OSWEGO, NY (September 11, 2017) – At the end of the 10-race Shea Concrete Triple Crown Championship Series presented by ASI Racewear, Michael Muldoon and Dave Shullick Jr. stand on top as champions with the duo netting a combined $16,000 for their efforts.

The Muldoon Racing team leads the money earnings list for the TCCS, finishing the season as the Jim Shampine Supermodified of the Year, while finishing second in the Bentley Warren Driver of the Year.  The end result is a $10,000 pay day, which will be awarded at Oswego Speedway’s championship banquet on Saturday, November 4.

With their 9th place effort in the Star Classic, the Muldoon Racing team was able to hold off the hard charging Abold Racing No. 05 squad, who put together another top five effort at Star but finished a mere 25-points shy of Muldoon in the same car championship.

Shullick absolutely dominated the Bentley Warren Driver of the Year championship, topping Muldoon by 130-points, thanks to the help of back-to-back Classic wins at Oswego and Star driving for John Nicotra and Jim Bodnar.  The TCCS driver’s championship will see Shullick walk out of the Oswego banquet with an extra $6,000.

Thanks to a 3rd place effort in the driver’s championship, Abold will tie Shullick on the earnings list, collecting a total of $6,000 for his efforts during the 2017 season, utilizing the same Supermodified.

Tim Jedrzejek and Otto Sitterly would complete the top five in the Bentley Warren Driver of the Year championship, claiming $1,000 and $500 respectively.

In the Jim Shampine Supermodified of the Year championship, Gary Morton Racing was able to hang onto the third position with the help of driver Joey Payne at the Star Classic.  Morton, who made every race but the Fourth of July special at Oswego, earns $2,000.

Despite missing the Hy-Miler Nationals, Gosek Racing finished the season 4th in the same car race earning $1,000 with Snyder Racing finishing the top five and claiming $500.

A total of seven Supermodified teams completed the required six events in the TCCS this season, with Penix Racing and Danzer Racing finishing just outside of the top five positions.

A total of 10 Supermodified drivers completed the six race mandate with Gosek, Payne, Danzer, Snyder, and McKnight finishing out of the money in positions six through ten.

“I would like to personally thank the sponsors, teams, drivers, track and series operators, and fans that supported the TCCS in 2017,” said TCCS Promoter, Dan Kapuscinski.  “The commitment shown by these individuals to support Supermodified racing, across all platforms, did not go unnoticed and will not be forgotten.  Congratulations to all TCCS drivers and teams, especially champions Dave Shullick Jr. and Michael Muldoon, on a fantastic season.  While there will likely always be a natural line in the sand between winged and non-winged racing, I hope that we helped blur that line some while giving a little back to a dedicated bunch of racers.”

About the TCCS: The Triple Crown Championship Series of Supermodified Racing, a promotional Supermodified series, was formed by Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions in conjunction with Oswego Speedway and the International Supermodified Association.  The 10-race joint venture, which helps to provide bonus money for Supermodified drivers and owners, would not be possible without the support of Shea Concrete Products, ASI Racewear, A&P Automotive, Burke’s Do-It-Best Home Centers as well as the support and dedication of the participating TCCS race teams and the loyal Supermodified fan base.

Supermodified Fans Rejoice: Twelve Consecutive Weekends Provide Twenty Races

OSWEGO, NY (June 30, 2017) – After what many would consider a slow start to the Supermodified season, fans of the 800+ HP rockets can rejoice this summer, as 12 consecutive weekends of action will provide a total of twenty Supermodified shows through July, August, and September.

Beginning with Saturday’s Oswego Speedway Independence Weekend Grand Prix 75, which is a part of the Triple Crown Championship schedule, and Sandusky (OH) Speedway’s MSA event; the month of July will be a busy one for Supermodified fans and teams.

Oswego and the MSA come right back on July 8 with the non-wing supers running a 50-lapper at the Steel Palace as the MSA bunch takes on Lorain County Speedway in Ohio.

Another double header takes place on Saturday, July 15 as Oswego puts on its 50-lap Summer Championship, while ISMA travels to Jennerstown Speedway in Pennsylvania.

The $10,000 to win Mr. Novelis Supermodified 75 at Oswego Speedway is the only game in action on Saturday, July 22, as the first major of the season will provide double points for TCCS competitors.

The very next weekend is the biggest Supermodified event in the Midwest as ISMA and MSA converge on Sandusky Speedway for Hy-Miler Weekend, July 28-29.  The first “Classic” of 2017 will see a 40-lapper on Friday and the famed 100-lapper on Saturday.  Both nights will provide TCCS points, with Saturday’s show being a double point special.

Oswego returns to action on Saturday, August 5 with Retro Night featuring Super Semis and a 45-lap main as the MSA also returns to Lorain County Speedway.

ISMA and Oswego will share a weekend, but separate race nights on August 11 and August 12.  ISMA takes on Lee Speedway on Friday while Oswego runs a 50-lapper on Saturday.

Dual events on Saturday, August 19 will pay huge dividends as Oswego Speedway’s show will crown a champion on track championship night and ISMA’s winner at Delaware International Speedway will head home with a whopping $10,000.

The MSA and Sandusky Speedway will have August 26 all to themselves for a big main event before Budweiser International Classic Weekend at Oswego on Labor Day Weekend.

The Bud Light ISMA Super Nationals will of course take place on Saturday, September 2 at Oswego with the Budweiser International Classic 200 rounding out the weekend on Sunday, September 3.  The International Classic will be a double point TCCS show.

The final “Classic” of the season will take place on Saturday, September 9 for the ISMA Star Speedway Classic which will officially crown the TCCS champions for 2017.

Finally, Saturday, September 16 the MSA gang will finish a twelve consecutive weekend stretch of action with their championship night at Sandusky Speedway.

“Being that I am only promoting the TCCS this season, I am sort of an outside observer of the Supermodified landscape,” said Dan Kapuscinski.  “I know fans have been a little down on the lack of racing to start the year, but there is a ton of racing to watch and support through the next three months.  We will have action in Ohio, New York, and New England every weekend through the middle of September.  So please go out and support them all and support the sport we love.”

Stafford Motor Speedway Next Stop for Triple Crown Championship Series this Friday

OSWEGO, NY (June 19, 2017) – The Shea Concrete Triple Crown Championship Series of Supermodified racing presented by ASI Racewear will next head to Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford Springs, CT for round number four of the overall championship and the second ISMA event on the tour.

The winged warriors of the International Supermodified Association will be making their first trip to Stafford since June of 2013, when Mike Lichty drove to victory lane.

The return to Stafford will offer TCCS drivers and teams an opportunity to score more points in their overall run for the Triple Crown title, which will pay nearly $30,000 in prize money following the Star Speedway Classic in September.  The Friday night special will be the last opportunity for drivers to score wing points in the series before the tour heads to Sandusky Speedway in Ohio for Hy-Miler weekend July 28-29.

Dave Shullick Jr., the two-time and defending ISMA Supermodified champion, currently leads the Bentley Warren Driver of the Year standings for the TCCS, with two wins on the year coming in non-wing action at Oswego Speedway driving for John Nicotra Racing.

Shullick will be back aboard his usual ISMA mount this Friday, wheeling the Bodnar Motorsports No. 95.

Oswego Speedway non-wing regular Tim Snyder currently sits second in the TCCS driver points following a very consistent start to the season, and is expected to make the trip to Stafford to try and better his 15th place effort at Lancaster earlier this month.

Otto Sitterly is third in points and will continue as a Bodnar Motorsports teammate with Shullick, with Joe Gosek and Dave Danzer finishing the top five in the standings after three TCCS races this season.

Snyder continues his stellar season to this point as the leader of the current TCCS Jim Shampine Supermodified of the Year championship, with the Snyder Racing No. 0 currently standing as the top cross over Supermodified, running both wing and non-wing this year.

The standings at the top of the Supermodified of the Year championship are tight with the Gosek Racing No. 00 only 12-points behind in second and the Danzer Racing No. 52 in third, just 17-points shy of the top spot.

The Morton Racing No. 70 and Gruel Racing No. 50 Supermodifieds round out the top five in points heading to Stafford.

Following Stafford on Friday the TCCS tour will return to Oswego Speedway on Saturday, July 1 for the 75-lap non-wing Novelis Supermodified Independence Weekend Grand Prix.  The Grand Prix will be the third stop of the season for the TCCS at Oswego, and the final single point event of the non-wing portion of the tour.

The final two non-wing shows will be double point specials with the $10,000 to win Mr. Novelis Supermodified taking place on Saturday, July 22 and of course the $15,000 to win Budweiser International Classic 200 on Sunday, September 3.
