OSWEGO, NY (June 3, 2019) – The International Supermodified Association is readying to kickoff its 44th consecutive championship season next Saturday, June 15 at the Delaware Speedway in Delaware, Ontario.
Delaware’s annual Harvey Lennox Memorial 75-lap event opens a ten race title fight for the winged Supermodifieds, beginning in Ontario in June and ending at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Connecticut in mid-October.
Several of Supermodified racing’s biggest stars are expected for the June 15 event including ISMA franchise competitors Mike Lichty, Mike Ordway Jr, Tim Jedrzejek, Ben Seitz, and many more.
The Harvey Lennox Memorial is also the first of three events part of ISMA’s Tammy Ten Bonus Point Fund sponsored by Corr-Pak Merchandising and Arctic Equipment Manufacturing, which have combined to post an additional $7,000 to the top five in points from Canadian shows.
Other 2019 Canadian appearances for the International Supermodified Association will take place at Jukasa Motor Speedway on Saturday, July 13 before a return trip to Delaware later in the season on Saturday, August 17.
On raceday, Delaware pit gates will swing open at 3:00pm, grandstands gates open at 4:00pm, and racing will begin at 6pm. The OSCAAR Open Wheel Mods and Delaware Late Models are also part of the program. Tickets are available online at DelawareSpeedway.com.
