The Race of Champions Dirt 602 Sportsman Modified Series returns to action Sunday, August 21 for the traditional running of the Pete Cosco Memorial.

The Pete Cosco Memorial has been a staple event for the Race of Champions Dirt 602 Sportsman Modified Series and returns for the 2022 season to honor and pay tribute to “one of the nice guys” in racing.

Pete’s grandson, Jordan Cosco of St. Catherines, Ontario-Canada, will be in the field honoring his Grandfather on Sunday. Cosco finished 6th in the first Race of Champions Dirt 602 Sportsman Series race on Friday, August 12 at Ohsweken Speedway.

“This is a race we always gear up for and try to put our best foot forward for,” stated Cosco. “We carry the 17c, which was always his number proudly on our cars. This Sunday is always a great night at Humberstone with a lot of memories, family and friends. We are looking forward to it.”

Cody McPherson of St. Catherines, Ontario will lead the Series to Humberstone on Sunday following his victory this past Friday night at Ohsweken Speedway. McPherson also won the Pete Cosco Memorial the last time the Race of Champions Series visited Humberstone in 2019.
