INNISFIL, Ontario — After an exciting event at Sunset Speedway last month, the Outlaw Midgets presented by Canadian Tire Innisfil will return to the oval once again as part of Fall Velocity on Saturday, September 17.
Larry Lawson enters this weekend with momentum, following a fourth in the most recent event, to give him just nine finishes no worse than fourth in the last 14 series events. He enters this weekend ranked second in the standings and hopes to find the same success which led him to a pair of podiums in the last six Sunset races.
Rob Harrison has been getting faster with each bit of experience behind the wheel, and it shows with back-to-back top-five’s on the tour including a runner-up. He has been solid at Sunset in 2022 with a sixth and fifth in the pair of events.
Jamie Kay has had a rocky season to date, but enters this weekend with momentum following back-to-back top-five’s after a third last month. Notably, he placed fifth in Fall Velocity last season.
Jessica James arguably enters this weekend with the most momentum, having scored 11 victories in the last 13 races, including the past 10 straight.
Kayla has been getting faster since her debut in the series, as evident by a career-best sixth at Sauble Speedway. She was solid at Sunset in June, picking up a ninth-place finish.
Dan Kviring hopes to keep the string of recent success going, having scored six straight top-10 finishes.
Dave Inglis is also on the same page, with a top-10 performance in five of his six tour appearances. Notably, his season-best seventh came at Sunset in August.
Jason Metcalfe may be new to the tour, but do not take your eyes off of him following a fifth in his debut at Sauble Speedway. He backed it up with an eighth at Sunset last month.
Dave Bradley almost got the job done last month at Sunset, scoring a runner-up finish to James. He has been fast this season, with four top-five’s in five tour appearances in 2022.
Mike Bradley enters this weekend ranked sixth in the standings, and hopes to return to top-10 competition after crashing out at Sauble Speedway. He should be able to, having scored 18 top-five’s in the past 23 races. notably, the success at Sunset on its own is strong, having scored six podiums in the last 10 appearances.
Kevin Spiez hopes to keep the momentum rolling following seven top-10’s in eight races, including a season-best third in the most recent event at Sauble Speedway. Notably, he has scored a top-10 in three of his four most recent Sunset Speedway appearances, including a fourth at Fall Velocity.
Zach Millman hopes to turn his luck around, with the team feeling plagued by issues that have kept them from feature contention. If things are in order, he could be one to watch following a track-best seventh last season.
Mikey Homewood’s return to the tour has been solid, with five top-10’s in eight races, including a pair of those at Sunset.
Rob McCall is always someone to watch, as evident by a top-five in his last three series appearances. He knows how to get the job done in a midget, as a past feature winner, and was fourth at Sunset Speedway back in June.
Dan Bound has started off his Outlaw Midget career on a roll, scoring a top-five in each of his three appearances, including a runner-up at Sunset in June.
