OSWEGO, NY – Super Stock racing will return to Oswego Speedway this season in form of the Dave London Memorial presented by Midstate Basement Authorities for the New York Super Stock Series presented by Sunoco.
Dave London Memorial XII will be held on Bud Classic Weekend, Friday, August 30. To help promote this special occasion, Midstate Basement Authorities owner Eric Leach will have his No. 29 Super Stock on display at this weekend’s Syracuse Motorsports Expo.
The Syracuse Motorsports Expo will be held March 9 and 10 inside the Center of Progress Building at the New York State Fairgrounds. Oswego Speedway will have a display each day, featuring the Midstate Basement Authorities Super Stock along with Barry Kingsley’s 350 Super.
