OSWEGO, NY (August 22, 2020) – Due to ongoing New York State COVID-19 restrictions, and the latest extension of executive order 202.32, Oswego Speedway management has decided to call off the 64th edition of Budweiser International Classic Weekend slated for September 4-6.

“It is with a heavy heart that for the first time in the Steel Palace’s history, we announce that the International Classic will not run. We are devastated,” said track owner John Torrese. “I want to apologize to our fans, drivers, teams, and advertising partners. While we took as much time as possible to carefully weigh options before making this difficult decision, we feel it is for the best, and hope to hold the 64th annual edition of the Classic on Labor Day Weekend 2021.”

With Budweiser Classic Week 64 featuring the Novelis Supermodifieds, Pathfinder Bank SBS, J&S Paving 350 Supers, NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, Sunoco New York Super Stocks, and Midwest Compact Touring Series now on hold; the ‘20 season will be etched in history books as the one that ‘never was’ for Oswego Speedway. 

In the coming months, track management will hit the reset button and begin to piece together all of the details for the 2021 season; which will now carry the title of Oswego’s 70th anniversary celebration. 

“We will look forward to 2021, and hope to have our fans back in the seats, teams on the track, and all of us enjoying the races again,” Torrese continued. “Thank you to everyone in our racing community for the continued support and patience this season. Stay safe, and healthy, and we’ll see you when the green flag drops in 2021.”
