OSWEGO, NY (August 30, 2013) – On an afternoon full of storylines during pole day qualifying for the Budweiser International Classic 200 at Oswego Speedway, none was more historical than that of Jessica Zemken looking to become the first woman to qualify for the richest Supermodified race in the world.

On Friday night, with a lap of 16.590 seconds at 135.624 mph, history was indeed made, as Zemken officially clocked in 10th quick locking herself into the starting field for Sunday’s 200-lapper which is set to take the green at 3pm.

After three full days of testing in the Corr/Pak Merchandising, Graham Racing No. 11 Supermodified, Zemken managed to shave over a full-second off of her lap times moving into the 16.6 second bracket before time trials.  The Sprakers, NY driver would save the best for last, setting her fastest lap of the week on her final lap of qualifying.

Upon entering the event, Zemken became just the third woman to attempt to qualify for the International Classic joining Sheila Hayes and Jennifer Chesbro.

Zemken joins 13 other drivers as locked in qualifiers from Friday night’s first round of time trials that are now guaranteed to start in the front seven rows come Sunday.
