As the names are released for whom will be back with OSCAAR in 2018, it’s no surprise to see Luke Gignac and ADAMS Motorsports on the list. The pair will be vying for their second straight title after winning the 2017 OSCAAR Modified Championship.

“We plan on running the whole season again and hope to continue making the team and car stronger,” Gignac said. “We are looking forward to racing at Jukasa (Motor Speedway) and also looking forward to seeing the extra teams that are coming out to the MOD class. More competitors will only make this class stronger!”

This past season, Gignac scored two feature wins, eight top-fives, and 10 top-10s, along with six heat victories, en route to winning the OSCAAR Championship. It builds on the success for the team the past couple of years, after a runner-up in 2016.

“It really was a great season,” he said. “As a team, we really do get along well. We try to just race every week and let the points fall where they fall.”

The crown just adds to his statistics in OSCAAR competition, as his rookie season in 2016 saw him place second in points to Gary McLean with five feature top-fives. Comparing the years together, Gignac said the biggest difference from last year to this was “plain and simple – time,” from experiencing in the seat, to the team growing closer together.

Now hoping to build upon the success once again in 2018, we know he’ll be one of the contenders – but it won’t be easy with the list of drivers vying to snag the crown away.

Gignac will kick off the year by showcasing his No. 99 Modified in OSCAAR’s booth at the Motorama Custom Car and Motorsports Expo.

Taking place at the International Centre from March 8 through the 10th, the event brings together some of the best looking cars and racecars for fans to look at, along with industry experts available for autographs and stage discussions.

As part of the show, Gignac will one of the five OSCAAR Champions recognized on stage on Saturday, March 9 as part of the Short Track Night of Champions.
