.
