It may have been a shortened season for the Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modifieds presented by Scott Reinhart Trailer Sales Ltd., Touchwood Cabinets, and The Fyre Place & Patio Shop, but it doesn’t mean it was not packed with action.
As we take a look back at the year that was, here is a glance back statistical wise at this past season.
