International Super Modified Association

Stafford Motor Speedway Next Stop for Triple Crown Championship Series this Friday

OSWEGO, NY (June 19, 2017) – The Shea Concrete Triple Crown Championship Series of Supermodified racing presented by ASI Racewear will next head to Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford Springs, CT for round number four of the overall championship and the second ISMA event on the tour.

The winged warriors of the International Supermodified Association will be making their first trip to Stafford since June of 2013, when Mike Lichty drove to victory lane.

The return to Stafford will offer TCCS drivers and teams an opportunity to score more points in their overall run for the Triple Crown title, which will pay nearly $30,000 in prize money following the Star Speedway Classic in September.  The Friday night special will be the last opportunity for drivers to score wing points in the series before the tour heads to Sandusky Speedway in Ohio for Hy-Miler weekend July 28-29.

Dave Shullick Jr., the two-time and defending ISMA Supermodified champion, currently leads the Bentley Warren Driver of the Year standings for the TCCS, with two wins on the year coming in non-wing action at Oswego Speedway driving for John Nicotra Racing.

Shullick will be back aboard his usual ISMA mount this Friday, wheeling the Bodnar Motorsports No. 95.

Oswego Speedway non-wing regular Tim Snyder currently sits second in the TCCS driver points following a very consistent start to the season, and is expected to make the trip to Stafford to try and better his 15th place effort at Lancaster earlier this month.

Otto Sitterly is third in points and will continue as a Bodnar Motorsports teammate with Shullick, with Joe Gosek and Dave Danzer finishing the top five in the standings after three TCCS races this season.

Snyder continues his stellar season to this point as the leader of the current TCCS Jim Shampine Supermodified of the Year championship, with the Snyder Racing No. 0 currently standing as the top cross over Supermodified, running both wing and non-wing this year.

The standings at the top of the Supermodified of the Year championship are tight with the Gosek Racing No. 00 only 12-points behind in second and the Danzer Racing No. 52 in third, just 17-points shy of the top spot.

The Morton Racing No. 70 and Gruel Racing No. 50 Supermodifieds round out the top five in points heading to Stafford.

Following Stafford on Friday the TCCS tour will return to Oswego Speedway on Saturday, July 1 for the 75-lap non-wing Novelis Supermodified Independence Weekend Grand Prix.  The Grand Prix will be the third stop of the season for the TCCS at Oswego, and the final single point event of the non-wing portion of the tour.

The final two non-wing shows will be double point specials with the $10,000 to win Mr. Novelis Supermodified taking place on Saturday, July 22 and of course the $15,000 to win Budweiser International Classic 200 on Sunday, September 3.

OSWEGO, NY (May 30, 2017) – The Shea Concrete Triple Crown Championship Series of Supermodified racing presented by ASI Racewear moves to Lancaster Speedway this Saturday for round two of the combination championship.

This Saturday’s trip to western New York marks the first wing event of the series schedule and ISMA’s first trip to Lancaster in some 15 years.

Two-time and defending ISMA champion Dave Shullick Jr. currently leads the Bentley Warren Driver of the Year standings following his non-wing victory at Oswego on May 13, driving the John Nicotra Racing No. 2.

Shullick will pilot the Bodnar Racing No. 95 this weekend at Lancaster, with fellow Driver of the Year contender Otto Sitterly racing as his teammate.  Sitterly finished third at Oswego in the TCCS opener on May 13 and currently rides second in the driver’s championship just 10-points behind Shullick.

Dave Danzer sits in the third position in the championship heading to Lancaster with Tim Snyder and Jeff Abold filling the top five spots in the driver portion of the TCCS crown, which will pay $6,000 to the overall winner following the Star Classic in September.

Mike Muldoon, Joe Gosek, Dave Gruel, Joey Payne, Keith Shampine, and Dave McKnight have also scored points after race number one at Oswego with Tim Jedrzejek and Howard Page expected to be in action this weekend.

While Shullick and Sitterly lead the Bentley Warren Driver of the Year standings, Danzer Racing currently sits on top of the Jim Shampine Supermodified of the Year standings with their No. 52 machine.

Danzer finished fourth at Oswego on May 13 with the No. 52, the same Supermodified that he will drive on Saturday at Lancaster with the top wing. 

Snyder Racing and driver Tim Snyder are just 3-points behind Danzer in the Supermodified championship with Team Abold Racing, Muldoon Racing, and Gosek Racing filling the top five positions.

The Supermodified of the Year championship will also pay $6,000 to the winner at year end with Danzer, Snyder, and Abold currently in position to score a total of $12,000 as potential champions of both portions of the TCCS.

This Saturday’s TCCS/ISMA event at Lancaster will see pit gates open at 3 p.m. with grandstand gates opening and practice beginning at 4 p.m.  The night’s first race will hit the Speedway at 6:30 p.m.
