OSCAAR Midget Grand Bend Speedway Preview

OSCAAR Midget Series Grand Bend Speedway 2017

After seeing a first-time winner at Peterborough Speedway, the OSCAAR Midgets are set for their second date on the 2017 schedule.

Wally Wilson had a stellar year last season, placing in the top-five in points. He will hope to score another solid finish after placing seventh last June at Grand Bend.

James Stanley will be making his 2017 debut, hoping to contend for the win after scoring a pair of feature victories last year. Notably, he didn’t have the best success at Grand Bend with an 11th-place finish.

Brian MacDonald will be possibly making his 2017 debut as he looks to top last year’s stellar campaign which saw him post eight top-five finishes, including a podium at Grand Bend Speedway.

Randy Hiusser is bound for his first midget start since 2015, when he posted a season-best finish of seventh at Sunset Speedway.

There’s also a possibility of seeing Ryan Brown, Nigel Buttivant, Monty Farrell and Parker Bowman as they were each in attendance at Peterborough Speedway for the season-opener. Notably, Buttivant picked up the victory ahead of Brown. Out of those drivers, Brown was the only driver to run Grand Bend last year, with a runner-up finish to Richard Woodland.

After an exciting show to kick-off the season at Peterborough Speedway, the OSCAAR Pro Midgets are ready for their second event of 2017 at Grand Bend Speedway. With a full field expected, it’s bound to be another great weekend of competition.

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.

Jordan Hanna hopes to make it two in a row this weekend after picking up the victory at Peterborough Speedway.

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.

His daughter Katherine will also be one t o 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.

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

Another driver looking for a solid run will be James Stanley, who posted a sixth-place finish in the season opener.

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. He didn’t have a whole ton of luck at Grand Bend last year, either, finishing fifth.

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.

Inaugural OSCAAR Pro Midget Series Champion Ted Greenwood will make his first start of the year this weekend. He was successful at Grand Bend last year, scoring one of his series-leading three feature victories there.

Brian MacDonald will be hoping to post a podium result this weekend after a third and an eighth in his pair of series starts last season. MacDonald knows how to get it done in a midget, as noted by his nine top-10’s in OSCAAR Midget competition last season.

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.

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.

Wally Wilson will be making his 2017 Pro Midget debut this weekend, hoping to build upon last year’s seven top-10’s, including a fourth-place finish at Grand Bend.

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.”

You can also add Steve Belfry, Paul Gee and JT Ackworth to the list of drivers expected to be in attendance, who will make their series debuts.

Taking the lead early in the event, Glenn Watson did not look back as he scored his second OSCAAR Outlaw Super Late Model feature victory of 2017 at Kawartha Speedway.

Glenn Watson won the opening heat ahead of Kelly Balson, John Cadman, Charlie Gallant and Gary Passer.

Ryan Kimball won the second heat ahead of Derrick Tiemersma, Tyler Hawn, and Ian Bourque.

Tyler Hawn won the third heat ahead of Balson, Gallant, Bourque and Passer.

Derrick Tiemersma won the fourth heat ahead of Watson, Cadman, and Kimball.

Come feature time, it’d be Kelly Balson starting pole ahead of Derrick Tiemersma, Tyler Hawn, Glenn Watson, Ryan Kimball, John Cadman, Ian Bourque, Gary Passer and Charlie Gallant.

Off the drop of the green flag, it’d be Tiemersma taking the lead early. However, his lead did not last long with Watson nagging it on Lap 4, and beginning to check out immediately on the field. Behind them, Cadman began to work his way up carefully, getting by Tiemersma for the second spot just before halfway.

For the most part, the field would string out single file, but there was still action with a heated battle for sixth between Hawn and Kimball through the middle portion of the 40-lap feature.

Glenn Watson picked up the victory ahead of John Cadman, Derrick Tiemersma, Kelly Balson and Charlie Gallant. Ryan Kimball finished sixth, followed by Tyler Hawn, Ian Bourque and Gary Passer.

Cory Horner Scores First Career OSCAAR Modified Victory at Kawartha

OSCAAR Modified Top 3 at Kawartha Speedway 2017

After coming close on multiple occasions, Cory Horner finally broke through as he scored his first career OSCAAR Modified victory on Friday night at Kawartha Speedway.

Luke Gignac won the first heat ahead of John Harper, Max Beyore, Chris Milwain, Cory Horner, David Balych, Mike Hearty and Dan Price.

The second heat featured a quick caution as Dave Hodgkinson spun on Lap 8 in turns three and four. Ale Reinhart picked up the win ahead of AJ Emms, Gary Elliott, Connor James, Tim Tolton, Adam Hagen and Wally Wilson.

Cory Horner won heat three ahead of Beyore, Emms, Milwain, Tolton and Wilson.

Mike Hearty won the fourth heat ahead of Reinhart, Price, Balych, Gignac, James and Hagen.
Come feature time, it was Reinhart starting pole ahead of Harper, Horner, Gignac, Beyore, Emms, Milwain, Hearty, Price, James, Baylch, Tolton, Hagen, Elliott, Hodgkinson and Wilson. Unfortunately, Hodgkinson continued to experience problems as he’d pull off on Lap 1 into the infield.

At the front of the field, Harper grabbed the early advantage, with Horner in toe. Horner continued to look for a way by, but was unsuccessful in all of his attempts, with Beyore and Gignac right on their tails. Ultimately, Harper’s night wouldn’t play out as he wanted as while leading around the halfway point, the engine on the No. 79 Modified would expire, resulting in him going around in turn one and laying a significant amount of fluid down.

As a result, Horner inherited the lead ahead of Beyore, Gignac, Milwain, Emms, Hearty, Balych, Reinhart and Price.

Beyore got a good restart, grabbing the initial advantage ahead of the field with the lead. He looked to be bound for a win in his modified return, until three laps to go when Horner was able to get underneath him, completing the pass to take the lead.

Cory Horner led the rest of the way en route to victory ahead of Max Beyore, Chris Milwain, Luke Gignac, and AJ Emms. Mike Hearty finished sixth, followed by David Balych, Dale Reinhart, Dan Price, and Gary Elliott. Connor James finished 11th, followed by Tim Tolton, Adam Hagen, Wally Wilson, John Harper and Dave Hodgkinson.
