In 2022, the top talent in supermodified racing saw three top events that would vent into today’s future!  We are excited to share with the racing community that The International Supermodified Association (ISMA) and the Midwest Supermodified Series (MSS) will join forces in providing the BEST possible racing action in 2023. 

For the first time ever, both sanctions will come together for the 2023 season as an ISMA/MSS merged series with a top event schedule that the fans will not want to miss.  We will take what each group is strong in and make one strong big block supermodified series that will be identified as ISMA/MSS as agreed upon by the car owners.  We will have one schedule, set of rules, point fund and CHAMPION!

We just completed our fifth season as the Midwest Supermodified Series with our first repeat Champion. As we compare 2021 to the 2022 season, we went from seven races to twelve. Returning sponsors included: Perfection Fabricators, Hoosier Tires, Precision Welding, Jim Valentine, Quest-Restoration, Adkins Glass, and Fourth Turn Crazies. We picked up Co-Series Sponsor Environmental Chambers & Ovens Mechanical Inc. Ed McKnight and both Reed Salvage along with MJ Griffith Paving supported our Lorain Raceway Park Super Crown Nationals. We are so grateful for all of these sponsors along with all of our T-Shirt Sponsors and their contributions. Hard to race without sponsorship!  If interested in supporting the Midwest Supermodified Series in 2023 please contact us.

We had two new additions to our schedule this past season. The inaugural Super Crown Nationals at Lorain Raceway Park and Berlin Raceway, which are two weekends where the teams and fans will want to be sure and put on your “Must Attend” 2023 calendar!!!  The plan will be to have our 2023 Scheduled released no later than the end of the year. 

Few Season Highlights:

  • Back-to-back championships for #11 Doug Edwards Owner/Kyle Edwards Driver.

Top Five (5) Points Finishers:

2nd #7 John Nicotra Owner / Otto Sitterly Driver

3rd #88 AJD Racing Owner / AJ Lesiecki

4th #22 McVetta Racing Owner / Mike McVetta Driver

5th #19 Steve Stout Owner / Trent Stephens Driver

Our top five points finishers will be recognized at our Year End Celebration on Saturday, October 29th at the Parish Life Center on Abbe Rd. in Sheffield, OH.  We will begin the afternoon with an Owner’s Meeting to review 2023 Schedule, Owner Payouts, Expense Ledger/Checkbook, and discuss the Rule Book. If you are a new team or are considering becoming a Supermodified Owner, we encourage you to make plans to join us. Please contact Lori May for specifics. 

We would like to “reluctantly” congratulate Bob Neubauer on his retirement from announcing and son Doug on his continued racing “addiction” from announcer to Car Owner/Driver. These two will be terribly missed up in the tower on race day. Your passion and knowledge about supermodifieds made our sport that much more entertaining. The only good news with all of this, is that we will still get to see you both on race day!  

On behalf of all the MSS Owners, Drivers, Officials and Social Media Team, we would like to thank the fans, sponsors, and all the tracks that supported us this past season. We would like to congratulate our season champion #11 Edwards Racing, Owner Doug Edwards and Driver Kyle Edwards once again for their back-to- back championships and look forward to celebrating their accomplishment at the end of October.

We will continue to keep you informed through our Facebook page (Midwest Supermodified Series) and Website (midwestsupermodifieds.com) during this off season.

Thank you all for your support!
