OSWEGO, N.Y. – For the 24th consecutive season, Saturday of Budweiser International Classic Weekend at Oswego Speedway is set to include the International Supermodified Ass’n on Sept. 1.

While a second division for Classic Saturday is still to be announced, it is confirmed that Friday will once again include ‘Pole Day’ time trials for supermodifieds and small block supermodifieds while Sunday, Sept. 2 will see the Budweiser International Classic 200 for the non-wing supermodifieds plus the Bud Light Classic 75 for the SBS.

“We are looking forward to again having the ISMA Supernationals as part of our schedule for the 62nd running of Classic Weekend,” said Oswego Speedway Public Relations Director Camden Proud. “ISMA has become a very important part of our longstanding Classic tradition for the past 20 years and that is something we hope to continue for many seasons to come.”

All of ISMA’s biggest stars, including new champion Jon McKennedy, Tim Jedrzejek, teammates Trent Stephens and Moe Lilje and front runners Dan Bowes, Mike McVetta, Mark Sammut, Mike Lichty, Chris Perley, Dave Shullick Jr, Michael Muldoon, Dave McKnight, Mike Ordway Jr, Dave Danzer, Kyle Edwards, Tim Snyder, and more are expected to be in attendance for the ISMA event at Oswego.

The first ISMA Supernationals 60 was contested during the 1994 season and Bentley Warren went to victory lane to add to his illustrious list of checkered flags on Classic Weekend. Since then, there have been 12 different winners in the 60-lap contest, including Lichty, Jedrzejek and Shullick who have dominated the event in the past five seasons. Oswego’s all-time winged supermodified winner Perley has also won the Supernationals an impressive five times.
