Gary McLean Picks Up The Hanover Holidays Modified Series Feature Win

Location: Sunset Speedway, Lefroy Ontario May 18, 2014
What Won the race: #14 Davey Terry took advantage of his pole position in the thirty lap feature event to pace the field for the first ten laps. The team looked poised to finally claim their first feature win but defending champion and current point leader #8 Gary McLean had other place. A restart on lap eleven would be what McLean was searching for and was able to take the lead and pace the field for the final twenty laps of the feature event. Rookie driver and current second place sitter in the championship points #91n Max Beyore continued to put the pressure on McLean but had to settle for a second place finish. #7 Brent McLean returned to action this weekend after missing the past couple of races. The teams hard work was rewarded with a solid third place finish at the end of the feature. Gary Elliott scored another strong finish with a fourth place. In the closing laps the best race on the track was between #67w Tommy Walters and #61 of Dustin Jackson, with Jackson pulling off the pass on the hall of fame driver for a fifth place finish.
Bad Luck of the Event: #79 of John Harper suffered mechanical issues forcing the team to miss the feature event. After making repairs from the hard crash at Peterborough Speedway, the #47 of Brian McLean returned to action but was sidelined early in the feature event.

Dwayne Baker Wins Inaugural Bruce Gowland Memorial


Location: Sunset Speedway, Lefroy Ontario August 23, 2014
What won the race: A caution on lap forty of the fifty lap event would see race long leader #81 Andrew Gressel line up beside #48 Dwayne Baker. After a couple of false starts as each driver was looking for the slightest advantage, the two raced side by side for the next five laps. Baker was able to pull the pass off and went on to lead the final five laps to win the first annual Bruce Gowland Memorial event. Gressel held on to second adding to his points lead over #17 Kevin Cornelius who rounded out the podium. Jeff Hanley and Jesse Kennedy rounded out the top five in the feature event.
Bad Luck of the event: #39 Shane Gowan never got the chance to compete for the win in the feature event as mechanical issues sidelined the team early. #82 Corey Jones made slight contact with the #70 of Hanley coming out of turn four and stacked up the field. The #82 suffered heavy front end damage and was done for the night. Coming into this event Rob Poole and Glenn Watson were tied for fourth in the points, both teams suffered through a feature event that would see both involved in a couple of incidents.
Rookie Battle: Three Rookie of the Year candidates were in attendance this weekend at Sunset Speedway. Dave Doucette took advantage of his outside pole starting spot in the feature to record a seventh place finish in the feature and the honours of the top rookie of the race. Kelly Balson scored a ninth place finish and Corey Jones was twentieth after retiring with damage.

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.
