After a successful inaugural event for the OSCAAR Hot Rods at Kawartha Speedway, the second round is set for Flamboro Speedway this weekend.
Tyler Hawn grabbed the first checkered flag at Kawartha Speedway behind the wheel of his 1966 Chevrolet Belmont, and will look to go back-to-back.
“The most exciting thing I see about the Hot Rod Series is that it’s bringing back the roots of racing,” said Tyler Hawn. “There are cars are how the Super Lates were back in the early days of stock car racing. Building this car really brought out all of the old ways from my dad. He’s been so excited with the process.”
Adam Misener will certainly be looking to spoil the Hawn Motorsports party with his 1964 Impala. Misener had a great run in the class debut, posting a runner-up finish.
After experiencing fuel pick-up issues at Kawartha, Derek Henderson hopes to put the 1957 Chevrolet in victory lane for car owner Dan Price. Henderson has been successful in the past, finishing runner-up in the Mosport Street Stock points in 1995, followed by a championship a year later.
Jerry Luckhardt made his racing debut at Kawartha Speedway, fighting some adversity through the heats prior to a fifth-place finish in the feature.
There is always a possibility for more than the drivers listed here to be in the field at Flamboro Speedway on Saturday, June 24.
Along with the OSCAAR Hot Rods at Flamboro Speedway this Saturday will be the OSCAAR Modifieds, OSCAAR Super Late Models, OSCAAR Pro Midgets and OSCAAR Midgets. They will join Flamboro’s regular Pure Stocks and Pro 4 Modifieds, with racing starting at 6pm sharp. Please note the pit gate opens at 3pm.
