With each season that comes up in the Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modifieds, there is always a list of drivers that everyone is keeping an eye on, wondering how they’re going to perform.
As a couple of his competitors mentioned, A.J. Emms is a consistent front runner in the series, and it shows with the statistics in being able to score over 20 top-10’s in a row. The team’s continued work in their program paid off despite the shortened 2020 campaign, with a victory at Sunset Speedway and there top-10 finishes.
Taking the words straight from fellow competitor Wally Wilson, “Dale Reinhart is always a threat to win; he’s usually in the top-five every race.”
It showed last season, as evident by a third-place finish at Sunset Speedway, one of his two top-10 performances. You could also say same story for 2019, with five top-five’s and 10 top-10’s, including a win at Delaware Speedway.
Despite being just four starts into OSCAAR Modified career, T.J. Edwards is already making an impression with seven different people mentioning the No. 34 among their drivers to watch. One of the fans to comment, Jason Green, said it simply, “T.J Edwards will definitely be a force to recon with; (he) puts a lot of heart and muscle into what he’s building.”
The shortened schedule saw him make an impression with just one finish outside of the top-six, and that was due to an incident on-track. The biggest thing which surprised a lot of people was seeing a runner-up in his series debut at Jukasa Motor Speedway, followed by a win in the return to the Crown Jewel a month later.
Is it a surprise to see Andy Kamrath get the most mentions – eight – out of his fellow competitors? Probably not, considering the amount of wins racked up the last two years alone with seven in total – including a string of five in a row. Perhaps the most impressive thing is seeing the diversity of tracks he has checkered flags collected at, ranging from Jukasa Motor Speedway and Sunset Speedway, to Peterborough Speedway to Flamboro Speedway.
The only thing missing is a championship, and that could easily come in the next full-time campaign should the No. 89c team enter all the events.
