(June 18, 2019)- With mother nature dealing her hand and cancelling the event at Delaware Speedway, it’s no secret that all three OSCAAR divisions are excited to get to Sunset Speedway, all in action on Saturday, June 29 as part of Canada Day weekend.

The current year-long standings sees a tie between three drivers who are vying for their first career championship following the 40-lap feature at Jukasa Motor Speedway presented by Queenston Chevrolet and Bourque Transmission.

Kelly Balson, Chad Strawn, and John Harper currently sit on top of the standings after those three entries shared the podium at Jukasa Motor Speedway with Harper picking up the victory. Notably, Balson had past OSCAAR Super Late Model Champion J.R. Fitzpatrick fill in behind the wheel of his No. b10 modified for Jukasa.

The battle is still wide open for the championship, though, with Jason Keen A.J. Emms, Norman Newman, and Shawn Chenoweth all within striking distance, with only 11 points separating the top-four in points.

Luke Gignac sits sixth in points, followed by Brad Pearsall, Anthony DiBello, Jase Cornell, and Gary Elliott.

Alternatively, Newman leads DiBello by just a single point in the MavTV Canada Rookie of the Year standings following the first feature of the season. Bryan Batty and Jim Bowman round out the rookie points.

Jukasa Motor Speedway feature winner Jerry Broom currently leads two-time and defending champion Tyler Hawn by a single point following the 25-lap feature presented by Hanover Holidays and Matteo’s Pizza & Café.

Sunset Speedway heat winner Dalen Martin sits third in points, followed by Steve Book and Nick Clarke. The top-five are within 12 points of each other, meaning it’s still anybody’s title to win.

Jeremy McLean sits sixth, followed by Leroy Robinson, Bradley Holt, Rodney Rutherford, and Brandon Robertson.

Alternatively, Rutherford leads Robertson by a single point in the Ohsweken Speedway Rookie of the Year standings, following the first feature of the season. Dalen Martin, Leroy Robinson, Robert Robinson, and Greg Belyea round out the rookie points.

It appears as though mother nature has won the battle thus far for the Pro Sprints as they have been unable to get either of their scheduled features to date ran. OSCAAR has still credited the drivers, with those in attendance before the skies opened up receiving ‘show-up’ points.

Daniel Hawn, Jaden Riddell, James Stanley, Ryan Battilana, Kevin Taylor, Gary Triska, and Dylan Little each have 150 points to their credit. Rob Summers, Tyler Cullen, and Larry Westwood were given 50 points.

With no features ran to date, nobody has earned points towards the Hinkley Lighting Rookie of the Year Award.

The Living Lighting, Scott Reinhart Trailer Sales Ltd. OSCAAR Pro Sprints will be back in action on June 29 at Sunset Speedway with their 25-lap feature presented by TXM Motorsports and Wild Wing of Woodbridge.

OSCAAR’s 2019 racing season is supported by several dedicated partners including Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC, Knightworks Design, Living Lighting Canada, Scott Reinhart Trailer Sales Ltd., American Racer, and Grisdale Race Products.
