Donovan Price
2022 Ranking: 34th

2023 Thoughts: I’m very excited feels like I have been re energized. With acquiring a new car it has put a fire under my butt and this is the most excited I have been in a long time about racing but I still need to remember to go out and have fun
2023 Plans: To race as much as I can this summer and maybe do a Qwick Wick race or two
2023 Goals: Simple – have fun and try and win races
Drivers to Watch: Myles Tyson, Paul Boundy, Carson Nagy, Connor Maltese, Cody wilds (because he has my old car) lol

Joe Daley

2023 Thoughts: Focused directly on showing all my naysayers that I can run with the best of them again. That I’m not just a field filler.
2023 Plans: Fairly tame. Sunset regular season. The invitational at Sauble, as I love running there. And hopefully a trip to Peterborough, and maybe Delaware for a night.
2023 Goals: Simple – to finally get you to take a picture of me with a checkered flag haha. Be the best I can, with the equipment I have.
Drivers to Watch: Johnny Morrison, Nick Tooley, Matt McGrath, Connor Maltese, and of course Dwayne Baker. He’s way overdue! Lol

Making a trio of appearances at Sunset Speedway this past season, Joe Daley proved there’s potential for the future with a pair of top-10 finishes.

Running a limited schedule this past season, Miles Tyson still proved he’s one of the drivers to watch virtue of a top-five in his lone 2022 Qwick Wick Super Stock Series appearance.

Nic Ramsay
2022 Ranking: 33rd

2023 Thoughts: Very optimistic entering 2023. We ended 2022 on a high note, and have put in a ton of work so far this winter trying to find even more speed. We’re ready to come out of the gate swinging this year.
2023 Plans: To run Full time at Delaware Speedway and full-time Qwick Wick. Possibly a few extras tossed in between.
2023 Goals: The goal for the Brandy Point team is to find victory lane. The team has a couple Super Stock wins but none myself. Getting our first win together is at the top of our list
Drivers to Watch: That’s always a tough question. The talent level in the Super Stock division is incredibly high, but I’m definitely keeping an eye on Gerrit Tiemersma, Lane Zardo, Jay Doerr, Carson Nagy, and Brody Rickwood.

Nick Tooley
2022 Ranking: 29th

2023 Thoughts: I just want to be better than I was last season, let’s take the season as “one race at a time”
2023 Plans: We had a good season in 2022 after being off for 3 seasons. My goal is to continue that momentum and try to be in a closer points battle.
2023 Goals: To improve on my performances each night, and hopefully get my first feature win.
Drivers to Watch: 1: Gerrit Teimersma hands down. Smooth driver and knows his way around the track. 2: Connor Maltese, came on real strong the last few nights. 3: Lane Zardo. He is always a threat no matter where he goes. 4: Matt McGrath. He has been getting quicker each night and always fun racing side by side with him. 5: Miles Tyson. Any time he jumps into any of his cars, he is always a threat for the win.

Racing weekly at Sunset Speedway, Nick Tooley inched closer to securing his first career feature checkered flag with five top-five’s and nine top-10’s, highlighted by a runner-up on August 27.

2023 Goals: To travel around and try and get as many wins as we can!
Drivers to Watch: Ryan Dyson, we have done allot of work upgrading his car over the winter, we have made allot of changes to make the car better! Lane Zardo is always a contender.
