(March 24, 2022)- After dealing with the COVID-19 Pandemic restrictions over the past two seasons, officials with the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series presented by GEN-3 Electrical are pleased to announce a return to action with its 2022 schedule. OMRS spokesperson Rick Warnes says it will be great to see everyone back at the track.
“We weren’t able to hold a driver’s meeting again this year so we sent a mass email message to our teams to bring everyone up-to-date,” said Warnes. “There will be some minor rule changes and with the supply of tire casings, Towel City will be providing recap tires on American Racer casings, as our series remains committed to offering everyone the same competitive, cost-effective racing we have since our inception in 2010.”
Warnes also pointed-out that the 2022 schedule will consist of eight events, with six held at the tour’s home base of Peterborough Speedway and a pair of dates at Flamboro Speedway. Officials are also happy to confirm Saturday, August 20th as the date for the inaugural running of the special OMRS memorial event to pay tribute to long-time competitor and former series official Bill Pickford.
“I think everyone associated with this club is excited about getting the new season underway,” Rick Warnes explained. “We ran a few races at Peterborough last year but haven’t crowned a series champion since 2019 when John Baker Jr. took the honours. These teams put their heart and soul into everything they do on the track and their efforts need to be recognised.”
