2021 Super Stock Drivers to Watch Part 4

Ken Grubb

Despite last season being a shortened campaign, Ken Grubb proved he is still someone to always keep an eye on. That’s why three of his competitors mentioned his name in their answers.

The No. 36 Ford was able to find victory lane last season at Flamboro Speedway following a race-long battle with Rick Verberne. He then backed it up with a podium performance at Sauble Speedway after waging war with Todd Davenport and Frank Davey. Combined with a 2019 title at the beach, and you could say things are pointed their direction easily.

2021 Plans: Our team is looking forward to competing in the United Racing Series Championship as well as at our local home track Sunset Speedway.
Goals: We’re looking to build on our success from the previous two seasons to fight for wins on a weekly basis and hopefully the chance to fight for the Championship title!
What makes Super Stocks fun? The people that are in it. There is quite a community feel, as shown in 2020 with over 30 car fields.
Drivers to Watch: As a team that wants to win, there are four drivers I look at when entering race day that I know will be tough to beat on any given occasion – Ken Grubb, Trevor Collver, Andy Kamrath, and Ryan Semple

When you look at young drivers in the sport, Tiemersma is one of those that everybody is focusing on as someone who is on the cusp of breaking out into being a star of the division. Big stage wins in 2018 and 2019 caused people to look towards the No. 17, and the momentum carried into the COVID-19 shortened campaign with strong performances as Tiemersma ran inside the top-five.

The only question remaining – will 2021 be the year for a championship?

Trevor Collver

2021 Plans: Full-time at Delaware Speedway and full-time in the APC Super Stock series.
2021 Goals: We hope to be in contention for both Championships. We have done a lot of work in the off-season and will be ready to come out of the box strong in May.
What makes the Super Stocks fun? The competition. Multiple drivers can win on any given night at Delaware and especially in the touring series. You always need to be on your game!
Drivers to Watch: Count on Zardo, Mcferran, Tiemersma and Dyson to be in Victory lane this summer.

When polling different drivers and fans throughout the province, Trevor Collver’s name came up the most – and there’s a good reason why. Collver was victorious last season at Canada’s Crown Jewel, scoring a dominating victory at Jukasa Motor Speedway in September. He also ran well throughout the APC mini series, putting himself in contention to win at Sauble Speedway.  By year’s end, it showed in the standings as he walked away with the (unofficial) 2020 MRE Super Stock Series Championship.

The performance just backs up what we’ve come to expect from Collver, as he won at Jukasa in 2019 as well, and is a past Super Stock Champion at Delaware Speedway.
