OSWEGO, NY (June 2, 2020) – Due to circumstances and restrictions involving the COVID-19 outbreak in the state of New Hampshire, ISMA and Monadnock Speedway officials have made the decision to cancel the Saturday, June 27 ISMA Opener at the Winchester oval.

Following the series’ return to Canada, ISMA as always will conclude the month of July at Sandusky Speedway in Ohio for the two-day Hy-Miler Weekend featuring the ‘Fast 40’ on Friday, July 24 and the 43rd annual Hy-Miler Nationals 100 on Saturday, July 25.
