HEPWORTH, ON- Former Sauble Speedway regular Andrew Gresel is ready to lead the OSCAAR Super Late Model tour into Round 6 of competition on July 26th. The Sauble Falls Racing Team representative will unload as the tour’s current point leader, and hopes that a home track advantage will help distance himself from his closest pursuers.
“It’s always nice to come home”, smiles Gresel. “We’re lucky enough to travel across the province with the tour, but any time we get to race at Sauble it’s always special for the whole team”
“Our friends and sponsors don’t always get to follow us on tour, so it’s awesome to have a show in our backyard, knowing we’ll have a tonne of people cheering us on”
Gresel will enter July 26th undefeated in OSCAAR competition at Sauble, having won his debut in 2013.
“I definitely feel like I have a home track advantage at Sauble”, says the second-generation star. “I’ve logged thousands of laps here, from the time I was a little kid, and every single one of them has helped me learn something”
“This place is not easy to get ahold of, it’s tough to plan for. You really just have to learn by doing”
The Hepworth, ON hotshoe will hope to continue what’s been a stellar season thus far, as he chases his first career tour championship.
“We’ve had an awesome season so far. We’re leading the points, we’ve got a win under our belt and we haven’t finished a race outside of the top-5. That’s awesome. Heading into Sauble, we just want to keep things rolling. If we could walk out with our second win, we’ll be on top of the world”
