OSWEGO, NY (March 20, 2014) – Oswego Speedway officially announced this week that the Patfinder Bank Small Block Super Series will contend on a softer and wider Hoosier Racing Tire in 2014, similar to what the cars competed with before the 2009 racing season.

The Small Block Super division will return to using a 10” wide Hoosier Racing Tire, utilizing a 1057 compound for right side tires and a 1040 compound for left side tires.

For the last several years the Small Block Super class has competed on 9” Hoosier Racing Tires.
