Midwest Supermodified Series Sets Inaugural Calendar

MARION, Ohio – The recently formed Midwest Supermodified Series, which is in Northern Ohio, has put together a six-race schedule of events.

The schedule includes well known tracks familiar to supermodified racing, along with one track that has not seen supermodified action more than 20 years.

“The goal of our owners for the first year, was to put together a 5 to 8 race schedule,” said MSS’s Lori May. “We are keeping to their request with six. We are going to call this our inaugural season. A new and improved supermodified series whose goal is to bring cars to the race track and put good shows on for the fans. Since this is an owners organization, it is only us that can benefit from making it successful. We are going to be more connected with our fans than ever before. We will be helping to take responsibility for getting those stands filled, when we come to town.

“We look forward to kicking off our season at Sandusky Speedway on Saturday, May 12.”

The season starts on May 12 at Sandusky Speedway, with a return trip to Sandusky scheduled for July 7. In between are two events in June, the first being at Midvale Speedway on June 9 followed by an event at Lorain County Speedway on June 16, with a return trip to Lorain scheduled for Aug. 4. The season finale, in conjunction with the Champion Racing Ass’n, will be held as part of Lucas Oil Raceway’s Fall Brawl will be Sept. 29. Lucas Oil Raceway last hosted supermodified action in 1994.

“This will be our MSS Championship Night and taking place at a premier racing facility, so we are all really excited,” May said of the event at Lucas Oil Raceway. “Dave Duncan, the promoter for this event, is planning a jam packed couple of days with a lot of activity and excitement. I won’t let the cat out of the bag because he has put a lot of work into this event so far, but suggesting fans put this on their calendar because it will be an event you won’t want to miss.”
