Otto Sitterly Featured in SPEED SPORT Booth at PRI Trade Show in Indianapolis

OSWEGO, NY (December 10, 2014) – Seven-time Oswego Speedway Novelis Supermodified track champion Otto Sitterly will be appearing in the SPEED SPORT booth to sign autographs and greet fans on Friday at 11 a.m. as a part of the Performance Racing Industry trade show in Indianapolis, IN.

National Speed Sport News is America’s most trusted motorsports news source since 1934, and is often described as “The Bible of Motorsports.”

Edited by the legendary Chris Economaki from 1950-2010, National Speed Sport News has been the authoritative voice of the sport, providing race coverage that is timely, reliable, and colorful.

In 2014 National Speed Sport News launched its first two national television programs on MAVTV.

SPEED SPORT MAGAZINE and SPEED SPORT alternated bi-weekly on MAVTV beginning last May, featuring in-depth reporting, features and editorial, and showcasing traditional forms of auto racing from across the country, including Oswego Speedway and supermodified racing.

Last season Oswego’s Jim Shampine Memorial, the $10,000 to win Mr. Novelis Supermodified, and the 58th annual Budweiser International Classic 200 were all featured nationally on SPEED SPORT.

Sitterly, who clinched his record tying seventh supermodified title at Oswego in ’14, drove to victory lane during two of the broadcasts winning the Shampine Memorial and the International Classic.

In return for his fantastic drives on SPEED SPORT last season, Sitterly will now be a featured guest in the SPEED SPORT booth on Friday at the world’s largest racing trade show – PRI.

Sitterly is also tentatively slated as a potential video interview guest with one of the most popular and knowledgeable journalists in racing, Robin Miller.

Now reporting for Racer Magazine and Racer.com, Miller is scheduling several video interviews at PRI with different auto racing figures from around the world.  Miller, who worked before at ESPN as a racing writer and reporter, and later for SPEED, is regarded as one of the top open-wheel and IndyCar journalists there is today.

Further information on any video interviews with Sitterly will be provided as they become available.

Over 1,100 companies will display the latest advances in racing products and race engineering during the annual PRI trade show.  Arriving from 70+ countries and all 50 states, buyers will scour displays in search of the latest in engine parts, suspension parts, data acquisition, safety gear, new metal alloys and coatings, machining equipment, and racing electronics.

Syrell Racing Supermodified on Display at BOCES Thursday

OSWEGO, NY (December 9, 2014) – The Syrell Racing No. 68  supermodified driven by 2014 Turning Stone Resort & Casino Favorite Driver Michael Barnes will be appearing Thursday at the Oswego County BOCES 10th grade orientation on behalf of the Advanced Metal Manufacturing class, formerly known as Motorsports Fabrication.

Advanced Metal Manufacturing, taught by supermodified car builder Joe Hawksby Jr., introduces students to the skills and training of design, machining, fabricating, and welding.  Using engineering drawing techniques and CAD-CAM software, students design projects starting with raw materials like steel, aluminum, and brass.  Students will then use machine tools and fabricating equipment to build projects.

The Syrell Racing supermodified was completed by Hawksby and Dalton Doyle, a graduate of the Motorsports Fabrication class, before the 2014 Oswego Speedway season.

Barnes drove the Syrell Racing, Hawk Chassis supermodified to two feature wins in 2014 on his way to an 8th place finish in the Novelis Supermodified driver standings.

The Syrell Racing machine will now be displayed with the hope of enticing more young students of today to become involved in learning a motorsports trade such as Advanced Metal Manufacturing, with the hope of introducing auto racing, Supermodifieds, and Oswego Speedway to the youth of the local community.
