It’s no secret that there’s been a lot of good news coming lately from OSCAAR with sponsor announcements for dates across the entire schedule. The excitement has trickled down to the drivers, as they continue to reveal details surrounding the 2019 campaign. The proof is shown with four previous editions of the silly season portal being dedicated to the series.

So here are some more competitors who have openly discussed their plans as of March 1, 2019.
Longtime racer Ken Hayward (pictured top) is set to run with the Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC Modifieds in 2019 after making a couple select starts over the past two seasons. He has shown promise, pacing some laps at Sauble Speedway two years ago.
Another familiar face that will be at Sunset Speedway’s Spring Velocity on May 18 and 19 is Craig Scott, as he is in the midst of preparing the No. 69s for the season.
Remember the No. 18 modified that Jason Keen piloted to a top-five in the year-end standings? As Keen prepares his new ride, it was announced that Robert James bought his previous car, and will have veteran Stu Robinson Jr. behind the wheel.
After a solid rookie season in the OSCAAR Modified division, Jason Bowden is ready to go for another year. The hype is there to get back behind the wheel, but also through the schedule changes the series has made in Delaware Speedway returning to the calendar.
“Adding Delaware will be really good,” Bowden said. “I think we’ll put on really good shows at Delaware. I think also being there with ISMA, they always draw a real big crowd, so it will be good for OSCAAR to showcase in front of that many people.”
Also, Gary McLean told Cabral Racing Promotions that he and crew chief/car owner Greg Gibson will be running a partial modified schedule on top of their Super Late Model racing endeavors.
“If I’m being honest I really don’t think there’ll ever be a year where Greg and I aren’t racing a Modified at least a few times,” stated McLean. “We don’t really have a set schedule for our Mod this season but I can guarantee that we’ll be running the Rick Woolner Memorial on July 6th.”
After a solid rookie campaign, it’s no secret that Ryan Battilana is one of the drivers that everybody is watching heading into the 2019 Living Lighting OSCAAR Pro Sprint season.
“I’m excited to get back to it, knowing how these cars react now,” he commented.
Throughout the 2018 season, many youngsters caught the attention of fans watching OSCAAR. One of those drivers who stood out was OSCAAR Pro Sprint competitor Tyler Cullen.
“Personally, it will be a pretty good year for OSCAAR as a whole, especially with the Sprint division with all the drivers coming back and some coming to the series that are new,” he commented. “I feel like it’s going to be like a really good season for OSCAAR and a competitive one.”
The Knightworks Design OSCAAR Hot Rods also received some news, as Brandon Feeney has partnered with Dan Price Racing to drive the No. 09 Chevrolet in select events this season.
We also advise keeping watch on Instagram, too, as there’s been some news dropping with Parker Bowman sharing a photo of his new Hot Rod.
