Ontario Modifieds Racing Series Unveils a Tentative 2021 Schedule

(MARCH 4, 2021)- It’s a simple concept that’s easy to understand. Racers just want to race.

That’s what made things so tough for OMRS drivers and teams. Despite the best intentions of tour officials, the 2020 schedule fell victim to government restrictions caused by the COVID-19 Coronavirus and was cancelled before anyone had even turned a lap on the track. With an optimistic look to the future, a tentative calendar of events has been released that could see the popular series – presented by GEN-3 Electrical – run seven shows.

“Everyone has their fingers crossed and we’re hoping things will head in a different direction for 2021,” said Ontario Modifieds Racing Series spokesperson Rick Warnes. “Early indications point to about a handful of new teams joining the fold and even though it has been more than a year since he celebrated clinching the title, each driver in the field has their sights set on unseating reigning champion John Baker Jr.”

Subject to COVID safety guidelines in place at the host venues, this year’s agenda will get rolling with a pair of dates – Saturday, May 29th and Saturday, June 19th – at Peterborough Speedway. Action shifts to Flamboro Speedway Saturday, July 3rd. While all OMRS shows pay the same number of team points toward the overall title, Warnes says the highlight of the schedule will be the inaugural running of the Bill Pickford Memorial – Saturday, August 14th – at Peterborough.

“A good friend of the sport and strong ambassador for the series, Bill passed away toward the end of the 2019 season,” explained Rick Warnes. “At the year’s awards celebration, we announced plans for an event to honour Bill’s memory and his dedication to our brand, as well as stock car racing across the province. Taking the checkered flag in this prestigious race is sure to become an annual badge of honour for OMRS drivers.”
