Kawartha Update

Gweather imageood Afternoon Everyone, I wanted to let all race fans know about the plans for this weekend. As a result of the weather forecast for this weekends Pintys series Championship weekend, the OSCAAR portion of the show has been cancelled. This decision was made by the management of the OSCAAR and was a very difficult one to make. I want to thank the management of Kawartha Speedway for this opportunity and look forward to working with them in 2017.
For the great fans of OSCAAR thank you for your continued support and I ask each of you to please understand the difficult choices that had to be made.

OSCAAR Midgets Full Throttle Motor Speedway Preview

After a season full of action, it’s time for things to shrink down a size for the OSCAAR Midgets as they will take on the tight bull-ring shaped 1/4 mile known as Full Throttle Motor Speedway. It should be an action packed weekend as they’ll be joined there by the OSCAAR Modifieds and Pro Midgets.

After a thrilling season of action, the grid is set and the OSCAAR Midget Race for the Cup kicks off this weekend at Full Throttle Motor Speedway. While six drivers enter this weekend eligible for the championship, only five drivers will be eligible after Saturday. Therefore, the lowest finisher of the six is eliminated.

The six eligible drivers are Brian MacDonald, Wayne McKibbon, Wally Wilson, Ryan Brown, Adam Cuzzilla and Zachary Millman.

With a top-10 in each of the races this year, including seven top-fives, Brian MacDonald enters the OSCAAR Race for the Cup as the top seed. While he hasn’t reached victory lane this year, he has been close over the course of the season with five podium finishes. He was strong at Full Throttle Motor Speedway last year, posting a pair of top-10s.

Following a solid season last year, Wayne McKibbon has been solid once again with a top-10 in each of the races this season. He has been at the front each week, posting six top-five finishes, highlighted by a third place finish at Flamboro Speedway on July 9. He’ll look to carry the success forward at Full Throttle after failing to post a top-10 there last season.

Despite balancing driving two cars all season, Wally Wilson has been quick behind the wheel of his midget. He has a top-10 finish in each race this season, including three top-fives highlighted by a pair of thirds. Notably, he failed to post a top-15 finish last year at Full Throttle.

After starting the year with a pair of finishes outside of the top nine, Ryan Brown has been solid since with a top-five finish in each of the last six races. The highlight for Brown this year has to be picking up his first career feature victory at Flamboro Speedway mid-season. Notably, he picked up a 10th place finish last fall at Full Throttle.

Alex Cuzzilla may have started the year off a little slow, but nothing has been able to hold him back lately. In his last four starts, he has posted a top-six finish. He made highlights in the series’ most recent race at Flamboro Speedway, scoring his first career victory.

Following just one top-10 in the first three races, Zach Millman has been solid ever since with four straight top-seven finishes.

Beyond the six drivers in championship contention, there is a field of others looking for glory this weekend.

James Stanley has been strong this season, picking up a pair of victories and five top-five finishes. He has been strong at Full Throttle in the past with a pair of top-10s last year.

Russ Couture may have started off a little rough with a quick roll-over in his debut at Flamboro, but he has posted a five top-10 finishes despite that, including a season-best of sixth at Grand Bend. He’ll look to continue improving with possibly his first top-five this weekend.

Shawn Stanley enters this weekend with momentum after four top-10 finishes. He was solid last year at Full Throttle, finishing seventh and ninth in the pair of races.

Bill Heatherton didn’t have the 2016 debut he had hoped for at Peterborough with a 12th place finish. While he hasn’t attended FTMS with OSCAAR to date, he knows how to run in the top-10 with the midgets as he finished eighth last year at Peterborough’s Autumn Colours Classic an finished fifth at Flamboro last month.

Darryl Anthony made his first start of the year at Peterborough, running into issues. However, he rebounded to post a sixth place finish at Flamboro in June. He hopes to score his second top-10 finish this weekend.

Craig Deacon has run two races thus far this year, posting a pair of solid finishes with an eighth and a seventh. He hopes to break into the top-five this weekend.

Unfortunately, Paul Derno didn’t have the 2016 debut he hoped for at Flamboro Speedway with mechanical issues. He’ll hope to have those sorted out this weekend. Meanwhile, Trevor Spoul was solid in his debut this year, posting a solid eighth place finish.

Owen Elliott made his first start of the year a couple weeks ago at Peterborough, picking up the victory. He’ll hope to have another strong run this weekend.

Monty Farrell made his 2016 debut at Flamboro Speedway last month, posting a solid ninth place finish. He’ll be hoping for a strong run this weekend.
