Nick Clarke Scores OSCAAR Hot Rod Feature Victory at Flamboro

Making his OSCAAR Hot Rod Series debut, Nick Clarke scored his first career feature victory on Saturday night at Flamboro Speedway.

With the class still growing and cars not yet completed, there was a low car count for this weekend with only four cars signing in the back gate. While it’s disappointing after seeing numbers as high as seven for Kawartha Speedway, there is still confidence looking towards the future in what’s to come with the cars currently being built by competitors for debut either later this year or next season.

Nick Clarke had hoped to have his car out sooner this year, but was unable to do so till this weekend. The simple look caught the attention of the fans in the stands, and he led all six laps in the feature to score the victory despite fighting some fuel issues. In victory lane, he expressed enthusiasm for the series’ future, based on his team’s experience so far and who he had spoken to.

Jerry Luckhardt continues to get stronger behind the wheel, making his third career series start with a runner-up finish.

Darryl Stephenson made his series debut, driving the familiar No. 2 Belmont that Tyler Hawn had previously piloted in the past four races. Stephenson got more comfortable with each lap behind the wheel, continuing to find speed en route to a third-place finish.

Adam Misener, who picked up the victory in June, unfortunately failed to start the feature as a result of suffering a mechanical failure in practice. Hopefully his team can make the necessary repairs ahead of the next race as he is always someone to watch.

Dan Archibald Dominates OSCAAR Hot Rod Series Feature at Kawartha

The OSCAAR Hot Rods have a third feature winner in four events, with Dan Archibald scoring the victory on Friday night at Kawartha Speedway.

Archibald won the first heat ahead of Dan Price, Tyler Hawn, Adam Misener, Steve Mayhew, and Art Rodgers.

Come time for the feature, it’d be Rodgers starting on pole ahead of Mayhew, Misener, Hawn, Price and Archibald.

The feature saw an early battle for the lead between Hawn and Mayhew, with Hawn grabbing the top spot. Hawn wasn’t able to lead for long, though, as he was passed on the third by Archibald for the lead.

Archibald tried to gap the field and was able to do so at times, but didn’t get too far away from Hawn who pressured him through the middle portion of the 20-lap event. However, there was no stopping Archibald as he led the rest of the way to victory.

So in his OSCAAR Hot Rod debut, Dan Archibald became the third driver to score a series victory. Tyler Hawn finished second to continue his streak of no finishes outside of the top-two in four races to date.

Adam Misener placed third for his third podium finish, with Mayhew fourth for his second top-five. Art Rodgers was fifth for his second top-five, with Dan Price rounding out the field.

Glenn Watson won the second heat ahead of Charlie Gallant, John Cadman, Derrick Tiemersma, and Derek Lynch.

Ultimately, it wasn’t meant to be Kimball as a radiator hose let go on the No. 29 Super Late Model, bringing his early dominate run to a halt on Lap 18 of 50.

The restart saw a battle for the lead between Cadman and Watson, with Watson grabbing the top spot. Watson then began to gap the field ahead of Cadman as Balson made his way by Gallant to move up into the third spot.
