Kody Graham Untouchable in Oswego Speedway Main

Kody Graham Leads all 50 Laps in Sunday Show at Oswego  Speedway

 OSWEGO, NY (August 18, 2014) – The last time a Oswego Speedway supermodified event was postponed to a Sunday; a Graham drove to victory lane.  This past Sunday it happened again, as Kody Graham drove the Xtreme chassis No. 90 to Turning Stone Resort Casino Victory Lane in dominant fashion, leading all 50-laps, as a part of Oswego County Federal Credit Union and Bosco’s Famous Italian Sausage Night at the Races.

Graham started the main event from the outside pole position, and charged to the lead by the first corner.  From there Graham cruised to victory, slicing through lapped traffic with relative ease, earning his third career Novelis Supermodified main event win at Oswego Speedway in a green to checkered finish, completed in just under 15-minutes.

Michael Barnes and Randy Ritskes tried all they could to chase down the race leader, but fell short, with last week’s winner Joey Payne and championship leader Otto Sitterly finishing the top five positions. Continue reading
