OSWEGO, NY (July 10, 2014) – After another night of rain last weekend, Oswego Kartway returns to action Friday night with the annual King of the Kartway title event with beautiful trophies on the line from Platinum Promotional.
All 13 of the Kartway’s divisions will be in action Friday, presented by RJ Kart Sales, battling for the right to wear the crown and be called King of the Kartway.
Friday’s action will also mark the first round of the Kartway’s Triple Crown Series, which also includes the August 1 Battle at the Bullring and the August 28 Kartway Classic.
With four championship events in the books for the 2014 season, drivers continue to put themselves in position for a run at the championship in their respective divisions.
Current championship point leaders include Josh Ostrander (Sr. Blue Clone), Joseph Ardizzone (Sr. Green Clone), Seth Perrin (Jr. Blue Clone), Madison Baum (Jr. Purple Clone), Jake Sivers (Stock Light), Eric Raponi (Clone Heavy), Paul Fountaine (Stock 425 & Clone 425), Nate Schultzkie (Clone Light), Nick Demling (BSP Clone), Chad Jacobson (Champ), and Alan Lane (Open).

The night’s first heat race will go green at 7:30pm.
Racing will again be lined up utilizing the Kartway’s handicap system, which will be based on full year handicap for the King of the Kartway. Time trials will not be run.
Kartway member entry fees will be $20 with non-member entries set at $23.
