OSWEGO, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — We’re closing in on Super Dirt Week! The City of Oswego is buzzing with excitement already and getting into the racing spirit.
Mayor Billy Barlow says they are trying to grow the event every year and increase community support. One way they’re doing that is by hanging banners and checkered flags all along State Route 104 and in the downtown area.
This is Super Dirt Week’s fourth year in Oswego and Barlow says he hopes to hang onto the event for as long as they can!
“I prefer Super Dirt Week to stay here for the rest of time. It’s helpful to the economy, it really showcases Oswego Speedway, brings people who otherwise probably wouldn’t visit Oswego to Oswego and they spend money here and see what we have to offer and are more apt to come back for another occasion in the future, so we love it,” Mayor Barlow said. “We’re a racing town. We have a rich history with the Oswego Speedway and I think the locals support it as much as the folks who travel from other areas do.”
The campgrounds open Sunday. Cars will be on the track Wednesday and racing runs from the 9th through the 13th.
