Hello IOW friends,

Most of these photos I am sure many have already seen a time or two.

A few photos of Oswego Speedway's long racing history.

Supermodified veterans, champions, legends, and friends from here and there at the Big "O."

Have a good day...see you at the races

Photos by Rich - Arnold, Missouri


8 Jimmy Shampine - New York


2 Ronnie Lux - New York


0 Todd Gibson - Ohio


77 Herman Wise - Georgia


62 Baldy Baker - Ohio & 86 Mike Johnson - Indiana


3 "The Stecks Buick" - I am not sure of the driver during the 1965 Oswego Classic - time trials listed the driver as AJ Wilmack, but the final results listed the driver as Paul Womack


64 Dean Mast


54 Buzz Gregory


17 Ed Vanderlaan - Michigan

Great stuff Rich. Thanks for posting. Nothing better than seeing the supers either old or new.

I grew up watching Mike Johnson and Buzz Gregory. Mike, I think, has never gotten his due. He was a great racer in what ever car he raced, sprints or midgets. I was 7 years old when I saw Buzz win the 1969 Little 500.
