Steve Book Dominate En Route to Second Straight OSCAAR Hot Rod Victory

Steve Book Wins First Race at Jukasa Motor Speedway in 2020

Despite drawing an eight on the invert, Steve Book made his way to the front quickly en route to winning the Knightworks Design OSCAAR Hot Rods presented by Sauble Falls Tent and Trailer Park feature at Jukasa Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Book laid down the quickest lap in time trials at 20.782 seconds, ahead of Trevor Thompson (20.916), Tom Walters (21.098), Tyler Hawn (21.194), and Ed Bowlby (21.245). However, he’d draw an eight on the invert, giving the pole position to Jay Doerr.

Jay Doerr would start pole ahead of Paul Senior, Scott Beatty, Ed Bowlby, Tyler Hawn, Tom Walters, Trevor Thompson, Steve Book, Adrian Foster, and Jeremy McLean. Nick Clarke started 11th, followed by Bill Clarke, Dan Rothwell, Bob Parsons, Paul Boundy, Dalen Martin, Darcy Gribbon, Matt Young, and Ryan Cowan.

Doerr jumped out to the early lead, with Hawn and Senior side-by-side for second. Hawn got the spot, with Book challenging Senior for third on Lap 3. Book easily took over the spot, moving into second two laps later. Hawn ran third ahead of Thompson and Senior. Thompson then got alongside Hawn for third on Lap 7, getting the spot a lap later.

Behind them, Senior and Walters ran side-by-side for fifth, with Beatty and Bowlby battling for seventh. Walters moved into fifth on Lap 10, with Bowlby looking to follow him through. He’d be unable to do so, with the caution coming out a lap later for Rothwell going around. With 20 laps to go, Doerr led Book, Thompson, Hawn, Walters, Bowlby, Senior, Beatty, McLean, Nick Clarke, Bill Clarke, Foster, and Boundy.

Book would get a good restart, taking over the top spot ahead of Doerr, Thompson, and Walters, as Hawn and Senior battled for fifth. Senior got the spot, bringing Beatty and Bowlby through with him over the next couple laps. Hawn now ran eighth ahead of Nick Clarke and Bill Clarke, with Foster and McLean side-by-side for 11th. Foster got the spot, with Boundy looking to follow him through.

Closer to the front, Walters would look to challenge Thompson for third on Lap 19, but the caution came out due to Rothwell going up in smoke in turns one and two. Following a red flag to clean up the fluid, Book got another good restart with Thompson moving into second, but the yellow flag resurfaced due to debris in turn three.

Book would get away on the restart, with Bowlby taking Thompson and Beatty three-wide off of turn two second. Bowlby came away with the position ahead of Thompson, with Walters up to fourth ahead of Beatty, as Senior and Doerr ran side-by-side. Unfortunately, Bowlby’s top-five run came to an end when he began to slow with a mechanical issue with five laps to go.

Steve Book led the rest of the way en route to scoring the victory ahead of Trevor Thompson, Tom Walters, Scott Beatty, and Jay Doerr. Paul Senior finished sixth, followed by Tyler Hawn, Ed Bowlby, Adrian Foster, and Bill Clarke. Paul Boundy placed 11th, followed by Nick Clarke, Jeremy McLean, Matt Young, Dalen Martin, Bob Parsons, Dan Rothwell, Ryan Cowan, and Darcy Gibbon.

30th Anniversary of OSCAAR – Jukasa Motor Speedway

OSCAAR Modifieds at Jukasa Motor Speedway

The OSCAAR divisions have got a schedule in place for 2020 season, with their first stop coming up sooner than you think. The four-race campaign will kick off with a visit to Jukasa Motor Speedway on August 8.

As we get ready for the event, here’s a brief history at the track’s association with the OSCAAR brand.

This scheduled event marks the third trip to the half-mile for the Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modifieds presented by Scott Reinhart Trailer Sales Ltd., Touchwood Cabinets, and The Fyre Place & Patio Shop.

The inaugural appearance in 2018 saw five-time series champion Gary McLean dominate, leading flag-to-flag en route to scoring the victory. Although he has won 38 career races, this is an event that comes up in conversation more often than not due to the significance of Jukasa being Canada’s crown jewel.

The series’ return to the oval in 2019 saw John Harper taking the lead in the first half, pacing the field the rest of the way en route to a dominating performance and checkered flag. The moment will always go down as one of the most bittersweet moments in the series, in knowing the veteran would pass away later that month.

The series has seen an array of drivers finish in the top-10 through both events, with 15 drivers being able to do so. Notably, only three competitors have scored a top-10 in both races – Cory Horner, Jason Keen, and Dale Reinhart. The No. b10 also has shared in that honor, with Kelly Balson placing seventh in 2018, followed by J.R. Fitzpatrick in second last season.

OSCAAR Hot Rod's at Jukasa Motor Speedway

For the Knightworks Design OSCAAR Hot Rods presented by Sauble Falls Tent and Trailer Park, it will mark their fourth appearance at the half-mile, following their debut in 2018, followed by a pair of events last season.

While the modifieds have seen dominating performances en route to victory lane, it’s been a series of mid-race passes for the lead that have ultimately seen the winner emerge. The ‘ol school have also thrilled with the fans as many fans can recall other battles throughout the fields for various positions coming down to the checkered.

Tyler Hawn got the honor of winning the inaugural event, after passing Billy Alderson Jr. just past the halfway mark for the lead. Jerry Broom then turned in a sixth in 2018 to a victory the following season after passing Hawn at the halfway mark. Notice a trend here? It was Broom’s battle for the lead and contact with Paul Senior that handed Steve Book the lead with five laps to go en route to Book taking the checkered.

Given the recaps over the years, many would assume Broom is the favorite when you head to Jukasa Motor Speedway each season. While arguably true, Book is right there with him, boasting a higher average finish with third across the three events, compared to Broom’s average of 5.3.

Though if you’re looking for a fourth straight different face to grace victory lane, Nick Clarke has to be up for consideration given that he has finished in the top-10 in each of his three trips to the half-mile oval with a track-best third last September.

Another pair who have created some conversation quickly would be Jeremy McLean (fourth and fifth last season), and Jesse Kennedy (second last September). Though it’s worth noting both drivers have elected to hand over the controls of their cars to two new Hot Rod competitors.

In total, 19 different competitors have scored a top-10 at Jukasa, with eight of those having done so more than once.

The Modifieds and Hot Rods will be in action at Jukasa Motor Speedway on August 8, alongside the APC Auto Parts United Late Models of Ontario Tour. Unfortunately, due to COVID regulations, spectators will not be allowed to be in attendance. Instead, fans are encouraged to watch the event live stream at http://www.GForceTV.net.

30th Anniversary of OSCAAR – Jordan Hanna

Jordan Hanna

Through the years, only three drivers have gotten the honor of calling themselves a Living Lighting OSCAAR Pro Sprint Champion. Jordan Hanna held those coveted honors in 2017.

“I’m glad to see OSCAAR continue to bring out the fans for the past 30 years and going,” he commented. “It was fun being a part of the series for the 3 years I raced, met a lot of people and raced on some nice tracks.”

For Hanna, he was brought onto the OSCAAR scene due to aspirations of wanting to try asphalt, following 18 years of dirt competition.

“This series used the same cars we used to race on dirt but with some modifications,” he explained.

Right from the drop of the green, it seemed Hanna found the speed he needed, running up front with the best the series had to offer.

“I found the competition was great among some racers,” he said. “ I always enjoyed going through lap cars with someone tailing me. The car count was good and features were fun especially at Flamboro and Sauble beach.”

The opportunity allotted him the chance to race against some of the biggest names in sports, including J.R. Fitzpatrick, as he calls their duel together at Flamboro Speedway his fondest memory.

“It was a successful night and I felt like a superstar,” Hanna reflected. “My dad and I did this for many years and it was nice to bring home a championship as well.”

As noted, Hanna was able to hoist the series championship in 2017 after scoring eight feature victories, 10 heat wins, and 12 feature top-five’s.

“It means a lot coming from dirt and using some skills from dirt to bring on the asphalt,” he said. “I definitely used some drifting techniques to my advantage, which isn’t used as frequently on asphalt.”
