OSWEGO, NY (May 1, 2014) – Oswego Speedway is proud to present its race fans with an opportunity to win a ride in the Canale Insurance 2-Seat Supermodified, while supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Raffle tickets will be available on Saturday night at the Eagles Fan Club booth and in the novelty stand as a part of the Speedway’s 64th annual opening night celebration, with the chance to win a ride in the popular Oswego Speedway Canale Insurance 2-Seat Supermodified.

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide).
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Foundation funds more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support.
