Muldoon Preparing Brand New Car for ISMA Supermodified Action in 2019

OSWEGO, NY (February 5, 2019) – Baldwinsville, NY driver Michael Muldoon and his team are preparing an all new homebuilt Supermodified for the full ISMA schedule in 2019.

Muldoon, a former main event winner in both winged and non-winged Supermodified competition, picked up his first career victory with ISMA in the Ollie Silva Memorial at Lee USA Speedway back in August of 2017.

In what was one of his more memorable seasons in the Supermodified ranks, 2017 also brought victories in an Oswego event and a strong run in the International Classic plus ISMA Rookie of the Year honors, and the Triple Crown Championship Series of Supermodified Racing ‘same car’ championship.

Since moving from the Oswego Speedway to full-time ISMA competition throughout the past two years, the driver of the No. 10 has scored two top ten efforts in the point standings plus seven top ten finishes and two top five runs including that very well documented first victory with a wing.

After a disappointing 2018 campaign which began with a broken heim joint while running third in the ISMA opener at Delaware, heavily damaging the new No. 10 car and forcing the team back home to ready the No. 15, the following day at Lancaster Speedway only resulted in further disappointment.

Following a heat race win and a favorable starting position in the main event, Muldoon’s engine began to sputter about 20 laps into the race until the coil finally failed on lap 40, eliminating him from contention. Bad luck was a common theme in 2018, but the Muldoon team is hard at work in hopes that 2019 will bring better results.

“In the offseason I cut the No. 15 car apart and it has been totally revamped with IFS. I have also been working on two new cars, but will only have one complete for the upcoming season,” Muldoon said. “Last season was a bit of disappointment. We spent most of it battling fuel pickup issues in the No. 10 car and struggled to keep that piece fast in the long runs. It was a frustrating year.”

As Muldoon readies for his third consecutive full-time ISMA campaign in a row, he hopes some of the changes to the No. 15 car along with the addition of the new No. 10 car will help in ensuring success and stability in the winged Supermodified ranks moving forward.

“I am looking forward to the 2019 season,” Muldoon commented. “With the changes I’ve made to the 15 car, I expect it to be better than it’s been. I have spent lots of time engineering parts for the two new cars and they will be much different than any of the cars I’ve built so far. I am excited to see how they perform the next couple of years.”

With race season drawing near, the Muldoon shop remains as busy as ever this offseason. The No. 10 car that was raced last year has since been converted over to a 350 Supermodified which will race at Star Speedway this summer.

An older Hawk frame was brought to the Muldoon shop and that too was turned into a 350 Super that will now join the former No. 10 in Star Speedway competition.

The familiar No. 15 car which won the 2017 Silva Memorial is undergoing significant changes throughout the winter. Along with these changes, the two new frames are in the process of being assembled with intentions of at least one of them hitting the race track this year.

At this time, the Muldoon team plans to compete in the full ISMA schedule plus select Oswego Speedway and Midwest Supermodified Series events.

The team is always looking for additional support, so if anyone is interested in sponsoring Muldoon Racing for the upcoming season, feel free to contact Mike Muldoon on Facebook at Facebook.com/MikeMuldoon33 or on Twitter @MikeMuldoon15.

ISMA’s 2019 tour beings at the Lancaster Speedway, located just outside Buffalo, NY, on Saturday, June 1. The Supermodifieds have made a popular return to Lancaster in each of the past two seasons with Trent Stephens and Mark Sammut each visiting victory lane.

The International Supermodified Association (ISMA) will have a new and improved presence on social media this season.
