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.
Delaware, Ont., Canada (Aug. 19, 2017) - They say good things come to those who wait and for London, Ontario's Mark Sammut that wait for a feature win at Delaware was 21 years in the making. Sammut, who calls Delaware Speedway his home track, had raced many times at the half-mile oval over his long career, but had never won a supermodified feature there. He'd come close, but Saturday night he nailed it, picking up his 6th career ISMA win but first victory at Delaware, which was also a very lucrative one that carried a $10,000 first place prize, sponsored by Corr/Pak Merchandising, Arctic Snowplows, Murray's Transmission and PATCO Transportation.
Waterford, CT(August 12, 2017) - After an unusually high rate of attrition at Lee USA Speedway on Friday night, the ISMA competitors trekked south to Waterford were down in numbers, but a combination of crashes, curfews and a late night start to the Saturday night feature caused more havoc.
The ISMA 75 started last on the agenda and fearfully close to the track's midnight curfew and some spotty rain in the area. When all was said and down, the race was shortened to 50 laps, then checkered after 39 complete when both rain and the curfew fell.
Lee, NH (August 11, 2017) – Baldwinsville, NY’s Michael Muldoon, with only five ISMA events under his belt viewed Lee USA Speedway in New Hampshire for the first time on Friday night. He quickly adapted to the new-to-him venue and came home with a very impressive win in the Ollie Silva Memorial 75. His first career winged win took a combination of a good starting spot and a little luck when race leader Ben Seitz stopped off turn four on lap 63, while due to motor issues.
Muldoon had led the 75-lapper up until lap 33, when passed by Seitz in the Locke 37. Muldoon stayed in second while Seitz was able to build a comfortable lead, hauling in the $1000 Shea Concrete lap 37 bonus, until the car’s demise. Muldoon retook the top spot and led the remaining 11 laps, pressured by Ohio’s Mike McVetta, for the victory, his first career ISMA win.
