@OSCAARRacing • @PtboSpeedway • (September 2, 2015)- The summer of 2015 may be quickly coming to an end. The temperatures are starting to drop but the racing for the OUTLAWS is just starting to heat up.
Labour day weekend has become a tradition at Peterborough Speedway as they crown all their local divisions 2015 Champions, and the OUTLAWS get one last chance to tune up before their season ending event the Autumn Colours Classic.
Coming into the seventh event of the season the #17 of Kevin Cornelius has a perfect record going in feature competition. Never in OSCAAR history has a driver gone undefeated and with three events left to go, the question on everyone’s mind will Kevin and his team become the first to accomplish this feat.
In order to do accomplish this, the #17 is going to have to fend off the challenges of his fellow Outlaw drivers. For the past two events the #84 of JR Fitzpatrick has let the #17 team know that he is ready to end their streak. Fans will also want to remember back to the earlier event in 2015 at Peterborough Speedway when the #84 had the dominate car only to lose by a half a car length at the end of the race.
Glenn Watson and his #22 team have also shown the competition that he is ready to return to victory lane and would love nothing better than the be the one that ends the #17 streak of wins. Rookie Shawn Grosman has put together a solid year while competing for the first time ever on the OUTLAW series. Shawn might have an ace up his sleeve as his crew chief Ryan Kimball has many years racing experience at Peterborough Speedway and that might be just what the team needs to get that first feature win.
Another thing the fans will want to keep an eye on and that is the points race. Currently second through fourth place is separated by a mere 4 points. With one point awarded per position the teams of Fitpatrick, Watson and Grosman will be gunning for every position they can on the track.
Cory Jones comes into this event in 5th place and will be letting the drivers ahead of him in points, one slip and he is going to be there to take advantage of the situation. Kelly Balson always has Peterborough Speedway circled on his calendar, unfortunately the team suffered motor issues last week and at this time it is not known if the B10 will be in competition this weekend. One thing is for sure Kelly and his team are dedicated racer and if they can be there in front of their home town fans they will do everything possible to make it happen.
Shawn Chenoweth returned to action last week at Flamboro Speedway and was rewarded with a third place finish in the feature event. Shawn is no stranger to Peterborough Speedway with victories in other divisions, and would love nothing more than to park the #89c in victory lane Saturday night.
Fans of the 1/3 mile Peterborough Speedway will want to ensure they are there to celebrate the home town 2015 Champions and enjoy the fastest cars in Canada “The OUTLAWS”
Pit gates open at 1:00pm with the first green flag of the night set to wave at 5:00pm
