4 OSCAAR Hot Rod Series Competitors to Watch this Weekend at Jukasa Motor Speedway

‘Kodiak’ Tyler Hawn

The former OSCAAR Super Late Model Series mainstay has found a new home with the burgeoning Hot Rod Series. After working quickly to establish himself throughout the inaugural season in 2017, Hawn has been nonstop impressive already in 2018, fashioning a number of victories – including the tour’s debut at Jukasa on June 16th. ‘Kodiak’ is as methodical a driver as you’ll ever hope to meet, and with equipment preparation that oft-promises to leave no stone unturned, this Oro-Station, ON product is a threat for the win each and every time his family-run team unloads their gorgeous No. 2.

Billy Alderson Jr.

This second-generation cut his teeth on the bullring at what is now known as Full Throttle Motor Speedway. But, while close-quarter combat may have been his specialty throughout his formative years, Alderson has proven quite adept at competing at high speeds on big tracks – most recently netting a runner-up finish in the Hot Rod Series’ debut at Jukasa in June 16th. This Saturday, keep an eye on Alderson’s No. 18, as he appears primed for a breakout performance and a first career OSCAAR-sanctioned win.

Douglas Fischer

Perhaps the most recognizable of any car on the Hot Rod Series roster, Douglas Fischer and his lauded ‘Nasty Nova’ have appeared on the cusp of a breakthrough performance for several weeks. The Mount Forest, ON racer has a runner-up finish at Kawartha Speedway to his credit this season and has been working nonstop with Streamline Race Products’ Shaun McWhirter to formulate a setup package that should help him inject himself into the mix when his No. 3 hits the track at Jukasa.

Steve Mayhew

Longtime Kawartha Speedway Thunder Car veteran Steve Mayhew has been a big addition to the Hot Rod Series ranks in 2018. The Cobourg, ON native has a bevy of experience on big tracks and years of experience that has served him well in limited appearances with the tour this season. Most recently, Mayhew tallied a third-place finish in his first tour start at Jukasa on June 16th and will be unquestionably looking to build on that performance with a first career series win.
