Following a solid show at Peterborough Speedway, the OSCAAR Pro Midgets will join the other three divisions this weekend at Flamboro Speedway.

Inaugural Pro Midget feature winner Ted Greenwood enters this weekend confident following three wins and five top-two finishes starting the season.

‘Wild’ Willy Northcott has been fast all four races, posting four podium finishes. He ran into motor issues at Peterborough, but will look to bounce back strong this weekend.

Wally Wilson will make his fifth career start, hoping to build upon last week’s fifth place finish.

Glen Blaker will hope to have a strong run this weekend after finishing eighth and fifth in his first two career starts.

Canadian Vintage Modified regular Cassidy March struggled in his debut with the series, however came back strong at Grand Bend with a runner-up finish.

Coming off a fourth earlier this month, the No. 37 team hopes to make it two wins on the season to go along with a win at Flamboro earlier this year. However, there will be a new driver behind the wheel as Jesse Costa will be, rather than Shawn Paul.

Jack Ackworth had one of the strongest debuts a couple weeks ago, finishing third at Flamboro Speedway. He’ll look to improve a couple spots on Saturday.

Jordan Hanna had one of the strongest debuts at Flamboro Speedway, running in the top-five till a brake fire after winning one of the qualifying heats. It’ll be interesting to see how he makes out this weekend.

OSCAAR Midget regular Brian MacDonald made his Pro Midget debut at Peterborough, finishing a third. He’ll look to score his first series victory this weekend.

Summers Racing debuted at Peterborough Speedway, with Kelly Summers picking up the victory. Now Katherine and Rob Summer will both look to repeat her success this weekend.

After putting in time building the car, Larry Westwood is also set to make his series debut this weekend.
