OSCAAR Pro Sprint Peterborough Speedway Preview

After a thriller at Flamboro Speedway, the OSCAAR Pro Sprints are primed and ready for their fourth event of the 2018 campaign at Peterborough Speedway this weekend.

The man to beat is Daniel Hawn as he has swept the first three races this season, giving him eight straight dating back to last year. For the record, he has won the last two features at Peterborough as part of that stretch.

James Stanley will be looking good run after running into mechanical issues at Flamboro Speedway. He has run well at Peterborough previously, scoring a podium in each of his last two starts.

Rob Summers will be looking for a top-10 finish this weekend after making significant contact with the frontstretch wall during his qualifying heat race, ending his night early. In his last four races at Peterborough, he has only one finish outside of the top-five.

He won’t be the only member of the Summers family to watch, though, as Kelly Summers will be hoping to make her second trip to Peterborough Speedway’s famed victory lane come the end of the night. She was solid in her first start of the season at Flamboro with a sixth-place finish.

Gary Triska will be looking for another top-10 after picking up a season-best eighth at Flamboro Speedway. Notably, he has yet to score one in three starts at Peterborough.

Brody Rickwood could break through for his first top-10 of the season, if the mechanical issues that have been plaguing his team thus far this year go run and hide. He has ran well at Peterborough, scoring a track-best fifth in May 2017.

Shawn Stanley will be looking for his third straight top-10, following a season-best seventh at Flamboro Speedway. He finished eighth at Peterborough last fall.

Ryan Battilana will hope to score his first OSCAAR podium finish this weekend as he has started off the 2018 campaign with a pair of fourths and an 11th.

Coming off a runner-up finish at Flamboro for his second straight top-five, you have to expect Jaden Riddel to be a possible candidate to score his first career series win this weekend.

You also have to keep your eye on the other youngster Tyler Cullen, as he scored a season-best third at Flamboro for his first career podium finish.

Kevin Taylor hopes to carry the momentum forward following his second career OSCAAR top-five at Flamboro with a fifth-place finish.

Parker Bowman will be looking to get his season back on-track as he showed speed with a sixth in the season opener, though finished 14th in his most recent event.

Norman Newman made his OSCAAR debut at Peterborough last year with a sixth-place finish, kickstarting his want to be behind the wheel this season. He has done well so far this year, entering this weekend on the heels of back-to-back top-five finishes.

The Anthony brothers will hope to get the bugs worked out as issues plagued their runs, keeping them both outside of the top-10 at Sunset Speedway.

Brian MacDonald made his 2018 OSCAAR Pro Sprint debut at Flamboro, scoring a solid 10th-place finish.

Sophie Horton may be a rookie, but she’s proving that she can race door-to-door with the best in OSCAAR Pro Sprint competition after scoring a pair of runner-ups to kick off 2018.
