LAST CHANCE TO TUNE UP FOR
SUNOCO RACE OF CHAMPIONS THIS SATURDAY NIGHT
AT THE OSWEGO SPEEDWAY IN THE RoC MODIFIED 100
This Saturday night at the Oswego Speedway the Race of Champions Dart
Asphalt Modified Tour will be running in the Roc Modified 100. This race
will be the final tune – up for the 59th Sunoco Race of Champions that takes
place at the same facility one week later.
The race also marks the final regular season point race for the RoC
Dart Modifieds. Going into Saturday defending RoC champion Matt Hirschman
leads the points by just 11 points over Rusty Smith. Mike Leaty is third in
points just 14 behind Hirschman, Eric Beers is fourth with 185 and Earl
Paules is fifth with 170. The second five finds Jan Leaty in sixth, Daren
Scherer in seventh, T J Potrzebowski in eighth, Billy Putney in ninth and
Jim Storace in tenth.
The first RoC Modified race this year at Oswego was a real
barnburner with Billy Putney holding everyone at bay until the right front
hub broke with two laps to go. That gave the lead to Ted Christopher who
held off Matt Hirschman by inches at the line for his first career Oswego
Also the race winner on this night will receive one of the final
two spots into the RoC All Star race that takes place on Saturday night of
Sunoco RoC Weekend.
Originally this race was slated to be only a 75 lap race but within
the last week the event has been extended to 100 laps. The additional 25
laps will help all Modified racing teams in getting set up for the big 200
lapper that takes place the following Sunday afternoon.
Pit gates open at ten in the morning on Saturday with hot laps and
grandstand gates opening at one in the afternoon and the first heat gets the
green at four in the afternoon. For more information on the show please
