ISMA Thompson 14web 8180Chris Perley Picks Up First Win of 2014 Season at Thompson

THOMPSON, Conn. (October 19, 2014) -- Ben Seitz entered the 2013 Sunoco World Series at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park (CT) with an outside chance of winning the International Supermodified Association (ISMA) championship.  He would win that race, but come up short of the championship.

Fast forward one year to 2014 and Seitz found himself 46 points behind Jon McKennedy (Chelmsford, Mass.) entering the season-ending event at Thompson.  Only this time, the results were reversed.  He didn't win the battle, but he won the war.

Seitz parlayed a strong second-place run on Sunday afternoon with McKennedy's misfortune (blown engine) to win the 2014 ISMA driver's championship.

SHULLICK HOLDS OFF RIVAL LICHTY TO WIN ISMA SUPER NATIONALS

Second ISMA Win of the Year for Shullick at Oswego Speedway

OSWEGO, NY (August 30, 2014) - Ohio's Dave Shullick Jr. had the fastest car on Saturday at Oswego Speedway (NY), but it turned out to be a hard fought International Supermodified Association win at the end of the 60-lap ISMA Bud Light Super Nationals feature event.

Shullick, the winner of the "King of the Wings" event at Oswego earlier in the year, broke his own track record with a lap time of 14.938 seconds around the 5/8-mile track during time trials.

He seemed to be in control during the closing stages of the race but due in part to lapped cars, Ontario's Mike Lichty narrowed the margin on Shullick and even attempted to get under him at times, including on the final lap.
