Over the past 10 years in Ontario, we have witnessed some absolute amazing racing across the province, with a variety of stars young and old securing championships and checkered flags. But who has stood out the most?
Following a great season of competition across the province, everybody came together for the short track year-end playoffs. With each track hosting a big event, a lot of talent was showcased with the cream rising to the crop, as familiar faces found their way to victory lane. It also did not go as smoothly as warranted for everybody, though, as some drivers suffered bad luck along the way.
This past week, there were a couple more champions crowned with Tyler Seaboyer and Brian Wilson each enjoying their special moments at Sunset Speedway and Full Throttle Motor Speedway.
With the first Mini Stock champion of the 2019 season crowned – congratulations Nolan Gould at Peterborough Speedway, and the playoffs looming, it seems drivers are continuing to step up their game so they can perhaps be part of the conversation for the win during the season-ending events.
Five disqualifications, combined with seven different race winners made for an interesting week for the panel as they debated who should remain on the list. 14 drivers were discussed, but this is the Mini Stock Top-10 so four of those would miss the cut. So who made the cut, and did we get it right?
A combination of 12 different feature winners including an American, along with three different disqualifications certainly made the decisions for the panel of five difficult this past week.
With a lot of eyes on the mini stock division this week with the big invitational at Jukasa Motor Speedway, the panel was certainly feeling the pressure in ranking the top-10 competitors.
Although the panel mostly agreed on the 10 drivers that should be on this list, there were variations on how they should be ordered due to a variety of factors – competition, field size, and how each driver came across the result they got. So did we get it right this week?
Scott Mast, James Townsend, Samantha Shaw, Ryan Oosterholt, Karl Sault, and Brian WIlson. These were names that were discussed en route to putting together this week’s top-10 ranking after the past two weeks of competition. However, believe it or not, they are not among the final top-10. So who actually made the list?
Mother Nature once again played her hand as some tracks were unable to get in their feature events as scheduled. Still, the panel had a variety to choose from with two features ran at Flamboro Speedway, a single feature at Sunset Speedway, and a single feature at Peterborough Speedway.
