With the demise of the Ohio State 500 at the end of the 1977 racing season, there was no marquee event on the local supermodified calendar. Out of the ashes of the old Sandusky Classics and Ohio State 500 races emerged the Hy-Miler Nationals, the first of the supermodified triple crown. Here is a brief look back at the Hy-Miler over the years.

1978...Larry Boos took over as promoter of Sandusky Speedway and Dave Shullick took over as the dominant driver. The Shullick-Jim Bodnar association would be the dominant Supermodified team for the next three years. They kicked it off by winning the Sanduky 100 over Chuck Ciprich (the dominate New Yorker, in Ron Buckner's #36) and Gary Allbritain.

1979...Dave Shullick dominated every race in the Midwest, driving the Jim Bodnar S&W Blacktop Special, but it literally went up in smoke at the Supermodified Nationals. With just a handful of laps to go the gold #94 roadster erupted in smoke ending his quest for two in a row. Gary Allbritain captured the event in the "Flyin 5" roadster over Steve Gioia and Ed Bellinger.

1980...After the disappointment of the previous season, Shullick and Bodnar were out to redeem themselves in the 1980 thriller. Driving an all new S&W hot orange #94 Shullick showed the field the way around. He was not alone, as Warren Coniam and Jim Shampine were dogging his heels the entire distance. The Shullick and Bodnar team split at the conclusion of the season leaving a wide-open local scene for the following year.

1981...It was the year of the "Young One," as Doug Heveron dominated everywhere the Supers ran and Sandusky was no exception. Jamie Moore led early in the event before a tangle with a lapped car sent him violently into the turn two wall. From then on it was all Heveron in the event. Steve Gioia and Shampine trailed. This year marked the only time Jim Shampine carried a Checkered flag at Sandusky, as bad luck plagued his every visit. "The Pine" captured the Sprint\Roadster Showdown on Friday night for his only Sandusky win.

1982...In the Bible David slew Goliath. At Sandusky, Gus Olexson and Bruce Robey slew everybody. This year everybody played by Sandusky's rules, meaning the potent roadsters were running with smaller wings. It proved interesting right off the bat. On Friday night Bruce Robey passed Dave Shullick on the last lap of the Sprint\Roadster showdown and took the Clarence Miller Sprinter to victory lane. If this wasn't enough, the eternal underdog, Gus Olexson pushed the Leonard Ceiling #12 roadster to the front holding off the repeated challenges of Todd Gibson for one of the most popular wins ever at the Speedway.
