Hawk Jr

The Hawksby name appeared at the Oswego Speedway for the first time in 1977 when Joe Hawksby, Sr. began racing a Supermodified. Since then the Hawksby name has been become synonymous with Supermodified racing and the Oswego Speedway.

Joe Sr. raced for 20 years when, in 1977, he gave up the driver's seat to his son, Joe Jr. Joey, as the younger Hawksby is known, was not content with just racing Supermodifieds and in 2000 built his first Supermodified from the ground up.

While racing and building cars, Joey also found time to go to college. He graduated from Onondaga Community College in 2003 with an Associate Bachelor's degree in engineering. In 2005 he received his Bachelor's Degree in Engineering Technology from SUNY Oswego.
