OSWEGO, NY (August 26, 2014) – The first official main event of Oswego Speedway’s 58th annual Budweiser International Classic Weekend will be the Corr/Pak Merchandising Modified Classic 100 featuring the Race of Champions Modifieds on Friday, August 29.
Affectionately known as the “Ground Pounders”, the asphalt Modifieds have long been a staple of Budweiser International Classic Weekend and that tradition continues in 2014.
Current Race of Champions Modified point leader Chuck Hossfeld will lead the RoC contingent into the ‘Steel Palace’ on Friday night with top contender and defending Classic Weekend champion Matt Hirschman hot on his heels.
Hirschman continued his streak of domination at Oswego in May, as he drove the No. 60 to another Richie Evans Memorial 75 title over Hossfeld, Patrick Emerling, Andy Jankowiak, and Tyler Rypkema.
Hirschman and Hossfeld will look to continue their back and forth battle this season at Oswego Friday night, with an added 25 laps to settle the score.
A slew of other Modified standouts will be on hand to kickoff Budweiser International Classic Weekend, attempting to knock off both Hirschman and Hossfeld, including leading point contenders Jankowiak, Daren Scherer, Austin Kochenash, Emerling, Mike Leaty, Brian DeFebo, Nick Pecko, and Bryan Sherwood.
Individual seating is available for all three days of Budweiser International Classic Weekend, with three day ticket packages also available.
Three day general admission seating is $105, with three day reserved seating set at $115, and three day pit passes for $125.
Kids 5 and under are free throughout all of Budweiser International Classic Weekend with three day child admission for kids 6-16 available for only $35.
