INNISFIL, Ontario — When the OSCAAR Modifieds take to Sunset Speedway this weekend for the Velocity 250, one of the drivers in the field hoping to take home the win will be A.J. Emms.
“To win at the Velocity would really mean a lot to our whole team being that it’s both a big event and a home track for our team,” he said. “With the luck we’ve had this season, we’ve only run a part time bases which has made us even hungrier for wins. We’re going to do everything in our power to have a strong run.”
Knowing that it will be a long race with 40 laps being the distance, Emms says his plan is to run as hard as he can all race long.
“We need to start near the front, exercise patience, and stay out of trouble to be there at the end,” he added.
So far this season, Emms Racing has been successful with top-five finishes in each of their appearances this season, highlighted by a pair of runner-ups at Jukasa Motor Speedway.
The confidence entering this weekend also comes from a top-five in his most recent Sunset Speedway appearance.
“Having a lot of laps at sunset is definitely an advantage and helps our teams confidence heading into this weekend,” he said. “We’re excited to get out onto the track.”
The team is also pleased to announce that they will be competing at Autumn Colours Classic in the OSCAAR Modified, something that has the driver of the No. 14 very ecstatic for based on his victory there two years ago and a runner-up at Peterborough in August.
Emms Racing is proud to be supported by BAE Environmental, FMR Scrap Buyers, Artech Promotional Products, Klotz Canada, WIX Filters, Peter Built Racecars, TSS Top Shops, and Creecher’s Design for 2018.
