It seems the Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modified history books are slowly being re-written with each passing event as Andy Kamrath was able to write another chapter with a trip to victory lane at Jukasa Motor Speedway last weekend.
After starting third, he would make the move of the event in going three-wide on an early race restart to get by rookies Jake Watson and T.J. Edwards to secure the lead. From there, he drove away from the pack, holding a healthy advantage throughout the 40-lap affair. Even a late-race caution did not derail his efforts, as he held off Edwards on the restart.
“It was pretty good,” he commented. “That’s all we wanted to do – to come here and win this race. It gets another one off the bucket list. We’ve won a race at all the tracks that we’re active at so we’re happy.”
For Kamrath, it marks his sixth career OSCAAR victory, and notably fifth in a row. Through those six wins, the driver of the No. 89c LRR, Havelock Metal Roofs, AM Group of Companies, Imagewraps Modified has won at four different speedways – Sunset Speedway, Flamboro Speedway, Peterborough Speedway, and now Jukasa Motor Speedway – proving the diversity of his team.
Perhaps the most impressive statistic is being able to claim an average finish of 1.486 across his seven races behind the wheel of a Modified.
He will hope to carry that momentum when the modifieds head to Flamboro Speedway in September, which was the sight of a victory for Kamrath at Frostoberfest. In a pair of events there, he has finished fourth and first.
“We made some gains over the winter,” he commented. “I’m excited to get to Flamboro to see if we can make it a little better, but it’s going to back to our own backyard so we have high hopes.”
