Former Classic Winner, IndyCar Veteran Davey Hamilton Reunites with John Nicotra for Run at 63rd Budweiser International Classic 200

OSWEGO, NY (August 20, 2019) – 1997 Budweiser International Classic 200 champion Davey Hamilton will reunite with car owner John Nicotra and teammate Otto Sitterly for another run at Oswego Speedway’s 63rd Budweiser International Classic 200 next Sunday, September 1. 

Hamilton, a former IndyCar star known for his career in the NTT IndyCar Series; highlighted by three second place finishes and several stints in the Indianapolis 500, has not competed with a Supermodified since Classic Weekend one year ago. 

“I know it will be a challenge since I haven’t drove a Supermodified with the new wing package yet, but I’m looking forward to the trip to Oswego for Classic,” said Hamilton Tuesday. “Having nine-time champ Otto (Sitterly) helping me get up to speed, we are hoping for a good result.”

The Boise, I.D. driver has been victorious in a handful of Supermodified events throughout his career including the aforementioned ‘97 Classic, three winged Supermodified events with ISMA, and most recently Oswego’s 75-lap Season Opener in May 2013. 

Hamilton has competed in a total of ten Classics for Nicotra, with finishes of ninth, fourth, tenth, third, second, fifteenth, third, fourth, fifth, and fifteenth since his first 200 with the team in 2007. 

To purchase tickets for Budweiser International Classic Weekend, scheduled for August 30 through September 1, please phone the box office at (315)-342-0646 or send an email to the track at oswegospeedway@gmail.com.

The All American Auto Group Modifieds will battle in a 127-lap main event with drivers not only searching for the rich payday, but also for the honor of winning this second annual “Cliff Krause Memorial” race. Last season, Cliff Krause’s son Andrew was the emotional winner of the first annual event.

In addition to Holmdel’s Krause, former track champion Jimmy Blewett of Howell has said that he will be in the field with plenty of competition coming from speedway regulars Eric Mauriello of Brick, Steven Reed and Jason Treat, both of Jackson, Derek Hopkinson of Toms River, Mayetta’s Tyler Truex, Roger Coss of Lafayette and New Egypt’s Jason Hearne, just to name a few.
