@OSCAARRacing •(December 9, 2015)- After kicking off the season on a disappointing note, Glenn Watson would solid through the rest of the eight races on the Dickies OSCAAR Outlaws Presented by London Recreational Racing schedule, posting no finishes worse than ninth. As a result, he would finish fourth in the season-ending standings.
As noted, the season didn’t start as Watson would’ve hoped, blowing a motor in the season opening feature, while running within the top-five looking to be one of the drivers to watch.
From there on, there were few things that could slow down the past series champion. He would return to Sunset Speedway the following month, finishing fifth in the 50-lap feature. He would then back it up with a fourth at Delaware Speedway and a fifth at Peterborough Speedway in the two races that followed.
He would then return back to Sunset Speedway in August, set for another strong run. The driver of the No. 22 Line-X Barrie, National Fleet Care, Rival Office Solutions, Klotz Canada, Williamson GM Uxbridge, Barrie Auto Auction, Classic Towing & Storage, Top Shops Auto Body Supply and Race2Way.ca SLM would post his strongest finish of the year, finishing third. It wasn’t an easy, quick route to the checkered flag, as Watson would battle side-by-side with J.R. Fitzpatrick throughout the entire middle portion of the event, putting on one of the best battles of the entire OSCAAR season.
He would then complete the month of August on a solid note, finishing fifth at Flamboro Speedway.
Unfortunately, the last three races of the schedule in September and October didn’t go as well as Watson was probably hoping for. He would finish seventh at Peterborough in September after mid-race contact, followed by a seventh at Sunset Speedway a couple weeks later. He would then complete the season in October at Peterboorugh, finishing ninth after a late-race spin.
With a solid season in the rearview, many are hoping to witness a return trip to victory lane by the veteran. Given the success of 2015, it’s very likely that it will come to fruition in 2016.
