After putting on a stellar show at Jukasa Motor Speedway last weekend, the OSCAAR Hot Rod Series drivers will be back at Canada’s crown jewel once again this weekend on Saturday June 23 for an action-packed day of action.
It will mark the second time the Hot Rods have raced at Jukasa Motor Speedway, as Tyler Hawn will look to make it back-to-back wins. After Billy Alderson Jr. led the early stages of the event, Hawn made the pass midway through, pacing the field the rest of the way en route to victory lane. With the Hot Rod Series continually putting on a good shows on a weekly basis with passing no matter the track, fans are stoked to see what happens this weekend.
As noted, all eyes will be on Hawn as he hopes to make magic happen once again at the end of the 20-lap feature, building on the momentum that he has built thus far this season. In four races to date this year, he has scored three wins and a seventh.
The 2018 season marks the first year of OSCAAR competition for Alderson Jr., and he certainly has started off strong with four straight top-six finishes, including a pair of runner-ups. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as he won Full Throttle Motor Speedway’s track championship twice.
Douglas Fischer hopes that his trend of continued improvement in each event pays off. He has scored seven straight top-seven finishes dating back to last year, including a fourth-place finish last weekend at Jukasa.
The Clarke Racing team knows what it takes to win in OSCAAR, as Nick Clarke was one of the four drivers to score a victory last year, following a pair at Flamboro Speedway. After experiencing mechanical issues last weekend at Jukasa, there’s no doubt he’ll hope to get his luck turned around this weekend.
Dan Price cannot make this weekend’s event at Jukasa due to a prior commitment, but has got Logan Shwedyk scheduled to drive the car in his place. Shwedyk made his OSCAAR debut last year, scoring a fourth-place finish at Flamboro Speedway.
Price’s teammate Derek Henderson will be looking for a solid run, as he has continually got better in each appearance this year with a season-best seventh last weekend at Jukasa Motor Speedway.
Since joining the OSCAAR scene this year, Steve Book has been consistent with a pair of sevenths and pair of fifths in the first four events this season.
Jerry Broom will hope to continue getting strong after posting a season-best sixth-place finish at Jukasa last weekend.
Steve Mayhew could easily be the underdog to watch for the win this weekend as he surprised some of the fans with a third-place finish last weekend at Jukasa.
The OSCAAR Hot Rod Series will be back at Jukasa Motor Speedway on June 23 alongside the OSCAAR Modifieds and the Ontario Outlaw Super Late Model Series. Event details are located at https://www.jukasamotorspeedway.com/.
