Oswego Speedway Finalizes Laps and Pricing for 2019 Events Submitted photo

Oswego Speedway recently finalized several details as part of its 2019 schedule including race length, admission pricing and event sponsors amongst other items.

Competitors in the Novelis Supermodified, Pathfinder Bank SBS and 350 Super divisions will compete in a ten week long race for the track championship beginning with the speedway’s annual Memorial Weekend special on Saturday, May 25.

Oswego’s regular season will continue through the summer featuring three events in the months of June, July and August before the 63rd edition of Budweiser International Classic Weekend is held from Friday, August 30 through Sunday, September 1.

Novelis Supermodified competitors are set to participate in a total of twelve championship events including two twin feature shows as Jim Shampine Memorial Twin 50’s will open the season on May 25 before the track’s Twin 35 special is held on June 8.

The Pathfinder Bank SBS series has eleven championship events on the calendar which includes the return of Twin 20 features on August 10 while the new 350 Super class has a total of eight championship shows. The 350s will receive the night off on June 8 and August 3.

Distance for feature events will remain similar to that of years past in 2019, with Novelis Supermodified and Pathfinder Bank SBS teams competing in their respective 50 and 30-lap headliners on regular race nights 

Feature event length for the 350 Supermodifieds has been changed slightly from 35-laps to 25-laps for all regular programs. It was also announced recently that the 2nd annual 350 Super Classic will be 50-laps.

For extra distance specials on May 25, July 6 and July 20, race length will increase to 75-laps for the Supermodifieds and 35-laps for both the Small Block Supermodifieds and the 350 Supermodifieds.

Oswego Speedway’s pricing has also been finalized for 2019. Adult general admission for all regular events is set at $20 with reserved seating priced at $25. Prices will increase for extra distance shows to $25 and $30, respectively.

Joining specials such as the Jim Shampine Memorial, the Twin 35’s, the Independence Weekend Grand Prix, and the 33rd running of Mr. Novelis Supermodified are the return of Family Night on August 10 and $5 Admission Track Championship Night on August 17.

Fireworks will again be part of the program on Family Night in 2019 along with a pre-race autograph session amongst various other activities for young race fans.

As done in years past, $5 general admission seating will be available for the season points finale one week later while reserved seating will be only $10.

The return of the Novelis Fan Can Chase will kick off on Opening Day, May 25, before rounds two and three commence during the Independence Weekend Special on July 6 and later on Mr. Supermodified Night July 23.

Paint the Palace ‘Teal’ Night, organized to raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer, will also be back this season with a new date of July 23. Fans will be encouraged to wear teal as part of the Mr. Supermodified program that evening.

Oswego Speedway’s well publicized ‘Kids 16 and under FREE’ policy, along with free admission for all active military with ID will be back as well. Senior citizens will continue to receive a $2 discount on all general admission and reserved seating.

Additional VIP seating in the ‘tower’ and sky deck overlooking the race track will also remain available this year. The VIP rate, which includes admission plus all you can eat and drink, is set at $75 for regular shows or $90 for extra distance events.

Notable additions to the speedway’s schedule since its initial release include the incorporation of two Sunoco New York Super Stock Series events on Saturday, June 8 and again on Friday, August 30.

The Super Stocks will join the Novelis Supermodifieds and Pathfinder Bank SBS for a 30-lap special on June 8 before competing in the 50-lap Dave London Memorial on Budweiser International Classic Weekend.

Oswego Speedway’s traditional ‘off’ night in June, which is put in place for high school graduation, has been changed from June 22 to June 29. The speedway will now open on the 22nd with a full program for the Supers, Small Block Supers and 350 Supers.

The popular ‘Grand Prix’ Night, typically held prior to Independence Day, will instead take place on July 6 this year and feature extra distance events for all three divisions plus fireworks to cap the night.

In addition to the June 29 date, the speedway is also off for Sandusky Speedway’s Hy-Miler Nationals on July 27, and again on August 24 in preparation of Classic Weekend.

Classic Weekend pricing is not yet finalized and full time schedules for each event remain in the works as well. Competitor information, including full purses for all three classes, will be made public in the coming days.

Those interested in renewing season tickets or Classic Weekend tickets have until Saturday, May 1 to contact Paul Conzone at [email protected] Please note that season and Classic Weekend ticket pricing will not be made available until the beginning of April.
