Thompson, CT (October 11, 2020) - The ISMA supermodified season in 2020, ended with only three races run, and all were won by Jonathan McKennedy. His win this past Sunday at the Thompson World Series was a repeat of his 2019 World Series which started the four straight streak. On Sunday McKennedy started third and battled his way past Otto Sitterly to begin a race-long chase with Chris Perley who started on the pole by luck of the draw. The battle up front ended late in the 50 lapper when race leader Perley approached slower cars and in the ensuing cat and mouse game, McKennedy was able to take the lead away on lap 42 and fled away to take the win eight laps later.

With much work and preparation by the Webber family in the past months, the race was able to happen.
A stellar field of twenty-five supermodifieds gathered to compete in the running of the prestigious 55th Star Speedway Classic and it was a race for the history books. Battling for the win were some of the best big block supermodifieds from the Midwest to New England, and albeit the fact that no Canadian competitors could attend due to a COVID-19 border shutdown, it proved to be a fitting end to a definitely disrupted 2020 supermodified race season.

Lee, N.H. (August 7, 2020) – With the coronavirus reeking havoc everywhere, auto racing certainly has not escaped being affected. With many states and Canada facing strict guidelines on travel etc., a smaller than usual contingent of ISMA supermodified competitors were able to be at Lee USA Speedway on Friday night, August 7 for the Ollie Silva Memorial 75. For most in the field, it was the first race of this strange season. But, the 50% fan turnout saw an action-packed race as they practiced the guidelines put in place. And, they seemed extremely enthusiastic with the results.
Chelmsford, Mass. driver Jon McKennedy came up from 10th starting spot to gradually challenge race leader Mike Ordway Jr. who by luck of the draw was on the pole and out front rapidly on the green. But McKennedy, in a new car with new owners, felt good about his car and would end up being his fourth win of the prestigious Silva 75.
