At the close of the 2016 ISMA season, former 4-time NEMA Champion, 6-time ISMA feature winner and 2014 ISMA champion Ben Seitz found himself without a ride. As it goes in racing his race team was disbanding. Said Ben, "I think the car owner Dickie (Bien) pretty much had had enough. It was time for him to stop.”
The car was sold in the off-season, and Ben was left without a ride, but not for long. Along came car owner Ken Locke, whose son Jeff had decided to concentrate on his son Ryan's midget career, leaving the 37 without a driver.

One of these new combinations is that of P&L Motorsports and driver Jon McKennedy.

Oswego NY (May 1, 2017) – When the last checkered falls in October and the banquet door at the Turning Stone Casino, closes in November the chat rooms and car shows offer placebos to the race fan.

The hours in the garage prepping for the new season mount now for each team.
