Who to watch for: Modifieds: The Hanover Holiday Modified teams will be entering their 5th week in a row of competition this weekend at Sunset Speedway. The busy summer season has tested the teams and equipment every week as they tour across Ontario. Gary McLean and Max Beyore have both tasted feature victory lane and continue to have a close points battle for the championship with only 13 points separating the two with three events remaining in 2014. Gary Elliott has shown there is a lot of racing left in him as he continues to have strong podium runs that find him sitting 3rd in the points. The #14 of Davey Terry continues to rebound from the bad luck at Capital City and has fought his way back into 4th in the points. Rookie contender Tommy Robb has not given up as he has faced some tough racing luck as of late. There are several teams still looking for their first series and first feature win of 2014 and with the action always exciting at Sunset Speedway fans will not want to miss one lap of racing action this weekend.
Super Late Models: When the series last visited Sunset Speedway it was the #17 of Kevin Cornelius enjoying victory lane and taking possession of the Don Biederman Memorial Trophy for a year. In the past couple of races the team has faced a little adversity and will be looking to shake that bad luck this weekend and become the Bruce Gowland Memorial Winner. Andrew Gressel continues his strong and steady season and currently holds a 37 point lead in the championship with 4 events remaining. The team is coming off back to back wins at Peterborough and Kawartha and will be hoping to keep that streak alive this weekend. Jesse Kennedy is having a strong season to celebrate his 30 years in racing and currently find himself 3rd in the season championship. Glenn Watson looked poised to return to victory lane at Kawartha but a late race caution took that win away. Look for the 22 team to be strong this weekend. #45 Rob Poole considers Sunset Speedway home and would love nothing better than to pick up his first feature win this weekend. The impressive field of rookies will be looking to show the veterans that they are ready to race for the checkers. With Mike Beyore, Jeff Hanley, Charlie Gallant, Todd Campbell, Dave Taylor all expected to be in attendance. The outlaws are ready to race hard in the memory of their fellow racer Bruce Gowland
About Bruce Gowland: Bruce can be described in one simple word “Racer”. Bruce was a dedicated member of OSCAAR since the inception of the series. The famous #18 would usually be the last car to arrive at the track but the first thing you would see is the big smile on his face as he drove his tow rig into the pits. Bruce was known at all the short tracks throughout Ontario all the way to Florida as he would spend his winters racing down south. Bruce also became known as the man to beat on the Truck and Tractor pull circuit in the summer. When he rolled in people knew he was the man they were going to have to beat to win. Last year Bruce lost his fight with cancer and has been sadly missed by everyone in the racing world. Speaking on behalf of all OSCAAR competitors, car owners, and crew, OSCAAR is very proud to be able to race tonight in his memory, share some laughs and smiles after, just the way Bruce would have wanted it to be.

Location: Delaware Speedway August 15, 2014
What won the race: Sixteen OSCAAR Hanover Holiday Modifieds signed in to race at Delaware Speedway. With the time trials and heat races setting the starting field #8 Gary McLean and #82 Justin DeMelo would lead the field to green for 25 laps of feature action. McLean and Demelo put on a fierce battle at the front until contact coming out of four almost ended the night for both drivers. McLean was able to continue but the #82 of DeMelo was done for the night. This handed the lead to #3 Jamie Cox who won last year’s event. A great battle for second took place between #91n of Beyore and #14 of Terry as they battled each other for the next seventeen laps, with Beyore taking second over Terry when the checker flag waved. Jamie Cox’s victory lane celebration came to an end in tech lane, as a motor infraction was found and the team was disqualified.
Drivers on the Move: #1 Barry Newman made his first start of the 2014 season on Friday night. After starting the feature event in 15th place Barry raced his way to the 4th place finish at the end of the race. #2 Matt Barton suffered front end suspension damage in the heat race and used every minute of the twenty minute intermission to be ready for the feature event. Hard worked paid off as the team moved up six positions in the feature event.
