JANUARY 8, 2021 - The International Super Modified Association has released a tentative 2021 schedule that includes 11 exciting winged, big-block supermodified race dates at 10 speedways across the Northeast, Ohio and Ontario, Canada.
With releasing the schedule in January 2021, ISMA officers hope this gives race teams plenty of time to make preparations as we all keep an eye on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that continues to grip the United States and the rest of the world.
If all goes according to plan, ISMA will begin 2021 racing Wednesday, June 9 with a second attempt at a special mid-week non-points event at Seekonk Speedway in Massachusetts. The ISMA supers will join the NEMA midgets for their running of the Boston Louie Memorial plus the NEMA Lites division.
Points racing will kick off later in the month on Saturday, June 26 at Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, N.H. A rain-date for the 75-lap show has been established for Sunday, June 27.
July is the busiest month on the ISMA calendar with four races on the slate. The month will open with the series' only scheduled trip north of the border on Saturday, July 10 at the beautiful Jukasa Motor Speedway in Hagersville, Ontario, Canada. After a week off, one of the biggest events of the year takes place at Ohio's Sandusky Speedway for the annal Hy-Miler Nationals weekend July 23-24. As always, Friday night will feature the ISMA Fast 40 with the weekend concluding Saturday with the Hy-Miler Nationals 100.
Teams won't get a chance to rest after the Hy-Miler as the very next weekend the tour heads to the legendary Home of the Supermodifieds, Oswego Speedway in Oswego, N.Y. The Saturday, July 31 affair will feature the return of the KING OF WINGS which also serves as the Jack Murphy Memorial in honor of the longtime supermodified racer and ISMA official.
A third straight week of racing will open August with the annual Ollie Silva Memorial 75 Friday, August 6 at New Hampshire's Lee USA Speedway. Teams will then get a weekend off before returning to the Granite State for ISMA's first-ever attempt at the one-third-mile Claremont Motorsports Park in Claremont, N.H.
The series then has two weekends off which will likely include many of the ISMA racers competing at Oswego during International Classic Weekend September 3-5. Teams that compete in the Classic 200 will then face another short turnaround with the ninth event on the 2021 calendar set for Saturday, September 11 at the popular Jennerstown Speedway Complex in Jennerstown, Pa.
After Jennerstown, it's back to New England for the annual Bob Webber Sr. Memorial Star Classic 150 Saturday, September 18 at the quarter-mile Star Speedway in Epping, N.H.
Tentatively, ISMA will close 2021 with it's lone trip to Connecticut October 9-10 for the famed World Series of Racing at the ultra-fast five-eighths-mile Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park.
