  • Former Ohio Sprint/Supermodified Track Champions - HELP!

    Hey everyone, I'm attempting to compile a definitive list of Ohio dirt sprint car (or if old enough supermodified) track champions throughout the state. I currently have all of Fremont, Attica, and Wayne County's and a couple of Atomic's off personal knowledge but am going to really need help and guidance of where to look for information. If any of you know who won or where to look for information it would be appreciated. Here's what I have thusfar.

    Toledo Speedway ran Supermodifieds ( which included some Sprint Cars ) in 1960,61,62,63, and part of 1964, before a promoter change which shifted the program to fendered cars for the rest of eternity. Track was dirt in 1960 and 1961 and track champs were Al Beale, Toledo, Ohio ( 1960 ), and Dick Carter, Saginaw , Michigan ( 1961 ). Track was paved soon after the season began in 1962 and track champ was Gordon Dukes, Findlay, Ohio. 1963 and 1964 were the last 2 seasons of open wheeled racing on a weekly basis, but there is some uncertainty and debate as to who the track champs were in '63 and '64, so I'll abstain. If you visit Sandusky Speedway's website I believe they have a long list of track champs by class. Keep in mind that when tracks ran Supermodifieds back in the 1960's and 70's, most tracks had cars compete with them that were Sprint Cars which had a piece of thin sheet metal covering the top of the cage. Toledo and suburbs had 2 other tracks prior to Toledo Speedway, but they ran in the 1950's, when the cars were called " Modified Stock Cars ", which was the predecessor of Super Modifieds.

      I can help you a little ... While looking thru Tony Martins book "Echoes of Thunder in the Hills" I saw a few of Atomics track champs ... In 1967 Dean Knittel ... 1968 it was Audie Swartz ... In 1977 it was Charlie Swartz ... And in 1972 and 1963, it was Jim Meeker.

        Larry Reese can help you with Millstream Speedway track champions. Eldora should be pretty easy to find. Oakshade ran sprint cars til the mid to late 90's. It would be interesting to see who all has won championships. Good luck and I'm looking forward to seeing some of the champs from Mansfield, Bryan and Lakeville.
