ISMA Supermodifieds Return Saturday for King of Wings VIII Battle Royale

OSWEGO, NY (July 5, 2016) – The mighty ISMA Supermodifieds, as well as the Pathfinder Bank SBS, return to Oswego Speedway on Saturday, July 9 for the eighth edition of the prestigious King of Wings presented by Holiday Inn Express and Suites and Helena Chemical Company.

King of Wings VIII will mark the second round of the Shea Concrete ‘Steel Palace’ ISMA Super Series at the Speedway, bringing the best in winged Supermodified racing to the Port City for the right to wear the crown that comes along with a King of Wings championship.

Joining the ISMA Supermodified 50-lap King of Wings VIII main event will be the next round in the Road to the Championship for Oswego’s Pathfinder Bank Small Block Supers.

Since the inaugural King of Wings in 2009, a total of six different drivers have claimed the coveted title.

King Charlie Schultz I was the first champion of the of the popular summer spectacular, out-gunning then teammate Tim Ice, Mike Lichty, Ray Graham, and Chris Perley for the title.

In 2010, King Bob Bond II earned his first career Supermodified win in the King of Wings driving his own No. 25 Supermodified to victory with Ice again settling for second ahead of Bobby Dawson, Bob Magner, and Joe Gosek.

The 2011 running of KoW would see a third different winner, but again the same runner-up.  This time it would be King Mike Lichty III leading Ice across the line for the win with Timmy Jedrzejek, Trent Stephens and Randy Ritskes filling the top five spots.

The King of Wings main in 2012 was one for the record books, with longtime Supermodified car owner Steve Miller finally grabbing his first main event win with King Dave Gruel IV wheeling the Sweet 16 to victory over Johnny Benson, Schultz, Lou Cicconi, and Jedrzejek.

In 2013 the King of Wings would see its first repeat winner as King Mike Lichty V flew to victory over Dave Shullick Jr., Ben Seitz, Ice, and Jeff Locke.

In 2014 another name was added to the illustrious list of King of Wings champions as King Dave Shullick VI stormed to the payday over Perley, Lichty, Locke, and Seitz.

Then last season the sixth different winner’s name was etched in history as King Otto Sitterly VII earned his first ISMA Supermodified win with a spectacular run over Alison Cumens, Perley, Danny Shirey, and Jedrzejek.

Each year Oswego Speedway’s King of Wings provides another thread of memorable moments and this year will be no different as ISMA championship combatants Lichty and Shullick lead the band of winged warriors back to the ‘Steel Palace.’

Lichty returns to Oswego this weekend with the hot hand at the Big O having won the Jack Murphy Memorial at the Speedway on May 28, after having set another new track record with a lap of 14.730 seconds.

The top ten of the ISMA Supermodified point standings heading into Oswego this weekend is a who’s who of Supermodified competitors with Mike McVetta, Dave McKnight, Jedrzejek, Seitz, Kyle Edwards, Mike Ordway Jr., Mark Sammut, and Ice all joining the fray.

The Speedway’s pit window will open at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday with the main pit gate opening at 2 p.m.  Hot laps will take place at 3:30 p.m. with the opening on the spectator gates with ISMA time trials at 5:30 p.m. and racing at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now for King of Wings VIII.  Tickets can be purchased at the Speedway box office or by phone.
