(July 31, 2017)- After a short break, its time for the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series powered by Torque Builders Inc. to head back into battle. On Saturday, August 5, the popular open wheeled tour will tackle the venerable Flamboro Speedway, near Hamilton, Ontario.
After establishing an impressive mark of having five first-time main event winners in its first handful of 2017 shows, the series seen repeat victors in its most recent pair of events. Bill Pickford, who along with Rick Warnes and Randy Hollingsworth make-up the team of OMRS officials, says its already been a great year for the drivers and teams who run with the group.
“We’ve had a strong season since our first event on the calendar,” Pickford said. “Even our annual Test-a-Mod day at Peterborough was a success and helped introduce about 10 drivers to our exciting brand of racing. Starting with this weekend’s show at Flamboro, we have about a handful of events remaining on the schedule, but things have no sign of slowing down.”
Pickford says there are 13 drivers registered for this year’s point chase, with the top seven in the standings separated by just 70 points. Parity has been a trademark of the tour since the inception of the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series and the 2017 schedule has been no exception. The series mission statement of providing a competitive, affordable racing series for racers, by racers has drawn new faces to the group, year after year.
“It would be impossible to predict whether there will be another first-time winner, or if someone might pick-up their second; or even third main event victory of the year,” said Pickford. “The only thing that is know for sure is that the fans will see a great show when the series returns to Flamboro, Saturday, August 5th.
