OSCAAR Pro Sprint Peterborough Speedway Preview

OSCAAR Pro Sprints at Peterborough Speedway 2018

After opening the season at Sunset Speedway, the OSCAAR Pro Sprints will not get any time off as they’re back in action at Peterborough Speedway on May 26.

Daniel Hawn will lead the charge into the patch with momentum on his side, following six straight victories dating back to last year. Notably, that streak includes a win at Peterborough, which came in the Autumn Colours Classic to complete 2017.

James Stanley jumped behind the wheel of the No. 3 after his own car ran into problems, scoring a podium finish with a third at Sunset Speedway. Well not known at this time which car he will be running this weekend, he has been strong at Peterborough previously, with no finishes outside of the top-six in three starts including a pair of thirds.

If Stanley is back in his familiar ride, you can expect Ted Greenwood to be someone to watch if he brings the No. 3 out. He has won previously multiple times in OSCAAR Pro Sprint competition, and three top-fives in five Peterborough features, including a pair of runner-ups.

Sophie Horton and Ryan Battilana each impressed in their Pro Sprint debuts at Sunset Speedway, scoring a second and fourth respectively. As they get used to the cars more, they could easily challenge for feature wins moving forward.

Jayden Riddel saw his debut at Sunset Speedway not go well, as he was parked following three spins due to being a little too loose off of corner four. With some more work on the set-up, he should be fast as before each spin, he was in position for a podium finish.

Tyler Cullen saw his debut caught up short at Sunset Speedway as he received some damage after being involved in an incident with Riddel. He will hope to have a smooth weekend this time around.

Kevin Taylor was also solid in his Pro Sprint debut, scoring a solid fifth-place finish at Sunset Speedway.

Parker Bowman will be making his first Pro Sprint start at Peterborough, but he has experience there, placing fourth in last year’s OSCAAR Midget event. He hopes to build off his sixth-place finish at Sunset.

Norman Newman made his debut last year, scoring an eighth-place finish at Flamboro before finishing sixth at Peterborough. He hopes to get back to running in the top-10 after running into trouble during the qualifying heats at Sunset Speedway, which ended his night early.

The OSCAAR Pro Sprints event at Peterborough Speedway has some special flavor as they are part of track’s opening night. The event, which features free grandstand admission, will feature Bone Stocks, Mini Stocks, Super Stocks, Ontario Modified Racing Series, and Ontario Pro Challenge Series.
