Newsmaker of the Week // Oswego Speedway

Oswego Speedway in upstate New York was built 65 years ago. Unlike most such tracks, it has stood the test of time.

It’s unique Supermodified class gives the track a reputation for lightning fast speeds. Its International Classic, first run in 1957, is one of the nation’s premier races.

Its embracing of Asphalt Modifieds has been a long standing tradition. culminating in the acquisition of the Race Of Champions, an event first run in 1951 at several tracks prior to finding an Oswego home.

And this week, Oswego Speedway, with World Racing Group and DIRTcar, announced that it would host Super DIRT Week.

To do so means coating the pavement with dirt, reverting back to the track’s earliest days when it was in fact dirt.

With three major races now set just six weeks apart, Oswego Speedway is at the center of the northeastern short track universe – both dirt and asphalt.

It’s a huge story for a storied race track that often has made news, but never quite like this!
