Suspension-less Supermodified, I scarfed this from SuperDave's message board. This was a post by SuperDave featuring an article by Duane Depuy. I found it very interesting and thought I should preserve it here.
DW and Bentley Warren, Darrell was at Oswego for an ASA show in July of 1985. A short match race was arranged for the two in the two Bowley cars. Warren won that race by a nose after some scorching 25 second laps! Here's another shot - of DW hanging out in the pits..
Darrell Waltrip accuses Ben of sabotaging his plug wires in the match race. I think that's Mark Martin to Ben's right. Bobby Allison also ran this ASA show which was won by Dick Trickle with Alan Kulwicki second.
The Hite built 4wd rear engine car lives! I was told that this is the same chassis that raced at Oswego almost 30 years ago, shown here on july 10th competing in the open competition show. It is now owned by Dave Hollinger, who purchased it only 9 months prior to this event, having found it sitting in a barn! Gene Lee Gibson looked very fast and capable of winning but mechanical woes sidelined the car early in the feature. (7-10-04) Here's another shot -as the Hollinger team scrambled to get the car ready. and another... -Hollinger says he would like to bring it back for next years open comp show.
Joe Gosek, This was shot during the July 10th open comp show.
Joe Hawksby Jr debuted this beautiful machine on July 10th and was very quick right off the trailer, It was the first new Hawk chassis. Greg Furlong ordered one for the following year and dominated with it!
Bill Sharkey took a hard ride over Joe Gosek and through Joe's cage, landed very hard causing a brief fire. This was the last we would see of the #7 in 2004, and Joe was very lucky to walk away from this. (7-17-04)
Clyde Booth's #61 is a work of engineering art. This car had 'em covered with Mike Ordway aboard in the 2004 running of the "Mr Supermodified" $10,000 to win event. (7-17-04)
the front end of the booth 61 looks more like an F1 car than a super with the airfoil shape of of the suspension and steering pieces and the high nose.
the cockpit has a little "door" for easier access to an exceptionally "enclosed" office.
The 61 team, feeling real good about themselves... and rightly so!
Joe Gosek was back in action in the Carson Car Mart #27 with his new roll cage, but had a steering linkage bolt break during the feature causing a scary moment... He stopped the car safely. (Aug 14th)
The track Championship for Tim Gareau may well have been won right here in the pits. A first heat tangle on twin 30s night could well have cost him the points lead, but his team was not to be denied. The axle was replaced and other damage repaired in time and as they say... the rest was history! (he got a 9th and an 11th) (Aug 14th)
Jeff Holbrook prepares to push off in his Deals on Wheels #35. (Aug 14th)
Bob Bond gets into the foam in turn 3 on Aug 21st. He came back to win a very competitive 13 car consi as a strong field of Supers were on hand.
Hal Latulip was part of a large field of Supers that showed up Aug 21st as many teams try to get set up for the upcoming Classic.
Kelly Miller, up from the Street Stock ranks, looked very smooth in his first night of competition at "the big O". This is a former Jeff West machine.
Ray Graham Jr. looked real strong in the second feature Aug 21st, regaining the lead from Joe Gosek before finally settling for second.
Greg Furlong hooks up on the high side of Jenny Chesbro. (8-21)
Tim Snyder eyes the low side of the Goutermout 77 entering turn 3. (8-21)
Danny Kapuscinski works the high side of Ray Graham Jr. and the Furlong 72 looks to follow during heat 3 action. (8-21)
Tim Gareau shown here after finishing 3rd in the regular 45 lap feature on Aug 21st. This capped off a great night for Tim after winning the rain-delayed Aug 7th 50 lapper earlier in the evening.
Joe "Go" Gosek was the happy winner of the 45 lapper that evening. (8-21)
2004 Budweiser International Classic
Ron Wallace, pictured here with his wife Faye, was honored in ceremonies prior to the race. Ronnie was a fan favorite for many years and nailed down a track title in 1975. Sadly, we lost Ronnie on Sat. January 15th, 2005... thanks for the memories Ron.
Supercrew of the year award went to the Furlong racing team. The car in the foreground was Doug Heveron's ride this year.
Tim Gareau's car would not refire after the red flag on lap 181. The black flag was just being unfurled when it finally sputtered to life... He was running second at the time.
Coming down for the checkers on the final lap of the 2004 Classic. I had scoring duties for the Bliss/Page #65, so this is a "through the fence" shot of a sputtering (out of fuel) Greg Furlong trying to hold off a fast closing Bob Santos. Tim Gareau rides in third ahead of the very fast lapped car of Dave McKnight, who showed great sportsmanship by yielding to Gareau and Santos in the closing laps.
A wrecked but happy Greg Furlong shows a winning smile. Bobby Santos had come just a half car-length short at the line, but was "sorta" out of control by then and collided with Furlong soon after, which caused twin explosions of foam along the first turn wall!
Tech inspection after the race for the two top finishers... are these two cars legal now?!?
Doug Heveron finished 11th in the Furlong #22 after a late spin. He said he really enjoys the winged asphalt sprints he runs in Florida, but does miss the "big O"
Danny K's 85 joined the boneyard after getting into the marbles.
See the Tomsuper page to read my notes from the 2004 Classic, and see the final finishing order.
you can also go to the Tomsuper archives for recaps of the other races I attended during the 2004 season.
Joe Miller and his sharp looking #9 wound up in the foam on Aug 21st.
Bill Denner gets a little crossed up in front of Larry Muroski during the SS feature. (Aug 21st)
here is an example of the new Ford Focus midget. They are on the 2005 schedule and will compete on the newly resurfaced inner track.
JJ Andrews won the first Limited Super race ever run at Adirondack Speedway in 2001. Jay said "And a funny story about that burnout....that was my last. Not only did I over-rev it and bend a couple of valves, but I also broke the spool in the rear end. It cost a few bucks. Think I was excited?"
Rob Pullen of Oswego started his season early at the Syr Motorsports show. Tim Barbeau's #50 is in the background.
The Tobias Slingshot series made a couple of appearances at the big "O". These little bombs are chain driven and powered by a big Briggs&Stratten. They are surprisingly quick on the small oval.
