Flamboro Speedway set to host The Biederman Memorial

Flamboro Speedway set to host The Biederman Memorial

After a great night of racing at Sunset Speedway, the OSCAAR teams are now preparing to tackle Flamboro Speedway this Saturday. The Outlaws will all be after the one trophy they all want The Biederman Memorial, while the Mods and Midgets will also be part of the exciting day of racing.

For fans of big shows this is one they will not want to miss. Along with the three OSCAAR divisions the home track divisions of the pure stocks, mini stocks, thunder cars and pro 4 will also be in attendance. The show will provide racing fans with a full day and night of racing starting at 3:00pm.

The Outlaws will high light the event with the 50 lap Memorial event, which should prove to be one of the best races of the season. Coming into this event the #17 of Kevin Cornelius remains undefeated in feature competition. Each week though his fellow competitors inch ever closer to ending that streak. After last weeks’ event the #84 of JR Fitzpatrick, the #22 of Glenn Watson or the #7 of Derrick Tiemersma have to be early prerace favourites. Fans will also want to take into consideration the home track advantage that the #82 of Cory Jones and #39 Shane Gowan. Kelly Balson and Sean Grosman are still searching for their first feature in on the tour and what would be better than having their name on The Biederman Trophy. However there are two teams that have just confirmed their attendance this weekend that could catch the entire field off guard. The 2015 OSCAAR Champion #81 Andrew Gresel will have his outlaw in attendance, and his team is coming off a big pro late win the week before, so that momentum may just carry over to the super. It has also been confirmed that the #89c of Shawn Chenoweth will be returning to action this weekend. The team has worked endlessly the past few weeks recovering from the Sauble Speedway accident. Fans of Flamboro Speedway know that the #89c of Chenoweth knows his way to victory lane there in thunder and pro late and Shawn would love nothing better than for his first OSCAAR feature win to be at his home track.

No matter who is celebrating in victory lane race fans will be in store for a great 50 lap feature event. With the points race closing down the #17 of Cornelius has a firm hand on the lead and Kelly Balson is in second. But third through fifth place is only separated by 2 points with the #22 of Watson currently third, the #29 of Grosman fourth and the #84 of Fitzpatrick is fifth.

The HOOSIER Mods will be making their only appearance at Flamboro Speedway this coming Saturday and promise to show the fans the best in open wheel competition. The previous OSCAAR Mod event saw a McLean in victory lane, but it wasn’t Gary. Brian McLean and his #47 Mod has won the only OSCAAR sanctioned event at Flamboro. Brian has shown the speed to get the job done again if he could only get some of the racing luck back on his side. While running in the top 5 at Sunset last week an accident would sideline him yet again. Gary McLean has seemed to own victory lane this year and will be looking to get his first OSCAAR sanctioned victory at Flamboro this weekend. Several teams recorded their best series finish last weekend and will be looking to build on that this Saturday. The points lead again is firmly under command of the #8 of McLean, but with a tie for second place between #36 Gary Elliott and #63 John Baker JR, and the #79h of Cory Horner only 3 points behind, every position will be key this weekend.

The Midas of Orangeville Midgets had a well deserved weekend off, but are set to return to action at Flamboro this weekend. At the previous event at Grand Bend Speedway the #48 of Brian Woodland picked up his first OSCAAR feature win, and took over the championship points standing with 4 events left in the season. Brian holds the lead by 1 single point over the #5 of Jody Bound who will be looking to rebound after suffering mechanical issues at the last event. Currently the #84 of Richard Woodland and the #18 of Paul Draganac are tied for third in the points and only 15 out of the top spot. Brian McDonald round out the top 5 in points only 27 behind the leaders. This season has been one where predicting the winner each week has become near impossible as each and every team have improved each and every week. With fields over 24 at most events, the first goal of every driver is simply make the A main. If fans are not familiar with the midget style of racing you are in for a treat, with the side by side, two wide racing, they will keep you on the edge of your seat. The cars maybe small but the action is always big with the midgets

Fans will be able to get further details on the Flamboro website, and OSCAAR looks forward to seeing all the great race fans this weekend.

Cornelius and McLean Victorious at Sunset Speedway

Cornelius and McLean Victorious at Sunset Speedway

Beautiful late summers’ weather welcomed the race fans to Sunset Speedway for an exciting night of OSCAAR racing. The Outlaw drivers where racing in memory of long time OSCAAR competitor Bruce Gowland, and they put on a show that Bruce would have been very proud of. The HOOSIER Mod drivers continue to show the race fans why they are the premier open wheel modified show in Ontario.

Dickies Outlaws By London Recreational Racing:

For the second consecutive year the Outlaw drivers raced in the memory of Bruce Gowland for their fifty lap feature event. Last years’ memorial winner Dwayne Baker was not in attendance so a new name was going to be engraved on the trophy…. The question was who?

Four 10 lap heat races would start the evening off for the Outlaw drivers. JR Fitzpatrick would be the first to flex his muscles by picking up heat race #1 and #4 giving him the distinction of being the top qualifier on the evening. Glenn Watson and his #22 machine recovered from mechanical problems in practice to take the win in heat #2 over a close battle with the #29 of Sean Grosman. Kevin Cornelius entered the night with a perfect win streak in feature competition and would take the win in heat race #3 on the night. The 50 lap feature would see the #22 of Watson on poll along side the #9 of Brandon Watson who was making his first series start in 2 years. Brandon had his template CRA car in competition and would score a 12th place finish in feature competition. From the drop of the green flag it was a four car race at the front. Glenn Watson lead the first 22 laps of the feature with a fierce battle going on behind him. The #84 of Fitzpatrick, the #17 of Cornelius and the #7 of Derrick Tiemersma where all battling door to door lap after lap all looking to mount a challenge on the #22 of Watson. On lap 23, Kevin made his move for the lead and was able to pull away for the second place battle. Every race fan kept their eyes on the battle for second. Watson was on the outside and Fitzpatrick on the inside raced side by side for lap after lap in front of the excited crowd. The two drivers put on a great display of racing giving each other the room and the respect to race it out. With about 10 laps to go Fitzpatrick was finally able to complete the pass for second, but by then the #17 was far enough in the lead that a challenge for the win would not happen. When the checker flag waved it was the #17 of Kevin Cornelius keeping his feature win streak alive, followed by the #84 of JR Fitzpatrick and the #22 of Glenn Watson rounding out the top three. Derrick Tiemersma would finish the night in 4th place followed by the #82 of Corey Jones. Throughout the practice and heat races Corey battled mechanical issues, so the charge from his 14th starting spot to 5th gave the team the momentum heading into his home track Flamboro Speedway next weekend.

The #17 of Cornelius will be looking to continue that winning streak next week at Flamboro Speedway for the Biederman Memorial. Several drivers have next Saturday circled as they look to return to their home track. The #82 of Cory Jones, #39 Shane Gowan, the #89 of Shawn Chenoweth are all looking to use their home track advantage to add their name to the Biederman Trophy. OSCAAR has also received notification that 2015 OSCAAR Champion #81 Andrew Gresel will have his outlaw out for competition.

Racing will start at 3:00pm on Saturday August 29th as the Outlaws honour Don Biederman at a track where he forged his racing history.

Dickies Outlaws By London Recreational Racing feature: 1st #17 Kevin Cornelius, 2nd #84 JR Fitzpatrick, 3rd #22 Glenn Watson, 4th #7 Derrick Tiemersma, 5th #82 Cory Jones, 6th #b10 Kelly Balson, 7th #39 Shane Gowan, 8th #8 Paul Howse, 9th #29 Sean Grosman, 10th #07 Todd Campbell, 11th #27 Roy Passer, 12th #9 Brandon Watson, 13th #16 Robert Bickle, 14th #13 Gary Passer, 15th #3 Rob Gibdon dns, 16th #71c Ethan Cournyea

Top Five Championship: 1st #17 Kevin Cornelius 417 pts, 2nd #b10 Kelly Balson 373 pts, 3rd #22 Glenn Watson 360 pts, 4th #29 Sean Grosman 359 pts, 5th #84 JR Fitzpartick 358 pts

HOOSIER Mods:

With the racing season inching ever closer to the final event of the 2015, the drivers in the HOOSIER Mods know that every point counts in the close battle for the 2015 championship. With 20 of the top modified teams in the province signed in to battle, fans knew they were in for a great night of racing.

Heat race action would start the night off and see the #20 of Mike Hearty pick up his first checker flag in OSCAAR competition. Mike makes the long drive from Sault St Marie for each event and the hard work and dedication paid off in heat #1. Brian McLean picked up heat #2 win and has shown he has the speed each and every week as he searches for his feature win in 2015. Current point leader Gary McLean picked up the win in heat race #3 making him the top qualifier of the night. The final heat race would go to rookie contender #79h Corey Horner who looked poised to take a run for the feature event.

The field for the feature event would be lead to the green by #79h Cory Horner and #79 John Harper with the #79h of Horner getting the jump on the field. Cory would lead the first 8 laps of the feature event before giving up the top spot to the #8 of Gary McLean. It was on lap 21 of the 30 lap feature event that things would take a drastic change. While the leaders were putting a lap on some slower cars, contact was made on the front straight which would see about 12 cars come to a sudden stop. When the smoke cleared several cars would see their night end early. Three of the top 5 would see their feature end, #79 of Horner, #47 McLean and the #14 of Davey Terry would not get the finish they had hoped for. The #15b of Brad Pearsall would also see his night end along with rookie #18 of Dave Lewis. The green would come out with nine laps remaining and the racing was not over yet. Gary McLean set sail and would come home with the feature win. Behind him though it was a night of firsts for many drivers, the #79h of John Harper would record his series best finish with a second place finish. Matt Barton would race his #2 up to third place round out the podium. The #09 of Dan Price would also record his best finish in OSCAAR with a fourth place. Chris Milwain also scored his best finish in OSCAAR with a 5th place in the final run down. Making his return to the series was the #61 of Dustin Jackson who would score a 6th place finish, showing that he still has what it takes to compete with the best in OSCAAR.

The HOOSIER Mods will also be in attendance at Flamboro Speedway this coming weekend, and the question is can anyone stop the #8 of McLean, I guess only time will tell, and as a race fan you will want to ensure you are there to see!

HOOSIER Mod feature: 1st #8 Gary McLean, 2nd #79 John Harper, 3rd #2 Matt Barton, 4th 09 Dan Price, 5th #21 Chris Milwain, 6th #61 Dustin Jackson, 7th #26 Terry Baker, 8th #63 John Baker JR, 9TH #99 AJ Emms, 10th #20 Mike Hearty, 11th #36 Gary Elliott, 12th #96k Monty Kelly, 13th #12 David Balych, 14th #41 Duane Cinnamon, 15th #79h Cory Horner, 16th #47 Brian McLean, 17th #14 Davey Terry, 18th #15b Brad Pearsall, 19th #18 Dave Lewis, 20th #19 Dean Scott dns

HOOSIER Mod top five: 1st #8 Gary McLean 489 pts, 2nd #36 Gary Elliott – #63 John Baker JR 422pts, 3rd #79h Cory Horner 419 pts, 5th #47 Brian McLean

Bruce Gowland Memorial at Sunset Speedway

Bruce Gowland Memorial at Sunset Speedway

The Outlaw drivers are in preparation for this weekends’ memorial event. This Saturday will mark the Second Annual Bruce Gowland Memorial. Race fans in Ontario know that Bruce lived for racing and the drivers of OSCAAR are proud to race in his memory, in the 50 lap feature event.

Kevin Cornelius will be looking to extend his perfect feature victory record in Dickies / London Recreational Racing Outlaw Action and add his name to the memorial trophy. A competitive field will be looking to remove the #17 from the top podium spot. The #84 of JR Fitzpatrick nearly ended the streak at the last event at Peterborough Speedway and the 84 team would love nothing more than to get their first feature win in OSCAAR this coming weekend. Sean Grosman will be returning to his home track in the #29 after having his crew chief sub as the driver at Peterborough Speedway. Kelly Balson continued his streak of podium finishes and looks to carry that momentum into Sunset Speedway and the Memorial win. The last event at Sunset Speedway the #7 of Derrick Tiemersma looked to have the field covered until late race mechanical issue sidelined the team. Look for Derrick to be gunning for the win, not only in the memory of Bruce, but in the memory of his lifelong friend and crew chief Simon. After a hard crash at Delaware Speedway, the #27 of Roy Passer looks to return to action this weekend. Making his second appearance of 2015 will be the #8 of Paul Howse in his Outlaw. Ethan Cournyea has confirmed that he will be in attendance with his #71 machine and the veteran Gary Passer is set to return in his familiar #13 Jenco Equipment Outlaw. Fans will not want to forget the #82 of Cory Jones, the #39 of Shane Gowan, the #07 of Todd Campbell, 47m of Brent McLean will all be there looking for their first feature win in OSCAAR and no better time to do it than at the Bruce Gowland Memorial.

The HOOSIER Mod. The Mod teams are anxious to get back to the race track after a week off after the Peterborough Speedway event. With the competition getting hotter each week and the season starting to wind down, the drivers know they need every point they can get for the championship. Gary McLean has had a hold on the point lead and not looking to let it go any time soon. Gary has had success at Sunset already this year and will be looking to carry that on. Gary Elliott, John Baker JR, Cory Horner are the closest competitors in the points and all are eager for their first series victory. Brad Pearsall and Shane Stickle have been a couple of the drivers that have been able to reach feature victory lane in 2015, and would love nothing more than to add to the win column this weekend. Modified veterans Davey Terry and Matt Barton have been running a limited schedule in 2015 and both teams are here to win and nothing else. Look for these two teams to be battling with the leader all night long. The long list of rookies continue to impress as Mike Hearty returns to the track where he has the most experience. The 99 of AJ Emms suffered mechanical issues at the last event but is ready to get back at it this weekend. David Balych and his #12 mod continues to improve each week and will be looking for his first feature win. Fans will not want to miss a minute of this great open wheel action that only The HOOSIER Mods can bring.

Cornelius, McLean and Bound Feature Winners at Peterborough Speedway

Cornelius, McLean and Bound Feature Winners at Peterborough Speedway

Everyone at OSCAAR would like to take this opportunity to pass along our condolences to the Pettit family and to Derrick Tiemersma and his team. Simon was a great supporter of his team and loved racing and could always be found at the track with a smile on his face. Simon’s sudden passing has left a huge void in racing and with his many friends at the track. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone, as we mourn the loss of a great man.

Dickies / London Recreational Racing Outlaw Action: The Outlaws were ready to return to action this past weekend at Peterborough Speedway for The Chase for the Colours. Every team knows the advantage of coming into the final event having the top two spots secured in the feature event. Qualifying action would start the evening and the first ten lap heat race would go to the #29 of Ryan Kimball, who was subbing for Sean Grosman. The #84 of JR Fitzpatrick would pick up heat race #2 with Mike Beyore returning to racing and scoring the win in heat #3 of the night. The final heat race would belong to the #17 of Kevin Cornelius who was looking to shake the bad luck monkey off his back that he has every time he races at Peterborough. The 50 lap feature event would be lead to the green by the #22 of Glenn Watson and the #47m of Brent McLean. It would only take to lap three for the #84 of Fitzpatrick to grab the lead from Watson and from there Fitzpatrick set sail. It seemed nothing was going to stop Fitzpatrick from grabbing his first feature win as at times he built up a half track lead on the #17 of Cornelius and the #b10 of Balson. But like the say it not over till it’s over, suddenly Fitzpatrick car slowed and then refired allowing the field to catch him On lap 43 of 50 Cornelius made his move and took over the top spot. A red flag on lap 47 which saw Mike Beyore in his #54 take a hard hit into the turn 1 wall. Thankfully Mike was able to walk away but the car suffered major damage and was done for the night. That set up a 3 lap shoot out to the finish and the #17 and #84 went at it giving the fans the finish they all wanted to see. Coming out of turn two on the final lap the #84 of Fitzpatrick made a run up the inside of the #17 and the two were side by side down the back stretch. Coming to the checkers it was the #17 of Cornelius keeping his season feature win average at 100% by edging the #84 of Fitzpartick by half a car length. The best seat in the house belonged to the #b10 of Kelly Balson as he recorded yet another top podium finish at the end of the feature. Rounding out the top 5 in the feature where the #29 of Ryan Kimball and the #22 of Glenn Watson.

This has locked the #17 of Kevin Cornelius and the #84 of JR Fitzpatrick on the front row for the 50 lap season ending Autumn Colours Classic.

Dickies / London Recreational Racing Feature finish: 1st #17 Kevin Cornelius, 2nd #84 JR Fitzpatrick, 3rd #b10 Kelly Balson, 4th#29 Ryan Kimball, 5th #22 Glenn Watson, 6th #39 Shane Gowan, 7th #16 Robert Bickle , 8th #47m Brent McLean, 9th #54 Mike Beyore, 10th #82 Matt Pleil (sub for Corey Jones)

Dickies / London Recreational Racing top 5: 1st #17 Kevin Cornelius 343 pts, 2nd b10 309 pts, 3rd 29 Sean Grosman 297 pts, 4th #22 Glenn Watson 296 pts, 5th #84 JR Fitzpatrick 287 pts

Inside Track Hard Charger: 1st #17 Kevin Cornelius 35pts, 2nd #39 Shane Gowan 25 pts, 3rd #29 Sean Grosman 18 pts, 4th #13 Gary Passer 14 pts, 5th #b10 Kelly Balson 13 pts

The HOOSIER Mods: The OSCAAR Mods made their one and only stop at Peterborough Speedway prior to the Chase for the Colours on Saturday. The fast 1/3 mile oval always provides some great open wheel action for the OSCAAR fans. Several teams had long weeks in the garage and in some cases the emergency room in order to compete on the weekend. The never give up attitude paid off for the 3 time defending HOOSIER Mod Champion as Gary McLean’s crew spent hours in the garage, while Gary tended to his broken right hand. But nothing was going to stop the #8 as he picked up the 30 lap feature win over home town favorite #63 John Baker JR. The two had a couple of intense feature restarts and I have a feeling that excitement is going to carry over to The Autumn Colours Classic for the 50 lap feature event to determine the 2015 Champion.

Preliminary action would see the #8 of Gary McLean the first to celebrate in victory lane with the win in heat race #1. Another home town favorite #79h Cory Horner would make his fans happy with the win in heat race #2 on the night. The #8 of McLean let everyone know in heat race three he was the one to beat by picking up his second win of the night. The final checker flag in heat race competition would go to the #21 of Chris Milwain, making only his third start of the 2015 season.

The of the HOOSIER Mod rookies would lead the field to green with the #12 of David Balych and the #20 of Mike Hearty showing the way. The #12 of Balych would hold the top spot till lap 4 when the #63 of John Baker would take over command. The #63 had a rearview mirror full of the familiar #8 of McLean who would make his move on lap eight for the lead and never look back. A few cautions for single car spins would slow the field but no one was going to deny McLean the victory. As the checker flag waved the #8 and #63 would be followed by the #77 of Chad Strawn in third with #47 Brian McLean in fourth and rounding out the top five was the #79h of Cory Horner.

The HOOSIER Mods have a much needed two week break before returning to action at Sunset Speedway as part of the Gowland Memorial Event.

HOOSIER MOD FEATURE FINISH: 1st #8 Gary McLean, 2nd #63 John Baker JR, 3RD #77 Brian Strawn, 4th #47 Brian McLean, 5th #79h Cory Horner, 6th #79 John Harper, 7th #20 Mike Hearty, 8th #46 Gary Elliott, 9th #09 Dan Price, 10th #21 Chris Milwain, 11th #41 Duane Cinnamon 12th 312 David Balych, 13th #46 Chris Mulders, 14th #99 Drew Stieler, 15th #18 Dave Lewis DNS

HOOSIER MOD TOP 5: 1ST #8 Gary McLean 415 pts, 2nd #77 Chad Strawn 381 pts, 3rd #36 Gary Elliott 368 pts, 4th #63 John Baker JR 367 pts, 5th #79h Cory Horner 366 pts

Inside Track Hard Charger: 1st #8 Gary McLean 30 pts, 2nd #79h Cory Horner 25 pts, 3rd #20 Mike Hearty – #77 Chad Strawn 24 pts, 5th #88r Tommy Robb

The Midas of Orangeville Midgets : The 2015 season would be the first time that the Midgets would be a part of the Chase for the Colours. There probably isn’t a division that competes at Autumn Colours where the security of being locked in means more. The midgets run a one day show, and with the fields of cars each week the #83 of Jamie Bound and the #48 of Brian Woodland are going to be able to sleep just a little better leading up to that event. The past few events have seen the #83 of Bound the car to beat when it comes time for feature action. The question was can anyone put an end to his dominance. Heat race action would start the nights events with a first time winner the #57 James Stanley picking up his first ever OSCAAR Midget win. Jamie Bound and his #83 would take the victory in heat number 2, with the #62 of Rob McCall taking the checkers in heat number three. Jessica James would take the final heat race win in dominating fashion and appeared to be an early prerace favorite for the feature win. With 22 Midas Midgets set to take the green for 25 laps being led by the #5 of Jody Bound and the #85 of Rob Summers it didn’t take long for the action to start. Current point leader #5 of Jody Bound would lead the early laps until making contact with a lapped car sending him to the rear for the restart. This handed the lead over to #83 of Jody Bound with the #2 of Jessica James close behind. The #2 of James would make a self admitted mistake that took her out of the race which allowed the #48 of Brian Woodland to move into the second place. The #48 ended the Sauble event on his roof and this week Brian had to out run his brother #84 Richard Woodland to secure his second place finish. When the checker flag waved it was the #83 of Bound, followed by the #48 of Woodland and the #84 of Richard Woodland . Rounding out the top five where the #53 of Dave Bradley in fourth and the #62 of Rob McCall in fifth.

The Midas Midgets will be enjoying a much needed week off before heading to Grand Bend Speedway in two weeks.

Midas of Orangeville Midgets Feature Finish: 1st #63 Jamie Bound, 2nd #48 Brian Woodland, 3rd #84 Richard Woodland, 4th #53 Dave Bradley, 5th #62 Rob McCall, 6th #42 Brian McDonald, 7th #3 Lorne VanDusen, 8th #85 Rob Summers, 9th #75 Shawn Stanley, 10th #86 Raynor Vickers, 11th #74 David Gallinger, 12th #24 Ryan Brown, 13th #38 Alex Cuzzila, 14th #69 Wally Wilson, 15th #2 Jessica James, 16th #71 Wayne McKibbon, 17th Paul Drananoc, 18th #8 Larry Lawson, 19th #26 Katherine Summers, 20th #5 Jody Bound, 21st #57 James Stanley, 22nd #49 Dave Campbell dns

OSCAAR Drivers Ready For Chase For the Colours

OSCAAR Drivers Ready For Chase For the Colours

In what has become a yearly tradition the August long weekend means it is time for the drivers of OSCAAR to tackle Peterborough Speedway. For the past three years this event has taken on a new meaning when it became the Chase for the Colours.

The Autumn Colours Classic is the biggest event in racing in Ontario and the event where all three of the 2015 OSCAAR Champions will be crowned. The Chase of the Colours this weekend will make two drivers very happy heading into the yearend event. The drivers that finish first and second in each of the features this weekend will lock themselves into those positions for the year end event.

Everyone knows the pressure that is on the drivers that weekend and to have that security to be locked in is something that every driver would love to have.

The Dickies Outlaws brought to you by London Recreational Racing will be closing out the night with a 50 lap main event. The action is always hot and fast at the 1/3 mile oval and the Outlaws will keep you on the edge of your seat all night. Home track advantage is what just what the b10 of Kelly Balson and the #54 of Mike Beyore will both be looking for. The two have been fast all year and still on the search for their first series feature win.

The HOOSIER Mods are set to show the fans the high speed action of open wheel racing at its best. With four different feature winners so far in 2015 it is anyone’s guess what might happen this weekend. There are three rookie HOOSIER Mod drivers that call Peterborough Speedway home. The #63 of John Baker Jr, the #79h of Cory Horner and the #09 of Dan Price would all love nothing better than to get that win in front of the home town crowd this weekend.

The Midas of Orangville Midget will be making their 3rd appearance of 2015 this weekend. The two previous races have produced some wild action and fans can be assured of the same this weekend. The #83 of Jamie Bound has won the past couple of feature events, but last time #2 Jessica James had her second feature locked up till mechanical issues sidelined her late in the race. The #84 of Richard Woodland picked up a feature win earlier in the season at Peterborough and fans can expect to see him back up front this weekend. With a full field of midgets expected fans can expect to see some great racing action from the drop of the green flag to the checker.

Prior to racing Peterborough Speedway and OSCAAR will be hosting a pre race corn roast as a thank you to all the great fans that come out each week and support the races. The corn will be ready by 5:00pm with the first green flag of the night at 6:00pm. Fans will also want to ensure they get their copy of the 25th Anniversary OSCAAR Program as well.

One Wild Weekend of Racing at The Beach

One Wild Weekend of Racing at The Beach

While many people were suffering through a wet rainy Saturday, the race fans where enjoying the hot summer weather that had made Sauble Beach famous. A near capacity crowd filled the stands and where ready for some exciting racing action, that Sauble Speedway is famous for.

Dickies / London Recreational Racing Outlaw Action: A very competitive and fast field signed in to battle for the fifty lap main event. The first order of business would be qualifying whereOSCAAR @ Sauble Speedway 2015 Heat 2 (2 of 4) we would see some new names in victory lane. The #07 of Todd Campbell would pick up heat race one, and the b10 of Kelly Balson would take the victory in heat race #2 rounding out first round qualifying. Picking up his first checker flag in 2015 was the #84 of JR Fitzpatrick in heat 3, with Sean Grosman in the #29 taking the win in the final heat race. The stage was set for the 50 lap main event as the #29 of Grosman and the #17 of Cornelius would lead the field to the green flag. An incident in turn one on the start involving the #07 of Campbell and the #7 of Derrick Tiemersma would see a complete restart in order. It was on lap three that the worst accident in OSCAAR history occurred. The #89c of Shawn Chenoweth was on the outside of the #29 of Grosman and 47m of McLean when the 89c climbed the wall. The car became air born and tore out a huge section of the safety fence, along with damaging the starter stand. The emergency crew, along with the OSCAAR officials were right on the scene to ensure that everyone was ok. Thankfully all drivers were able to walk away from the accident. Also the safety fence did its job but unfortunately it could not be replaced and the event had to be called at lap 3. The safety that these drivers build into these cars is second to none, and it was for that reason that all drivers walked away with no injuries. Work is underway to repair some cars, but unfortunately this will be the end of the #89c season in the series. On a personal note I never like seeing cars wrecked, but most importantly I was very happy to see all my friends were able to walk away from that accident to race again another day.

As a result of the feature being incomplete, all drivers in attendance were awarded 40 show up points along with their heat race points earned.

Dickies / London Recreational Racing top 5: 1st #17 Kevin Cornelius 269 pts, 2nd b10 241 pts, 3rd 22 Glenn Watson 233 pts, 4th #82 Corey Jones 231 pts, 5th #29 Sean Grosman 230 pts

The HOOSIER Mods: A very impressive field of 19 of the best open wheel modifieds in the province where ready to do battle at the beach. First up for the mods would be the qualifying rounds OSCAAR @ Sauble Speedway 2015 Modified Top 3 (8 of 8)which again would see some new faces in victory lane. Starting the night off would be a familiar sight with the #8 of Gary McLean picking up heat race #1. Keeping the McLean name in victory lane would be Brian as he parked the #47 in victory circle for heat race #2 and #5 making Brian the top qualifier on the night. After Peterborough Speedway was rained out the #77 of Chad Strawn made the long trip to Sauble and would pick up heat race #3. A first time heat race winner in the series would be #19 Dean Scott who picked up heat race #4 and Brad Pearsall would pick up his first on the night with a win in heat race #6 in his #15b modified. The field was set for the 30 lap feature event but the green flag as short lived as a spin in turn two would force a complete restart. It was there that things went bad, as a spin at the front of the field stacked up and sent the field scattering trying to avoid the accident. The #88 of Ryan Dick received possibly the worst of the deal has his car laid on its roof just past the starters stand. Thankfully Ryan was able to emerge from his car with minor scratches. In speaking to Ryan yesterday the team is already on the search for a new chassis and hopes to be back in action my late August of this year. This accident also sidelined the #8 of Gary McLean, the #2 of Matt Barton who was making his tour debut, along with the #19 of Dean Scott. When the green flag waved it was the #36 of Gary Elliott taking command until Chad Strawn put the #77 at the front of the field. It was on a lap 15 restart that saw the 77 of Strawn line up beside the #15b of Pearsall. The two dragged race down the back stretch with Pearsall getting the advantage coming out of turn 4. From there on out it was all Brad Pearsall at the front as he opened up his lead and claimed his first HOOSIER Modified feature win of his career. Chad Strawn would hold on for second place followed by the #39 of Shane Stickle. On the opening lap the #88r of Tommy Robb would find himself in the wall in turn 3 suffering heavy damage. In speaking to Tommy, he has decided to step back from the tour to rebuild and regroup with plans to return to the tour in 2016. This is one team that has had their share of bad luck, all the fans of OSCAAR look forward to the #88r return to the series.

HOOSIER MOD FEATURE FINISH: 1ST #15B Brad Pearsall, 2nd #77 Chad Strawn, 3rd #39 Shane Stickel, 4th#63 John Baker Jr, 5th #36 Gary Elliott, 6th #20 Mike Hearty, 7th #79h Cory Horner, 8th #99 AJ Emms, 9th #96k Monty Kelly, 10th #47 Brain McLean, 11th #13eh Mark Saul, 12th #10 Rob Di Venanzo, 13th #19 Dean Scott, 14th #8 Gary McLean, 15th #88 Ryan Dick, 16th #2 Matt Barton, 17th #79 John Harper,18th #88r Tommy Robb, 19th #12 David Balych DNS

The Midas of Orangeville Midgets : Coming off a busy weekend at Peterborough Speedway, 25 Midas Midgets would sign in to do battle this weekend at Sauble Speedway for a 25 lap mainOSCAAR @ Sauble Speedway 2015 Top 3 (6 of 6) event. Prior to the feature the fans were treated to some great heat race action. The first heat would see the #62 of Rob McCall take the victory. Current points leader would add a little padding to that lead with a victory in heat race #2 . Rob McCall would serve notice in heat race #3 that he might be the man to beat at Sauble Speedway by picking up his second win of the night. The final heat race would see a familiar face smiling for the camera as the #83 of Jamie Bound picked up the win. The 25 lap feature event would see the #2 of Jessica James and #48 Brian Woodland lead them to the green. The past weeks has seen the #2 of James battling for wins, but motor gremlins would sideline Jessica to the pits on lap 2 of the feature. By then the #83 of Jamie Bound had made his way to the front of the field and set sail leading the next 23 laps to pick up another feature win. The action is always fast and furious with the midgets, as drivers jockey for track position as the laps wind down. Keeping it a family affair the #5 of Jody Bound took home a second place finish. #57 Shawn Stanley recorded his best ever OSCAAR Midget finish with a third place in the feature event. With no time to rest the teams are hard at work preparing for this coming Saturdays racing action at Peterborough Speedway.

OSCAAR Preparing To “Hit the Beach” This Weekend

OSCAAR Preparing To “Hit the Beach” This Weekend

The cars and stars of all three of OSCAAR’s premier divisions are heading to Sauble Beach for their annual visit to Sauble Speedway.

Kevin Cornelius will be looking to extend his perfect feature victory record in Dickies / London Recreational Racing Outlaw Action. A competitive field will be looking to remove the #17 from the top podium spot. Leading that charge will be two drivers looking for their first feature win in OSCAAR. The b10 of Kelly Balson and #82 of Cory Jones would love nothing better than to be celebrating victory as The Beach. Glenn Watson has tasted victory before at Sauble Speedway and has been getting ever closer to returning to victory lane. Perhaps the rookie Sean Grosman in his #29 machine will show the veterans how to get it done. Fans will want to be watching for the #84 of JR Fitzpatrick who is looking to shake that monkey off his back. Todd Campbell in his #07 will be returning to the place where he recorded his best ever finish in OSCAAR, the quite guy might just catch them all sleeping this weekend. Sauble Speedway regular Doug Wilson is expected to be in attendance along with 2014 OSCAAR Champion #81 of Andrew Gressel.

The HOOSIER Mods are set to bring the fans of Sauble Speedway some great open wheel racing this weekend. Gary McLean and his #8 was out showing the fans last week what they can expect to see this weekend. Gary has a pretty good grasp on the points lead at this time but there is still plenty of racing left to do. Gary Elliott in his #36 will be looking to erase some of those points this weekend with another strong run. The rookies of Cory Horner and John Baker Jr have served notice that they are ready to race with the leaders and could record their first feature win in the series. Veteran Brian McLean has been slowly working his way into the points race and with experience on his side he could just be the one to get the job done Saturday. Scheduled to make their 2015 race season debut is the #2 of Matt Barton who has had strong runs at Sauble. Rob Di Venanzo in his #10 modified will be making his first ever start in the series. The former TQ Midget stand out will be looking to draw on that experience this weekend.

The Midas of Orangeville Midgets have had a busy race season, but the teams are excited to return to Sauble Speedway for their only visit in 2015. After an exciting event at Peterborough Speedway last week which left some teams licking their wounds and others celebrating in victory lane, fans will see a great field of cars this weekend again. The championship points race is the tightest in all of racing in Ontario with a mere two points separating the top two. Jody Bound in his #5 is currently sitting in first with the #18 of Paul Drananoc in second, who is still searching for his first feature win of 2015. Brian Woodland has been having a great consistent season and currently sits in third place in points, and within easy striking distance of the leaders. Richard Woodland lead the points early this year but some bad luck has him sitting in fourth place, but look for him to rebound to reclaim that top spot. Brian McDonald rounds out the top five. Jessica James in her #2 and Jamie Bound in the #83 have been the cars to beat the past couple of weeks. A full field of Midgets are expected this week that will see both the #13 of Craig Deacon and the #69 of home town driver Wally Wilson returning to action after both being upside down last weekend at Peterborough Speedway.

Racing action is set to get underway at 7:00pm on Saturday July 25th at Sauble Speedway. Please ensure to visit www.oscaar.ca for all the latest updates.

Kevin Cornelius Still Having Perfect Season, Justin Demelo Defends Home Turf

Kevin Cornelius Still Having Perfect Season, Justin Demelo Defends Home Turf

Delaware Speedway played host to the Dickies Outlaws and the Hoosier Modifieds on July 10th. During the off season the management of Delaware asked their fans what series they would most like to see back at the ½ mile oval in 2015. The over whelming answer was OSCAAR and the fans came out in huge numbers to support the return of the series. They enjoyed the high speed of the Outlaws along with the great open wheeled action of the mods.

The racing results at the end of the night will show home town and fan favorite Justin DeMelo celebrating his first OSCAAR win of 2015, and Kevin Cornelius who is still having that perfect season winning streak.

Dickies Outlaws By London Recreational Racing:

It had been three years since the familiar sound and speed of the Outlaws had raced at Delaware Speedway. The previous visit would see 5 time OSCAAR Champion Rob Clarke take the win and the familiar #49 was back in action Friday in front of his home town fans. Unfortunately an incident on lap one would end “The Champs” hopes of defending the race win. In preliminary race action would see the #17 of Kevin Cornelius, the #7 of Derrick Tiemersma , the #49 of Clarke and the#54 of Mike Beyore all pick up wins, to set the field for the 50 lap main event. The field would be lead to green by the #54 of Beyore and the #82 of Corey Jones, with Beyore getting the lead for the first few laps. On lap three the familiar #89c of Shawn Chenoweth making his second start of the season would firmly plant himself in the lead spot. It was during one of the cautions that Mike Beyore would be overcome with fumes and be forced to park his car for the night. Chenoweth would continue to hold off all challengers until lap 28 when the #17 of Cornelius would make his move for the lead. Following the #17 was the very familiar #10 of Jesse Kennedy who was making his first start of the 2015 season with the tour, and was coming off a big pro late model series win a couple of weeks earlier. The #10 would try everything to get around the 17 but would have to settle for a second place finish at the end. Sitting back watching the great battle up front was the #7 of Derrick Tiemersma who would record his first podium finish of 2015 with a third place run. The #22 of Glenn Watson would record his best finish of the young season with a fourth place followed by sophomore driver #b10 Kelly Balson.

Dickies Outlaws By London Recreational Racing Feature Finish Delaware: 1st #17 Kevin Cornelious, 2nd #10 Jesse Kennedy, 3rd #7 Derrick Tiemersma, 4th #22 Glenn Watson, 5th #b10 Kelly Balson, 6th #82 Cory Jones, 7th #29 Sean Grosman, 8th #27 Roy Passer, 9th #39 Shane Gowan, 10th #89c Shawn Chenoweth, 11th #91 Mike Westwood, 12th #84 JR Fitzpatrick, 13th #54 Mike Beyore, 14th #42 Tyler Hawn, 15th #52 Gary Passer, 16th #49 Rob Clarke, 17th #40p Charlie Gallant

HOOSIER Modifieds:

The Hoosier Mod and modified racing has a long tradition at the ½ mile oval just outside of Komoka Ontario. This Friday would see 19 of the best in Ontario sign in for competition. This event would see four teams make their 2015 debut. The #5 of DJ Christie has a lot of laps in a late model at Delware, but this was the debut of the #5 mod as they prepare for a full season in 2015. Monty Kelly in the 96k returned to the tour for the first time, some bad luck in the feature event would not give the team the results they hoped for but they will be ready to tackle Sauble in a few weeks. The #26 of Terry Baker returned to OSCAAR competition taking an advantage of an off weekend from his pro late model. Rookie contender #41 Duane Cinnamon made his first series start along with veteran #79 John Harper who made his first start since his hard crash at Autumn Colours in 2014. The four heat races would see the #12 of David Balych, #8 Gary McLean each getting a win, with Justin DeMelo picking up two qualifying wins. The 25 lap main event would be lead to the green by the #8 of McLean and the #99 of AJ Emms, but it would not take long for the top qualifier of DeMelo to assert that power at the front of the field. Justin would lead 21 of the 25 lap feature event. Behind him there was some serious racing going on as everyone was jockeying for position hoping to take a run at the #82. When the checkerflag waved the #82 had built up a near 4 second lead over second place #63 John Baker JR, 3rd place #8 Gary McLean, 4th place #26 of Terry Baker and 5th place #47 Brian McLean. The Mod drivers will now enjoy a well earned weekend off before resuming the racing action at Sauble Speedway on July 25th.

Outlaws and Mods Heading to Delaware Speedway

Outlaws and Mods Heading to Delaware Speedway

With Mother Nature coming out on top at Sunset Speedway, the OSCAAR teams are excited to be heading to Delaware Speedway this Friday. With the rain giving the teams that extra time off they are all anxious to get back to the track. The big half mile track is the biggest on the circuit and gives the teams the chance to really stretch the gas pedal and provide the fans with some great high speed racing action.

OSCAAR is also pleased to present their 25th Anniversary Series Program this weekend. With over fifty pages of history including articles, photos, a full current driver profile pages for all three divisions. This magazine will definitely be something that every race fan will need in their collection.

Dickies Outlaw Super Late Models presented by London Recreational Racing:

It has been three years since the Outlaws last competed at Delaware Speedway. This event will be the third of season and could prove to be critical in the points chase. Current championship leader and winner of the first two events of 2015 #17 Kevin Cornelius will be seeing Delaware Speedway for the first time this Friday. Kelly Balson has started off the season with two podium finishes and has some experience which just maybe enough to give the team their first feature win. Todd Campbell also has laps under his belt in late models at Delaware and is quietly sitting in third place in points, Todd might just sneak in take one when his competitors least expect it. Several teams have been at Delaware Speedway practicing leading up to this event. The #84 of JR Fitzpatrick probably has the most laps in various types of race cars and will be looking to shake the bad luck monkey off his back this Friday. Corey Jones finds himself in fourth place in points after two events, and the #82 has also been turning laps prior to this event, as the team edges closer to their first feature win in the series. This Friday will also be the return of two OSCAAR veterans who have both tasted victory at Delaware before. The familiar #10 of Jesse Kennedy pulled off an impressive pro late model win the other week and will be looking for his second career feature win with OSCAAR this Friday. The 5 time OSCAAR Champion #49 of Rob Clarke is ready to return to action to defend his home turf. Delaware Speedway was the site of Rob’s last feature win with the series. Both drivers will also be at select other races in 2015. The great fans of OSCAAR asked for the Outlaws back and they will not be disappointed with the great racing action.

HOOSIER Modifieds

The HOOSIER Mods also enjoyed an unexpected week off and are set to return to action this Friday at Delaware Speedway. The previous event saw the Mods at the tight confines of Full Throttle Speedway a drastic change from the big half mile at Delaware Speedway. The track has a long history of modified racing and the fans continue to come out and support their favorite drivers when the tour rolls into town. The regulars of the Mod Tour know that the home town boys will be out to defend their home turf, which always provides great racing action. Three time champion Gary McLean continues to lead the points and has had success at Delaware before and will be looking for feature win #3 of the season. #39 of Shane Stickle picked up the win at Full Throttle and will be a serious contender this weekend. Gary Elliott continues to impress in the mod and is currently second in points coming off a strong second place run at The Woolner Memorial. The Rookies are all anticipating their first try at Delaware and fans could very easily witness a first time winner of the series. There are several teams looking to make this event their first start of the 2015 season. Most notably TJ Woolsey recently acquired a modified and is working hard to debut this Friday. John Harper, Terry Baker and Monty Kelly are all scheduled to be in attendance this weekend.

The Delaware fans love the open wheel Mods, and the tour is ready to provide them with some great racing action this weekend!

Three Drivers Make it a Clean Sweep at Sunset Speedway

Three Drivers Make it a Clean Sweep at Sunset Speedway

For the second time in 2015, Sunset Speedway hosted OSCAAR with all three of their touring divisions. Fans were treated to an on track autograph session before settling into their seats for a great night of racing action. With the pre-race ceremonies in the book it was time to get down for some on track racing excitement.

Dickies Outlaw Super Late Models presented by London Recreational Racing:

With the previous weeks event at Flamboro Speedway cancelled the Outlaws were ready to get back on track. The heat races showed that these teams came to race. Heat #1 would see the #7 of Derrick Tiemersma pick up his first checker flag of 2015. Current point leader #17 Kevin Cornelius would pick up the wins in heat #2 and #3. Also getting his first checker of the year was the #22 of Glenn Watson in heat #4. The fifty lap feature event would be the final event of the evening and it was well worth the wait. The #b10 of Kelly Balson and the #54 of Mike Beyore would lead the field to green with Beyore getting the jump on the field. Mike was back in his familiar ride and would lead the field for the first twelve laps of the event. The fastest car all night had been the #7 of Derrick Tiemersma and on lap thirteen used all that power to move to lead. Derrick had opened up a half lap lead on the rest of the field until a late race caution would bunch the field up for a restart. With the #7 taking the high lane that left the bottom for #17 of Kevin Cornelius who had worked his way up to second place. The restart would see some contact with the #7 getting into the outside retaining wall. The resulting damage would sideline the #7 on lap 42 and see their hopes of feature win fade away. It was now the #17 and #54 lining up for the restart with the #17 getting the advantage and going on to take their second feature win of 2015. Mike Beyore recorded his best feature finish in OSCAAR with a second place run, with Kelly Balson in the B10 rounding out the podium. Rookie contender #29 of Sean Grossman battled back from being a lap down to record his best OSCAAR finish in fourth place. Glenn Watson recovered from their opening weekend motor issues to round out the top five at the conclusion of the feature event.

The outlaws are now off to regroup until the series returns to Sunset Speedway on June 27th, an event no one will want to miss.

Feature Finish: 1st #17 Kevin Cornelius, 2nd #54 Mike Beyore, 3rd #b10 Kelly Balson, 4th #29 Sean Grossman, 5th #22 Glenn Watson, 6th #07 Todd Campbell, 7th #42 Tyler Hawn, 8th #40p Charlie Gallant, 9th #82 Cory Jones, 10th #39 Shane Gowan, 11th #13 Gary Passer, 12th #84 JR Fitzpatrick, 13th #7 Derrick Tiemersma, 14th #3 Rob Gibson, 15th #71c Ethan Cournyea, 16th #27 Roy Passer

HOOSIER Modifieds

The Hoosier Modifieds put on some great open wheel action for the fans Saturday night. With 19 drivers signed in for action, everyone was wondering was tonight the night that someone can stop the #8 of Gary McLean. With the qualifying heats up first, the #83 of Justin DeMelo making his first start of 2015 would pick up his first checker flag of the season. Heat race number two would see the closest finish in Hoosier Modified history with the #8 of McLean taking the win by less than 1000th of a second over the #77 of Chad Strawn. Heat #4 would see that same two battling it out again with the #8 of McLean besting the #77. The #14 of Davey Terry also made his first start of 2015 and recorded a victory in heat race #3. The 30 lap feature would see the #15 of Brad Pearsall line up beside outside pole starter #14 of Davey Terry. The #14 of Terry would jump out to an early lead for the first six laps of the event. Lucky lap seven would see the #15 of Pearsall make his move to the lead until lap ten when the #8 of Gary McLean would take over the top spot which he would hold onto to capture his second feature event of 2015. The hard charger of the event was the#79h of Cory Horner who started the event in thirteenth place. At the end of the event everyone was asking where the #79h came from and left people wondering if he had something for the #8 of McLean. Rounding out the top three was the #15 of Brad Pearsall who was making his first start of 2015 after taking a year off. Davey Terry and Ryan Dick rounded out the top five.

This coming weekend will see the Hoosier Modifieds heading to Full Throttle Motorsports Park for round 1 of the Rick Woolner Memorial. If you have never made the trip to Full Throttle this is the perfect opportunity to visit the home of the modifieds.

Midas of Orangeville Midgets:

The Midas of Orangeville Midgets have been the busiest touring group in Ontario so far in 2015, as they entered into their third event of the season this weekend. Thirty one teams signed in to do battle at Sunset Speedway. With the field divided into three heat race groups, everyone was hoping to make the top twenty in heat race points to avoid running the B main. Robin McLean in the #97 gave notice early that he would be one to watch in the feature event by picking up the checkers in heat #1 and heat #6. After missing the previous event at Peterborough Speedway the #83 was back and just as fast as ever as Jamie picked up wins in heat #2 and #5. Other heat race winners would be #5 Jody Bound and current points leader #84 Richard Woodland. The final 4 drivers to qualify out of the B Main would be the #77 of James Rodgers, #98 Kevin Spiez, #71 Wayne McKibbon and #13 Craig Deacon. With the 24 car field set for 25 laps of racing action it would not take long for the #83 of Jamie Bound to establish himself as the leader and the one to beat in the feature. However on a lap twelve restart the left front wheel would fall off entering turn two, thus ending his dominate performance. By this time lurking in the back ground was the #97 of Robing McLean who took over the top stop and would go on to record his first feature win of 2015 and completing a clean sweep on the night. After a rough outing at Peterborough Speedway the #5 of Jody Bound recorded at second place finish, with the #68 of Adam Carrothers rounding out the top three.

OSCAAR’S 25th Anniversary Season Continues at Sunset Speedway

Mother Nature may have taken the win last weekend. But it is a new week and Ontario’s premier racing teams are ready to kick the season back into high gear this weekend at Sunset Speedway. For the first time OSCAAR will showcase all three of their premier divisions with complete show on Saturday for the OSCAAR The Midas of Orangeville Midgets, The Hoosier Modifieds and The Dickies Outlaw Super Late Models. Fans will want to arrive early to take part in the prerace autograph session, where you can meet the cars and stars of the series.

The complete schedule of events can be found on the OSCAAR website at www.oscaar.ca or at www.sunsetspeedway.ca .

The Dickies OSCAAR Outlaws presented by London Recreational Racing:

With the second event of the season losing out to weather last weekend, the Outlaws are set to return to Sunset Speedway for the second time in 2015. The opening round of the series would see preseason championship hopeful Kevin Cornelius picking up the feature win. Capturing his best series finish b10 Kelly Balson recorded a second place finish with #07 Todd Campbell rounding out the top three. The return to Sunset Speedway will see a couple of teams looking for redemption as the #29 of Sean Grosman and #84 JR Fitzpatrick showed the speed to win, but were both sidelined early. Several teams where very happy to have the extra week to prepare for this event. With the USA Memorial Day holiday it put several teams in jeporady of missing last weeks’ event. The rain dance worked and will allow the #22 of Glenn Watson, #7 Derrick Tiemersma and #42 Tyler Hawn to be ready for competition this coming weekend. The Outlaws are ready to show the fans some exciting racing this weekend with a complete show of heats and 50 lap feature event.

Top Five in Points: 1st #17 Kevin Cornelius 72pts, 2nd #b10 Kelly Balson 66pts, 3rd #07 Todd Campbell 64pts, 4th (tie) #82 Cory Jones – #40p Charlie Gallant 62 pts

The HOOSIER OSCAAR Modified Series:

If fans were not at the opening Hoosier Modified event, they missed one of the best feature events of the Spring Velocity Weekend. The open wheel stars put on a great race through out the entire field. Gary McLean picked up his first feature win of the season, but I think he be the first one to say, the 2015 field is going to provide some great competition. The 30 lap feature event would see Gary have a race long battle with the #39 of Shane Stickle who did everything that he could hoping to record his first series win. Rounding out the top three was the #79h of Cory Horner, who gave notice although the rookies might have that yellow stripe on their cars, they are ready to compete with the veterans of the series. Several teams where looking to make their debut at Flamboro Speedway this past weekend, but the weather changed their plans. Fans can expect to see a full field of the top open wheeled Hoosier Modifieds this weekend at Sunset Speedway

Top Five in Points: 1st #8 Gary McLean 72pts, 2nd #39 Shane Stickle 70pts, 3rd #79h Cory Horner 69 pts, 4th #36 Gary Elliott 66 pts, 5th #77 Chad Strawn 65pts

Inside Track Hard Charger: 1st #47 Brian McLean 10pts, 2nd #12 David Balych 9pts, 3rd #88r Tommy Robb 8 pts, 4th #79h Cory Horner 7 pts, 5th #39 Shane Stickle 6 pts

The Midas of Orangeville Midget Series:

The Midas of Orangeville Midgets are the only OSCAAR series to have two events under their belts after a stand alone show at Peterborough Speedway. The season has seen some great racing, some accidents, two different feature winners heading into this weekends’ event at Sunset Speedway. After his feature win at Peterborough Speedway 2 weeks ago #84 Richard Woodland now sits atop of the 2015 season standings. With plenty of racing left in 2015, fans can expect to see every driver jockey for every position to gather those valuable championship points. To pick a favorite coming into this event is next to impossible. For the past two events the #18 of Paul Draganoc has been the top qualifier but has been shut of feature victory lane so far in 2015. Defending Champion #83 Jamie Bound missed the last event after picking up the first feature of the season. If the team hopes to defend this weekend will be the time to start to dig themselves out of that points hole they now find themselves in. With an average car count of 27 over the first two races, fans can once again look forward to another full field of Midas Midgets this weekend at Sunset Speedway.

Top Five in Points: 1st #84 Richard Woodland 133pts, 2nd #48 Brian Woodland 127 pts, 3rd #18 Paul Draganoc 127 pts, 4th #42 Brian MacDonald 126 pts, 5th #5 Jody Bound 122 pts

Inside Track Hard Charger: 1st #26 Katherine Summers – #17 Mike McLaughlin 14pts, 3rd #69 Wally Wilson 10pts, 4th #48 Brian Woodland 9 pts, 5th #83 Jamie Bound 8 pts

Hot Summer Weather Produces Hot Action On Opening Weekend

Hot Summer Weather Produces Hot Action On Opening Weekend

The Velocity Weekend at Sunset Speedway played host to OSCAAR and their fans. When the final checker flag waved the fans left the track a little sun burned and with the racing fix that only OSCAAR can provide. If fans like side by side racing, battles for the leads, seeing accidents as they cheer for their favorite driver then OSCAAR gave them what they needed.
Dickies Outlaw Super Late Models presented by London Recreational Racing:
Eighteen Outlaw Super Late Model teams signed in for the opening round of the 2015 season. Early in practice three teams suffered engine problems. The issues unfortunately ended the weekend early for the #7 of Derrick Tiemersma and the #89c of Shawn Chenoweth. The #39 of Shane Gowan was able to load up the primary car and make the trip back to the shop to grab his backup car for the 53 lap Lucie Awylin Memorial feature event. Tyler Hawn was also a victim of motor issues, sidling the team for the weekend after the second heat race. The Saturday qualifying action saw Rookie of the Year Contender #29 Sean Grosman pick up his first checker flag in his first official race. Picking up the other heat wins were the #17 of Kevin Cornelius, #22 Glenn Watson and #07 Todd Campbell. The 53 lap main event lined up with the #07 of Campbell and #b10 of Kelly Balson sharing the front row. It would not take to long for things to get exciting, and a yellow flag fever took over the race. The biggest accident was midway through when the #8 of Paul Howse, #70 Mike Beyore, made contact ending Mikes race after leading laps early in the event. By lap 16 the #17 of Cornelius had made his way to the front and was able to hold off all challengers to claim victory in the Lucie Awylin Memorial. In victory lane Kevin graciously donated back the extra sponsor money to a fund in Lucie’s name that is set up to help other families that have suffered losses. Kelly Balson and his #b10 recorded his series best finish with a second place finish, and has given indication to his fellow competitors he is ready to challenge for the championship. Todd Campbell also tied his series best finish with a third place run given that team the early season boost it needs. The Outlaws are off for a week before heading to Flamoboro Speedway for round 2 of the 2015 season.

Spring Velocity at Sunset – Day 1 Recap

Spring Velocity at Sunset – Day 1 Recap

By Ashley McCubbin – On Saturday, May 16, Sunset Speedway kicked off their doubleshot Spring Velocity weekend with four different divisions in attendance. For the fans in the stands, they were treated to a mix of familiar and new faces in victory lane over the night.

In the Can-Am Midget feature, Defending Series Champion Mack DeMan would try every trick in his book, but he wasn’t able to get by as Ryan Fraser was able to hold him off to score the victory. Tyler Turnball finished third, followed by Rob Neely and Darren McLennan. The heat victories would go to Lucas Smith and Faser.

Looking to defend his championship, Jamie Bound started off his season on the right note, scoring the victory in the Hoosier Spring Velocity Midas of Orangeville OSCAAR Midget feature. Jody Bound would finish second in his Midget debut, followed by Robin McLean, Brian Woodland and Adam Carrothers. Paul Drananoc (x2), Jamie Bound (x2), Jody Bound and Brian McDonald would win the heats, while Bob Ross won the non-qualifiers race.

When the night started, it looked as though three-time and defending series champion Gary McLean would not be in attendance. However, as the drivers got set for racing, he would show-up, ready for a night of racing. The driver of the No. 8 McLean Farms Modified was flat out fast from his first laps on the track, scoring the victory in the Hoosier OSCAAR Modified in the Hoosier Spring Velocity at Sunset Speedway. Shane Stickel finished second, followed by Cory Horner, Chad Strawn and Gary Elliott. The heat victories would go to Chris Milwain, Strawn, Horner and Elliott.

As part of the Hoosier Spring Velocity Day 1 racing schedule, the Dickies OSCAAR Outlaws presented by London Recreational Racing would qualify ahead of Sunday night’s Lucie Alywin Memorial 53. The day’s heat winners would include rookie Sean Grosman, Velocity 250 winner Kevin Cornelius, Past Series Champion Glenn Watson and Todd Campbell. Unfortunately, Tyler Hawn would see his weekend come to an early end as he would grenade the motor on the eighth lap in the third heat. Also, Shane Gowan, Derrick Tiemersma and Shawn Chenoweth were in attendance, but suffered motor issues before the start of the night. Gowan is set to return on Sunday with his back-up car, but the other two drivers’ futures are unknown at this point. Racing kicks off at Sunset Speedway at 2 pm EST.

The Lucie Alywin Memorial 53 is the big event on the card, but will be joined by a 75-lap invitational for the Sauble Falls Tent and Trailer Park Limited Late Models, 50-lap invitational for the St. Onge Recreation Super Stocks, and a 35-lap invitational for the Graham Landscape Mini Stocks. There will be a pre-race on-track autograph session so be sure to come early and meet your favourite drivers.

OSCAAR’S 25th Anniversary Season Gets Underway This Weekend

OSCAAR’S 25th Anniversary Season Gets Underway This Weekend

Ontario’s premier racing teams are ready to kick the season into high gear this weekend at Sunset Speedway. The two day event will showcase all three of OSCAAR’s premier divisions with complete show on Saturday for the OSCAAR Midgets and Modifieds. The Super late models will hold their qualifying event on Saturday as they prepare for their 53 lap Lucie Alwyn Memorial Feature on Sunday.

The schedule of events can be found on the OSCAAR website at www.oscaar.ca or at www.sunsetspeedway.ca .

The Dickies OSCAAR Outlaws presented by London Recreational Racing:

The highly anticipated start to the season is just days away from the green flag. The 2015 Outlaw season will see a new champion crowned as defending champion Andrew Gresel will be focusing his season on other racing endevers. Fans will see the familiar #81 at certain Outlaw shows this summer. The list of drivers waiting to add their names to the trophy is a long one. Last years’ runner up #17 Kevin Cornelius would have to be a preseason favorite to add his name to the trophy. But fans will not want to forget to keep an eye on the #22 of Glenn Watson, with three championships under his belt he knows what it takes to get the job done. Perhaps Kelly Balson in his b10 machine with a year under his belt is ready for a championship. You also cannot over look veterans Tyler Hawn #42, Mike Beyore in the #54 and #39 Shane Gowan as they have spent the winter getting their cars ready to race. #82 of Corey Jones is still searching for his first feature win, and has to be considered a championship contender. Then you have to stop and look at returning teams #7 Derrick Tiemersma the 2007 champion, the 40p of Charlie Gallant, the #13 of Gary Passer both have tasted the thrills for victory lane. The #89c of Shawn Chenoweth has had success in every class he has raced, and would love nothing better than to pick up a feature win and cross it off his bucket list. The team of #27 Roy Passer and the #84 of JR Fitzpatrick have prepared to supreme rides and are ready to tackle the best in the series. Could it possibly be a rookie? #29 of Sean Grosman is set to make his series debut this weekend. Fellow rookies #3 Rob Gibson and #71c Ethan Cournyea are ready to turn some heads this weekend at Sunset Speedway.

Fans will not want to miss one lap of exciting Outlaw racing in 2015

The HOOSIER OSCAAR Modified Series:

During the off season, the one thing on every modified drivers mind, what do we have to do to dethrone the #8 of Gary McLean as champion. Since the inception of the series the familiar #8 of Gary McLean has picked up three consecutive championships and the team has been hard at work in the shop to ensure they are in contention for number four. The veterans of the series are hoping to have something to say about it. #36 Gary Elliott has a strong 2014 season and is ready to challenge for the wins and championship. The #88 of Ryan Dick is entering his third year of competition and after recording solid finishes throughout the past season he too is ready for feature wins. Tommy Robb #88r had a strong season and over the winter has worked on his program to elevate him to the next level. #77 Chad Strawn has celebrated in victory lane and is prepared for a championship hunt as they are ready to tackle the entire 2015 season. Brian McLean #47 would love nothing better than to be the next McLean to add his name to the championship trophy. The off season has seen a great number of rookies ready to do battle, the #09 of Dan Price, #12 David Baylch, #10 Rob Di Venanzo,#13eh Mark Saul #20 Mike Hearty, #21 Chris Milwain, #41 Duane Cinnamon, #63 John Baker JR, #79H Cory Horner and #99 AJ Emms round out the toughest, most experienced rookie list anywhere in Ontario. Returning team of #15 Brad Pearsall, #39 Shane Stickle, #19 Dean Scott, #79 of John Harper will be looking to teach these rookies a few things about modified racing. There are a few teams racing on a part time basis in 2015 and will be a threat each time they enter #2 of Matt Barton, #14 Davey Terry, #26 Terry Baker and last years’ runner up Max Beyore in the #91n.

Fans are going to be treated to the best in open wheeled action every time the Hoosier Modifieds hit the track in 2015.

The Midas of Orangeville Midget Series:

The midget series has been racing the short tracks of Ontario for over 10 years, but this coming weekend will start a new legacy with the series as part of the OSCAAR tour. The excitement for the first green flag of 2015 has been building since the announcement at the end of 2014. The past years have seen tremendous growth in the series and 2015 is no different. At this time there are 46 teams registered to do battle each and every week at the track. To ensure that all drivers have an opportunity to race for their fans, there will be two main events each night. Fans will see some very exciting heat race action as the drivers battle to ensure they are part of the A main each week. With the two feature format, one little slip could have big implications in the points race and a drivers championship hopes. With all top ten drivers from the 2014 Championship returning in 2015, everyone knows that to win they are going to have to bet the #83 of Jamie Bound. Weighing in on this championship will be a great field of 9 rookie teams ready to do battle including the #5 of Jody Bound. This championship could come down to a battle of family members. The OSCAAR Midgets have the most diverse driver roster, from young adults age 12 to adults age 68. From drivers with years of experience to rookies who will be turning their first laps in a race car this weekend. The super fast speeds, the ability to race 3 wide and the nonstop action until the checker flag will keep fans on the edge of their seats.

OSCAAR would like to thank their dedicated fans, teams and sponsors for all their support the past 25 years and look forward to bringing race fans the best in racing this season!

It is time to go racing !!!!
