OSHAWA, ON (August 12, 2018)- During its 2018 schedule, the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series powered by Torque Builders Inc. has been focused on building its brand and introducing people to the tour and its exciting events. With just a few shows remaining on the schedule, officials are looking forward to seeing how the late season events play out.
“It has been a great year and we’ve had a chance to make some new friends and fans during this year’s tour,” said Rick Warnes, who along with Randy Hollingsworth and Bill Pickford make up the OMRS group of officials. “Our car counts have been strong, with a dozen or more teams scoring points in at least one main event and only a single rainout on the calendar.”
Warnes pointed to the arrival of former Peterborough Speedway Thunder Car/Super Stock track champion Anthony DiBello as one of the strengths this year; along with Bob Franks and Craig Scott joining the tour and the return of former series regular Josh Gruntz. In addition to the annual events at Peterborough and Flamborough Speedways, the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series also added Sauble Speedway to this year’s agenda and has a first-ever trip to Delaware Speedway planned for Saturday, August 18th.
“Getting to some different areas is a great thing for all involved; the drivers, sponsors and especially the series,” said Rick Warnes. “There’s no telling where the next group of new drivers might be coming from, so we need to put out the welcome mat and be willing to open the door to as many people as possible.”
