Story By: CAMDEN PROUD / OSWEGO SPEEDWAY – OSWEGO, NY – For the first time in 28 years, Oswego Speedway is set to begin its 71st season of racing with the return of the historic Port City 150 serving as the lid lifter on Memorial Day Weekend; Saturday, May 28, 2022.
One of the most storied events in Speedway history, Port City Weekend was on the schedule every season from 1974 to 1994 and consisted of extra distance combination specials for the Oswego Supermodifieds, Tour Modifieds, and eventually the Limited Supers.
The modern day ‘Port City’ will feature the 75-lap Jim Shampine Memorial for Novelis Supermodifieds, 40-lap Tony White Memorial for Pathfinder Bank SBS, and 35-lap Memorial Weekend Special for J&S Paving 350 Supers, which will again combine together for the 150-lap total.
‘Opening Week’ will continue seven days later on Saturday, June 4, with the first of three Oswego Winged Super Challenge events, which will bring in teams from both ISMA and MSS, as well as many of the weekly Novelis Supermodified competitors.
Pathfinder Bank SBS and J&S Paving 350 Supers will be back on the schedule for week two to make for a three division card alongside the Winged Supers, which are already penciled in for the remaining two Winged Challenge shows on July 9 and August 13.
Oswego Speedway’s 2022 schedule will be released in its entirety this Friday. It features a full slate for Novelis Supermodifieds, Pathfinder Bank SBS, and the J&S Paving 350 Supers, plus the three Winged Challenge Series events.
Driver registration for Oswego Speedway’s 2022 season will open on Saturday, January 1.
