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.

An Article 78 proceeding filed against Oswego County Clerk George Williams will continue Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. at the Oswego County Court House.

APS is suing Williams for his policy of charging fees to research criminal court records. State law allows a $5 fee to be charged for each name searched for every two years provided the search is certified. APS alleges that Williams has been charging for all searches, including those that are not certified.
