In the August 17th edition of Spencer Lewis’ Short Track Notebook, we catch up with Andrew Gresel after his 3rd straight victory in OSCAAR Super Late Model competition, interview Anthony Dibello about his down-to-the-wire points race at Peterborough Speedway, visit with Sunset Speedway Ltd. Late Model regular Thayne Hallyburton and ask ‘The Instant Classic’ Andy Kamrath about his back-to-back Mini Stock Nationals wins.
Super Late Model heavyweight Andrew Gresel earned in his 3rd straight checkered flag in Round 8 of the OSCAAR Tour at Kawartha Speedway on August 10th. The Hepworth, ON driver further tightened his grip on the tour’s championship point lead, after a highlight reel battle with 4-time tour champion Glenn Watson. We caught up with Gresel post-race and asked him about his recent hot streak, his race with Watson and his plans for the rest of the 2014 campaign.
