not forgotten . . .

Dick Jerrett Sr.


Mexico, NY
day.mo.year? - 27.Feb.1999


The easy going gas station owner was one of Oswego’s early racing pioneers. He was at the very first race in 1951 and found victory lane on the Oswego dirt in ’52 and again in August after the track was paved. But Jerrett was known more for his consistency than he was for his victories. In six years of competition from ’52 through ’57 Jerrett never finished lower than third in the points. He won the ’55 Track Championship without ever winning a feature. Jerrett registered 10 feature wins in his 10 year career at Oswego and 70 top five finishes. Jerrett came out of retirement to drive his son’s supermodified in the ’63 Classic and finished in 9th place the first time in a super.
