oscaarpromidget_flamboro-1

While the OSCAAR Pro Midgets got rained out last week, they didn’t let that dampen their spirits. It just allowed the teams to work even harder so they could make sure to be ready to put on a thriller this weekend at Flamboro Speedway.

Everybody will be gunning for Jordan Hanna this weekend certainly, as he looks to make it two in a row after picking up the victory at Peterborough Speedway. He knows his way around Flamboro as it was the sight of his inaugural OSCAAR win in 2016.

Cassidy March hopes his speed shines through this weekend as he was quick at Peterborough, but an early crash resulted in a seventh-place finish. In three previous starts at Flamboro, he has posted a pair of sevenths and a third.

Inaugural OSCAAR Pro Midget Series Champion Ted Greenwood will make his first start of the year this weekend. He was successful at Flamboro last year, picking up the victory in July to go with a runner-up in June.

Another driver looking for a solid run will be James Stanley, who posted a sixth-place finish in the season opener. He made his OSCAAR Pro Midget debut last October at Flamboro with an eighth-place finish.

Rob Summers will be looking for another podium after scoring a third-place finish at Peterborough. It backed up his success from last year, when he posted a pair of fourths at Flamboro.

His daughter Katherine will also be one to watch, as she looks to improve upon her eighth-place finish in the season opener. Last year, she proved she was fast with three top-fives, including a pair of fifths at Flamboro.

Adrian Kemps has only made three starts to date, but they’ve all been stellar with no finishes outside of the top-four, including a victory in last year’s Autumn Colours Classic at Peterborough. He posted a third-place finish in the 2016 season finale at Flamboro.

Shawn Paul is focused on scoring his second career Pro Midget victory in his 2017 debut, following a win last year at Flamboro in June.

Owen Elliott caught everyone’s attention late in the OSCAAR Midget season with two wins and a runner-up in the last three events. He will hope to carry the momentum over to the Pro Midget division this weekend.

Gary Triska will be looking for a top-10 in 2017 debut, after posting a sixth and 10th in his pair of series starts last season.

Mckenzie Hamilton will begin her chase of Rookie of the Year honors after racing a 440 suspended outlaw midget on dirt at Wonderland Speedway in 2014. She says, “It will be fun and very interesting for me joining a new class and being able to race against (the) many good drivers in it.”

Daniel Hawn will make his third series start this weekend, hoping to finish one spot better after a second in the season opener at Peterborough. Hawn has been impressive in both series starts so far, with a pair of heat victories and two runner-ups.

Brody Rickwood caught everyone‘s attention in his OSCAAR Pro Midget debut at Peterborough, scoring a fifth-place finish.

You can also add Steve Belfry and JT Ackworth to the list of drivers expected to be in attendance, as they will be making their series debut. There’s also a possibility to see three woman on track as Sophie Horton may be making her debut this weekend, but if not in the next couple of weeks.

Along with the OSCAAR Hot Rods at Flamboro Speedway this Saturday will be the OSCAAR Modifieds, OSCAAR Super Late Models, OSCAAR Hot Rods, and OSCAAR Midgets. They will join Flamboro’s regular Pure Stocks and Pro 4 Modifieds, with racing starting at 6pm sharp. Please note the pit gate opens at 3pm.

After a successful inaugural event for the OSCAAR Hot Rods at Kawartha Speedway, the second round is set for Flamboro Speedway this weekend.

Tyler Hawn grabbed the first checkered flag at Kawartha Speedway behind the wheel of his 1966 Chevrolet Belmont, and will look to go back-to-back.

“The most exciting thing I see about the Hot Rod Series is that it’s bringing back the roots of racing,” said Tyler Hawn. “There are cars are how the Super Lates were back in the early days of stock car racing. Building this car really brought out all of the old ways from my dad. He’s been so excited with the process.”

Adam Misener will certainly be looking to spoil the Hawn Motorsports party with his 1964 Impala. Misener had a great run in the class debut, posting a runner-up finish.

After experiencing fuel pick-up issues at Kawartha, Derek Henderson hopes to put the 1957 Chevrolet in victory lane for car owner Dan Price. Henderson has been successful in the past, finishing runner-up in the Mosport Street Stock points in 1995, followed by a championship a year later.

Jerry Luckhardt made his racing debut at Kawartha Speedway, fighting some adversity through the heats prior to a fifth-place finish in the feature.

After a thrilling event at Kawartha Speedway with a first-time winner, the OSCAAR Modifieds are ready to get back on-track with their third event of the year, and second of 2017 at Flamboro Speedway.

After an impressive sophomore campaign last year, A.J. Emms has come out of the gate strong with back-to-back top-five finishes. The Hamilton, Ontario track seems to fit his driving style, with three runner-ups over the past two seasons.

John Harper put together a great 2016, and came out of the gate strong at Flamboro in May with a podium result. However, Kawartha Speedway did not as planned with a blown motor while leading ending his race early. Fortunately, Flamboro is the perfect opportunity for a turnaround as he won there last year in August.

2016 Rookie of the Year Luke Gignac has kicked off 2017 strong with a pair of top-five finishes, including a fifth at Flamboro in May. He came close to winning at Flamboro previously, running up front last October till a mechanical issue.

Gary Elliott has posted a pair of top-10’s to start off this year, giving him 10 top-10’s in his last 13 series events. He knows how to get it done at Flamboro, as evidenced by being the sight of his first career OSCAAR Modified feature victory last season.

While Dan Price drove his modified to a ninth-place finish at Kawartha Speedway, he will be handing over the driving duties to Super Late Model competitor Kelly Balson. The last time Balson drove the No. 09 Modified resulted in a sixth-place finish at Delaware Speedway.

David Balych will continue his search towards his first career series victory, following a pair of top-10’s to start off 2017 for four straight top-10’s dating back to last season. He has ran well at Flamboro in the past, posting a third-place finish last year.

Dale Reinhart continues to put together solid performances, with only one finish outside of the top-10 in his entire OSCAAR career to date. Earlier this year at Flamboro, he posted a seventh-place finish.

Fresh off of his first career victory at Kawartha Speedway, Cory Horner will be looking to put himself in contention for another this weekend with five top-fives in his last six Flamboro starts, including a runner-up.

After finishing just outside of the top-10 at Kawartha Speedway, Tim Tolton will look to put himself back up front after posting a ninth in May at Flamboro.

David Hodgkinson will look to shed the mechanical issues that have plagued his team in his first two OSCAAR starts in hopes of a top-10 this weekend.

Another driver looking to shed the bad luck is Jase Cornell, who has yet to run a feature this year due to mechanical issues in practice and qualifying.

Midget graduate Wally Wilson will look to continue progressing forward following a 12th-place finish at Flamboro in May in hopes of his first career top-10.

Chris Milwain started off the year with a bang, scoring the victory in the season opener at Flamboro Speedway in May. He’ll look to do it once again following a third-place finish at Kawartha Speedway.

Matt Barton made his OSCAAR modified return in May, picking up an eighth-place finish in the season opener. He will look to keep the momentum rolling in getting back to the form fans are used to seeing.

The McLean racing family torch was passed to Aaron McLean this season, who will hope to score his first career top-10 following a 13th-place finish in May.

Adam Hagen is another suspect looking to break into the top-10 following a 13th-place finish at Kawartha Speedway earlier this month.
