After winning the inaugural OSCAAR Pro Midget Championship, Ted Greenwood debuted a brand new chassis for 2017 in hopes of backing up the crown. Ultimately, it didn’t pan out as envisioned.
Missing the season opener, he made his first start of the year at Flamboro Speedway in June. It didn’t pan out as some would’ve hoped for, with Greenwood posting a 10th-place finish. His second event went much better, though, as he scored a third at Sauble Speedway.
Greenwood skipped the next event at Flamboro in July, putting J.R. Fitzpatrick behind the wheel of the No. 1 entry. The veteran didn’t disappoint, leading the first eight laps before finishing second to Jordan Hanna.
Ultimately, the momentum didn’t carry forward to Peterborough Speedway, with a pair of 13th-place finishes, but Greenwood didn’t give up. He rebounded with a pair of top-fives at Grand Bend Speedway. Unfortunately, the bad luck returned with a 12th at Sauble Speedway.
While the first half of the year was a roller coaster, Greenwood closed the year on a high. He scored a pair of podiums at Flamboro Speedway in August, followed by a fifth at Grand Bend. He then capped the year off with a fourth at Peterborough Speedway, after battling for third throughout.
Greenwood has already sold the car to an up-and-coming driver, Norman Newman. In return, Greenwood will be busy in the off-season being the next generation of Evolution Chassis in hopes of returning back to victory lane.
OSCAAR congratulates Ted Greenwood on his success this past season, and wishes both Ted & Norman the best of luck in 2018.
