With each season that comes up in the Ontario short tracks, there is always a list of drivers that everyone is keeping an eye on with each other division, wondering how they’re going to perform. The Super Stocks are no different, as evident by the success and strength of the Qwick Wick Super Stock Series since launched.
There are a bunch of drivers who are capable of winning, but here are 34 drivers that are on the radar of people across the province.
As always, be sure to comment with your thoughts – whether positive or negative, and enjoy getting to know these competitors a little more.
2022 Plans: Running limited late models full-time at Sunset. Then we also have a new super stock coming that we are going to run the five Qwick Wick races with, and the weekends we have off with the limited late.
2022 Goals and Expectations: One of my goals this summer would be to win a Qwick Wick race and hopefully the championship in the late models at Sunset. I’d like to try and get a handful of feature wins this season as well.
Drivers to Watch: Brandon McFerran, Ethan Constable, Gerrit Timersma, Lane Zardo, Carson Nagy
Most Memorable / Biggest Moment: 2021 Velocity 250 last year in the limited late and frostoberfest in 2015 in the mini stock
No matter what he has driven in his career to date, Miles Tyson has shown speed and ability to get to victory lane, from Mini Stocks and Super Stocks to Limited Late Model and Legends. His return to the Super Stock division even on a partial basis should put everyone on notice in knowing just what he can capable of.

Most Memorable Moment: Watching my Dad win in a car I setup
Another driver can get the job done in just about any car that he jumps behind the wheel of, as seen with years of victories in both late model and super stock competition. Although he did not pick up a checkered flag in super stocks in 2021, he was a consistent fixture up front battling for wins, as seen through especially at Frostoberfest.
14. Ryden Lapcevich
The Lapcevich family has a rich history in Canadian motorsports, with recent success courtesy of both Cayden and Treyten Lapcevich. Ryden is ready to write his own chapter too, as seen through his debut season of Super Stock competition. He held his own against the best of Delaware Speedway, including a trip to victory lane. He also traveled to Flamboro Speedway for a solid finish there, too.
13. Jason Parker
2022 Plans: Qwick Wick Series races along with the Dash for Cash and The Boss of the Beach races at Sauble Speedway
2022 Goals: Looking for some wins this year in the Super Stock. Starting with a new car again this yearm and hope we can come out of the box with no gremlins.
Drivers to Watch: Looks like a strong group of cars again this year setting there sights on the Qwick Wicks series. With run four different tracks, I think there will be different cars that are strong at each track – Trevor Collver and Pete Vanderwyvst at Delaware Speedway, Carson Nagy had them covered at Peterborough Speedway, Kyle Passer and Lane Zardo are good at Sunset. Lots of cars to watch!!
Most Memorable Moment: Lots of great memories at Sauble for 2004-2014 running late model. Won a few championship and always lots of tough competition to keep you on your toes. 2015 & 2016 were great in the APC Late Model Series as we had a couple top-five points finish
When Jason Parker announced he would be getting behind the wheel of a super stock last year, a lot of people expected trips to victory lane. He was consistent in the Qwick Wick Series with an average finish of 7.2 across the five races, including a season-best fourth at Delaware Speedway. He also was able to pick up a couple checkered flags at Sauble Speedway, as well as three feature top-five’s and a heat win at Sunset Speedway.

A regular at Peterborough Speedway, Tyler Bouillon held his own at his home track with a couple wins to his credit. He also traveled around the province, scoring three top-10’s at Flamboro Speedway including a fourth in September. It’s just a matter of avoiding some of the bad luck and misfortune that has plagued them each year.
11. Marlie Owen
Another Peterborough Speedway competitor, Marlie Owen has continued to grow as a driver each season behind the wheel. She visited feature victory lane at her home track in 2021 and scored a ninth at Sunset Speedway in Qwick Wick Super Stock competition. More impressive was how quickly she was able to adapt to a super late model, scoring a heat victory at Sunset Speedway to become the first female to do so.
10. Dan Archibald
Some people may focus on the controversy that seems to surround this man, but he has also proven his ability behind the wheel as a racecar driver. Battling on a weekly basis at Sunset Speedway last season, he scored a feature victory on the second night of competition, as well as a heat win.
9. Mark Gordon
A frequent visitor to Peterborough Speedway victory lane, Mark Gordon has proven multiple times over that he knows how to get the job done in dominating style on any given night.
