With the division growing with each passing week, the OSCAAR Hot Rods are ready for the sixth event of the 2017 season, which will take place at Sunset Speedway’s Velocity 250. It’ll be a busy weekend for teams, with a pair of features on tap across the two days.
Inaugural event winner Tyler Hawn confirmed he will have his 1966 Chevrolet Belmont, with the team hopeful for their third victory. Hawn won the first event at Kawartha Speedway, followed by a win on the dirt at Brighton Speedway. In the other two events he ran, he placed second in both, with Darryl Stephenson scoring a third at Flamboro Speedway in July.
Adam Misener hopes the bad luck that saw him unable to start that feature at Flamboro in his 1964 Impala is gone for good, as he searches for his second career OSCAAR victory. He placed second in the inaugural event at Kawartha, before winning the series’ first trip to Flamboro in June. He then backed it up with a third at Kawartha in July.
Nick Clarke came out swinging in his series debut with his Nova, scoring the victory at Flamboro Speedway despite dealing with some mechanical problems. He’ll hope to have those squared away as he hunts for his second straight win.
Dan Price will make his third series start behind the wheel of his 1957 Chevrolet. Derek Henderson ran the first two events, placing fourth and third. Price then debuted at Brighton in July with a fourth, followed by a sixth at Kawartha a week later. With previous experience at Sunset Speedway, this could be his best chance to break through for victory.
Five more drivers – Lance Foster, Jerry Broom, Kenny McNicol, Douglas Fischer and Tom Podd – are set to debut their rides, currently putting in as much time and effort as they can within their schedules to be ready.
Beyond those mentioned here, there are other drivers that may show their face at the Velocity 250 so be sure to be in attendance to see these cars in action. Details about the event can be found at http://www.oscaar.ca or http://www.sunsetspeedway.ca.
