Oswego Speedway regulars Lou LeVea Jr. and Tony Pisa will each hold their 2019 Chicken BBQ Fundraisers this Saturday, April 27 in the cities of Oswego and Fulton.

LeVea, driver of the No. 83 WFO Racing Supermodified, will hold his event from 12pm to 5pm at Floody’s Bar located at 2095 State Route 48 in Fulton.

Chicken dinners will be available for $10 and include baked beans, salt potatoes, mac salad, a dinner roll and dessert provided by Kathy’s Cakes. Several raffle baskets and lottery boards will be on hand as well.

‘Little Dog,’ a second generation driver and seven year veteran of the class, again intends to return to the speedway weekly this season. He earned his first career heat race win last year, and notched a top ten in the point standings with five top ten finishes.

Pisa’s fundraiser will take place at Lighthouse Lanes located on Jim Shampine Drive adjacent to the speedway. His event will run between the hours of 3 and 7pm.

Dinners are available for $12 and include either quarter chicken or pulled pork plus salt potatoes, baked beans, and a dinner roll. Several basket raffles, door prizes and 50/50 items will be up for grabs at Pisa’s fundraiser as well.

Pisa is the 2017 Pathfinder Bank SBS ‘ROTY,’ or Rookie of the Year. He only competed at the very end of 2018 piloting the re-worked No. 89 for Greg O’Connor. Despite only driving the car on Classic Weekend, Pisa showed considerable improvement and speed. He hopes to run a full season in 2019.

Oswego Speedway’s 69th season of racing will begin on Saturday, May 25 with Jim Shampine Memorial Twin 50’s for the Novelis Supermodifieds plus the Tony White Memorial 35 for the Pathfinder Bank SBS and a full program for the 350 Supers. An Open Practice session takes place one week earlier on Saturday, May 18.

Tickets for all 2019 events, including Budweiser International Classic Weekend are on sale now and can be ordered by phoning the speedway box office at (315)-342-0646 or sending an email to [email protected]
