Oswego Speedway

Oswego Speedway in New York may not be as well known as some of its larger cousins. But to International Supermodified Association winners like Dave Shullick Jr., it is a great track. Shullick has three wins under his belt at Oswego. (He also competes in the Midwestern Supermodified Association, where he has placed first many times.)

In 1951, George, Harry, and William Caruso took an old horse track and built the speedway on it. It was originally a three-eighths mile course, but in 1961 the Carusos enlarged it to the current five-eighths mile track. Oswego Speedway has hosted a weekly race since its inception. The second owners, Eric and John Torrese, recently implemented renovations such as a 20-car scoring pylon, luxury skyboxes, and an upgraded rear grandstand. It is sometimes called the “Indy of the East” because several winners of the Indianapolis 500 have raced at Oswego.

Oswego Speedway schedules its biggest event, the Budweiser International Classic Weekend, on Labor Day. The weekend consists of the Budweiser International Classic 200 for Novelis Supermodifieds; this class is named for a leading manufacturer of rolled aluminum products.

Dave Shullick Jr. has posted many wins in the supermodified racing divisions and is a three-time points winner in the Midwestern Supermodified Association. He also enjoys golf and boating.
