Triple Crown Series Awards to be presented at Turning Stone Resort Casino During ISMA Championship Banquet
OSWEGO, NY (March 18, 2017) – The Shea Concrete Triple Crown Championship Series presented by ASI Racewear will present its nearly $30,000 point fund as well as its Bentley Warren Supermodified Driver of the Year and Jim Shampine Supermodified of the Year trophies at the annual ISMA Championship Banquet held at the Turning Stone Resort Casino on Saturday, November 18.
“With the ISMA and Oswego banquets usually just a week or two apart it made sense to gather everyone at Turning Stone so the ISMA contingent did not have to travel to New York State twice in a three-week period,” said Dan Kapuscinski, TCCS promoter. “Banquet time is a great time. I have enjoyed hosting each of these banquets for the last several years, and this year’s ISMA celebration will have a nice bonus with the TCCS purse and trophies being presented. I’m looking forward to handing out the awards and celebrating what we all hope is a successful season.”
Point Fund and Awards to be Handed Out
The TCCS point fund money will be awarded at the banquet and while drivers or teams do not have to compete in all 10 events, they must compete in at least three TCCS races on each series to be eligible for the year-end point payout that will pay at least $27,000.
Two of the special awards handed out at the ISMA banquet in November will be the Bentley Warren Driver of the Year and the Jim Shampine Supermodified of the Year.
Half of the point fund will go to the TCCS Bentley Warren Driver of the Year championship, with points awarded only to the driver competing. Drivers in this championship can run as many race cars as they wish, on either series, to collect points.
The other half of the point fund will go to the TCCS Jim Shampine Supermodified of the Year championship, with points awarded only to the car entry. Supermodifieds eligible for this part of the championship must run as the same built Supermodified in all entered TCCS events, on either series, wing and non-wing.
Four Drivers Now Registered
As of March 18 four drivers have registered to take on the challenge of the TCCS campaign, which will see five non-wing supermodified events at Oswego Speedway and five wing events on the ISMA tour including races at Lancaster Speedway, Stafford Speedway, Sandusky Speedway, and Star Speedway.
The supermodified duo of Dave Shullick Jr. and Otto Sitterly will join forces with Bodnar Racing and Nicotra Racing to take on the Bentley Warren Driver of the Year part of the series. Both drivers will contend in Bodnar mounts for the ISMA events while driving Nicotra roadsters in the Oswego shows.
Jeff Abold and Dave McKnight will also contend for Bentley Warren Driver of the Year but they plan to do so in the same supermodified at all TCCS events they enter, making them eligible for another $6,000 prize in the Jim Shampine Supermodified of the Year category.
