OWEN SOUND, Ontario — If there’s a race happening somewhere across the province of Ontario, expect Wally Wilson to be there as the family-backed team will be putting together a busy summer in 2021.
The first weekend with fans in the grandstands will be no exception, as Wilson run the APC Auto Parts United Late Model Series season opener at Delaware Speedway on Friday, before racing the Outlaw Midget on Saturday and Sunday at Sauble Speedway.
Wilson enters the weekend with confidence, following a successful Late Model test at Sauble last week, and hopes to put the mechanical gremlins of week one at Flamboro Speedway behind him.
“My thoughts going into this season as we need get laps, and have better weather,” he commented. “I’m most excited to hopefully get to do some laps on a race day!”
This weekend is the first many busy ones ahead, as Wilson will be traveling the province, with plans to run the full APC Series schedule and Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modified tour. For the events that conflict, the team will make the decision at that time as to what events to pursue.
“My goals are to get as much seat time as possible, and stick with the pack,” he added.
It will mark Wilson’s third year behind the wheel of a Pro Late Model, set to build on the experience gained on a limited basis the past couple seasons in events entered at Sauble and Flamboro. Purchasing a newer car over the winter, they hope it will help improve their outfit overall.
Prior to driving the Pro Late Model, Wilson gained experience in the OSCAAR Modified ranks, and has seen steady improvement over each year behind the wheel. He has been able to score a couple top-10 points finishes, and earned a career-best eighth in 2020 at Sunset Speedway.
When he is not partaking in those tour events, he will throw it back to his roots with the Outlaw Midget tour. Wilson is no stranger to the smaller cars, having won a couple heat races through the years, and now hopes to capture his first feature checkered.
If all three of those tours are not in action, then Wilson plans to enter the Pro Late Model in the weekly events at both Sunset and Flamboro. The driver of the No. 69 noted he would be referencing Sunset over Flamboro, referencing his confidence being higher there than any other track in the province.
Wally Wilson Racing will have support from The Fyre Place & Patio Shop, Have1.com, Mister Transmission in Owen Sound, and Napoleon.
