With OSCAAR ready to celebrate their 30th year of racing in Ontario, it seems that the open-wheel stars are looking to capitalize on the added hype with a great season of racing across the province.
In keeping up with the discussion, here are some more competitors who have openly discussed their 2020 Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modifieds presented by Scott Reinhart Trailer Sales Ltd., Touchwood Cabinets, and The Fyre Place & Patio Shop plans as of March 30, 2020.
After experiencing some rough luck through his rookie campaign, Bryan Batty is hoping for a stronger sophomore campaign.
“There’s a lot of strong teams and they are all improving,” he said. “That just means we are in for a long off season to make sure our car is capable of being competitive.”
On top of the returning faces, the modifieds will see growth entering the 2020 campaign, with several new faces vying for Rookie of the Year honors. After spending the last couple years behind the wheel of a late model, T.J. Edwards is the latest driver to step up into the division. Entering the season, he is hoping to have a good finish each night, while keeping the car in one piece and learning.
“The biggest thing is this is a learning year,” he commented. “We don’t want to wreck each night, right? You gain respect – you have to gain respect as a rookie from the veterans that are in this class.”
On the flip side, experience is there when you look at a guy like Andy Kamrath, who hopes to keep collecting checkered flags in 2020.
“My thoughts entering this season are much like they were last year,” Kamrath said. “Come out every weekend and go for the win like we did last year, and of course have some fun with the team along the way.”
Stay tuned to the OSCAAR website for a full interview with Andy Kamrath in the coming days.
