Oswego, NY - After extensive discussions with the owner of Adirondack Speedway, ISMA president Chuck Handley informed recently that the track could not fulfill their commitment of the August 4th ISMA race. Mr. Lyndaker cited numerous reasons including poor attendance at recent Adirondack events, track conditions after the ROC Modified Tour, the weak economy and low car count at his last two supermodified events at the upper New York State speedway.

"With all of Mr. Lyndaker's concerns" Chuck Handley said on Tuesday, July 23, "It was in the best interest of ISMA to allow Adirondack to cancel this show, even though ISMA believes that an ISMA show at Adirondack would be a huge success."

"ISMA, in its 28th year of sanctioning race events, must maintain the integrity of the purse structure at every track," said Handley, "Not only to protect ISMA competitors, but also the tracks that have sanctioned ISMA races throughout the years. We have tried in every way to make each and every event a success for both the fans and the competitors as well."

The racing on Saturday, August 3rd at Lancaster Speedway, which hosted the first ISMA race in 1974, will take place as scheduled. "We hope everyone will still come to Lancaster as this has always been great racing," concluded Handley. "It's a track where many first-time supermodified winners have been crowned, and this year could be another of those years."

Pit gates open at Lancaster at 2:00 pm with grandstands at 4:00 pm. Warmups begin at 4:00 pm with racing scheduled for 6:00 pm with the ISMA 50-lapper scheduled later that evening. Lancaster Speedway is located off Exit 49 of the New York State Thruway. Take Rt. 33 to Gunnville Road. Call 716-759-6818 or visit www.lancasterracing.com.
