@OSCAARRacing • Solid and consistency on a weekly basis over the course of the 2015 season was the key for Roy Passer en route to finishing eighth in the Dickies OSCAAR Outlaws Presented by London Recreational Racing points standings.
Kicking off the year at Sunset Speedway with the season opener, Passer would have a solid run throughout the entire 50-lap feature en route to a 10th place finish. He would return to Sunset the next month in hopes of a stronger run, but would allow J.R. Fitzpatrick to drive the super late in the feature as a result of Fitzpatrick’s issues earlier in the night.
Unfortunately, Passer’s season would take a hit when the series went on the road to Delaware Speedway in July, as he would be involved in a hard crash mid-feature. The crash would result in Passer missing the next series event at Peterborough Speedway.
Passer would make his return to the tour at Sunset Speedway at the end of the August, posting a solid 11th place finish. He would then head to Flamboro Speedway, posting another top-10 finish with a ninth place finish.
Arguably, the back end of the season was the strongest for the driver of the No. 27 J.R. Motorsports, Bert Transmissions, Equipment Express, Jenco Equipment and Cambridge Ridging SLM. Passer would have his two best finishes of the season, along with a checkered flag moment.
The last three race stretch of the season would kick off at Peterborough Speedway at the beginning of September. Passer would run strong throughout the entire 50-lap feature, posting his best finish of the season with a fourth. He would then head to Sunset Speedway, posting a top-10 finish in the feature. Though beyond that, he would score the victory in one of his qualifying heats.
Passer would then complete the season with a sixth place finish in the Autumn Colours Classic at Peterborough Speedway.
Throughout the season, Passer continued to get stronger on a weekly basis, posting stronger finishes in the later half than the first half. If early indications of 2016 are any sort of preview, Passer could be a driver to watch next season.
