Drivers look to cash in at Oswego Kartway’s Fall Frenzy 150

     The most unique event in Oswego Kartway's history will take place this Friday, Sept. 20, with the running of the RJ Kart Sales Fall Frenzy 150.

     A total of 150-laps of feature action will take place between the evening's two highlighted divisions, Stock Heavy Flathead and Clone Heavy.

     Kart racing's best from across New York State are expected to come to the Bullring on Friday to take on the Kartway's regulars in search of an inaugural Fall Frenzy championship and the handsome winner's purse that comes along with it.

     Should there be a total of 20 karts in each division, 70 percent of the entry money collected will go directly back to the top five finishers in each main event. If there are less than 20 entrants, pay back will only go to the top three finishers.

     With that said, the Stock Heavy 100-lap main event champion would earn $350 for their efforts based on 20 entries. Another $350 would be spread across the second through fifth place finishers.

     Other bonuses including the GS Steamers Stock Heavy fast time award worth $100 and the halfway leader bonus of $100, plus potential lap money could see one Flathead driver walk away with over $1,000 on Friday night.

     The Clone Heavy 50 procedure works the same way with the money potentials just slightly different. The Clone champion, including bonuses, could earn well more than $600 by night's end on Friday.

     All 50 lap sponsorships for the Clone Heavy event have been sold, with a total of $250 in lap money on the line.

     Just 12 lap sponsorships remain for the Stock Heavy 100 and once sold out, the total will reach $545, as Kartway photographer Ray Grela has posted a $50 bonus to lead lap 75.

     Doug Grimaldi of Adrenaline Rush Racing has also signed on to post a $100 bonus to the winner of the Stock Heavy 100 and Clone Heavy 50 if they win with an Adrenaline Rush Racing decal on their kart.

     The RJ Kart Sales Stock Heavy 100 will run 100-laps with a halfway break at lap 50. During the break drivers will have 15 minutes to service their karts, able to change anything except their tires and engine. Drivers must start the second 50-lap segment on the same tires they ended on for the first segment.

     The Clone Heavy 50 will work in the same manner with the 15 minute halfway break coming at lap 25.

     Live pit stops will be allowed during race conditions in each event, with tire changes at this time being acceptable.

     Entry blank information and pricing for the Stock Heavy and Clone Heavy events on September 20 is available under the Fall Frenzy tab at www.oswegokartway.com.

     Other divisions competing on Sept. 20 will be standard entry fees.

     Pit gates open on Sept. 20 at 4 p.m. with one round of practice at 6 p.m. Time trials for the Fall Frenzy 150 will begin at 7 p.m.
