    I don't think Preece is going

    I heard Szegedy might, but then again I heard he's coming to Riverhead for the 77 lapper.

    I heard Pennink might. Of the 3 , I'm guessing he might be the only one.

    No facts here, just what I've heard.

    Worm - just because certain drivers choose not to run does not mean it is'nt the "real RoC". Andy Harpell has done an excellent job with the event, Oswego is a great facility that's getting even better, and the racing in the "200" has been good. 30 - 40 mods will qualify this Sat., and many of them are some of the top names in Modified racing: Hirschman, Hossfeld, the Leatys, Fidanza, Rudolph, Paulus, Putney, Hebing, Zeiner, Hanbury, throw in a WMT regular or 2 and you've got the makings of an awesome field. Give the race a chance - it's my favorite event of the year and I attend several WMT races annually.

    1991 had about 100 modifieds try out for the 52 car field. Drivers from all over the northeast were at this event, and previous races there. Oswego, although a great race and track, can't compare to those Pocono races. The majority of racers, even as you mention above, are RoC/northern tier drivers. The great Race of Champions, as it was, is not that anymore unfortunately.
    Also notice the amount of different leaders:
    1991 RoC Pocono
    2011 RoC Oswego

    Moving the race to Flemington is what took a lot of the lustre off of the RoC. The move to Oswego was just unable to recapture what had already been lost. Flemington was a great track, but it wasn't a neutral site since they raced mods there weekly. If you want proof, just look at who won those RoCs at the square.
