The OSS signs off for 2007- Building for 2008
« on: September 03, 2007, 11:08:02 AM »
The 2007 Ontario Sportsman Series came to a close this weekend at Cayuga Speedway and signed off with a bang giving race fans a look at what is in store for the future.... Car Count and Close Racing !!
Cayuga Speedway signed in 23 cars which in today's market place in racing is a strong number, more so when the Series itself didn't even get going until May of this year.
The OSS provided some of the best short track racing that Southern Ontario has ever seen and supplied the fans with Twelve 50 lap green flag races at 5 different tracks which was supported by 24 different teams.
The 2007 OSS Championship was won by longtime go fast driver, Steve Robblee who preformed flawlessly through out the season, as well there was a wide assortment of drivers that filled the fields with both truly Experienced Drivers and several Rookie Drivers making the racing exciting and a great way for new comers to grow in the sport.
 
The focus for the series was to provide a format for Race Teams to race under, using the exsisting 2006 CASCAR Sportsman rule book, keeping the costs down and filling a void that was created when NASCAR took over the CASCAR Super Series, but leaving out the Sportsman Series.
For Racers wanting to join the OSS in 2008 you can expect pretty much the same rules, which will make it easy for Teams to purchase either NASCAR CTS cars, CASCAR Super Series cars or Sportsman cars at a reasonable cost from ex sisting teams.
A Good race car will run you anywhere between $12,000 and $20,000 dollars for a roller and motors are available starting at around $10,000 and up based on what's in the block for parts. The Operating expense for a year will run you around $1000.00 per event making this not only a competitive series, but more importantly very inexpensive for the caliber of Racing.

2008 looks to be another growth year for the OSS as more teams are talking about adding an entry from there NASCAR CTS stables, as well as new comer's coming to the Series, and many teams are looking at entering more then 1 car as you will see the growth in multi car teams unfold.
The OSS provides a format for those wishing to build on their careers in Motorsports and is a natural for drivers that wish to make the jump to the NASCAR CTS series as the cars are basically the same.

The OSS was supported by several, 'best in the business', sponsors this year which included Castrol Oil Products, Fast Eddies, Choko Sportswear, The Fishin Canada Show, Reliance Machine Works, Racing Radios, Performance Fibreglass, McColl Race Parts, Inside Track Publications and MMP Design, which all made the birth of the OSS a reality. The Sponsors that support the OSS will continue to grow for 2008 as several Company's across Canada have already taken a look at the success and the following of fans that the OSS has been able to promote with great racing, great drivers and great cars, making this series a very affordable series for any company to market and advertise in.

Although the 2007 season has ended, every team is already planning ahead for next year and several new racers will be coming on board to build the car count making this an even more rewarding series for the Fans, the Teams, and the Sponsor's. The amount of races for 2008 will be first on the agenda and the number 10 seems to be the goal for events, all Twin 50's, with idea's of possably a 150 lap season ending event. There has been talk of even taking in a Road Course or two, as well a Sportsman Shootout at the end of the year which would be made up of the Top 15 Drivers in the East racing against the Top 15 Drivers from the Western Sportsman Series, and hopefully this will continue into a tradition of naming the best in the Canadian Sportsman Series Cup, competing the best in the East against the best in the West. The Purse money for the OSS is also on the top of the to do list, and plans are to increase the Payouts and Awards for 2008 making this a greater return in investments for Race Teams then anyother racing series in Canada as purse money across the racing commuinity has dropped off. It's the OSS that is looking to solve that issue by increasing the per lap money in winnings for the Teams by exacuting new sponsors and larger car counts for race tracks to sign.

For racers that would like to join the OSS in 2008, or Sponsors that are looking for an excellent opportunity to advertise in the series, please log onto www.ontariosportsmanseries.com where you will find all the answers you are looking for with regards to joining the fastest growing racing series in Canada.

To all the Sponsors, the Fans, the Tracks, the Teams and the Suppliers for the Ontario Sportsman Series, We say thank you and hope to see you all next season.
