OMRS Opens its 2017 Season This Weekend at Sunset Speedway

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media


The long wait is nearly over. Fans of the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series – powered by Torque Builders Inc. – will finally get to see their favourite motorsports brand in action, when the popular open-wheeled tour kicks-off its 2017 schedule – Saturday, May 20th – at Sunset Speedway. On the cusp of the new season, Rick Warnes says that this is an exciting time for drivers, teams and supporters.


“Everyone is putting the finishing touches on their equipment and making sure that everything is set for the first green flag,” said Warnes, who along with Randy Hollingsworth and Bill Pickford make-up the team of OMRS officials. “There are new posts on our social media platform almost daily, as people look for clarification on rules and technical information prior to the opening bell.”


Since its inception at the former Mosport International Speedway, the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series has shared a mission statement of providing an affordable, competitive series for racers, by racers. Keeping the overall costs under control allowed the tour to field a line-up of at least a dozen starters at each event throughout the 2016 schedule. Officials are expecting similar numbers during the upcoming season.


While the exact numbers won’t be known until teams sign-in on the opening night, Warnes says a strong group of returning favourites – including former champions Rob Warnes and John Baker Jr. – fresh faces and experienced runners who’ll be making the transition to open-wheeled racing will give OMRS an excellent roster of exciting runners to entertain fans at every race.


“We have an excellent development program in place and our annual test session at Peterborough Speedway opens the door to bring new talent into our ranks.”
