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);
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.
