Whitby, ON- Planning and preparation are just two of the important keys any racer needs in their quest for a trip to Victory Lane. A few extra hours spent in the shop will always help enhance their race day performance. Veteran second generation campaigner Mike Beyore has shown he has the talent and experience to find his way to the Winner’s Circle.
Even though it’s been almost a month since his last start – Saturday, August 30 at Peterborough Speedway – the Whitby Warrior and his crew have been burning the midnight oil to make sure their potent #54 OSCAAR Outlaw Super Late Model piece is ready to attack the remaining events on this year’s schedule. The first order of business is a 50 lapper – part of the Velocity Weekend – Sunday, September 28 at Sunset Speedway, followed by the Autumn Colours Classic – October 11/ 12 – at Peterborough Speedway. Beyore says his team has been working hard and looks forward to finishing the season on a high note.
“The late season events are always pressure-packed, but they can also be some of the most rewarding shows of the year,” said Beyore. “We bust our butts throughout the year and to close the schedule with some strong runs and maybe even a checkered flag makes every minute we’ve spent sweating over what might be seen as the smallest details worth the effort. It’s a real shot in the arm and helps build some momentum and a positive attitude heading into the next season.”
Heading back to Sunset Speedway, Beyore sits seventh in the OSCAAR point standings, but is less than 70 markers out of claiming a spot in the top five. He knows that everyone will be chasing the same dream, but Beyore knows that his team can meet any challenge that comes their way and will give him the best possible equipment for when the green flag waves.
“We’re all fired-up about the pair of shows that will close the season and the chance to gain an extra position or two in the points,” added Beyore. “This team has always worked incredibly well under pressure and when the car is right and racing luck works in our favour, there isn’t a better car in the entire OSCAAR Super Late Model field.”
Mike’s brother Max is currently second and the leading rookie on the OSCAAR Modified tour. He’ll run a 40 lap ‘A’ main at Sunset and make his first career Autumn Colours Classic start at Peterborough Speedway two weeks later.
Next on the schedule for the OSCAAR Super Late Models is a return to Sunset Speedway Sunday, September 28 before the 2014 season wraps-up at Peterborough Speedway for the Autumn Colours Classic, October 11/ 12.
