Following an action packed couple of weeks at Flamboro Speedway, the OSCAAR Modifieds are set for their fifth race of the season as they head to Delaware Speedway on Friday night. It’s a night that is certain to thrill fans as they will join the OSCAAR Outlaw Super Late Models in attendance.

Gary Elliott enters this weekend with momentum on his side following a pair of top-six finishes. Elliott has done well at Delaware Speedway in the past, finishing ninth in 2014 to go with a fifth place finish last fall. However, the spring saw him run into mechanical issues en route to a DNF.

The other Gary hopes to carry the recent momentum into this weekend following a pair of wins. Like most tracks on the tour, he has done well at Delaware in the past, posting a top-five finish in each of his seven previous starts, including a pair of victories.

John Harper is hoping for a solid run this weekend after having a start to the season. He has also performed well at Delaware, scoring an eighth in 2013 to go with a fourth place finish last year.

Dan Price will not be in attendance this weekend to drive his modified. Instead, it’ll be super late model driver Kelly Balson behind the wheel of the No. 09 Modified looking for glory.

Cory Horner enters this weekend with momentum after a fourth place finish a couple weeks ago. He has been solid at Delaware in the past, posting finishes of 12th and seventh last year to go with an eighth this year

A.J. Emms has always been quick as Delaware. Running in the top-five in July of last year, he got spun while running third. He then came back in September to post a third place finish, followed by a fourth in June. He enters this weekend with momentum following a third at Flamboro.

Luke Gignac hopes to keep his early season momentum going after posting a runner-up finish in the most recent race. He has one previous start at Delaware, finishing seventh.

Rob Divenanzo hopes to have a strong run in his second Delaware Speedway start after failing to finish in June. He is coming off of a seventh place finish at Flamboro.

After posting a DNF to start the year, Brian McLean came back with a runner-up finish in June, though posted a 12th place finish earlier this month. He will look to get back on track this weekend at Delaware Speedway where he has only one top-five in seven starts.

Ryan Dick also hopes to be in attendance as well, hoping to snatch his first Delaware Speedway top-five finish following a pair of top-nine finishes in the last two races.

Chris Milwain enters this weekend with momentum as he has finished third and eighth in his last two starts. Dale Reinhart is in the same boat, entering with a pair of ninth place finishes.

With Delaware Speedway, you always get a couple faces whom don’t follow the tour on a regular basis. Jeff Showler was the man in June at Delaware Speedway, scoring the win in his first career modified start. Meanwhile, Delaware Speedway veteran Justin Demelo finished second with Jay Christie fifth. These three will be looking to shake up the top-five once again on Friday.
