Making his return to Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC, Scott Reinhart Trailer Sales Ltd OSCAAR Modified competition following a short hiatus, Brad Pearsall proved that he had not missed a beat en route to capping off the year ranked ninth in the standings.
His return did not start off as strongly as envisioned, with a pair of finishes outside of the top-10 at Jukasa Motor Speedway and Sunset Speedway. Though when he returned to the Innisfil, Ontario oval a month later, all the bugs seemed to be worked out as Pearsall found his way into the top-five midway through the feature. Unfortunately, contact resulted in him spinning on Lap 22, with only being able to rebound back to finish ninth.
He carried the momentum to Flamboro Speedway, leading the first couple of laps after starting on pole en route to scoring a runner-up finish. He then led 48 laps from the pole position at Peterborough Speedway, only to be passed for the lead with two laps to go en route to finishing third. Pearsall was then able to finish off the month of August strong, scoring a third-place finish in the series’ return to Flamboro.
The double header weekend at Sunset Speedway started off well for Pearsall, as he was strong in qualifying with a runner-up finish in his second heat. He also ran up front through the first 36-lap feature on Saturday, ultimately crossing the finish line with a seventh-place finish. He returned on Sunday poised for another solid run, when he got caught up in a wreck following contact off of turn four with four laps to go. Instead of finishing inside the top-five, he would be credited with a 13th-place finish.
Pearsall made the necessary repairs, and ran inside the top-five all day at Flamboro Speedway en route to finishing fourth at Frostoberfest.
Although he was unable to score a victory in his return, Pearsall easily proved that he has not missed a beat being in the thick of action all year long. On behalf of OSCAAR, congratulations to Brad Pearsall on his success in 2019. It was great to see the No. 15 back on-track this past season and we look forward to seeing you once again in 2020.
