SHAKESPEARE, ON- Super Late Model freshman Corey Jones will be back in action with the OSCAAR tour this Sunday, September 28th at Sunset Speedway. The former Canadian Vintage Modified standout will enter his first career ‘Velocity 250’, with hopes of earning his first top-5 finish with the tour.
“This is one of the events that I’ve looked forward to all season”, explains Jones. “Sunset Speedway has an atmosphere that’s unlike any other speedway. When you step through the pit gates there, every race just feels like the most important one you’ve ever ran”
“I’ve been to a few Velocity weekends as a spectator, and I’ve been there with the Hobby car, but this will be my first time racing it in a Super Late Model”, continues Jones. “The tour always gets an incredibly healthy car count for this show, which means nailing down a good qualifying run is going to be important”
‘Twinkle Toes’ has impressed in his first year with the OSCAAR Super Late Models, accumulating 3 top-10s in his first 7 starts as a full-timer on the tour.
“There’s certainly room for improvement, but I think we’ve found a lot of speed in this car as the season’s wore on”, says Jones. “We came into this endeavor with limited experience with this style of car, so every week has helped us learn a little more”
This weekend’s Velocity 250 will mark Jones’ first time back at Sunset since nearly destroying his No. 82 Castle Building Centres/RBC Chevrolet at the Bruce Gowland Memorial in late August.
“I’m looking forward to getting a little bit of redemption this weekend”, admits Jones. “Sunset hasn’t been our strongest track, and I think there’s a lot we can do to bring home a decent run this weekend. It’s a racey track, it’s a tonne of fun competing there, we just need to sort our program out and find a setup that works for us”
