Syracuse, NY (November 3, 2018) - The International SuperModified Association gathered at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Syracuse, NY on Saturday, November 3 to honor their 2018 champions and top point getters and to recognize the members with their traditional awards as per member vote. New Englander and part-time ISMA announcer John Spence, was the emcee for the evening.
Thompson, CT (October 14, 2018) – Sunday at the Thompson Speedway appeared to be a great ISMA finale with a strong field of cars and no rain. It turned out to be a great day for the Ben Seitz – Dan Soule 32 team, who easily picked up the feature win, and a day of anticpation and disappointments for Kyle Edwards and Dan Bowes, who were vying for the 2018 ISMA crown in a tight battle.
Oswego, NY (October 4, 2018) – It is not unusual to have the International Supermodified Series season title to go down to the wire, but this year’s chase is a little different. There are two relatively new names on top of the leaderboard. Epping, NH’s Dan Bowes sits just 16 points ahead of Bartlett, TN’s Kyle Edwards; neither of them has ever won an ISMA championship and both have just this season logged in their first career ISMA feature wins.
Delaware, Ontario - (August 18, 2018) – Mike Ordway Jr. and the Clyde Booth 61 team had had a particularly discouraging couple races, prior to the Ollie Silva Memorial at Lee USA Speedway on August 10, especially at the Sandusky Hy-Miler where Ordway was the defending race champion. But, they would not stay down too long as attested to by the fact that Mike dominated the 75-lapper at Lee taking the lead at the beginning, picking up a Shea Concrete $1000 halfway bonus along his way to a wire to wire victory. His victory at Delaware Speedway on Saturday was not a cookie-cutter of the Lee win, but more of his racing acumen coming to play as he worked his way up from ninth to the front on lap 68 to take this victory.
Epping, NH (Sept. 8, 2018) – The 53rd running of the traditional Star Classic was a poignant one for the nineteen ISMA supermodifieds on hand who had come to run and possibly win the race named for the man who helped develop the class he so loved and brought it to a new level of excellence. Bob Webber Sr., after fighting a vicious illness for some time, passed away in January of 2018 and his family immediately named the race he founded and continued for many years at the New Hampshire oval, in his honor.
Oswego, N.Y. (August 13, 2018) - The ISMA contingent is starting a whirlwind couple weeks with shows at Lee USA which hosts the annual Ollie Silva Memorial race and then moves south to New London Waterford Speedbowl for their traditional Wings and Wheels. There will be little time after that to prepare for the final Delaware Speedway program and to the conclusion of the Lennox Memorial Bonus Point Fund which was announced earlier this season.
Oswego, NY (Sept. 1, 2018) - Saturday night's Jack Murphy Memorial Super Nationals at Oswego Speedway featured more than a little drama with both excitement and heartbreak, some of which started prior to the race's green flag. But in the end Ohio's Timmy Jedrzejek stood in victory lane for his fifth Super Nationals victory of his career and his seventh career-Oswego winged win overall.
The win was a popular one as attested to by the thunder of applause that erupted from the large crowd on hand, as he pulled into victory lane. The driver of the Lane 97 was ecstatic with the win, but also paused to dedicate the race to one who was not there to share the moment this night.
Lee, NH (August 10, 2018) – Mike Ordway Jr. took the Clyde Booth 61 out to the lead of the Ollie Silva Memorial at Lee USA Speedway Friday night and was really never at risk of losing it. Ordway led every lap, picked up $1000 halfway leader bonus sponsored by E.F. Shea concrete and flew to the finish after that. The large crowd on hand voiced their approval of the win by the “hometown” boy who ran a great race to claim the prize. When the announcer chided Mike a little about being a “Mainer”, Ordway's response was “It doesn't matter where I moved to, I'll always be from Fremont!.”

Sandusky, OH (July 28, 2018) – What was possibly the largest Hy-Miler 100 crowd in the Jaycox era at Sandusky Speedway, came to see a race that was anticipated to be a great one. Dave Shullick Jr., a second place finisher of Friday's Fast Forty, amidst some controversy, claimed his third win of the prestigious event, leading almost half the way after taking the point from Trent Stephens.
The story of the race might well have been the incredible run by Michael Barnes in the Vic Miller 11.
