Oswego Speedway Battling For Top Spot in SPEED SPORT ‘My Favorite Track’ Poll, Voting Open through February 24

OSWEGO, NY (February 17, 2016) – For the fourth consecutive year, Oswego Speedway is dueling with some of the premier motorsports facilities in the world for the top spot in the SPEED SPORT ‘My Favorite Track’ Poll.

Last season Oswego finished in the fourth position overall, ranked with facilities such as Ohio’s Eldora Speedway and Iowa’s Knoxville Raceway.

Last year’s poll response was twice that received during the poll in 2014 and 10 times  greater than the inaugural poll, held in 2012.

Since 2013, Oswego has been ranked among the top five facilities in the country, achieving the top status for an asphalt track in 2015.

That trend seems to be holding true so far in 2016, as Oswego is currently ranked with Eldora, Knoxville, Virginia International Raceway, and New Jersey Motorsports Park, among the front five positions with a full week of voting remaining.

“Oswego’s continued standing in the SPEED SPORT ‘My Favorite Track’ poll is a true testament to our amazing fans,” said Oswego Speedway PR Director, Dan Kapuscinski.  “Each year our fans flock to the SPEED SPORT site to show their allegiance to the Steel Palace.  We cannot thank them enough for that.”

Oswego Speedway PR representative and former Speedway racer Dan Kapuscinski as well as Speedway race team crew members Corey Norton Jr. and Brad Wygant, will all make the journey from Central New York to Maine to participate in the event and help support the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Establised in 2009 by David Thomas Jr., the DT100 for Make-A-Wish has grown to become one of the largest and most successful charity karting events in the country.  The event has successfully brought together some of the nation’s best short track drivers from over a dozen states to compete against their fans, with all proceeds benefiting the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Last season the DT100 raised over $33,000 for Make-A-Wish, bringing its seven year total to over $158,000.

Drivers in this year’s event include current and former Supermodified racers Kapuscinski, Joey Scanlon, Mike Netishen, Russ Wood, and Mike Ordway Jr.  Joining the Super shoes will be other top pilots including Burt and Jason Myers of the hit TV show “Madhouse” as well as NEMA Midget ace Randy Cabral and two-time NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour champion, Andy Seuss.

Some 100 entries will contend in three separate divisions looking for one of 36 main event qualifying spots in the 8th annual DT100.
