6/24/2018 – Rain-Postponed Makeup Race

Sunday, June 24th, 2018 – In a strange string of bad luck for our race scheduling (which we have had an unbelievably large share of for around a year now), rain drenched the track most of the day and deterred several committed drivers from coming (while on the flip side, many weeks we have had great weekends and nobody make it up to race). But when the rain let up, Matt Stevens went to work and got the track suitable enough to run. Kelly Miller brought some racers up and we had a makeup points race (Matt will be scored for non-seasonal bonus points). We went live (stationary camera) AND tape delay (regular angle).

6/28/2018 – Exhibition Race for Doug Didero!

Thursday, June 28th, 2018 – Doug Didero–Oswego Speedway Hall of Famer (three time Oswego Supermodified track champ, two time Oswego Super Classic 200 winner and 9th all time in Oswego Super Feature wins), not to mention a veteran of many other forms of racing, (including NASCAR Busch, IRL, and more)–stopped by to watch a 3 kart exhibition by Kelly Miller, Matt and Chris Stevens. Chris and Matt have been fans of Doug since the early 1990s and finally got him up to check out our big backyard speedway as Kelly was able to pull him and his car owner away from his Super for a bit to check it out. He loved it and wanted to see 10-15 karts out there! (We wholeheartedly agree! Where have the drivers been?) Also: Really cool of the Oswego Speedway to shout out this picture on Facebook and Twitter!

Next race is TBA, as Chris and his wife Rungnapha (the usual tower camera woman) welcomed their second daughter to the world on Friday.
