Adam Cuthbertson Sets His Sights On Something Better Than Second Best

Adam Cuthbertson Sets His Sights On Something Better Than Second Best

Growing up, most people were taught that it didn’t matter if they won or lost, as long as they tried their best. It’s a great idea in theory, but almost impossible to put into practice.

Adam Cuthbertson is used to winning races. With the 2009 and 2010 Ontario Legends Series point championships on his resume, the 27 year old is no stranger to posing for photos in victory lane. Even though he has yet to claim a main event checkered flag in Peterborough Speedway’s Late Model division, the native of Uxbridge – who now makes his home in Omemee, Ontario with wife, Sarah – says he knows it’s only a matter of time before he makes an appearance in the winner’s circle at the tight, tricky circuit known as Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval.

“We’ve just finished our second season in the Late Model and the races we ran in 2013 – even though we finished 7th in points – were more about getting used to the bigger, heavier and faster car than they were about charging to the front,” said Cuthbertson. “Being able to earn a runner-up finish in the points a couple of years after our first green flag speaks volumes for the equipment the team was able to give me week after week; especially with such a deep talent pool in the division.”

Away from the track, Adam Cuthbertson enjoys adrenaline-building hobbies like water skiing, downhill skiing and hunting. He describes the rush he gets there in the same vein as the challenge that comes with strapping-in behind the wheel of his racecar. The driver who has scored at least one main event checkered flag on every track on the Legends Series says his main goal is to improve week after week, race after race.

“My career is where it is today because of what I did in the other division,” said Cuthbertson, who works as an aircraft mechanical engineer at Flying Colours Corporation. “I had some excellent runs with my brother Wes and the others over the years. I think it’s only a matter of time before we’re able to transition the level of success we had in the Legends Series to our Late Model program.”

Like most competitors in the world of short track motorsports, Adam Cuthbertson’s program has a strong contingent of family, friends and fans who regularly step-up to the plate to offer their support. Behind the scenes and at the racetrack, his equipment is prepared and maintained by his father and crew chief, Andrew Cuthbertson, brother in-law Jeff McKibbon, Andrew Laba, Wes Cuthbertson and race day spotter Rick Cook. The car’s number is derived from 179, used by his uncle as a snowmobile racer and then shortened to 79 on the Legend car and revised again to the #17 he uses today.

Adam Cuthbertson would like to thank sponsors Flying Colours Corporation, Can Rack Metal Centre Systems and NAPA Auto Parts for their backing during the 2014 season. Fans can follow the #17 Late Model team at www.facebook.com/Cuthbertsonracing.

7th In OSCAAR Super Late Model Points: Rob Poole

7th In OSCAAR Super Late Model Points: Rob Poole

Rob Poole would start off his 2014 campaign on a strong note with consistent, top-10 finishes. However, as the second half of the year began, mechanical gremlins would strike and derail the season.

Starting off the year at Sunset Speedway, Poole would post a solid sixth place finish to get the year started on a good note. A trip to Kawartha Speedway would prove to even be better, with a season-high fifth place finish as he ran upfront all race long.

A trip to Barrie Speedway produced a solid seventh place finish, leading into a sixth and an eighth at the Don Biederman Memorial at Sunset.

“We’re still probably a little under budget compared to some of them, but we’re doing the best with what we’ve got and having some fun,” Poole commented post Don Biederman Memorial. “We worked hard this weekend. I got to thank all the guys for sure; they worked their tails off. It turned out good.”

The driver of the No. 45 Visser Farms, Alliston Auto Sales & Leasing, R.A. Electrical, BFI Canada, Reliable Waste Management, AgNav, Central Industrial Supply, Multi-Tech Machining & Welding Inc., Triple Crown Auto Collision, R&W Equipment Ltd., Essa Road Chiropractic, ERA Tours and Progressive Waste Solutions Super Late Model looked to carry the good momentum into the month of July when the tour headed to Sauble Speedway. He would have a good run going, though a cut rear tire would result in an 11th place finish.

The Rob Poole Racing team immediately looked to get their season back on track, though, returning to the front of the field at the next event at Peterborough Speedway with a fifth place finish. He would then back it up with a solid sixth place finish at Kawartha Speedway a week later.

Just as it looked they had things turned around, the final four events wouldn’t go as planned with problems in the pair of Sunset Speedway events to close out the year, resulting in Poole missing both Peterborough races.

Poole has proven that he and his team have the pieces to be front runners in OSCAAR – if they can get the pieces to stay together. If they’re able to do that next year, expect Poole to be a consistent front all year and possibly pick up his first win.

7th In Hanover Holiday Modified Points: Tommy Robb

7th In Hanover Holiday Modified Points: Tommy Robb

With success on his side and looking to try something new, Tommy Robb moved up to the OSCAAR Hanover Holiday Modified tour for the 2014 season. While the season was a struggle at times due to bad luck and mechanical issues, Robb would have a solid season overall.

Robb started off the season well, posting a solid 10th place finish in the season opener at Sunset Speedway. He would then keep improving, posting a fifth place finish at Kawartha Speedway.

With momentum on his side, Robb looked to on his way to another solid run at Barrie Speedway. However, that was when the season took a turn. A wreck on the last lap of the feature would find Robb caught right in the middle, with his modified taking heavy damage. Though worse, he banged up his wrist in the process.

Not willing to let his injury slow him down, the ‘Relentless’ driver fixed the car and back out for the next event – the double header at Sunset Speedway. Robb would have a pair of good back-to-back nights, finishing seventh and sixth.

“This team is all about forward movement,” Robb said post-race on June 29th. “We want to be better this weekend than we were the last time out. I definitely feel as though we accomplished that these last two nights.”

The driver of the No. 88r First General Services of Hanover and Kitchener, Sturrock Construction, Roymar Construction, Revolution Race Products Modified carried the positive momentum to Ottawa, finishing seventh in the pair of races at Capital City Speedway.

He would finish 10th at the Rick Woolner Memorial, but misfortune would bite him a couple weeks later at Peterborough en route to a 12th place finish. Robb never gave up, though, coming back a week later to finish eighth at Kawartha.

The misfortune bug wouldn’t disappear, though, as a wreck in his heat at Delaware Speedway would cause him to miss the feature. The pair of Sunset Speedway would roll Robb a mixed bag, with finishes of 10th and 12th. Robb would end his season on a high note, though, finishing sixth in the Autumn Colors Classic.

Despite being a rookie, Robb showed a ton of speed all year long and was able to put himself into a contention a couple weekends. If the pieces come together in 2015, expect Robb to be in the top-five in points with a possible win under his belt.

8th In OSCAAR Super Late Model Points: Dave Doucette

8th In OSCAAR Super Late Model Points: Dave Doucette

After experiencing success in the Super Stock/Thunder Car ranks across Ontario, Dave Doucette made the move up to OSCAAR Super Late Model competition for 2014.

“Well, myself and my team are always looking for new challenges in racing so together we thought it was time for a change,” Doucette commented pre-season.

The season certainly brought forth some challenging moments for the past Autumn Colors Classic Champion as he would suffer some bad luck throughout the year, but also was able to find some success.

Doucette started off his year with a solid run in his No. 44 Xtreme Auto Service, TSS Top Shops, Redline Graphics and Spencer Lewis Promotions Super Late Model, finishing 10th in the Lucie Alywin Memorial at Sunset Speedway. Return trips to Sunset throughout the year brought forth more success, including a solid seventh in the Bruce Gowland Memorial.

The eastern swing of the schedule wouldn’t go as planned, though. Doucette would post an 11th place finish at Peterborough Speedway, before suffering a wreck at Kawartha Speedway in the early laps.

A trip to Sauble Speedway during the summer allowed Doucette to experience the success he was looking for, as he would post a solid ninth place finish.

As Doucette looks back through the season, though, there is one moment outside of these that will stand out even more. Doucette returned to his home track, Barrie Speedway and had a great night, running inside the top-five throughout the night en route to posting a fourth place finish.

Doucette capped off his season with a solid 10th place finish in the Autumn Colors Classic at Peterborough, and will hope to take that momentum into 2015 in search of his first podium finish.

8th In OSCAAR Hanover Holiday Modified Points: Brian McLean

8th In OSCAAR Hanover Holiday Modified Points: Brian McLean

Continuing to improve with each passing year, Brian McLean would have a couple standout runs throughout the course of 2014.

The modified pilot started off his season on a decent note, posting an 11th place finish at Sunset Speedway, followed by a 12th place finish at Kawartha Speedway. A trip to Barrie Speedway would bring the first top 10 of the season with a ninth place finish.

As the month of June finished off, the OSCAAR Modifieds would head back to Sunset Speedway for a double header event. Without a doubt, the Don Biederman Memorial weekend would be the highlight of the season. McLean would pilot his No. 47 Hone Building Centre – Bowmanville and McLean Farms Modified to an impressive third place finish in the first of two features that weekend, marking his only podium run of the year.

The next four races of the tour would bring split results, as McLean scored three top-10 finishes, highlighted by a seventh place finish at Sauble Speedway. With a string of success, McLean headed into August hoping it’d continue. Though as they say, some things don’t go according to plan.

That’d be the case for McLean as the Chase for the Colors event brought forth a big incident that resulted in the No. 47 Modified up into the backstretch wall with heavy damage. Thankfully, McLean would be uninjured, but the damage would result in a pair of missed events.

McLean would return for the final three races of the season, though couldn’t find much luck. Mechanical issues resulted in a pair of finishes outside of the top 10, with a seventh place finish at the Velocity 250 sandwiched in between.

Throughout the year, there were sparks of greatness shown by McLean, and as noted, highlighted by a podium finish at the end of June. If the mechanical gremlins disappear in 2015 and McLean can continue improving the performance, the veteran could easily return to victory lane.

9th In Super Late Model Points: Tyler Hawn

9th In Super Late Model Points: Tyler Hawn

After missing the first two events of the year due to family reasons, Tyler Hawn made his 2014 debut at Barrie Speedway and improved throughout the season.

Hawn wouldn’t start off the season as he hoped, though, as shifter issues would take him out of the race on lap 38 at Barrie. He would then head to Sunset Speedway looking to improve upon his luck, and did so in completing all the laps in both Don Biederman Memorial features en route to finishing 15th and 10th.

The high mark of season for the driver of the No. 42 Fox’s Bakery and Deli, TSS Top Shops, Belt Conveyor Guarding, Backwoods Maple Syrup, Daly Custom Fab, WriteitOutLoud.com and Stewart Carriers Limited SLM would come at Peterborough Speedway, a couple weeks later. Statistically, Peterborough is Hawn’s best track and that proved to be true once again 2014. Hawn had his best run of the season, en route to posting a sixth place finish. He would then back that up with a solid, clean ninth place finish at Kawartha Speedway.

Looking as though the turnaround had happened, lady luck would flip its head for Hawn in the next two events. A pair of mechanical issues took Hawn out of the running at both Sunset and Peterborough, resulting in poor finishes.

He would then finish off the year on a solid note, though, finishing seventh at the Velocity 250 for his best Sunset Speedway finish of the season, followed by an 11th at Peterborough’s Autumn Colors.

Early in the season, Hawn commented that his Hawn Motorsports team needed to find more speed and handling in their car to improve. He also noted that they had done some work in the off-season, but it didn’t take them in the right direction as he would’ve hoped.

As the year went on, though, it showed that they were beginning to find their stride and the right direction to head in, noted by the positive finishes. With another year of super late racing under his belt, no doubt Hawn has continued to build on his experience behind the wheel.

Now going into 2015, if Hawn can start off the year on a solid note and continue improving, he could be a solid top-five contender on a weekly basis.

9th In OSCAAR Hanover Holiday Modified Points: Brent McLean

9th In OSCAAR Hanover Holiday Modified Points: Brent McLean

After finishing second in points last year, it was evident that Brent McLean had the speed to perform near the front and be a worthy contender for the championship in 2014. However, the season wouldn’t go as he hoped with mechanical issues plaguing him along the way.

The Conn, Ontario native started his season with a 12th-place finish in the season opener at Sunset Speedway following contact mid-race while running near the front. He would bounce back the next week, though, posting a solid sixth place finish at Kawartha Speedway. He would then follow it up with another top-10 at Barrie Speedway.

The solid start to the season wouldn’t last, though, as the mechanical gremlins began on Don Biederman Memorial weekend at Sunset. Experiencing issues on both days would result in finishes of 11th and 17th in the pair of features.

The driver of the No. 7 Home Building Centre (Bowmanville), Pro FX Signs, RN Manufacturing and McLean Farms would quickly put the poor finishes behind, though. He would head to Capital City Speedway, posting a pair of top-fives in the two features.

With momentum on his side, McLean was looking to make the best out of the second half of the season. However, the mechanical gremlins would strike again, resulting in a 16th place finish at Sauble Speedway.

After missing the next couple of races, McLean returned with three races left on the schedule, hoping to leave his mark. While he would post a 19th place finish at the Velocity 250 due to more mechanical issues, he performed in the other two events. He would finish third at Sunset at the end of August, before winning the Autumn Colors Classic in October after a late race duel with Max Beyore.

“I was sick to my stomach in what could happen,” McLean commented following the Autumn Colors Classic. “I just wanted it over with our luck for this year. I didn’t know what way it’d go. I may have run him a little high, but it’s the Classic and I wanted it badly.”

If the mechanical gremlins manage to stay away from Brent McLean and team in 2015, look for the second generation driver to return to championship contention.

10th In OSCAAR Hanover Holiday Modified Points: Chad Strawn

10th In OSCAAR Hanover Holiday Modified Points: Chad Strawn

After having a couple solid runs last season and showing that he had speed, Thunder Car Graduate Chad Strawn entered the 2014 season, looking to put together what it took to be at the front of the pack. Throughout the course of the season, he was able to do that on a couple of different occasions.

Strawn would start off the year on the best note possible, scoring the victory in the season-opening event at Sunset Speedway. Strawn would lead the majority of the 30-lap feature en route to scoring his first career OSCAAR Hanover Holiday Modified victory.

“It was quick from the get go,” Strawn commented in Sunset Speedway victory lane. “Compared to last year, all the changes that we’ve done, it’s an entirely different car.”

From that point on, the season featured highs and lows for the driver of the No. 77 Drytech Tech, Caliber Environmental, Asbestos Environmental, Mold Tech, Safe Tech, Concrobium, Benefect, DryIt, Accu-Star Environmental, EiBach, Terco Construction, I&I Construction, McGowan Insulation, Abatement Technologies, Environmental Service Group, Whitby Carpet Cleaners, GTA’s Finest, VaporTek, Northern Performance, P.J. Larkin Salvage, Tires 2U, LimZak, Dome Insulation and Wickens Dry Ice Blasting Modified.

While Strawn won the season opener at Sunset Speedway, his best finish in his next two Sunset starts was a ninth in the first feature on Don Biederman Memorial weekend.

Kawartha was also filled with the same split deal of success on one end, struggles on the other. Strawn would finish eighth in the first event at Kawartha of the season following a late race spin, though bounced back to score his second career OSCAAR victory in the August event.

The trip to Capital City Speedway brought forth a pair of positive finishes as he would finish sixth and third in the pair of features. He also posted a good finish at Sauble Speedway, finishing sixth in the Rick Woolner Memorial. However, despite the success throughout the season, Strawn wouldn’t end the year on a positive note as he finished 18th at the Autumn Colors Classic at Peterborough Speedway.

Looking forward to next season, if Strawn can find some luck to go with his strength behind the wheel and the speed of his car, look for Strawn to be part of the fight for the 2015 OSCAAR Hanover Holiday Modified Series Championship.

10th In OSCAAR Super Late Model Points: Corey Jones

10th In OSCAAR Super Late Model Points: Corey Jones

Sometimes, drivers can get real lucky and have absolutely everything go their way. Then there are cases when the opposite happens and a driver finds themselves sitting throughout a tirade of bad luck.

In short, this could describe the season that Corey Jones experienced in 2014.

Entering his rookie year of competition in the OSCAAR Super Late Models, Jones showed a lot of potential behind the wheel to be a top-10 contender throughout the year. However, there were multiple times that he would get snake bitten by bad luck, resulting in poor finishes.

The bad luck began early in the year as he would finish 15th in the season’s opening event at Sunset Speedway. The bad luck only carried over to Kawartha Speedway, where he would suffer a 21st place finish following engine issues.

Entering the third event of the year, Jones was looking to get his season turned on a good note. Barrie Speedway would offer that as he was able to post a heat victory, before posting his best career finish of the season with an eighth.

From there on, though, it was a roller coaster ride.

Return trips to Sunset Speedway throughout the season would offer a mix bag of success for the young man. The driver of the No. 82 RBC Remax-Troy Schmidt, Lyndia Miu, Accountable Automotive, Lafleche Roofing, Anmar Cleaning Inc., Octane Productions and Innotech Machine Shop SLM would experience a pair of top-10s at Sunset Speedway, though also had a 14th and 20th place finish to his credit. The 20th place finish in August quite possibly marked the lowest point of the whole season in suffering heavy front-end damage to his ride after being involved in a multi-car incident.

A pair of trips to Peterborough Speedway brought forth a positive, and a negative. He would find ninth in the August event after solidly staying out of trouble, though didn’t have the same luck in October en route to finishing 13th.

As a whole, looking back at the season despite the tough moments, there are positives that ‘Twinkle Toes’ can take with him moving forward. Certainly the top-10 runs throughout the season, but also the lessons learned that will carry him forward in years to come.

“There’s certainly room for improvement, but I think we’ve found a lot of speed in this car as the season has wore on”, says Jones. “We came into this endeavor with limited experience with this style of car, so every week has helped us learn a little more”

Spira Racing – Post Race Update #37 October 18, 2014 Flamboro Speedway

Spira Racing – Post Race Update #37 October 18, 2014 Flamboro Speedway

Samantha, Billy and Jake arrived at Flamboro Speedway for the annual Frost Fest event that was organized and Sponsored by London Recreational as the last event of the season for the Spira/Lucas Oil Team. Scott was not in attendance as his car has been sold and although Scott will be around to help the team, he is getting more focused on his career, purchasing a new truck as well as saving for his first home, putting racing on the back burner for a bit. After the second practice session, Jake brought the #88 into the pits with the engine temperature climbing and then the upper rad hose ruptured. The crew went to work replacing the hose and diagnosing why the rad fan was not working, getting both issues resolved before the cars lined up for their time trials. The #35set the fast time early in the time trial session that would decide the top ten cars going into a dash for cash to set their starting order for the first of two 30 lap features. 37 cars in total arrived to qualify for the event and 27 cars would qualify for the 20 final positions through heat races. Billy bumped the #35 off the top of the leaderboard with his fast lap, however the #39 would bump Billy to 2nd as Samantha and Jake would go into the heat races. In the dash for cash, Billy went out front on the first lap, followed by the #35 and #39 who made their way by him to put him 3rd for the remainder of the race and the win going to the #35. Samantha and Jake were in the same heat race with Sam starting 4th, Jake 5th and Billy’s brother Rick 11th. After multiple cautions with one of them involving Jake, that sent him too the back, Samantha maintained her position throughout the race to finish 4th, Jake worked his way through the field from the back to finish 6th and Rick finished 10th. With the top 8 out of each heat race qualifying into the feature, Rick would run the last change race and finished 4th to qualify as the last place car to start in the feature. First Feature: Billy starter 3rd, Sam 16th and Jake 20th but with multiple cations arriving early, both Samantha and Jake received damage and entered the pits for repairs from the multi car pile ups that took place in the first few laps. The field finally ran some green flag laps before the #37 slid through the infield, causing heavy damage to the clean up truck
and destroying his car, bringing out the caution on lap 5. Billy remained 3rd for the restart, Samantha was 18th and Jake 20th and after Billy fell back to 5th, he worked his way by the #71 into 4th as Sam moved up to 14th and Jake to 17th as they completed ten laps. The final caution free laps would finish with Billy maintaining his 4th place position, Samantha moved her way up to finish 11th and Jake finished 13th. Second Feature: With an inversion for the 2nd feature, Jake would start 1st, Sam 3rd, Billy 10th and Rick 19th out of the remaining 28 cars. Jake and Sam fell back throughout the first ten laps and were running 14th and 12th as Billy moved his way by both his teammates into 8th. The first caution came just after the halfway mark, bringing the scattered field back together. Billy restarted 4th, Sam 9th, Jake 14th and Rick 19th. The #39 spun in front of Billy on the 17th lap that would put Billy into 2nd for a restart beside the #41. As Billy was running side by side with the #41 for the lead, trouble in the middle of the field collected Jake and he was moved to 17th under the caution as Sam ran 8th and Rick 18th. Billy took over the lead on lap 18 and was pulling away from the #41 as the caution returned with only 5 laps remaining for the #71 who spun to a stop in turn 3. Billy moved out front to complete the final 5 laps for the win as Samantha gained two positions to finish 6th, however Jake was forced to pull into the pits with 4 laps remaining as damage to the front of the car
damaged the rad fan and the car was overheating. After celebrating his 12th feature win of the season for Billy and the #86 team, all teams gathered for the final trophies and many prizes that Mike Schmidt from London Recreation had gathered from many sponsors of the event. Combining the two features for total points, Billy was awarded 2nd place overall behind the #35, Samantha had a combined total that would place her 8th, Jake 14th and Billy’s brother Rick would finish 17th. This concludes our 2014 race season, however we will keep you informed throughout the off season of team developments. We wish to take this time to thank our many sponsors, family members, friends and fans that have supported our team and drivers throughout the season as without you and your tremendous support, a successful racing program would not be possible……THANK YOU.

Rick Walt Finishes 10th At Autumn Colors Classic

Rick Walt Finishes 10th At Autumn Colors Classic

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario - Despite having to fight his way through the field on a couple different occasions, Rick Walt would still post a top-10 finish in the Autumn Colors Classic.

Walt started off his weekend strong by winning his first heat on Friday night. He would then finish fifth in his second heat on Saturday, to qualify seventh for the 75-lap feature.

The feature wouldn’t start off as Walt wanted as pole sitter Nick Goetz would get sideways on the start, slowing up as he was unable to find traction. As a result, Walt would get into the back of Goetz on lap two, sending him for a spin. Officials would then send Walt to the rear for the restart. Restarting at the rear, Walt would immediately begin to work his way back up through the field, running 17th as of the second caution at lap seven. However, the restart would bring more problems with Walt as he’d get tangled up with Steve Foster and Jack Horner. As a result, back to the rear of the field once again.

The 2011 Autumn Colors Classic winner would once again begin to start and make his climb forward, moving up to 17th by the fifth caution flew at lap 24. He would then get another good restart and run forward, moving into 12th by the time the sixth caution flew at lap 31. Though as with the way his night had gone so far, the progress would turn out to be all for nothing as contact with Shaun McWhirter on lap 59 would result in a return to the tail end of the field.

Walt began his climb back towards the front once again, running 15th as of lap 66. The restart would come with 11 laps to go and Walt used it to his advantage, moving his way up to the 10th spot before the checkered flag flew.

Thanks to HOTC, Abstract Salon, call Mr. Handy, F1rst Financial, Rust Check, RB Graffix, FLT Independant Order of Odd Fellows, Eisses Pumping Service, Remax/ Cindy Snow, TSS Top Shops, Kitchen Tire and all the fans for their continued support all year long.

Terry Woodley Finishes 15th At Autumn Colors Classic

Terry Woodley Finishes 15th At Autumn Colors Classic

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario – Following a mid-race spin, Terry Woodley would post a 15th place finish in the Autumn Colors Classic at Peterborough Speedway.

Woodley would start off his ACC weekend on a rough note, finishing eighth in his first heat on Friday night after getting caught up behind Dave Watchorn when he spun. He would bounce back with a fifth place finish in his second heat on Saturday, to qualify 22nd for the 50 lap feature on Sunday.

Woodley would escape the early wrecks, slowly advancing himself further up the field in hopes to crack the top 10 before the competition of the event. However, he would see his solid run come to an end on lap 26 when he would go spinning coming off of turn four, virtue of contact from Charlie Smith.

Restarting in the 20th spot, Woodley would hope to gain some spots before the checkered flag was flown. He would accomplish that goal, getting by five cars before the checkered to post a solid 15th place finish.
