Re(3): One Significant Supermodified Posted on 4/10/2015 at 12:11:20 PM by Jeff L.
I would think the Shampine Offset would be #1
How about the Graves Chassis? There were so many Graves Chassis (and Graves copies), I'd have to think that's up there.
90's Allegresso (Dunigan) Chassis' were certainly very dominant
In the present era, only 3 come to mind, the Hawk, the Extreme, and the Bodnar. All three of those are currently driving innovation now (causing other frame builders to come out with new/modified designs)
Regarding Hawk & Extreme - I would like to see a list of wins at Oswego (non-winged) from the past 10 years by some other chassis than Hawk or Extreme. Clyde Booth has been sucessful there, but I can't think of many races won by any other chassis. What frame did Randy Ritskes (Rayvals #95) have when we won the opener in 2007? What about when Rayvals (#94) won in 2008?
There are something like 5-6 generations of Bodnar Chassis still actively running. I know I'm missing info here, and I know people on this board will correct me, but here goes my guess:
- roughly 89-90 Gen - this was the white/blue/pink USIC Shirey #72 (now Don Johnson yellow #24)
- early 90s Gen - previous 22 McVetta car (original Hal Gerold black TGI-Fridays #4, Red Dog #22, Frickers #7, Stout 83/19, Smith 09, probably missing another reference)
- late 90s Gen - 7/77 May cars (orignal Thunder & Lightning 33/38)
- 2005 Gen - 19/49 Stout cars & Lane 97 (former Petro 33)
- 2013 Gen - 94/95 Shullick cars Replies:
