A.J. Emms Scores Runner-Up in First Trip to Jukasa Motor Speedway
Starting up front in the feature, A.J. Emms kept himself in position to challenge for the win all race long en route to a runner-up finish.

The OSCAAR Modifieds would only run a single heat on Saturday afternoon at Jukasa Motor Speedway, which Emms made the most of with a runner-up performance.

Drawing the pole position for the feature, Emms would fall in line in second shortly after the drop of the green flag. While he was able to stick with eventual race winner Gary McLean throughout the event, and challenge for the top spot on a mid-race restart, it wasn’t meant to be and he’d cross the finish line in second.

“Gary is doing an awesome job each and every week,” Emms said. “They definitely been the class of the field not just this year, but for a very long time. We’re very fortunate to be up here with him. I’m pretty proud of my crew. The handling went away at the end, but we got something we can work on for next week and we’re definitely proud to be here. To get a second place finish, especially here at Jukasa Motor Speedway – it’s a historic place and it means a lot to run upfront here.”

The compliments were well received from fans and fellow competitors for Emms following the race, including those heard from McLean.

“It was a great battle,” McLean spoke of the battle for the lead. “You know, A.J. had to miss last week due to an injury, and he’s back at it. He’s fast. He’s fast every week. The kid can drive a racecar. A lot of fun. I’d wish we get more guys like that who can drive them.”

The OSCAAR Modifieds will be back in action at Jukasa Motor Speedway on June 23 alongside the OSCAAR Hot Rod Series and Ontario Outlaw Super Late Model Series. Event details are located at https://www.jukasamotorspeedway.com/.

Emms Racing is proud to be supported by BAE Environmental, FMR Scrap Buyers, Artech Promotional Products, Klotz Canada, WIX Filters, Peter Built Racecars, TSS Top Shops, and Creecher’s Design for 2018.

MINI STOCK TOUR BRINGS “PASSIONE” TO SCOTIA SPEEDWORLD SATURDAY

 

(Dartmouth, NS - June 19th, 2018) - The MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour is setting up for one of their biggest races in their short two year history. The Tour heads to Scotia Speedworld outside of Enfield, Nova Scotia this Saturday for the Passione Flooring and Interiors 50. The race serves as the second round of seven on the Tour and approximately two dozen Honda Civics are expected to compete. The racing action begins on Saturday, June 23rd at 6pm and also includes the Nova Truck Centres Make a Wish 150 for the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour.

 

For many of the MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour drivers, Scotia Speedworld serves as their home race track. Scotia Speedworld may not have started the Mini Stock division in Atlantic Canada but the track’s Thunder division certainly laid the foundation for what has become the East Coast Mini Stock Tour. Defending Series champion Tim Webster (Beaver Bank), current point leader Dave Matthews (Kennetcook) and the Warren brothers (Matthew and Andrew, White’s Lake) have seven track championships and dozens of wins in the track’s Thunder division between them and have to be considered favorites in the Passione Flooring and Interiors 50.

 

To add to that total, the J.R. Lawson Racing entry will be driven by two-time Scotia Speedworld track champion and current Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour driver Stevie Lively (Shubenacadie).

 

The Scotia Speedworld Thunder division has produced four different winners in four races and all have signaled intentions to compete on Saturday. Neil Miousse (Kentville), Darren Flemming (Rawdon), Chris Hatcher (Beaver Bank) and Jesse Deveau (Greenwood) all know their way around the 3/10-mile oval and are looking for their second victories at home in 2018.

 

Drew MacEachern (Dartmouth), Mark Williams (Elmsdale), Joey Lawson (Porter’s Lake), Jason Pickles (Meaghers Grant) and David Hibbs (Upper Sackville) all have local race wins at the track in the past but are missing an MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour race win on their resume. They will look to add the Passione Flooring and Interior 50 trophy to their case after 50-laps on Saturday.

 

The field of former race winners at the track alone is impressive but when you add the deep talent that has limited to no starts at Scotia Speedworld with stacked racing resumes, the Passione Flooring and Interiors 50 shapes up as an instant classic.

 

Matt Watson (Miscouche, PE) leads a talented field of drivers that will look to take the Passione Flooring and Interiors 50 trophy away from Nova Scotia on Saturday. Watson is a multi-time feature winner at Oyster Bed Speedway and is a two-time Eastern Super Mini Cup Series champion. Jamie Cummings (Charlottetown, PE), Cody Byrne (Orwell Cove, PE) and Tyler Larkin (Montague, PE) comprise the quartet from Prince Edward Island looking to take the trophy back across the Confederation Bridge on Saturday.

 

Chris Garnett (Havelock, NB) is the lone New Brunswick entrant in the field. With a strong start to the season at Petty International Raceway and Brad Daley as the crew chief, Garnett is more than ready to tackle his first Scotia Speedworld race.

 

A number of drivers will make their first MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour starts of the season. Among those scheduled to compete include Jeffrey Davidson (Inverness), Brandon MacMillan (Glace Bay), Greg McKay (Eastern Passage) and Richard Ramsay (Halifax).

 

James Sample (Antigonish), former NAPA Sportsman Series driver, will make his MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour debut on Saturday. Former Scotia Speedworld Lightning champion Marc MacMillan (Glenholme) will slide into the seat of the No. 33 car for Jerome Tracey. Taylor MacLean (New Glasgow) will line up for his second start of the season.

Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman 125 Centre Stage Saturday at 660

 

(Geary, NB - June 19th, 2018) - If you are a fan of Late Model Sportsman action, Speedway 660 in Geary, New Brunswick is the place to be this weekend. The 1/3-mile oval will serve as the battleground for the Martin’s Home Heating 125, the first major extended distance Sportsman race in Atlantic Canada for the 2018 season. Championship point racing will also be contested in the RE/MAX East Coast Elite Realty Pro Stock, DMR Auto Sales and Service Street Stock and Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooters. The green flag goes in the air for qualifying at 6:30pm.

 

With three times the laps on the table compared to a regular distance 40-lap Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman feature and $2,000 on the line to the winner, the Martin’s Home Heating 125 is sure to attract a number of visitors to the Geary woods for the first time in 2018. They will have to come to Speedway 660 locked and loaded though. With four races in the books, four different drivers have found their way to Riverview Ford Lincoln Victory Lane so far in 2018.

 

Drew Greenlaw (Eastport, ME) opened the 2018 season with a win in the Riverview Ford Lincoln Race for Hunger and is deadlocked at the top of the point standings with Kids Day feature winner Curtis Collins (Saint John). The last two rounds have belonged to the O’Blenis sisters with older sister Alexandra winning during Fredericton Gun Shop Night and Courtney taking the checkered flag first last Saturday night. While no championship points based off finishing order are on the line for the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman division, expect these early title contenders to leave it all out on the track on Saturday night.

 

While his daughters have lit the lamp the last two weeks in the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman division, word on the street is that Dave O’Blenis (Boundary Creek) will look to even the Sportsman score on Saturday night. O’Blenis, who drove to victory lane to the tune of $5,000 last year during SpeedWeekend, will look to add another big Sportsman win to his already impressive resume.

 

O’Blenis will not be alone though when it comes to big names looking to come in and swoop up a win. Laurie Cormier (Riverview) is one of the biggest names when it comes to Sportsman racing in New Brunswick and the blue and white No. 53 is one of the most familiar combinations in the region. Cormier will be looking to add an extended distance win at Speedway 660 to his long list of accomplishments on Saturday.

 

Brady Creamer (Miramichi), who, along with Cormier, already has one Sportsman win in the province to his credit in 2018, and Matt Rogers (Smithtown) are all coming to Speedway 600 with one goal in mind - to pad their pockets with $2,000 and collect a checkered flag after 125-laps.

 

Strategy will come into play on Saturday night with the event being run 125-laps without a designated break for teams to fuel and work on their race cars. The Martin’s Home Heating 125 will feature live pit stops which will let teams choose when they come down pit road in a race that is sure to be ever changing and evolving with any caution periods in the event. The format is similar to those in extended distance Pro Stock division races, like the McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 on SpeedWeekend.

 

With nearly 20 Sportsman teams expected to compete in the Martin’s Home Heating 125 on Saturday, fans are in for some of the most exciting Late Model action they’ll see in the province in the month of June!

 

Ryan Messer’s (Harvey) first feature win of the RE/MAX East Coast Elite Pro Stock season has created a tighter picture at the top of the standings. Dave O’Blenis will enter with a two point lead on the driver of “Big Orange,” who is preparing this week to graduate high school. The vice continues to tighten with Greg Fahey (St. Stephen), Ashton Tucker (Lyttleton) and reigning champion Brent Roy (Hanwell) all within the title chat with four races under their belt.

 

Justin Cole (Harvey) has laid it to his competition during the opening four rounds of the DMR Auto Sales and Service Street Stock division. Cole has won three of the first four races in the division, including last Saturday’s 30-lap feature by two thousandths of a second! Goodwin was able to gain one point last weekend based on his heat finish compared to Cole, which will leave the pair tied atop of the standings after four races. Like the Pro Stock division, the Street Stocks are seeing championship contenders being established as Roger Slocum (Chipman) and Shawn Hyslop (St. Stephen) begin to build a margin back to fifth place in the division while keeping touch with Goodwin and Cole.

 

Scott “Bat Hubby” Kennie’s (Fredericton) first career Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter feature victory kept him up top in the four cylinder standings. Kennie, Brody Levesque (Fredericton) and Bryan Suttie (Keswick) have been back and forth early in the season in the win column and Saturday will write a fifth chapter into the 2018 season.

 

Returning for 2018, children aged 15 and under will be admitted to the grandstands for free to every stock car event at Speedway 660. The admission structure makes it easier for families to attend race events at the track and received positive feedback from fans when implemented mid-season in 2017.

 

Adult grandstand admission price for Saturday evening’s Martin’s Home Heating 125 is $20 (aged 16 and up). Pit admission is $25 and is restricted to those 16 years of age and older. Tickets are available at the gate on race day. Pit gates for competitors will open at 1pm, grandstand gates open for spectators at 5pm with racing getting underway at 6:30pm. A complete race day format will be available via Speedway660.com later in the week.

Andrew Gresel Scores Another Top-Five at Peterborough Speedway
 
 
SAUBLE BEACH, Ont. – June 19, 2018 – Andrew Gresel had to battle, but successfully drove his McRobert Fuels/CUSW No.81 Ford Fusion to a top-five finish during the Hy-Grade Roofing 100 at Peterborough Speedway with the APC United Late Model Series on Saturday, June 16. Gresel’s fourth-place finish was his second top-five result of the season.
 
“It ended up being a pretty good day overall,” Gresel explained. “After all the work during the week to get it ready and having to work on other things besides setup, it was really good. We’ve run decently there before, but it was really good this time compared to last year. It was an improvement.”
 
After qualifying seventh fastest, Gresel lined up fourth following the top-10 inversion. He quickly made his way up to the second spot, but noticed the engine temperature climbing above normal levels and was forced to pit under caution shortly after lap 20.
 
“We left a strip of qualifying tape on the grill. It was just a mistake,” Gresel said. “We took the tape off and when we went back out the engine temperature dropped pretty much instantly 20 degrees and we were fine.”
 
Continued Gresel: “We had to go all the way to the back after. At that point, we just wanted to finish the race with a clean racecar. It’s always risky running at the back, but at the front they were running pretty hard. It was kind of good in a way. We got to save a little bit of rubber, but it was a big challenge trying to get around everyone.”
 
Gresel methodically moved his way through the field in the caution-filled race. He found himself just on the outside of the top-five in the closing laps and made a couple of late passes to claim the fourth-place finish.
 
“We got stuck on the outside quite a bit on restarts,” Gresel said. “We would lose two or three spots before we got down, but we were really patient. I know for sure we were a second-place car, we just ran out of time. Once we broke free from the pack, we were catching everybody. We caught Rick Burbridge and then there was only two to go when we got around JR Fitzpatrick.”
 
A large contingent of Hy-Grade Roofing supporters were on hand for the race and were quick to congratulate Gresel for charging through the field to a fourth-place finish on a hot afternoon.
 
“Everybody at Hy-Grade Roofing was super excited for us and congratulated us,” Gresel said. “They really enjoyed the race and liked seeing us work our way back up to the front. It was good to see all of them out to support us.”
 
Gresel also climbed up to seventh in the championship standings with the top-five finish, a strong points night for him with six races still to come on the tour.
 
“We’re still there in the hunt and we have something to race for,” Gresel said. “It seems like it’s flying by, but we’re only three races in. As long as we keep doing what we’re doing, we’re going to be there.”
 
Gresel will now shift his focus to the series first of two stops at Delaware Speedway on Friday, June 29. It’s a track Gresel has experienced plenty of success at in recent years with three wins in the series last four races at the Komoka, Ont. half-mile.
 
“We have a couple of weeks to get ready for Delaware and I’m looking forward to that race,” Gresel said. “This weekend was really good, so I think we’re going to have a good car for Delaware and I really like the big tracks. We’re really looking forward to racing for the win for Al McRobert of McRobert Fuels at his home track.”
 
Race time at Delaware Speedway on June 29 is 7:30pm. For additional event information, visit www.delawarespeedway.com.

Tough Day at Peterborough Results in 12th-Place Finish For Matt Pritiko

LONDON, Ont. – June 19, 2018 – A challenging day made for a tough evening as Matt Pritiko logged a 12th-place finish during the APC United Late Model Series’ Hy-Grade Roofing 100 at Peterborough Speedway on Saturday, June 16.
 
“We just couldn’t get the car setup the way we wanted,” Pritiko said. “We’ve been trying something new in the rear-end setup wise, and it’s just not working out. We were trying to see if it would click, but it hasn’t worked out the way we wanted the last couple of races, so it’s time to change it back to last year’s setup.”
 
While Pritiko didn’t get the car to his liking, he still turned in a sixth-place qualifying effort during time trials, which lined him up eighth on the starting grid for the 100-lap main event. After running in the top-10 early on, Pritiko surrendered his track position in order to pit and make further adjustments.
 
“Fifteen laps in we made a pit stop and I think we just over adjusted,” Pritiko explained. “We just couldn’t get the car under our feet. It was too tight in the centre and it was loose off the corner. We’re working to figure out what went wrong.”
 
When the checkered flag waved, Pritiko had made his way from the rear to a 12th-place finish. While it was a tough day for Pritiko, he still maintained fourth in the championship standings, just 23 points back of the point leader. Despite the finish outside the top-10, Pritiko was happy the car returned home without damage.
 
“It’s still a decent points finish,” Pritiko said. “It feels like we’ve run a lot of races, but we still have six races to go and they’re at tracks we feel really comfortable at, so we’re looking forward to the last two-thirds of the schedule. We still have plenty of time to chase the championship.”
 
Pritiko now shifts his focus to the next race on the 2018 series schedule, the Spectra Premium 100 at his home track, Delaware Speedway, on Friday, June 29. Pritiko is a former weekly competitor at Delaware and will look to use his extensive knowledge of the track to earn a win.
 
“I think we’re going to try to test a few times before then and try to get our groove back,” Pritiko said. “You have some good weekends and some bad ones, so we’ll get back on the right foot at Delaware.
 
Race time for the APC United Late Model Series at Delaware Speedway on Friday, June 29 is 7:30pm. For additional event information, visit www.delawarespeedway.com and www.apcracingseries.com.

LUCAS OIL CAN-AM MIDGETS; STAHLE SWEEPS FLAMBORO WITH DOUBLE FEATURE WIN

Adrian Stahle dominated Flamboro Speedway Saturday night winning both Lucas Oil Can-AM Midget Feature races giving his father Wayne one of the best Father’s Days gifts.
“Thanks for the congratulations, we didn’t make any changes to the car, I think the track just came to it a little better and a good father day gift for my dad.  I’d like to thank Bell Cartage and Larka Custom Machine who help us get to the track every week, to Grisdale’s and American Racer for providing an amazing tire package,  to Lucas Oil for sponsoring us every year so we can come out and do what we love and to all the fans for their support.
The Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets send out a tremendous Thank you to John Van Wyngaarden at Flamboro Machine Shop (FMS) for sponsoring a Driver Draw.  The lucky driver to win $100.00 cash was Brandon Zavarella in the # 91 car.  Congratulations Brandon and Thank you John and FMS for your support.
Lucas Oil Can-Am Midget Feature #1 had last years Rookie of the Year Dominique Smith starting our on pole.  Smith got a good start a the drop of the green making her way out in front of the field as the field behind her bunched up trying to jockey for position heading into turn 2.
By the time turn 3 came, Smith was out front followed by Ryan Fraser, Steven Murdock, Lucas Munsie and Adrian Stahle.  Back in the field, Cory Whittam departed for the pits after the first lap with what appeared to be engine trouble.  Munsie fell back from fourth spot when he slowed and went high going into turn 1 and 2 letting the faster cars pass falling into ninth.
As the top five leaders were making laps nose to tail, back in the pack, new rookie Cassidy Marche was trying to get past Munsie who was holding strong onto ninth. 
Stahle who started in eight made great headway jumping into third then into second as he utilized the battle Fraser and Smith had going on as Fraser tried to capture first.  Stahle was able to get under both of them to claim first bringing along Adam Racine and Murdock.
As Stahle ran up front the top four remained unchanged throughout the race; Stahle, Racine, Murdock, and Darren Dryden.  As the front-runners caught the rear of the field of and the 5 car of Glen Fenwick and the 44 car of Marche both drivers showed respect and pulled aside while the leaders battled to catch Stahle.  Mid pack, Fraser was battling for fifth with Smith until getting past her on lap 15.
As the Lucas Oil Can-Am Midget 20 lap feature ended so did the hopes of anyone catching Stahle.

The Lucas Oil Can-Am Midget final finish for Feature # 1 at Flamboro Speedway on June 16/18 was as follows; 1. ADRIAN STAHLE, 2. Adam Racine, 3. Steven Murdock, 4. Darren Dryden, 5. Ryan Fraser, 6. Dominique Smith, 7. Brandon Zavarella, 8. Lucas Munsie, 9. Cassidy Marche (R), 10. Glen Fenwick, 11. Cory Whittam.

Lucas Oil Can-Am Midget Feature #2 had Munsie on pole with Zavarella along side for the drop of the green.  Zavarella was able to get a good start on Munsie claiming the lead as Munsie fell back.
Stahle who started eighth again had passed Smith, Fraser, Dryden, Murdock, Racine and Munsie on the high side to slide into third.  The next lap Stahle was passing Zavarella who graciously gave up the lead to the faster car. 
As Stahle pulled away from the field, Murdock found himself bunched up with Fraser and Zavarella, all trying to put their name on the second position.  Murdock, on the low side seemed to have the better pull on his car and was the victor of the second position.
While Stahle had his car on rails favouring the top side of the track the rest of the field found their speed on the bottom.  Dryden went low into one on lap 4 to claim third from Zavarella bring Racine with him into the fourth spot.
By lap 11, the front-runners caught the rear of the field and began lapping the cars of Fenwick, Zavarella, Marche and then finally getting Munsie on the last lap just before the start finish line.
Stahle was far out in front that the top five fastest cars could only hope to get a caution to bring them back together for a shot at the win but with amazing drivers running that caution eluded them.

The Lucas Oil Can-Am Midget final finish for Feature # 1 at Flamboro Speedway on June 16/18 was as follows; 1. ADRIAN STAHLE, 2. Steven Murdock, 3. Darren Dryden, 4. Adam Racine, 5. Ryan Fraser, 6. Dominique Smith, 7. Lucas Munsie, 8. Glen Fenwick, 9. Cassidy Marche (R), 10. Brandon Zavarella, 11. Cory Whittam.

OSCAAR / Gary McLean Leads Flag-to-Flag in OSCAAR Modified Feature
« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on June 21, 2018, 07:37:18 AM »
Gary McLean Leads Flag-to-Flag in OSCAAR Modified Feature

Taking the lead off the drop of the green flag, Gary McLean led flag-to-flag in the OSCAAR Modified feature at Jukasa Motor Speedway.
“This is a cool place,” McLean said. “So happy with the car – everybody did a great job. To come here to a place where I remember watching races here, but to come back here and win, that’s pretty cool. To get the opportunity to race on this place is spectacular, but to win is even better.”
Kelly Balson won the first heat ahead of A.J. Emms, Gary Elliott, David Balych, Jason Bowden, and Jase Cornell.
The second heat saw Ryan Dick pick up the mechanical black flag. Jeff Showler picked up the win ahead of Gary McLean, Chris Milwain, Mark Gordon, and Duane Cinnamon.
Halfway through the third heat, there’d be a caution as Lane Zardo would make significant contact with the outside wall, ending his day early. John Harper picked up the win ahead of Cory Horner, Mike Hearty, Marshall Schrenk, and Tyler Di Venanzo.
Come feature time, Gary McLean drew the pole starting spot in the re-draw. Once the checkered flag fell, it didn’t take long for him to make it clear that he was the man to beat, taking the lead. Even with a mid-race restart and a challenge, he was unable to be passed, taking the win for his second victory of 2018.
“It was a great battle,” McLean spoke of the battle for the lead. “You know, A.J. had to miss last week due to an injury, and he’s back at it. He’s fast. He’s fast every week. The kid can drive a racecar. A lot of fun. I’d wish we get more guys like that who can drive them.”
After missing Kawartha, A.J. Emms ran second throughout the feature en route to a runner-up finish.
“Gary is doing an awesome job each and every week,” Emms said. “They definitely been the class of the field not just this year, but for a very long time. We’re very fortunate to be up here with him. I’m pretty proud of my crew. The handling went away at the end, but we got something we can work on for next week and we’re definitely proud to be here. To get a second place finish, especially here at Jukasa Motor Speedway – it’s a historic place and it means a lot to run upfront here.” 
Jeff Showler scored a career-best third-place finish ahead of John Harper and Chris Milwain. Cory Horner utilized his sixth-place starting spot to turn it into a sixth-place finish ahead of Kelly Balson, Mike Hearty, Jason Keen, and Dale Reinhart.
Jason Bowden continued his strong rookie campaign with an 11th-place finish ahead of Marshall Schrenk, Gary Elliott, David Balych, and Mark Gordon. Jase Cornell finished 16th, followed by Tyler Di Venanzo in his OSCAAR debut. Duane Cinnamon and Ryan Dick ran into mechanical issues en route to their 18th and 19th respective finishes. Wally Wilson only made a couple laps in the feature en route to a 20th-place finish after suffering a crash in practice.
The OSCAAR Modifieds will be back at Jukasa Motor Speedway on June 23 and will be joined by the OSCAAR Hot Rod Series and Ontario Outlaw Super Late Model Series. Event details are located at https://www.jukasamotorspeedway.com/ .

OSCAAR / Tyler Hawn Makes History at Jukasa Motor Speedway
« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on June 21, 2018, 07:36:36 AM »
Tyler Hawn Makes History at Jukasa Motor Speedway

In the first OSCAAR Hot Rod Series event at Jukasa Motor Speedway, it’d be a familiar face taking home the checkered flag.

When the feature saw  Tyler Hawn and Billy Alderson Jr. draw the front row starting spots, the fans knew they’d be in a for a show with the early season heavy weights together.

The predictions proved correct as Alderson Jr. grabbed the early lead, pacing the first half of the 20-lap feature on Saturday afternoon. However, Hawn wasn’t about to be denied, making the move past Alderson around the midway point of the event, taking the top spot.

Tyler Hawn then led from that point to the end, scoring his third feature victory of the 2018 campaign. Billy Alderson Jr. finished third for his third top-five finish in four races.

Behind the leaders, the battle for third was just as equally exciting. Fischer looked hopeful at first to keep the positive momentum moving forward from Kawartha, keeping Steve Book behind him through most of the feature for third. However, a late charge from Steve Mayhew proved enough, as he’d make the late-race pass to break onto the podium.

Steve Mayhew’s third-place finish marks a season-best, while Fischer’s fourth is his third straight top-five finish. Steve Book rounded out the top-five with his second straight fifth-place finish.

Jerry Broom crossed the finish line in sixth for a season-best, ahead of Derek Henderson with a season-best seventh. Ken McNicol placed eighth in his first start of the 2018 campaign ahead of Dan Price, whom pulled off early with mechanical issues. Unfortunately, Nick Clarke also ran into the issues, handing him a 10th-place finish.

The OSCAAR Hot Rod Series will be back at Jukasa Motor Speedway on June 23 alongside the OSCAAR Modifieds and the Ontario Outlaw Super Late Model Series. Event details are located at https://www.jukasamotorspeedway.com/.

Stevenson & Baker Jr. Share 20 Lap OMRS Features at Sauble Speedway

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media

 

Racers always look forward to exploring new territory and Saturday, June 16th drivers and teams with the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series – powered by Torque Builders Inc. – paid a first ever visit to Sauble Speedway. Randy Hollingsworth – who along with Rick Warnes and Bill Pickford make up the tour’s team of officials – says that taking the show on the road is the latest opportunity to increase the OMRS brand awareness.

 

“Fans at Peterborough and Flamboro have cheered at our shows for the past few seasons,” said Hollingsworth. “Now, its time to open the doors to a new base of support for the type of racing we’re able to provide when our series rolls to the green flag.”

 

9 teams made the trek to the NASCAR sanctioned Sauble Speedway, where tour officials and the track promotional group decided to run a pair of 20 lap feature events instead of the traditional program of qualifying heats and an ‘A’ main. Points earned in both events were tabulated to determine the overall finishing order.

 

Reigning series champion Brad Stevenson took the opening checkered flag over John Baker Jr., Rob Warnes, Chad Strawn and Anthony DiBello. Rick Warnes, Hollingsworth, Craig Stevenson and Willow Barberstock completed the finishing order. In the second round, John Baker Jr. – the 2016 champion – earned the checkered flag. Brad Stevenson, Strawn, Rick Warnes, DiBello, Rob Warnes, Hollingsworth, Craig Stevenson and Barberstock were next across the stripe.

 

Ontario Modifieds Racing Series notebook: Next on the schedule will be a Saturday, June 23rd start at Peterborough Speedway. Saturday, June 30th, OMRS teams will run their first show of the year at Flamboro Speedway.
