2020 Living Lighting OSCAAR Pro Sprint Series Silly Season Synopsis

With OSCAAR ready to celebrate their 30th year of racing in Ontario, it seems there are a bunch of drivers hoping to add their name to the Pro Sprint record books this season.

In keeping up with the discussion, here are some competitors who have openly discussed their 2020 plans as of May 5, 2020.

After showing that he could run with the front runners on a weekly basis in 2019, there’s only one thing on James Stanley’s mind as we enter 2020 – the Living Lighting OSCAAR Pro Sprint Championship.

“I’ve had my eyes on it for many, many years and I feel we finally have the right package to complete that this coming season,” he commented.

After getting his feet wet in midget competition the past year, Josh Inglis is ready to tackle the challenge of suspension with the Living Lighting OSCAAR Pro Sprints.

“Going into the 2020 season, we’re hoping to learn a lot, have some fun, and hopefully be competitive,” Josh Inglis.

Car owner Sean Lazary echoed the thoughts of his driver, feeling that they’ve put together a strong program for a successful 2020 campaign. However, they recognize it will be a learning curve process in getting to the front.

“SL Motorsports with our driver Josh Inglis has plans to run a pro late model program at some point in the future,” Lazary commented. “So the learning curve with suspension will help getting us there.”

After a solid, yet fun campaign, it’s no surprise Rob McCall is looking forward to the season ahead of him.

“I am just looking forward to having some fun,” he said. “When I got with the OSCAAR tour last year, it was a big adjustment going to the suspended cars from being a flat-bottom guy for many years. The ride is no comparison as it is a lot smoother, and I really enjoyed myself last year. So we’re really looking to build on what we started last year and hopefully get to the point where we can contend for some wins.”

After a solid campaign last year that earned him the Most Improved Driver Award at the banquet, Kevin Taylor is ready to push for more in 2020.

“We’ll be running a full season in 2020,” he commented. “I would have to say that my expectations would be at least one or two top-three feature finishes this season.

Ready to embark on his third campaign, Tyler Cullen is ready to improve upon his success the past two years.

“This season, I’m looking optimistic even though the last two seasons have been a little rough for us,” he commented. “I think this year will be our year to shine, hopefully. Got a new engine coming in, and I think this year will be a better year overall than we have had and hopefully some of the bad luck from other years will turn into good luck this year.”

Following a successful rookie campaign, it’s no surprise that Brad Holmes is excited for another season.

“Looking into 2020, I’m extremely excited,” he commented. “Stanley Motorsports had one of its most successful campaigns and we plan to improve on it. We plan to come out with a new car which is also exciting as it presents a new challenge for all of us. It should be interesting for sure.”

Looking ahead to 2020, Ryan Battilana says he is looking forward to the opportunity ahead.

“I think the championship is up for grabs by anyone,” he said. “It’s going to be an exciting year for both the drivers and the fans of the sport.”
