Midwest Supermodified Series (MSS) announcing year two schedule of which Owners have requested a max 8 race schedule. MSS works very closely on scheduling with the International Supermodified Association (ISMA) so that cars from both series are able to support one another when able, and so can the fans!We are extremely proud of the fact that all four race tracks on our first inaugural season have invited us back for a year two and we have added two new venues and two new states to our 2019 schedule. 2019 MSS’s schedule will take us to race tracks in the states of; IN, OH, MI and NY!
We are so thankful that Lorain County Speedway will remain a race track, as Supermodifieds have so many years of history (thanks to the Bonnema’s) as do many other racing series. Thank you SO MUCH Kevin Mileti for buying LCS and keeping it a race track! We are looking forward to our June 8th event and our grand finale Championship Night September 21st at Lorain County Speedway. We would like to thank the Jaycox’s for their continued support over these many years at Sandusky Speedway for our Sat., July 6th event. John and Kelley Chapman of Midvale Speedway are entering into year two with owning this speedway and have asked us back to be part of their 2019 schedule for a July 20th event. We both can relate that it is a good feeling to get that first year in with hopefully many good years to follow!
Supermodifieds are making their way back to the state of Michigan, first time since 2012. Michigan fans will be happy to learn that Joe DeWitte of Auto City Speedway (1/2 Mile Track) located in Clio, MI will be adding us to his schedule for an August 3rd event. It has been quite a dry spell for Supermodifieds racing in the state of MI, so we are thrilled to be adding a MI track to our schedule. We have received many inquiries from MI fans this past season to please come their way, well their wishes have been answered and we are “SUPER” excited to be heading this way in 2019.
We have two racing events on our 2019 schedule that are a $3,000 to win and $800 to start, 40 Lap events. Daniel Hutchinson of Hillside Buffalo Speedway 3/8 Mile Track (formerly Holland International Speedway) located in Holland, NY will be our other new venue and hosting an event on Sat., June 22nd . This will be MSS’s first venture into the state of NY and we are excited to be part of Hillsdale Buffalo Speedways schedule. Dave Duncan Promoter for the Fall Brawl Lucas Oil Raceway event planning on hosting again, but a few weeks earlier, September 14th and has invited MSS back to participate in this event. Both of these promoters already working on making these a jam packed, fun-filled events for everyone. We welcome all ISMA and Oswego teams to all of our events, but especially both of these and do hope when you are planning your 2019 racing schedule, these two will be included!
MSS again in the upcoming season will be focusing on getting young children to become Supermodified fans by way of our Bike Giveaway (Courtesy of Randal, Courtney & Spencer Adkins of Adkins Glass), Junior Grand Marshall Program, Frisbee Toss and Driver Autograph Sessions. We will be using MSS Live with the help of Tim Church and Kevin Sears to keep the adults “in the know.”
All of our Support Team will be returning in 2019. Bob and Doug Neubauer will continue to be the “voices of MSS” on race day. Social Media Team Tim Church, Jim Davidson and Kevin Sears will continue to keep us updated on Facebook, Twitter and Website (including photographs). Jeff and Dawna Lickfelt (Race Directors), Denny Watson (Tech Inspector) and Dan Zirzow (Pit Steward) will continue in their roles to make race day run as smooth as possible.
We will round out 2019 with an end of the season celebration on November 9th at The Lodge located in New Russia Township. Lester and Dee Morris (long time Supermodified Fans) have kindly stepped up and provided the deposit for this venue and Gina McVetta (Co-Owner #22 2018 MSS Championship Team) has graciously volunteered to take lead with the planning of this celebration.
MSS Owners are especially appreciative of the track promoters including us on their 2019 schedules and MSS Support Team for coming out again another year. We look forward to 2019, seeing our current fans and making some new ones!
