OSWEGO, NY (January 9, 2013) – On the heels of another championship season in Oswego Speedway’s Novelis Supermodified division, the honors continue to mount for Canajoharie, NY driver Otto Sitterly.  Fresh of his fifth career Oswego Supermodified title and third victory in the Budweiser International Classic, Sitterly and his Nicotra Racing machine have been placed on the cover of the January issue of Speed Sport Magazine.

National Speed Sport News has been America’s trusted source for motorsports news and information since 1934, and Speed Sport Magazine is the latest chapter in its legacy which has pressed on for over 75 years.

Honored as ‘King of Oswego’ on Speed Sport’s cover, Sitterly is further featured within the magazine’s pages with a story authored by former Supermodified driver Keith Shampine.  Now an integral member of the World Karting Association’s marketing efforts, Shampine is a nephew of the late Oswego Supermodified legend Jim Shampine, whose records Sitterly is now inching upon.
