Mansfield, OH – After severe thunderstorms that eventually spawned some tornadic action in the area Saturday, hit the Mansfield Motorsports Speedway, it was determined at about 10 pm that the ISMA racing had to be postponed. Only warm-ups were finished by the ISMA Lucas Oil-Helping Hands of America Super Series before the storms came. As no racing got underway, a complete program will be run on Saturday October 1 at Mansfield. Friday's 40-lapper was run without a problem on Friday with Chris Perley getting the win.
Times will be announced in the near future. All competitors, crews etc. who have wrist bands must keep them for the October show. Check the ISMA website or www.mansfield-speedway.com for further information. This weekend is also when the MSA Cavalcade was to take place so this should be a good one for supermodified fans.
Without much down time, ISMA heads for Lee USA Speedway this Friday August 19 for a 75 lapper at that 3/8's mile and then on Saturday, they are in Oxford Plains for a 75 lapper at that Maine oval.
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.
