Defends his 2013 win on first night of Canadian Swing
DELAWARE, ONT, CANADA (August 15, 2014) - It is a guarantee that Ben Seitz had this date circled on his calendar when the 2014 ISMA Super Modified Series schedule was announced. After winning at Delaware Speedway in Delaware, Ontario in 2013, he was eager to get back and repeat. He did just that tonight.
Seitz took the lead from Jeff Locke on lap 32 and led all the way to the checkered flag to win the 75-lap feature at the half-mile oval.
"Two years in a row," Seitz said in victory lane. "The car was the same as it was last year. The car wasn't that fast in practice and it wasn't fast in the heat race. But we thought we had a good feature package. We stuck with it and used our notes from last year, and it worked.
"Jeff (Locke) was getting loose and we were able to get under him. The rest was history."
Ryan Coniam took the lead at the green flag but Locke got by him on lap 5. Locke held on to the top spot until Seitz, who started third, got by him and didn't look back.
Rob Summers started fourth and came through with a second place finish.
"At one point I thought I was going to have something for him and I started getting loose, then he took off," Summers said. "We got another second place. We have had a consistent car every week and I can't thank my crew enough."
Dave Shullick Jr. was fast all day in practice and won his heat race. He started tenth, but the best he could race up to was a third place finish.
"We were good in three and four and just didn't have enough to get by Summers off off of turn two," Shullick said after the race. "He would pull me off of two and I would catch him in three. It is hard to pass here. You have to have a really good car to make those passes. I was really good off of turn four and just couldn't get enough in there to make the move."
Mike Lichty finished fourth with Mark Sammut finishing fifth. Locke would come home with a sixth place finish.
Jon McKennedy, Craig Rayvals, Dan Bowes and Moe Lilije round out the top ten.
The ISMA Super Modifieds will continue their Canadian tour on Sunday, August 17 when they travel to Sunset Speedway in Innisfil, Ontario, Canada.

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.
