ISMA’s CarStar Collision and Glass Service 75 at Delaware Speedway Cancelled Due to COVID-19 Complications

OSWEGO, NY (June 11, 2020) – ISMA’s CarStar Collision and Glass Service 75 scheduled for Saturday, August 15 at the Delaware Speedway in Delaware, Ontario has been cancelled due to complications involving COVID-19. 

The Delaware event is the third ISMA race lost to the public health pandemic in 2020, joining the May 30 show scheduled for the Oswego Speedway and the 75-lapper scheduled for June 27 at Monadnock Speedway. 

While Supermodifieds will not be returning to Monadnock or Delaware until 2021, officials are working with Oswego Speedway management on a potential makeup date for later in the 2020 season. 

For the time being, the July 11 event at Jukasa Motor Speedway in Ontario is on as scheduled, but due to fluid changes as well as the potential continuation of the border closure between the United States and Canada, teams are asked to check back frequently for updates. 

Following the series’ return to Canada, ISMA will conclude the month of July at the Sandusky Speedway in Ohio for the two-day Hy-Miler Weekend featuring the ‘Fast 40’ on Friday, July 24 and the 43rd annual Hy-Miler Nationals 100 on Saturday, July 25. 

As of June 11, all other events on ISMA’s 2020 schedule; Lee on Friday, August 7, Seekonk on Wednesday, August 12, Oxford on Saturday, August 29, Star on Saturday, September 19, and Thompson on Sunday, October 11 remain a go.

OSWEGO, NY (October 8, 2019) – The International Supermodified Association will conclude its 2019 season with the organization’s annual trip to the ‘World Series’ of Racing at the Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Connecticut this Saturday and Sunday. 

Supermodified teams will first compete in Saturday’s heat races, before all attention turns to Sunday’s 50-lap finale which will decide the ISMA championship between defending champ Kyle Edwards and 2012 champion, Mike Lichty. 

Lichty will be coming from Ontario and Edwards from Tennessee to partake in the final big block Super event of 2019. Only fifty four points separate them. The duo will be joined by regulars Mike Ordway Jr, Dan Bowes, Jon McKennedy, Ben Seitz, Mark Sammut, and Nick Capelli.

A pair of two car teams will be on hand, with Lane Racing fielding rides for multi-time winner Tim Jedrzejek and rookie sensation Jeff Battle. Chris Perley will also make his return to Thompson, while Michael Barnes will be piloting a second Vic Miller entry. 

2019 Oswego Budweiser International Classic 200 champion Tyler Thompson, who finished fifth in the World Series one year ago, will be in the field searching for ISMA win number one. The 17-year old grabbed his first winged Super victory at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indy last month. 

Joining Edwards from the midwest are two drivers that frequent the Midwest Supermodified Series; Rich Reid and AJ Leseicki. The New England contingent will be strong as well with additional support from Jamie Timmons, Bobby Chartier, and Dave Duggan. 

Three other drivers that competed on Classic Weekend at Oswego; Danny Connors Jr. Dave McKnight, and Joey Payne, have also confirmed plans to race at Thompson. This weekend’s event will mark Payne’s first ISMA appearance in several years. 

A full schedule of events as well as ticket pricing for Thompson’s World Series is available at ThompsonSpeedway.com. Racing will start at 1:30pm on Saturday and 12:30pm on Sunday, which also features a 150-lap event for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.
