Cory Horner Ready to Tackle the 2015 OSCAAR Modified Season

Race fans of eastern Ontario will recognise the last name of Horner, as the family has been competing on the short tracks of Ontario since the early 80’s. However in 2015 is will be young Cory Horner who will be looking to make his mark in OSCAAR racing.
Late in the 2014 race season Cory purchased a modified and took part in both the Velocity and Autumn Colours classic recording a 15th and 7th place finish in the feature events. Cory is hoping those two events will give him a slight advantage in the Rookie battle, but also knows he is going to have to bring his “A” game each and every week.
Like many young racers in Ontario Cory began his racing career in the 4 cylinder division and enjoyed success there picking up 3 feature wins over an 8 year period. The 2013 season saw the team make the big jump into the late model division at Peterborough Speedway where he had instant success by winning the Mid Summer Championship and Rookie of The Year. When the 2014 season rolled around Cory was on the side lines until purchasing his modified.
Cory always had the dream of joining OSCAAR, but knew the super late model class was just not feasible for him. So he turned his attention to the modifieds. Like any racer Cory likes to go fast so after timing some cars he realised that the mods are in fact pretty fast cars. The appeal of the economical 602 crate motor being successful in the class was also a selling point when deciding to make the move.
Coming into the 2015 season Cory doesn’t really think he holds any advantage over any of his fellow competitors. Cory does have experience at many of the different tracks but he knows it is going to take time to adjust to no fenders on the car. His main goal is simple “ I just want to make every event this season and finish the best that I can”
When the final checker flag waves at the end of the 2015 and Cory and his team looks back on the season, they have a couple of things on their wish list 1) Would love to add another Rookie of The Year award to his resume 2) and finish every lap and every race. With the knowledge and experience that Cory and his team has, fans should be including him their list of preseason favorites for Rookie of The Year.
When it comes to Cory’s racing in the future he is quick to admit that while he loves racing the modified and it has all of his attention for 2015, the desire to get behind the wheel of an Outlaw Super Late Model is still there.
OSCAAR welcomes Cory and his team to the Modified Series and wish them the best of luck for the 2015 season.

2015 Woolner Memorial At Full Throttle Motor Speedway

OSCAAR and The Woolner Family are very excited to announce the premier OSCAAR Modified event will be returning to Full Throttle Motor Speedway in 2015. The past three years has seen this event grow to the largest paying modified event in Ontario and the 2015 event is going to be even bigger with a new twist.
OSCAAR, Gord Bennett, owner of Full Throttle Speedway and Julia Woolner Stewart have sat down and came up with an idea that will take this event to the next level for fans and drivers. The OSCAAR Modifieds are scheduled to race on the high banked ¼ mile oval on June 13th and September 12th in fifty lap events. So now the twist for 2015, the June 13th is going to be The Rick Woolner Memorial Part 1 and the September 12th will be Part 2, with the driver with the best overall finish from both events being crowned the 2015 Rick Woolner Memorial Champion.
Full Throttle Motor Speedway has a long history with the modified division and Rick raced and recorded many wins and championships there, so it only fitting to unveil this new format at this years’ event.
Over the past couple of years this event has attracted many dedicated lap sponsors and that tradition will continue for both events in 2015. This year to sponsor a feature lap at either event will be $75.00. As a thank you for the support Full Throttle Motor Speedway will offer each lap sponsor with 2 complimentary main grandstand passes for either event.
The 2015 OSCAAR Modified season is shaping up to be the biggest yet. With all the top teams returning to competition and 16 rookie teams registered OSCAAR race fans will want to ensure to have these two dates circled on their calendar as must see events.
OSCAAR would like to remind all race fans that Full Throttle Motor Speedway is set to start the 2015 racing season on March 21st with the running of the Sprint into Spring 200 enduro race. Fans can probably be assured a couple of modified drivers will be there trying for the first place prize of the 360 Sprint Car. Please visit www.fullthrottlemotorspeedway.com for more details of this event and their 2015 race season.
For people wishing to sponsor a lap for the memorial race please email Dave at oscaargainforth@gmail.com, or Julia at onlyme1959@hotmail.com .

James Rodgers Looking to Carry Momentum into 2015 Season


When the final checker flag waved ending the 2014 Hurricane Midget season it was the #77 of James Rodgers celebrating the feature win at Autumn Colours. The win secured James to a third place finish in the championship standings, and giving the team the boost it needed heading in to 2015. James and his team would love nothing more than to become the first ever OSCAAR Midget Series Champion.
James is no stranger to racing as his career began in 2003 in the 4 cylinder division as Sunset Speedway before moving up to the Thunder car division. James first arrived on the midget series in 2012 and has been a force to deal with ever since. The familiar “chrome” #77 can always be found battling for the win each week.
When it became time for a change James looked around at various divisions and decided on the midget class based on the high speed of the cars and the cost to run a competitive team. Fans might not know but the midgets turn some of the fastest lap times of any cars in Ontario.
As with any series or class, each and every year teams continue to improve of their cars. Since first joining the series, where there were maybe 5 cars that can win on any given night there are now 15-20 that you have to beat. James loves the competition and with teams stepping up their programs each year the series is going to continue to get stronger.
Like any driver James has a wish list and it is pretty simple” I like to see different teams win all the time, seeing the same driver each week win is not good for the series” But James also knows that winning takes hard work and determination and that are two attributes that he brings to the track each week.
When the talks began of the midgets becoming OSCAAR sanctioned James was very excited. Fans know all about OSCAAR and the great racing they bring to the track each week with the Super Lates and the Mods. So adding the midgets to the mix, will bring fans an exciting night of racing with three distinct classes that you cannot see anywhere else but at an OSCAAR event.
James is already looking towards his future with OSCAAR and says a OSCAAR Mod is definitely in his future in the next few years. But for 2015 his focus is the OSCAAR Midget Championship.
OSCAAR would like to with James and his whole #77 team the best of luck for the 2015 season.

AJ Emms & Adams Motorsports Together for 2015 OSCAAR Modified Season

When Allen Adams went looking for a new driver for his #99 OSCAAR Modified, he had his eyes set on an experienced driver, and that is what he found. The team will be entering their second year of competition with the series with yet another top rookie driver, AJ Emms.

Although on paper AJ is a rookie with the series, his experience will show that he will be a force each and every week. Among his many titles is 5 time GO Karting Champion at the Simcoe, Toronto, Kawartha – Durham Kart Clubs. For three years AJ was the runner up in the Hurricane Midget series while racking up over 10 feature wins. Most recently AJ has been enjoying success in the Pro 4 Modified where last season saw the team win an amazing 7 features out of 12 and the 2014 Championship.

AJ is very grateful for the opportunity to work with Adams Motorsports and to be a part of OSCAAR tour. For many years AJ has watched the series grow and now to have the opportunity to travel with the series to all the different tracks, it was really a no brainer at jumping at this opportunity.aj_emms_pro4

The team has been busy in the shop since the end of the 2014 season making changes to the car. Team owner Allen Adams is keeping things pretty close chested about the changes but he did say they have an all new body, a brand new built motor ready to go in the #99. With a smile Allen also said they have a couple of other surprises as well. AJ knows working with a new team, getting use to a new car and adapting to the changes will be a challenge but he has confidence in his crew and himself. AJ knows he will be competing with the best that there is in modified racing and will have to rely on all his past experience each week. AJ is very confident that their team will be up for the challenge starting at opening day at Sunset Speedway.

The team has one main goal heading into the season, complete every lap, record some top finishes and eliminate the DNF’s. After that the points will take care of themselves, and AJ would love nothing better than to bring the Rookie of The Year title to Adams Motorsports.

aj_emms_pro4_2When asked about his future in racing, AJ is quick to point out that he simply does not think that far ahead. Right now his main focus is on the #99 modified and working with his new team. On some off weekends you will still most likely find AJ racing either in his limited late model, or his Outlaw Modified.

One thing becomes very obvious this young man is very dedicated to his team and his sport and that should bring the success they deserve. Fans can also follow the team on facebook at Adams Motorsports for all the latest news from the team.

OSCAAR would like to with AJ and his team to the series and the best of luck in the 2015 season.
