The September 11 stop to the western New York speed plant will be the first ever for the Small Block Supermodifieds, which make their home at Oswego Speedway on a weekly basis.
The series is fresh off of its biggest race of the season, the Bud Light SBS Classic 60, run last Sunday at Oswego with SBSCS series promoter and Oswego track champion Dan Kapuscinski earning his first series win of the season.
“Our series is eager to get to Lancaster for the first time this weekend,” said SBSCS promoter, Dan Kapuscinski. “We can’t thank everyone at Lancaster enough for having us, as well as our presenting sponsor MARDON, which is helping us to boast a $1,000 payday for our winner on Sunday.”
With a focus on cyber security and IT consulting, as well as performance PC’s; MARDON is quickly gaining a reputation in the sim racing, gaming and content development communities as the go to PC when reliability and performance matter.
Many sim racers that race at local tracks across the country on the weekends pilot a MARDON PC when they are not in the cockpit. MARDON will be launching a new buying experience at MARDONPC.com this week as well as introducing a new line of Custom PC Cases, CPU Coolers, and other performance PC components by Q1 2023.
