Supermodifieds  


These images are arranged by date... oldest first.
  • Suspension-less Supermodified, I scarfed this from SuperDave's message board. This was a post by SuperDave featuring an article by Duane Depuy. I found it very interesting and thought I should preserve it here.
  • 1984 Eagle program cover - features track champ and Classic winner, Bentley Warren. This car is one of Iver's top six Oswego supermodifieds! More images from this Port City program can be seen here and here and here
  • DW and Bentley Warren, Darrell was at Oswego for an ASA show in July of 1985. A short match race was arranged for the two in the two Bowley cars. Warren won that race by a nose after some scorching 25 second laps! Here's another shot - of DW hanging out in the pits..
  • Darrell Waltrip accuses Ben of sabotaging his plug wires in the match race. I think that's Mark Martin to Ben's right. Bobby Allison also ran this ASA show which was won by Dick Trickle with Alan Kulwicki second.
  • Cliff Graves on a '85 Eagle program cover.
  • 1986 Richie Evans Memorial start, Joe Gosek came from fifth on the grid to win this 100 lapper. Other images (scanned from an Oswego Eagle) from this event include Gene Lee Gibson and Jamie Moore and Don Rammage, Garry Evans and Gary Allbritan.
  • A.J. Michaels on the cover of Open Wheel magazine in 1989.
  • Steve Gioia Jr and his new Nestle's Crunch #9 are ready for action. Alongside are Bob Smith's #27 and the 87 of Randy Ritskes. (1990)
  • Jamie Moore's former Shampine offset was still competitive in 1990, shown here at Owego NY for an ISMA show. This car is one of Iver's top six Oswego supermodifieds!
  • Another shot from the same ISMA show.
  • Dale Sharkey escaped with minor injuries, the car was broken in half during a '90 Classic qualifying race.
  • Tom Bliss with the former Gioia super - 1990 (Buddy Diehl's #57)

images from the 2004 season...
  • Bob Goutermout On the pace lap for the second semi during the July 10th 2004 "open competition" event at Oswego.
  • Bob Goutermout's machine... or what's left of it just a couple of laps later after hitting the main gate on the frontstretch. Bob was able to walk away.
  • Howard Page is ready to be pushed off for the feature under the watchful eye of crewman Randy Daratt . (7-10-04)
  • Bill Sharkey paces down the backstretch on July 10th, 04.
  • The Hite built 4wd rear engine car lives! I was told that this is the same chassis that raced at Oswego almost 30 years ago, shown here on july 10th competing in the open competition show. It is now owned by Dave Hollinger, who purchased it only 9 months prior to this event, having found it sitting in a barn! Gene Lee Gibson looked very fast and capable of winning but mechanical woes sidelined the car early in the feature. (7-10-04)
    Here's another shot -as the Hollinger team scrambled to get the car ready. and another... -Hollinger says he would like to bring it back for next years open comp show.
  • Doug Didero's brand new ride. (7-10-04)
  • Joe Gosek, This was shot during the July 10th open comp show.
  • Joe Hawksby Jr debuted this beautiful machine on July 10th and was very quick right off the trailer, It was the first new Hawk chassis. Greg Furlong ordered one for the following year and dominated with it!
  • Jenny Chesbroin her sharp Page built #33. (2004)
  • blurred but cool, kinda conveys the exciting atmosphere on a Saturday night at the "Big O"! Howard Page in the middle with Todd Stowell and Bob Magner. (7-10-04)
  • The Tim Gareau #5, this sharp machine led the points race as of 7-17-04.
  • Bill Sharkey took a hard ride over Joe Gosek and through Joe's cage, landed very hard causing a brief fire. This was the last we would see of the #7 in 2004, and Joe was very lucky to walk away from this. (7-17-04)
  • Clyde Booth's #61 is a work of engineering art. This car had 'em covered with Mike Ordway aboard in the 2004 running of the "Mr Supermodified" $10,000 to win event. (7-17-04)
  • the front end of the booth 61 looks more like an F1 car than a super with the airfoil shape of of the suspension and steering pieces and the high nose.
  • the cockpit has a little "door" for easier access to an exceptionally "enclosed" office.
  • The 61 team, feeling real good about themselves... and rightly so!
  • Bobby Bond's McLane sponsored #25. (7-17)
  • Tim Snyder, comin' right at you. Aug 14th action.
  • Tim Snyder takes a look on the high side of Otto Sitterly as they barrel into turn 3. (8-14-04)
  • Bob Goutermout pushes off. (8-14-04)
  • Jerry Curran and Vern LaFave's 97 run side by side. (8-14-04)
  • Todd Stowell and Dave Trytek also comin' right at you! From Aug 14th.  get the 1024x768 version.
  • Shawn Muldoon is a top runner these days.
  • Craig Rayvals had two former Mike Muldoon cars at his disposal.
  • Jamie Moore straps in to the Dave Lair-Jet. (Aug 14th)
  • Joe Gosek was back in action in the Carson Car Mart #27 with his new roll cage, but had a steering linkage bolt break during the feature causing a scary moment... He stopped the car safely. (Aug 14th)
  • The track Championship for Tim Gareau may well have been won right here in the pits. A first heat tangle on twin 30s night could well have cost him the points lead, but his team was not to be denied. The axle was replaced and other damage repaired in time and as they say... the rest was history! (he got a 9th and an 11th) (Aug 14th)
  • Jeff Holbrook prepares to push off in his Deals on Wheels #35. (Aug 14th)
  • same image as above - but larger (1024x768).
  • Gene Lee Gibson has a very cool paint job on his Steve miller 16. (Aug 21st)
  • Dan Kapuscinski goes to the high side of Pat Lavery . (Aug 21st)
  • Bob Bond gets into the foam in turn 3 on Aug 21st. He came back to win a very competitive 13 car consi as a strong field of Supers were on hand.
  • Hal Latulip was part of a large field of Supers that showed up Aug 21st as many teams try to get set up for the upcoming Classic.
  • Kelly Miller, up from the Street Stock ranks, looked very smooth in his first night of competition at "the big O". This is a former Jeff West machine.
  • Ray Graham Jr. looked real strong in the second feature Aug 21st, regaining the lead from Joe Gosek before finally settling for second.
  • Greg Furlong hooks up on the high side of Jenny Chesbro. (8-21)
  • Tim Snyder eyes the low side of the Goutermout 77 entering turn 3. (8-21)
  • Danny Kapuscinski works the high side of Ray Graham Jr. and the Furlong 72 looks to follow during heat 3 action. (8-21)
  • Tim Gareau shown here after finishing 3rd in the regular 45 lap feature on Aug 21st. This capped off a great night for Tim after winning the rain-delayed Aug 7th 50 lapper earlier in the evening.
  • Joe "Go" Gosek was the happy winner of the 45 lapper that evening. (8-21)

2004 Budweiser International Classic 

  • Ron Wallace, pictured here with his wife Faye, was honored in ceremonies prior to the race. Ronnie was a fan favorite for many years and nailed down a track title in 1975. Sadly, we lost Ronnie on Sat. January 15th, 2005... thanks for the memories Ron.
  • Supercrew of the year award went to the Furlong racing team. The car in the foreground was Doug Heveron's ride this year.
  • Front row qualifiers Ordway and Didero receive their awards.
  • A new track record of 16.642 was set by the high-flying Booth/Ordway team .
  • View from above of the slick Booth machine.
  • Otto Sitterly acknowledges the fans prior to the race. He too, would get caught up in the lap 181 mess.
  • Joey Payne, of Fairlawn, N.J Qualified 11th and ran strong until getting caught up in the lap 181 skirmish. The "Jersey Jet" wound up 18th.

  • Johnny Torrisse also missed the show after finding the foam in preliminaries.

  • Todd Stowell had a pretty good day, he started 8th and finished 5th.
  • Joe Gosek chases Johnny Payne during prelims. Joe finished 7th, and Johnny wound up 24th in the 200.
  • Howard Page hits the scales after his 3rd place run in the second heat.
  • The field set to roll, as seen from the grandstands.
  • Just some of the victims of the lap 181 pile-up.
  • Tim Gareau's car would not refire after the red flag on lap 181. The black flag was just being unfurled when it finally sputtered to life... He was running second at the time.
  • Coming down for the checkers on the final lap of the 2004 Classic. I had scoring duties for the Bliss/Page #65, so this is a "through the fence" shot of a sputtering (out of fuel) Greg Furlong trying to hold off a fast closing Bob Santos. Tim Gareau rides in third ahead of the very fast lapped car of Dave McKnight, who showed great sportsmanship by yielding to Gareau and Santos in the closing laps.
  • Greg Furlong on the podium again!.
  • A wrecked but happy Greg Furlong shows a winning smile. Bobby Santos had come just a half car-length short at the line, but was "sorta" out of control by then and collided with Furlong soon after, which caused twin explosions of foam along the first turn wall!
  • Tech inspection after the race for the two top finishers... are these two cars legal now?!?
  • Doug Heveron finished 11th in the Furlong #22 after a late spin. He said he really enjoys the winged asphalt sprints he runs in Florida, but does miss the "big O"
  • Danny K's 85 joined the boneyard after getting into the marbles.
  • See the Tomsuper page to read my notes from the 2004 Classic, and see the final finishing order.
