Who to watch for: Modifieds,Every modified driver has one thing on their list of racing goals, The Rick Woolner Memorial win. The 2014 version of this event will be the most competitive in the races history. #8 Gary McLean has only one goal each year and it is this win. The current point leader has been on a tear lately picking up podium finish each event. The rookies have all played notice this year and they could easily step in and steal the win away. The #7 and #47 of Brent and Brian McLean would love to take this win home. Series favorites #14 Davey Terry, #2 Matt Barton and #39 Shane Stickle all look to make their first series win, The Woolner Memorial. Fans will also be able to choose the best appearing modified award prior to the start of the feature.
Super Late Models: It has been almost a month since the last super late model event. The hottest driver in the series prior to the break was #17 Kevin Cornelius, with feature win at Barrie and the Biederman Memorial win at Sunset Speedway. Home track favorite #81 Andrew Gresel got his first series win a year ago at Sauble Speedway and will be looking to regain that glory this weekend. #10 Jesse Kennedy made his first ever OSCAAR start at Sauble Speedway, and the team is coming off a big late model win last week at Delaware Speedway. That momentum might help carry the #10 to his second OSCAAR feature win. The rookies continue to impress each week and it won’t be long till one of them is celebrating in victory lane. #07 Todd Campbell recorded his best feature finish as Sauble Speedway, he will be looking to keep the record alive.

Shawn Chenoweth to Return to OSCAAR Super Late Model Competition

CAMBRIDGE, ON- After a near two-year absence, Pro Late Model standout Shawn Chenoweth will return to the OSCAAR Super Late Model Tour for a limited schedule in 2014.

“They just can’t keep us out. We’re coming back”, smiles Chenoweth, “our Pro Late Model program is as good as it’s ever been, and we feel right now is the perfect time to take on a new challenge”

Chenoweth will continue to field a Pro Late Model and Thunder Car through the remaining rounds of the well-received APC Six Pack Series at Delaware Speedway and Flamboro Speedway.

“Our whole team loves the APC Six Pack Series concept, and we wanted to make sure we supported it completely”, explains Chenoweth. “We’ve had a couple of awesome runs in the first two rounds, and we’re fortunate enough to be leading the points with four races left. It would be silly to turn our back on it”

“We still have a full schedule planned for the Thunder Car to close out 2014”, continues Chenoweth. “That car works awesome at Flamboro”

The second-generation competitor has acquired a Jeff Hanley-built chassis, from former OSCAAR part-timer Paul Law, which he intends to debut later this season.

“When we were mulling over the decision to get back into OSCAAR, we knew we wanted a Jeff Hanley chassis”, says Chenoweth. “As far as craftsmanship goes, you can’t beat one. They’re works of art. Beautiful cars. Paul [Law] had one available, and we jumped at the opportunity”

The reigning Flamboro Pro Late Model titlist will return to the tour with full support from his sponsor and confidante Mike Schmidt.

“Shawn can’t stop talking about this Super Late Model endeavor. I haven’t seen him this excited in a long time”, says Schmidt, the leader of London Recreational Racing. “When Shawn sets his mind to something, he has a certain energy to him. It’s infectious”

“The OSCAAR tour is one of the most competitive divisions in the province right now”, continues Schmidt, “and I’m as excited as Shawn is to see where he stacks up against the current crop of talent”

Chenoweth’s newly acquired ride is in the process of receiving a number of minor upgrades, and is slated for an August debut, before embarking on a full tour schedule in 2015.

Shawn Chenoweth’s re-entry into the OSCAAR Super Late Model Tour will be made possible thanks to support from London Recreational, Bennett GM, KR Communications, Midas of Orangeville, Castrol Edge, Transaxle Truck Parts, Hitman Hotrods, Wilson Ponds, Graybar, McColl Racing Enterprises, Innerkip Plumbing and Heating, ProWraps and Automotive Truck & Tire.

Mother Nature Wins Out Over Summer Rush II At Kawartha Speedway

The management of Summer Rush would like to announce the postponement of tomorrows event at Kawartha Speedway. The inclement weather that is being predicted is just to much to overcome,and we don’t wish to see fans or racers face any additional costs.
The Summer Rush Group is pleased to announce that they have secured a makeup date of Sunday August 10th to host this event.
Fans will be able to see the OSCAAR Super Late Models, Hanover Holiday Modifieds, round 2 of the Mini Stock Nationals, The Dirt Pro Late Models from Brighton Speedway, the 4Funs…. and maybe more!
Everyone from OSCAAR / Summer Rush Group would like to thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing everyone on August 10th for a great day of racing at Kawartha Speedway.

Summer Rush 2 Set To Invade Kawartha Speedway This Weekend

 

summer rushFRASERVILLE, ON- Final preparations are ongoing for the return of Summer Rush to Kawartha Speedway on July 13th. A full card of racing – including the OSCAAR Super Late Model & Modified Tours, Dirt Late Models and Round 2 of the heralded Mini Stock Nationals – will kick off at 2:30pm.

“I think we’ve all been counting down the days to this event since we left Kawartha on June 1st”, explained OSCAAR President Dave Gainforth.

“This Kawartha event really comes at a pivotal moment in our season – for both of our tours – there’s a lot on the line this weekend”

In Super Late Model action, point leader Andrew Gresel will hope to earn his second straight Kawartha victory, and tighten his grip on the points standings entering the second half of the season.

“We’ve found something that works at Kawartha, I absolutely love racing there”, said Gresel when reached for comment. “We didn’t have the finish we were hoping for at Sunset a couple weeks ago, so Kawartha gives us the perfect opportunity to get our momentum back on track”

The OSCAAR Modifieds will join the Super Late Models on the card, as point leader Gary McLean will hope to hold off hard charging freshman Max Beyore. McLean has had success at Kawartha in the past, though Beyore has the edge in experience at the Fraserville, ON oval, having raced in the speedway’s Pro Late Model division prior to migrating to Modified competition.

Summer Rush 2 will also play host to the final round of the $500-to-win ‘Mini Stock Nationals’, in an event that is likely to draw Four Cylinder competitors from across Ontario. Sunset Speedway regular Andy Kamrath has confirmed he will be in attendance, with plans of defending the ‘Nationals’ title he earned on June 1st.

“I think this team surprised ourselves even more than we did everyone else”, remarked Kamrath when asked about his June 1st victory. “We came into the first round of the ‘Nationals’ completely blind. We didn’t really know if we were going to have enough power to keep up with some of the Kawartha regulars, but it all worked out in our favour. Now that we know what we need to run at the front, hopefully we can take down back-to-back ‘Nationals’ wins”

Gates open at 11:30 am for this Sunday’s event, with the green flag flying at 2:30pm. Additional details can be found at www.OSCAAR.ca.
