For the third time this season, the OSCAAR Super Late Model will hit the high-banks of Sunset Speedway to try and tackle the 3/8 mile located in Innisfil, Ontario. The Super Lates were there in May for the season opener, followed by double 50 lappers in June for the Don Biederman Memorial.
Brandon Watson won the first Super Late Model race of the season at Sunset and has been consistent so far this year with his worst finish this year being fourth a couple weeks ago at Sauble Speedway. In the span of that consistency, Watson also picked up a feature win at Barrie in June followed by a third feature win at Sunset in June. Look for Watson to run upfront this weekend as he has in the past, considering he has won at Sunset in past years too in both a super late and an open late model.
Dwayne Baker won the Don Biederman Memorial at the end of June with a first and a third place finish in the pair of the features, as well as posting the quickest time in qualifying. Baker also finished in the top five at Sunset back in May. Look for Baker to run upfront as he challenges for his second win of the season as part of his part-time schedule this year.
Kevin Cornelius finished second in both Don Biederman Memorial features, followed by a second at Sauble Speedway. A past Sunset Speedway Limited Late Model Champion, Cornelius is looking for his first feature victory to expand his points lead in the rookie standings.
Fellow rookie Andrew Gresel picked up his first career feature victory at Sauble Speedway earlier this month and will look to build on that success at Sunset. In the pair of Biederman Memorial features, Gresel finished fourth and sixth after finding himself in some incidents along the way.
After blowing his motor at Sauble Speedway, Tyler Hawn has loaded the back-up motor in his super late model and will be in attendance at Sunset Speedway. Hawn has a pair of 11th and a ninth in the three features run at Sunset so far this year.
Jesse Kennedy has loaded his super late with a new power plant after running into some motor issues and will return this weekend after missing the Don Biederman Memorial and the race at Sauble Speedway.
After finishing a solid fifth at Sauble Speedway, Glenn Watson will look to return to victory lane this weekend at Sunset Speedway. The four-time OSCAAR Champion has won at Sunset before and knows his way around the track. He had a season-high finish of second in the first feature run at Sunset this year in May.
Mr. Consistancy Derrike Tiemersma will look to continue his consistency after finishing top five in each of the features so far this year.
If all goes according to plan with the race running on Saturday as scheduled, look for Roy Passer to be behind the wheel of the No. 27 Super Late Model as that team makes their third start of the season. J.R. Fitzpatrick drove that car at the Don Biederman Memorial, though didn’t find himself having the best of luck either night. However, if the Saturday show gets rained out and is ran on Sunday, look for Fitzpatrick to be behind the wheel as he will be back after running the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race in Quebec.
After finishing 12th and fifth in the pair of the features for the Don Biederman Memorial, Jeff Hanley will make his third OSCAAR Super Late Model Series start of the season. Hanley has won at Sunset in the past, winning the Velocity 250 feature last season.
Rookie Sean Cronan will try to continue and build some momentum after a pair of top 10 finishes in his last two features.
Lloyd Ritchie showed a lot of promise at Sauble Speedway last weekend when he won both of his heats and finished sixth in the feature. Can the driver of the No. 62 Super Late Model keep the momentum going?
After missing the show at Sauble Speedway, Jim Bowman will be in attendance this weekend at Sunset Speedway.
Making his first career OSCAAR start weekend will be Corey Jones as the Canadian Vintage Modified driver looks to make a jump up in the ranks.
If mother nature co-operates, the OSCAAR Super Late Models will be racing at Sunset Speedway on Saturday night with the show getting underway at 6:30pm. There is an autograph session before the racing starts.
If mother nature decides to pour some rain on Saturday, do not fear. OSCAAR and Sunset Speedawy have already talked and decided that if it rains Saturday, they will run on Sunday. The Sunday show would start 3pm EST.
