The ISMA Winged Warriors Make Long Awaited Appearance at “The County”
South Amherst, OH (November 10, 2014) – As the 2015 racing schedule takes shape, L.C.S officials announced that The County will host “ISMA Summercade” on June 26th & 27th. It will mark the first time since 1984 in the tracks history that it will be hosting an ISMA (International Super-Modified Association) event.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to form this relationship with ISMA” said Kevin Bonnema, Owner of Lorain County Speedway. “This partnership would not be possible without the support of the super-modified fan base we have right here in our backyard. Our next step will be to start an extensive search for a title sponsor which will be a necessity for an event of this size. We hope to announce the new sponsor at the start of the 2015 season.”
The announcement makes ISMA the biggest touring series to ever visit Lorain County, as the Winged Warrior’s join the Modifieds, Crate Sprints, Grand Nationals and Chargers on both Friday and Saturday Nights, this will prove to be the event of the year. ISMA is slated to compete for 50 laps on Friday and 100 laps on Saturday.
ISMA President Howie Lane said, “On behalf of ISMA and all the teams, we are very excited to be competing in 2015 at Lorain County Speedway's Summercade. As you know, for most of the teams, it is the first time racing at Lorain County Speedway. I feel that it will be a very fast, competitive race on Friday night and more exciting on Saturday as teams learn from Friday's race and make adjustments to be faster. We are all looking forward to this event in 2015.”
The final 2015 schedule, including additional racing events and related information, will be announced at a later date this winter.
The much-anticipated ISMA opener at Monadnock Speedway, which was slated for May 19, met with foul weather, which turned out to be the norm in the east in that month. So with two races in the books at Delaware and Lancaster Speedways, the ISMA contingent will try again next Saturday.
Lancaster, NY (June 2, 2018) – Canadian Mark Sammut has been an ISMA stalwart for 21 years, a congenial competitor who has weathered the up and down nature of racing. Last August he took his biggest win, a $10,000 payday at what he calls his home track, Delaware Speedway, to the approval of a huge throng of fans.
Saturday night at Lancaster Speedway, he picked up his seventh-career ISMA win, to the cheers of many Buffalo area fans who had seen him run and win years ago in his Can-Am midget. He quipped in victory lane when he spoke of that midget win, that he wasn't buying a dragster to win in another division at Lancaster! But he did mention that the car he was driving was 21 years old and it has served him well. The new car that had been debuted last year, has gone back to the drawing board.
Delaware, ONTARIO (June 1, 2018) – Kyle Edwards of Bartlett, Tennessee picked a good time to win his first ever ISMA feature on Friday night as the 50 lapper was the first leg of the Harvey Lennox Memorial Tammy Ten Bonus Fund. Thanks to Arctic Equipment, Corr/Pak Merchandising, Murray's Transmission and Patco Transportation, an extra $7000 bonus payout will go to the top five ISMA car owners based on points from this Delaware race, the Jukasa July event and the second August Delaware race.
