With Classic Week officially underway at Oswego Speedway, many fans traveling to the track from across the country, or simply making plans for the weekend, are all looking for a full-time schedule for Friday, September 1, Saturday, September 2, and Sunday, September 3, as the track has fielded several requests for further scheduling and pricing information with the biggest event of the season approaching.

On Friday, September 1, Central New York Chevy Dealers ‘Pole Day’ qualifying will take place for the Novelis Supermodifieds and Pathfinder Bank SBS before Small Block Super Bud Light semi-finals and a ‘Party in the Pits’ with a performance by country act Dirtorad Ruckus conclude the evening’s festivities. Qualifying will begin at 5:30pm.

Saturday, September 2, will see the return of NASCAR to Oswego as the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will be in town for the second consecutive Toyota Mod Classic 150 presented by McDonald’s. The winged warriors of the International Supermodified Association will join the Mod Squad in their third appearance of the season; the ‘ISMA Supernationals’ 60.

And finally, on Sunday, September 3, the richest and most prestigious Supermodified race in the world will get the green flag at approximately 4:30pm as the 61st Budweiser International Classic 200 and 26th Bud Light SBS Classic 75 will all take place Sunday afternoon. Preliminary action will begin at 12pm.

The full time schedule along with pricing information is listed below. Fans are reminded that three day general admission seating is available for $90 while three day reserved seating is available for $95. The 3-day pit pass also returns in 2017 and is set for $125, with the 2-day option of Saturday and Sunday priced at $100.
