Veteran drivers Otto Sitterly and Jay Andrews took checkered flags on opening night at Oswego Speedway Saturday.
Sitterly snuck the lead away from David Gruel with four laps to go in the 50-lap supermodified race and drove away for the win while Andrews led from lap 2 and went on for career win number two in the SBS division.
Brian Sobus and David Gruel led the 25 supermodifieds to the green flag with Gruel getting the bite on the outside taking the lead. The outside line got the better start.
While Gruel led, outside row 2 starter Davey Hamilton followed him through and ran in Gruel’s tire tracks early on.
Joe Gosek and Randy Ritskes went to the high side to get through early race traffic while Jeffrey Abold and Michael Barnes went low to move forward. A pair of early cautions slowed the race early on with pit stops abundant during the slowdown. The most significant pit stop saw defending champ Joe Gosek pull the 00 pitside as the steering went away on the 00.
Oswego County Legislator Mike Kunzwiler wants an answer as to why members of the Democrat caucus did not receive the financial disclosure form required to be filled out by elected officials and appointed personnel.
Kunzwiler and the other Democrats said they received a letter from the county ethics board stating that the legislators disclosure forms had not been received and are due.
When Legislator Doug Malone attempted to address the absence of the form during Monday’s meeting of the legislature’s Strategic Planning and Government Committee, he was not allowed to speak to the issue because it was not on the agenda (see related story).
