$5, $10 Fan Appreciation Specials Included in Oswego Speedway’s 2016 Weekly Pricing

OSWEGO, NY (February 1, 2016) – A week after the announcement of Oswego Speedway’s 2016 yearlong and 60th annual International Classic Weekend ticket packages, Speedway officials are happy to announce two separate fan appreciation savings specials in this year’s weekly pricing at the ‘Steel Palace.’

The first of two reduced rate specials will take place on Saturday, May 21 featuring a 50-lap Novelis Supermodified main and a 30-lap Pathfinder Bank SBS feature.

For the first time in several seasons, the Speedway will race on three consecutive weekends in the month of May, with general admission seating available on May 21 for only $10.  Padded reserved seating will be on sale for $15.

Following the Speedway’s successful $5 admission special last year, officials have decided to provide another $5 night in 2016, with a new race date.

The past two seasons the Speedway’s track championship combatants were forced to contend on rainout weekends, hampering many fans ability to take part in the action.

This season however on Saturday, August 20 fans will be able to enjoy the 2016 Road to the Championship finales for Novelis Supermodifieds and Pathfinder Bank SBS, the season’s second driver autograph session, and officially begin the countdown to Classic, for only $5 general admission.

The Speedway’s 60th annual Classic Weekend will also begin with a reduced rate special, inviting fans into the front grandstand on Friday, September 2 for open practice, International Classic and SBS Classic Time Trials, as well as SBS Classic heat races for only $5.

Fans who purchase Saturday/Sunday grandstand combo tickets for Classic Weekend will receive a voucher for FREE admission to Friday night qualifying.

The Speedway’s annual Classic Weekend Party in the Pits will return to Friday night, kick-starting as soon as the checkered flag falls with post-race pit entry free to fans.

A full listing of Oswego Speedway’s weekly ticket prices is now available at the Speedway website, listed under the schedule tab.

Qualifying Format for 60th International Classic 200 Revealed; Order of Events Posted

(Bill Taylor Photo)

OSWEGO, NY (January 14, 2016) – The 60th running of Oswego Speedway’s International Classic 200 for Novelis Supermodifieds will utilize a new qualifying format, compared to recent seasons, in order to determine the starting lineup for the 200 to be run on Sunday, September 4.

Two separate rounds of 2-lap qualifying time trials will still take place, with the opening round hitting the Speedway on ‘Fast Friday Pole Night’ on Friday, September 2.  Unlike in previous seasons, the fastest 20 competitors will lock into Sunday’s Classic field from the first round of time trials.

The last handful of years has only seen the fastest 14 drivers qualify through round one.

The fastest 20 drivers based on Friday time trials will start in positions 1-20 for the International Classic.  Drivers in positions 21 on back through the field will be aligned into two separate preliminary 15-lap Semi Final lineups to be contended on Sunday.

The 21st and 22nd fastest qualifiers will be set as the preliminary polesitters in each Semi Final, with the remainder of the starting lineups set straight up from time.

On Sunday at 11:30 a.m. a 30-minute second round of time trials will be conducted for drivers 21st on back, although it is not mandatory.  In the second round of qualifying a driver may elect to drop his or her first round time, and current Semi Final starting position, in order to re-time with the goal of moving up in the Semi Final lineup order.

Sunday’s second round time trials can also be used by teams that did not make a first round time trial attempt on Friday.

If the entire 30-minutes of qualifying is not needed, the track will re-open for Supermodified practice.

At Noon on Sunday, first and second round qualifying times for positions 21 on back will be combined, setting the official Semi Final lineups with the fastest drivers starting on the front row.

Each Semi Final will be 15-laps in length, with the first taking the green flag at 12:30 p.m.  A total of six drivers will qualify from each Semi Final, making up positions 21-32.  The finish of the first Semi Final will make-up the inside positions in rows 11-16, with the finish of the second Semi Final making up the outside positions in rows 11-16.

The final two positions in the International Classic field will be set using two provisional starters.

Following the two Semi Finals, Supermodifieds will be given their set of full-tank practice runs before moving into pre-race ceremonies for the Pathfinder Bank SBS Classic 75 at 2 p.m.

The International Classic 200 for Novelis Supermodifieds is set to take the green on that afternoon, no later than 4:30 p.m.

Pit gates will open on September 4 at 7 a.m. with hot laps being run from 9-11 a.m.
