The planning has already begun for the 2016 season, and another page in the book was written today. The Ontario Stock Car Association of Asphalt Racers, simply known to race fans as OSCAAR, released their 2016 season schedule on Thursday, December 10 for competitors and fans to check out.
Set for their 26th season of competition, OSCAAR is offering a record $241,000 in posted award for drivers in all three divisions, across a total of 36 main events. The OSCAAR Outlaw Super Late Models will run 10 races, with the Modifieds running 14 and the Midgets running 15.
The new season will kick off at Flamboro Speedway on May 21 and 22 on the Victoria Day long weekend, with a pair of action-packed days. The Outlaw Super Laet Models will run a full program on May 21 including a 50-lap feature, while the Modifeds and Midget qualify on Saturday before returning on the Sunday for their features.
Flamboro made it’s return to the OSCAAR schedule last year, hosting a successful event at the end of August. The success of the event has resulted in Flamboro hosting four events for the 2016 season. One of those events is the Don Biederman Memorial, which will take place on August 6. A crown jewel event for all of the Super Late Model competitors, it is certainly a victory that all the drivers will be vying for.
As with previous seasons, each of the division champions will be crowned on Thanksgiving weekend in October as part of the Autumn Colours Classic at Peterborough Speedway, which runs across three days and features a multitude of different racing divisions. Peterborough will play a big part in the 2016 schedule, hosting each of the three divisions on multiple occasions. While the Classic is certainly the biggest race of the season, the Chase for the Colours event on July 30 will certainly mark an important date, as drivers try to finish in the top-two to start on the front row for the Classic.
Certainly between the May event at Flamboro and the October event at Peterborough, there will action for fans to take in across the province at a variety of race tracks, from the tight 1/4 mile of Full Throttle Motor Speedway and 1/5 mile of Grand Bend Speedway, to the wide space that Delaware’s half-mile oval and Sauble’s 1/4 mile oval.
No matter where fans take in the action, they will be delivered a show full of excitement.
