Flamboro Speedway’s Octoberfest Classic is up Next for the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series

Flamboro Speedway’s Octoberfest Classic is up Next for the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series

The 2014 schedule for the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series, powered by Torque Builders Inc. is about to come to a close and the popular open-wheeled tour will wrap things up for the season with a double-header – Friday and Saturday, October 3rd and 4th – as part of the Octoberfest Classic at Flamboro Speedway.

This year’s events have been a level playing field, with strong competition and only one 2 time feature event winner after 5 shows. Powering and preserving affordable open wheel modified racing for racers by racers, OMRS teams are dedicated to working together to give the fans the best possible show. Spokesperson and competitor Randy Hollingsworth says that point was most evident during the Saturday, September 6th show at Flamboro Speedway.

“A failure with a component in the right front corner of the car caused the #61 machine – driven by Bill Pickford – to hit the retaining wall at nearly full speed, just as the field was completing the first lap of the qualifying heat,” said Hollingsworth. “The damaged car was towed to the pits and the rest of us finished the race. It wasn’t long before the car was being swarmed by crew members from other teams and offers of parts. While we all originally thought it was too damaged to continue, Pickford was able to make it back out for the feature and while he wasn’t in contention for the win, fans saw a full field of OMRS teams in action.”

Friday, October 3rd pit gates open at 3:00, with racing at 6:00. The Ontario Modifieds Racing Series is scheduled to run their qualifying heats and a 25 lap main event. Saturday, October 4th pit gates open at 9:00 and racing at 3:00. OMRS teams are on the agenda for a last chance qualifying event and another 25 lap feature.

Scannell Is Canadian Tire Series’ Top Rookie Third-Generation Driver Takes Home First-Year Honor

Scannell Is Canadian Tire Series’ Top Rookie Third-Generation Driver Takes Home First-Year Honor

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 24, 2014) – Blood is thicker than frozen water for Matthew Scannell, who shelved his stick and skates in hockey-crazed Canada and followed in the family footsteps by grabbing a steering wheel and gear shifter.

Four years later, the 17-year-old Scannell became the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 Rookie of the Year.

Scannell, from Rockwood, Ontario, used to split his recreational time between hockey and racing, but when time commitments for the latter increased, the decision was easy.

“It’s always been pretty much racing,” Scannell said. “It’s something I thought I wanted to do in the future. I enjoyed hockey at the time because my friends all did it, but I started go-karts when I was seven and I always dreamed of going to the [United] States and trying to make a living at racing.”

Scannell is a third-generation driver. Howie Scannell Sr. was a Canadian stock car racer, as is the younger Scannell’s father, Howie Jr. A veteran of 26 Canadian Tire Series races, Scannell Jr. essentially vacated the driver’s seat for his son, for whom he now serves as the crew chief.

Scannell took home the Canadian Tire Series first-year driver award with 56 rookie points behind the wheel of the No. 56 OMVIC Dodge. He recorded three top-10s in eight starts, and a 12th-place ranking in the championship points standings.

“For what we had, I think we did fairly well,” Scannell said. “We had some good luck and some bad luck. I got a lot of seat time, good exposure, and I learned a lot. As far as the whole year goes, I think it was valuable towards my learning curve.”

Scannell showed progress as the season went along. His two best finishes were the last two races of the season, ninth at Barrie Speedway and eighth at Kawartha Speedway, which served as inspiration for the 2015 season.

“At the end [at Barrie] we were just as quick as the lead pack,” Scannell said. “It was a confidence boost to know that we could go out there and run competitive.”

The Scannells are currently seeking sponsorship, with the intent to compete full-time in 2015. He hopes to make a home in the Canadian Tire Series moving forward.

“It would be great to go run for championships in the Canadian Tire Series,” Scannell said. “The guys we’re going up against, they’ve been doing it for years, and it’s pretty tough to do. You’ve got to be on the ball every race, every week that you go to the track.”

Scannell has a success story to point to as a blueprint. This year’s series champion, L.P. Dumoulin, earned the rookie award in 2011.

The teen is appreciative of what it took to get him to this point, and of the opportunity he has been provided.

“I have to thank my dad for working on the cars all year, the crew for all of their support, car owner Jim Bray for providing me with the opportunity to race, and my mom and my family for supporting me throughout the season,” Scannell said.

Scannell’s accomplishment will be recognized at the NASCAR Touring Series Awards on Dec. 13 in the Charlotte (North Carolina) Convention Center at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

OMRS Driver Development Program Opens New Doors for Racers

OMRS Driver Development Program Opens New Doors for Racers

Any speedway or touring race series can only be as strong as the talent pool they put on the track. The Ontario Modifieds Racing Series, powered by Torque Builders Inc. is taking steps to build their competition roster for 2015 and recently offered a rare opportunity for drivers to get the feel of a powerful machine at one of the province’s most demanding layouts.

Sunday, September 14th, series officials and staff at Peterborough Speedway joined forces to present a practice and evaluation session in the popular open-wheeled rides. Series organizers Randy Hollingsworth and Rick Warnes each had their tour cars on hand; along with former Ontario Legends Series runner Duane Cinnamon for drivers in the 4Fun, Mini Stock and Thunder Car divisions at Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval to run some laps.

“We de-tuned the cars with a lower rpm chip as much as possible, but still wanted to give the people who came out a feel for what they’re capable of,” said OMRS spokesperson Randy Hollingsworth. “It was interesting to see what drivers who are used to running a four cylinder car with smaller tires and limited horsepower would be able to do at the controls of a more powerful, open wheeled equipment.”

Using the #95 of two-time series winner Rob Warnes as a pace car, a variety of drivers including 2014 Peterborough Speedway 4Fun division track champion and current OMRS Development Program driver Willow Barberstock, Kenny Ohno, Ray Schroer, Jordan DesRoches, Donovan Price and Duane Cinnamon put the loaner pieces through their paces. Cinnamon is looking to be a full-time runner with OMRS in 2015, after purchasing a car from Brandon Bullen.

“It was a great day and everyone came away with a good feel for the speed and handling differences between these rear-wheel drive cars and what they’re used to running,” explained Hollingsworth. “Overall, we were impressed with how quickly everyone seemed to adapt and provide informative comments that will serve to help everyone in the future.”

Ontario Modifieds Racing Series officials would like to thank Peterborough Speedway owner/promoter J.P. Josiasse for hosting the test session and for providing lunch for all the participants.

McGlynn Continues To Roll With Fourth Straight Win

McGlynn Continues To Roll With Fourth Straight Win

(Delaware, ON) – The 2014 Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series Presented by Meineke rolled into Delaware Speedway on Friday for the seventh race of the championship season. Three-time Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup champion Shawn McGlynn (#18) of Kitchener, came into the night with a five-point lead in the championship over sophomore driver Kevin Allen (#54) of Drumbo, as the series made their lone visit to the legendary half-mile as part of the ‘Great Canadian Race Weekend’.

Qualifying was halfway over when Allen blistered a lap of 20.692 seconds to set the fast time, before Josh Wood (#66) of London went to the top of the chart two cars later, turning a lap of 20.582 seconds. Those times would stand up until the third to last car hit the track. Chad McGlynn (#18) of Kitchener, stopped the clock with a time of 20.322 seconds, but his seat at P1 was short lived. ‘Mr. Highside’ Brennan Didero (#24) of Brantford, turned a lap of 20.048 seconds next before Shawn McGlynn closed out the session by taking a stab at Sean Dupuis’ track record from 2008, a time of 19.959, which McGlynn missed by less than a tenth of a second, turning the circuit in 20.038 seconds.

When the field drew their starting positions in the ‘Lucas Oil Fast Five’ draw, Allen was on the pole with Chad McGlynn second. Shawn McGlynn would start third, with Didero sharing the row with him.

Allen slipped up early off turn two, allowing Chad McGlynn to take the lead, but it was short lived. Championship contender Dave ‘Hot Rod’ Connelly (#82) of Arnprior, spun on the second lap to put the field under yellow. On the restart Shawn McGlynn took command and started to walk away from the field. Didero attempted to keep pace with the championship leader, but faded further back through a run that lasted until a lap 48 yellow, when Chad McGlynn was spun in turn three. By this point, Wood had climbed to third, with Jason Meyer (#93) of Tillsonburg, fourth, and Allen fifth.

On the restart, Didero would assert a challenge, taking the lead by the time the pair raced off turn two, but on the same lap in turn three Didero went into the turn too deep and overshot his marks. McGlynn squeezed to the inside and claimed the lead again.

A yellow on lap 65 would give Didero another crack at the lead, but this time it was Wood who was up on the wheel, taking second spot away, while McGlynn cruised out front. One restart later Didero would return the favour, taking second again, but on both of the final restarts, he had nothing for McGlynn and had to worry about fighting off Wood to keep the runner-up spot.

Shawn McGlynn led the rest of the way to claim his fourth straight victory, and fifth straight by the McGlynn racing team thanks to Chad’s win in early July. Along the way he expanded his point lead to nine over Allen heading into the final race of the season. Shawn said, ”
Our car was excellent tonight. We got a good start, and then I was able to get Chad on the first restart. The #24 [Didero] got us once, but he blew the next corner and I was able to get past him quickly. If he didn’t make that mistake, I still think I could’ve got him, but it would have taken a while. After he passed me that one time, I knew it was ‘game on’, and we had to get going on those restarts. We have won the last two at Flamboro, so we should be pretty quick. We have had a great season, but we’ll be shooting for five in a row and then the championship will just be gravy.”

Didero held on to second spot, and said afterwards, “We qualified second, ran second, and finished second tonight. I’m pleased with the night, but it’s still not a win. I got by Shawn once, but that was about all we had for him. It’s a good points day for us, but we didn’t gain any back on Shawn. I’m not sure what we have to do to beat him. He’s on a pretty good roll right now, and we’ve been working hard to try and beat him.

A late race pass netted Allen third-place, and shuffled Wood back to a fourth-place result. It was yet another podium finish for the second year competitor. He said, “Our car got better as we burnt off our fuel load, but we still weren’t as fast as the #81 [McGlynn]. We were able to come through the field after we were involved with an earlier incident, and ran up front all night. I lost a bunch of spots early, but I wasn’t too worried, because I knew we had a good car, and I just had to use patience. It was another podium finish, but we still have one more race to get a win. We also still have a shot at the title, but we need some help from the #81 for that to happen. We just have to come out at Flamboro for the last race and do our best to try and win.”

Chad McGlynn made a late charge after spinning twice to finish fifth.

Final Results – 1. Shawn McGlynn, 2. Didero, 3. Allen, 4. Wood, 5. Chad McGlynn.

Dumoulin Earns First NASCAR Championship Wins NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Crown As Fitzpatrick Takes Kawartha Finale

Dumoulin Earns First NASCAR Championship Wins NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Crown As Fitzpatrick Takes Kawartha Finale

FRASERVILLE, Ont., Canada – JR Fitzpatrick did everything he could. LP Dumoulin did what he needed.

The result was Dumoulin was crowned the champion of the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 Saturday, while Fitzpatrick walked away with the winner’s trophy for the Pinty’s 250 at Kawartha Speedway.

Final championship margin: Three points.

It capped a remarkable career transformation for the 35-year-old Dumoulin, who got his start in open-wheel racing and didn’t make his NASCAR debut until 2009. He ran his first full season in 2012, won his first NASCAR race last year and first NASCAR oval race this season.

And now the Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, native became the first driver besides Andrew Ranger, Scott Steckly and DJ Kennington to take home the coveted national championship for Canadian stock-car racing.

Dumoulin qualified 15th and finished ninth at Kawartha. It was enough for him to edge Fitzpatrick for the title after the latter won the pole award and led the most laps en route to his third victory of the season.

Fitzpatrick led three times for 171 laps, including the final 78. A late caution gave Steckly one more shot with seven to go, but Fitzpatrick pulled away to win by .229 seconds. It was all for naught, though, as a 100-lap green flag run in the middle of the race left just 10 cars on the lead lap and all but ensured Dumoulin the title. He entered the race with a 16-point lead and needed to only finish 11th or better to claim the championship.

Defending race and series champion Steckly finished second at Kawartha, while Jason Hathaway, Mark Dilley and Kennington rounded out the top five.

Jeff Lapcevich was sixth, followed by Steve Mathews, rookie Matthew Scannell, Dumoulin and Jim White.

Kennington finished third in points, 48 back of Fitzpatrick. Steckly edged Hathaway by one point for fourth.

The Pinty’s 250 will air on TSN on Saturday, Oct. 4, at 1:30 p.m. ET, and on RDS2 on Wednesday, Oct. 15 at 9:30 p.m. TSN will also air a 2014 Season In Review on Saturday, Nov. 22 at 1 p.m.

Dumoulin will be honored for his championship season along with NASCAR’s other touring series champions on Saturday, Dec. 12 at the NASCAR Touring Series Awards in the Grand Ballroom of the Charlotte (N.C.) Convention Center at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Statistical Advance: Kawartha Analyzing The Pinty’s 250 At Kawartha Speedway

NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Statistical Advance: Kawartha Analyzing The Pinty’s 250 At Kawartha Speedway

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 16, 2014) – The 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 season will conclude and a champion will be crowned with Saturday’s Pinty’s 250 at Kawartha Speedway. Below is a statistical look at the performance of the series and selected drivers at the track:

Pinty’s 250 Setup:
• Entering the finale, L.P. Dumoulin has a 16-point lead on J.R. Fitzpatrick in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 championship standings. Both will vie for their first championship and Kawartha Speedway win this week.
• With a finish of 11th or better in the Pinty’s 250, Dumoulin would become just the second Quebec driver in series history to earn the championship, joining two-time titlist Andre Ranger.
• A two-time championship runner-up, Fitzpatrick’s first title would mark the sixth time in eight years of series competition that the trophy would reside in Ontario.
• In the seven previous races at Kawartha, D.J. Kennington has earned a record three wins. He’ll contend for victory No. 4 to end the second-longest winless drought of his career (14 races).
• Kennington and Scott Steckly are tied for the most oval track wins in series history with 16 apiece. Steckly has won twice at Kawartha.

At Kawartha Speedway:
• Has welcomed the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 seven times previously. Held inaugural NCATS event on Sept. 23, 2007, which was won by Scott Steckly.
• Seven drivers have participated in all seven previous events, and five are expected to extend the streak this week.
• The seven previous races have produced four different winners, led by D.J. Kennington’s three.
• Each of the seven previous events has produced a different pole winner.
• Dodge has been the winning manufacturer in all seven previous races.
• The 2008 and 2009 races were cut short by rain.
• Jason Hathaway, Pete Shepherd III and Steckly all earned their first career victory at Kawartha.
• There has yet to be a wire-to-wire victory at Kawartha, and last year Steckly became the first to win from the pole.
• Pete Shepherd III was the youngest Kawartha race winner at 24 years, one month and 12 days in 2010.
• Steckly was the oldest Kawartha victor at 41 years, six months and 20 days in 2013.

NASCAR Canadian Tire Series News & Notes: Kawartha

NASCAR Canadian Tire Series News & Notes: Kawartha

• 2014 Season Concludes With Pinty’s 250
• Dumoulin, Fitzpatrick Vie For First Championship

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Sept. 15, 2014) – When the checkered flag falls on the season finale Pinty’s 250 Saturday at Kawartha Speedway, the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 will have a first-time titlist as either L.P. Dumoulin or J.R. Fitzpatrick will take home the championship trophy.

Dumoulin enters the season-ending event with a 16-point advantage on Fitzpatrick, 418-402. The Trois-Rivieres native can become only the second driver from Quebec to capture the championship in series history, joining two-time titlist Andrew Ranger.

In the point-per-position scoring format that also includes bonus points for winning the race, leading a lap and leading the most laps, there are a number of combinations that would see Dumoulin crowned the champ. Simply put, however, the championship hardware would head home with Dumoulin’s No. 47 Dodge team with a finish of 11th or better at Kawartha, a .375-mile oval in Fraserville, Ontario.

Dumoulin has posted a pair of wins and a series-high nine top-five finishes through 10 races this year. His only result outside of the top five was a sixth-place run at Nova Scotia’s Riverside International Speedway. Nothing is guaranteed at Kawartha, however, where Dumoulin has posted an average finish of 16th in three previous starts.

A two-time championship runner-up, Fitzpatrick has a tough hill to climb for his first crown. Not only does he have the 16-point deficit to overcome, but he’s not fared much better at Kawartha through the years than Dumoulin, with an average finish of 15th across seven starts. The Ayr, Ontario, native does bring plenty of momentum into the finale, however, with finishes of first and second the last two times out this year.

Dumoulin or Fitzpatrick will become just the fourth different champion since the Canadian Tire Series began competition in 2007. In the seven previous seasons, Scott Steckly has captured the title three times with two apiece from D.J. Kennington and Ranger.

Fast Facts:
The Race: The Pinty’s 250 will be the 11th and final event on the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 schedule, and the eighth all-time trip to Kawartha Speedway.

The Procedure: The maximum starting field is 26 cars, including provisionals. The first 23 cars will have secured starting positions based on two lap time trials and the remaining three spots will be awarded through the provisional process. The race is scheduled for 250 laps (93.75 miles).

The Track: Kawartha Speedway is part of the Kawartha Downs and Speedway complex in Fraserville, Ontario, east of Toronto near Peterborough. The .375-mile asphalt oval speedway with progressive banking is surrounded by a harness-racing horse track.

Pole Winners: The seven previous Kawartha races have each produced a different pole winner. Mark Dilley set the series’ track qualifying record on Sept. 23, 2007 at 17.704 seconds (76.254 mph).

Race Winners: There have been four different winners in the first seven Canadian Tire Series events at Kawartha, led by D.J. Kennington’s three triumphs.

Kawartha Race Notes:
Kennington Looks to Keep Win Streak Alive: Two-time NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 titlist D.J. Kennington has earned at least one win in six of the seven previous season of series completion, including the last five years in a row, but he has yet to reach Victory Lane in 10 outings this year. Kennington’s last shot at a 2014 win will be this week at Kawartha Speedway, where he has three victories in seven starts.

Top Five Points Streak on the Line for Steckly: Three-time champion Scott Steckly has finished in the top five in the final points standings each year since 2008, but enters the Kawartha finale ranked sixth, a single tally behind Jason Hathaway. Steckley’s only year outside the top five was a 10th-place finish in the 2007 inaugural season.

Kawartha Winner, Series Champion: In each of the two previous seasons, the Pinty’s 250 winner has also earned the season championship. Kennington took home both trophies in 2012 and Steckly matched the feat a year ago. Current season championship contenders L.P. Dumoulin and J.R. Fitzpatrick will vie not only for their first title, but a first win at Kawartha as well.

McColm Positioned for Best Season: Joey McColm has essentially locked-up the best season of his Canadian Tire Series career. Mostly a part-time competitor since 2007, this is just his second full-time campaign. In 2010 McColm posted three top 10s across 13 events and finished 11th in points while this season he’s already recorded a career-best five top 10s and ranks eighth.

Solid Debut Season for Thiering: Rookie Erica Thiering has performed admirably in her first foray in the Canadian Tire Series. In four starts, the Alberta native has posted an average finish of 10.5 and has been the rookie of the race a series-high three times. Thiering ranks second in the rookie standings behind Matthew Scannell, but Saturday’s Pinty’s 250 will be just her fifth start, so she will not meet the required eight starts to be eligible for rookie of the year.

First Oval Race for Camirand, Klutt: They may have a combined 11 Canadian Tire Series appearances between them on road courses, but Saturday’s Pinty’s 250 will be the oval track debuts for Marc-Antoine Camirand and Gary Klutt. Camirand finished third in his most recent series appearance at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in September for his best result in six starts. Klutt’s five previous starts have resulted in a best finish of sixth in that same CTMP race.

Chisholm Looks to Stay Perfect: Donald Chisholm will put his perfect 1-for-1 record this year on the line Saturday at Kawartha. Chisholm took home the checkered flag at his home track, Riverside International Speedway, in his only previous Canadian Tire Series appearance this year. Chisholm has 16 career series starts, 14 of which have come between Riverside and Kawartha. In six previous Kawartha races he has an average finish of 13th.

Last Time Out: Barrie
The 10th race of the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 season was contested on Sept. 6 at Barrie Speedway. Here are some highlights from the Wahta Springs 300:
• Jason Hathaway captured the checkered flag at Barrie for the second year in a row when he won a drag race to the finish line with J.R. Fitzpatrick. It was his fifth career victory.
• Fitzpatrick finished as the runner-up while D.J. Kennington crossed the line in third to tie his season-best finish.
• Fitzpatrick earned his 15th pole prior to the event to move back into a tie with Andrew Ranger for the series’ all-time lead.
• Rookies Eric Thiering and Matthew Scannell, who finished eighth and ninth respectively, registered the best finishes so far in their first year of competition.

Next Time Out: Touring Awards
Following the season finale at Kawartha Speedway, the next engagement on the calendar will be to celebrate all of the NASCAR regional touring series champions at the 2014 NASCAR Touring Awards. The annual postseason event will take place in the Crown Ballroom at the NASCAR Hall of Fame on Dec. 13 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Rob Warnes Becomes Ontario Modifieds Racing Series First Two Time Feature Winner for 2014

Rob Warnes Becomes Ontario Modifieds Racing Series First Two Time Feature Winner for 2014

With just 8 events on the schedule, you might expect that it would be easy to have a single driver dominate the 2014 Ontario Modifieds Racing Series, powered by Torque Builders Inc. events, but that hasn’t been the case.

After losing its most recent event – Saturday, August 16th at Peterborough Speedway – to rain, OMRS teams and drivers returned to Flamboro Speedway Saturday, September 6th to begin the series of events that will close-out this year’s agenda. A strong turnout with a competitive field – bolstered by a pair of drivers who were making their first starts – put on a crowd-pleasing event during the track’s Memorial Race Weekend event.

The father and son duo of Rick and Rob Warnes brought the field to the green flag for the 25 lap main event tilt. As the lap counter clicked-off 4 circuits complete, the top 3 runners had started to break away from the pack. Newcomers Gary Elliott and Kelly Hallett were waging a fierce battle for 6th and 7th spot, as the leaders began working through lapped traffic with 10 laps on the scoreboard.

Rob Warnes, Nick Lees and Ryan Dick found their way around the backmarkers and the event continued clean and green throughout the entire 25 lap distance, with Warnes becoming the series’ first repeat winner. Alex Lees, Rick Warnes, Elliott, Hallett, Chris Burrows, Randy Hollingsworth and Bill Pickford completed the top 10 finishers.

OMRS news and notes: The only serious incident of the day came during the first qualifying heat, when a failed steering component sent Bill Pickford’s #61 machine into the 3rd turn retaining wall before the first lap was complete. Pickford was uninjured, but the car sustained substantial damage. The hard work of crew members from various teams and some fans saw the car return for the feature. Kelly Hallett – crew chief for OSCAAR Late Model driver Shane Gowan – and Gary Elliott were each making their first ever starts with the series.

Hathaway Scores Back-To-Back Barrie Wins Survives Green-White-Checkered Finish For Fifth Career Victory

Hathaway Scores Back-To-Back Barrie Wins Survives Green-White-Checkered Finish For Fifth Career Victory

BARRIE, Ont. (Sept. 6, 2014) – It took a few extra laps, but Jason Hathaway left Barrie Speedway with a win Saturday night.

The Dutton, Ontario, native won the Wahta Springs 300 for the second year in a row. It marked Hathaway’s second NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 victory of the season and fifth of his career.

Pole winner J.R. Fitzpatrick finished second, followed by D.J. Kennington, L.P. Dumoulin and Jeff Lapcevich.

Joey McColm, Noel Dowler, Erica Thiering, Matthew Scannell and Alex Tagliani rounded out the top 10.

Saturday was the best career finish for rookies Thiering and Scannell.

Hathaway became the first back-to-back winner at the track since Scott Steckly won both series events at the .333-mile tri-oval in 2008.

“I knew in the end there, I wasn’t going to give it up, no matter what it took,” Hathaway said. “It was a hell of a battle with J.R. [Fitzpatrick] tonight, and I’m glad it was him and nobody else, because we come out smiling at the end and shaking hands, talking about it all week because he and I are real good buddies.”

An accident on the frontstretch involving Tagliani on Lap 298 set up the green-white-checkered finish attempt. Fitzpatrick, looking for his first Barrie win, got the edge on the restart from the outside row and led by a nose at the white flag, but ultimately couldn’t overcome Hathaway for the checkered flag.

“I got the run I needed, going into Turn 3 (of the final lap) I was ahead and he shoved me up the hill just an extra little bit where I couldn’t get to the throttle as soon as him,” Fitzpatrick said. “It was exciting for the fans. It was close, really close.”

The final margin of victory was a miniscule 0.121 seconds.

With one race to go, Dumoulin now leads Fitzpatrick in the championship standings by a tally of 418-402.

The Wahta Springs 300 will air on TSN5 on Saturday, Sept. 13 at 2 p.m. EDT, and on RDS2 on Thursday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m.

The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series championship will be decided in the season finale on Saturday, Sept. 20 in the Pinty’s 250 at Kawartha Speedway in Fraserville, Ont.

Adam Racine Wins With Lucas Oil CAN-AM Midgets

Adam Racine Wins With Lucas Oil CAN-AM Midgets

Adam Racine came out the winner Saturday night after a long rain delay at Sauble Speedway. After sweeping the doubleheader with the Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets at this same speedway in 2013, his ‘Rookie Year’, Racine went back to his notes to find his winning set up. Earlier in the season he placed 4th and then 2nd at this same track, leading up to his win. Thanking Rob Neely for all he taught him last season in Neely’s car, and all the support from his Dad and family, this was an emotional win for him.

“I have a number of amazing sponsors and friends that allow me to race each weekend. A Big Thanks goes to Brandon Hauck for his ‘set up’, Bill Pippard for this great motor and all his help, Lucas Oil, Columbia Auto Service, Full Throttle, KW Guardian Pharmacy, T-Weber Oil Spraying and Paving, Dennis Maguire, and of course my Dad”, said Racine. “I need to also thank fellow competitors Adrian Stahle and Darren McLennan for all their help while fixing my car after the wreck last weekend at Grand Bend. That’s what this Club is all about”.

At the drop of the green by starter Kyle McKensie, Ryan Fraser took the lead with Stahle second and Racine third. Starting fourth in the 25 lap feature event, Racine wasted no time getting to the front, taking the point on lap three. Fraser hung strong along with Stahle but Racine started to open up a sizable lead. Tyler Turnbull moved into fourth followed by Lucas Smith. Stahle, in a heavy battle with Fraser took over 2nd place on lap 7. Current point’s leader Mack DeMan joined the top five on the same lap. DeMan passed Turnbull and then Fraser to move into third with ten laps in. One lap later DeMan made his move into second with a quick pass on Stahle. Racine’s lead over the field continued to grow with DeMan in hot pursuit at the halfway point. Racine began to lap the field in his very fast TQ #37, with DeMan, Stahle, Fraser, and now McLennan joining the top five.

With five laps to go the first caution came out for a spin by Fraser in turn four. Todd Cresswell, running 7th, went into the pits with a loose wheel. McLennan was now in third. At the restart Chris Holman spun in turn 2, again bringing out the caution flag and tightening up the field for the restart. Holman and Smith went into the pits, done for the night. The final caution came out as Josh Shantz and David Balych made contact in turn four. Both cars went to the back of the field for the restart.

The green flag flew for the final time as Racine knew DeMan was behind him, but he was determined to get that checkered flag. When it flew, Racine was under it for his first win of the season. DeMan was second followed by McLennan, Turnbull in his best finish of the year, and Stahle. Heats were won by Racine and DeMan.

Final finish for the Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets at Sauble Speedway on August 30th is…1. ADAM RACINE, 2.Mack DeMan, 3. Darren McLennan, 4. Tyler Turnbull, 5. Adrian Stahle, 6. Brandon Zavarella, 7. Rob Neely, 8. Stef Haas, 9. David Balych, 10. Barry Dunn, 11. Chris Bauman, 12. Dave Hickson, 13. Josh Shantz, 14. Craig Pitchell, 15. Ryan Fraser, 16. Lucas Smith, 17. Todd Cresswell, 18. Chris Holman.

Top Ten in Driver Points for the Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets as of August 30th are…1. MACK DEMAN…2168, 2. Rob Neely…2034, 3. Darren McLennan…1834, 4. Adam Racine…1780, 5. Adrian Stahle…1702, 6. Todd Cresswell…1695, 7. Lucas Smith…1607, 8. Ryan Fraser…1528, 9. David Balych…1448, 10. Tyler Turnbull…1340.

With one race remaining in the 2014 season for the Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets, the Champion will be crowned at Flamboro Speedway on Saturday, September 20th.

John Owen Returns To OSCAAR Victory Lane For First Time Since 1999

John Owen Returns To OSCAAR Victory Lane For First Time Since 1999

Location: Peterborough Speedway August 30, 2014
What won the race: John Owen lined up for the fifty lap feature event on the pole position and would not give it up. Despite several restarts in which Glenn Watson and Jesse Kennedy tried their best to overtake the #2 of Owen’s, John would not be denied this win. The win was a popular one in front of the home town fans, and emotional John thanked his crew, sponsors and his family for their continued support. Current championship contenders #17 of Kevin Cornelius and #81 of Andrew Gressel both did not have the feature they were hoping for. Both drivers would be involved in incidents which would see them restart at the rear of the field. At the end of the fifty lap event it would be the #17 in fourth and rounding out the top five was the #81 of Gressel. With just two events left Andrew Gressel holds a 37 point lead over second place #17 Kevin Cornelius who has a slight 10 point lead over third place Jesse Kennedy. This event would also mark the end of Rudy Oppersma career. Rudy did not score the finish that he had hoped for, but was still all smiles in the pits as he looks back on over 30 years of racing, and the friends and fun he has had.
Bad Luck of the Event: #16 of Robert Bickle is a home town favorite every time the series rolls into Peterborough Speedway. Unfortunately mechanical problems in practice would keep the #16 sidelined for the night. There was a tie for top qualifier between the #42 of Tyler Hawn and #54 Mike Beyore. Hawn looked poised to challenge for the feature win, when a brake line broke causing a brief fire that ended their night early. Mike Beyore also did not have the feature he had hoped for and ended up in tenth place. Mike Westwood continues to work out the bugs on his new super late model. Craig Stevenson in his #57 was forced to retire early as well from the feature event.
Rookie Battle: The b10 of Kelly Balson was once again the top rookie of the event. Corey Jones made the extensive repairs after Sunset Speedway and the hard work paid off with a heat race win and the second highest rookie in the feature event.
Car Count: 15
Pole Sitter: #54 Mike Beyore
Heat Race Winners: #39 Shane Gowan, #54 Mike Beyore, #17 Kevin Cornelius, #82 Corey Jones
Top Five in points: 1st#81 Andrew Gressel 666 pts, 2nd #17 Kevin Cornelius 629 pts, 3rd #10 Jesse Kennedy 619 pts, 4th #22 Glenn Watson 597 pts, 5th #b10 Kelly Balson
