OSWEGO — Oswego Kartway will host the Fall Frenzy 100 Friday, presented by Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions.
The Fall Frenzy 100 for PRO Clone 360 racers will join Oswego Kartway’s regular racing lineup, with action set to begin at 7 p.m.
Among the expected entries for the $500-to-win event are former 100-lap winners Thomas Montgomery, Chris Natoli, and Dan Kapuscinski.
Montgomery won last year’s 100-lap event at Oswego after passing early leader Dan Marsden. Natoli crossed the line in the third position, followed by Dominick Cianfarano and Seth Perrin.
Natoli, the 2014 champion, is the only driver to compete in every Fall Frenzy event since 2013. In that time, Natoli has racked up four top-five finishes.
Kapuscinski, the inaugural winner of the Fall Frenzy 100 in 2013, will be back in 2019 for just his third Frenzy attempt. His last effort in 2017 resulted in an eighth-place finish.
Marsden will be back behind the wheel again and will also add three other drivers to his lineup. Oswego’s State Clone Heavy track champion Devon Tonkin, Weedsport feature winner Madison Myers, and defending Atlantic City Gambler’s Classic Champ Kart champion Doug Stearly will join Marsden.
Another indoor driver will factor into the field, as Ryan Kendall makes his return to Oswego. Kendall finished second in last year’s Indoor Auto Racing Champ Kart championship.
Jeremy Tuttle has not competed at Oswego all season, but will be back today driving for George Bark and GEForce Racing Chassis. Tuttle is a former winner at Oswego, but has never competed in the Fall Frenzy 100.
Kartway track champion and Classic winner David Hackett Jr. will also be a driver to watch as he aims to make his first 100-lap start. Hackett won several main events this season at Oswego and currently leads the Clone Light standings at Weedsport Kartway.
Other top Oswego regulars expected to be in action include Seth and Tom Perrin, Russ and Rick Crisafulli, Zach Mooney, Jordan Sullivan, and Chance Weaver.
Oswego Kartway and Dan Kapuscinski Motorsports Promotions will pay a purse of $1,160 to the top five finishers with $500 to the winner, $300 to second, $200 to third, $100 to fourth, and $60 to fifth.
The fastest qualifier will get $100, and the night’s hard charger in memory of James Shutts will get $50.
Performance Manufacturing will also award $50 gift certificates to the race’s halfway leader and the first non-qualifier.
The Fall Frenzy 100 will be a big-pipe, open clutch, PRO Clone 360 event. Drivers in PRO Clone 360 must also run a second class during the night.
Two-lap time trials will lock in the first 10 positions of the 100-lap main event, with a B-Main to transfer four more karts to the finale. From there the highest driver in Oswego Kartway’s State Clone Heavy and State Clone Light points, that did not qualify, will be added to the field to make a 16-kart lineup.
Caution laps will not count, and there will be no halfway break.
Pit gates will open at 4:30 p.m., with a drivers meeting and hot laps to follow at 6 p.m.
