Oswego Speedway Ranks Fourth in Speed Sport Poll

Oswego Speedway Ranks Fourth Among America’s Favorite Race Tracks in SPEED SPORT Magazine Poll

OSWEGO, NY (March 31, 2015) – For the third consecutive season, Oswego Speedway has ranked in the top five of SPEED SPORT Magazine’s My Favorite Track of North America poll, finishing in the fourth place overall.

speed sport logoSPEED SPORT’s survey was conducted in late February through early March with the response being twice that received during last year’s poll and 10 times  greater than the inaugural poll in 2012.

For the fourth year running Rossburg, Ohio’s Eldora Speedway, owned by motorsports star Tony Stewart, claimed the top rating with Virginia International Raceway, Iowa’s Knoxville Raceway, Oswego Speedway, and Wisconsin’s Road America completing the top five positions in the poll.

Oswego Speedway was voted as the top asphalt oval in SPEED SPORT’s poll with Knoxville and Eldora being dirt ovals and both VIR and Road America, road courses.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to once again be included in the top five of this year’s SPEED SPORT, My Favorite Track poll,” said Oswego Speedway PR Director, Dan Kapuscinski.  “This year’s poll response was the largest ever, so to stay in the top five and join such esteemed facilities like Eldora, Knoxville, VIR, and Road America is fantastic. None of this would be possible without our amazing fans across the country that care so much about our facility and our sport of supermodified racing.”

Kokomo Speedway in Indiana ranked sixth overall with Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Pennsylvania’s Williams Grove Speedway tying for seventh ahead of Missouri’s Lucas Oil Speedway, and New Jersey Motorsports Park in the top ten.

  1. Thanks for this I posted about this poll last year and the fact that IMS had dropped over the years looks like it fell another place or two. It’s not even the highest ranked IndyCar venue. I’ll be writing a post on this too.


    1. Yeah, I think more people have become aware of the poll for one thing and more tracks are working to get out the vote. It’s free PR so they should be. I’m happy for The Big O, but I’ve not seen that this poll has helped weekly attendance. I can’t figure IMS not being higher, but it’s possible that they weren’t able to rally the troops. Will be looking forward to your post. Thanks for commenting. BG
