A.J. Emms Suffers Mechanical Failure at Flamboro Speedway

Unfortunately after showing speed in practice, things didn’t pan out how A.J. Emms would’ve hoped on Saturday night at Flamboro Speedway as a mechanical failure took him out of contention.

Starting fifth in the first of two 20-lap features, Emms was set to make up some ground, passing Cory Horner to move up into fourth on Lap 4. Unfortunately, Emms’ strong run came to an end on Lap 7 as he pulled off the track with an apparent mechanical problem.

Knowing the team had an issue, Emms started the second two-lap feature, however pulled off in the opening laps.

Emms will now focus his attention to Delaware Speedway, where the next OSCAAR Modified event takes place Friday August 19. After scoring a top-five finish on the half-mile earlier this year, the team hopes to have all the issues aside for a strong run.

Emms and team thank Sunshine Super Wash – Orillia, Davenport Subaru, Creecher’s Design, Klotz Canada, Artech Promotional Wear – Orillia, Bromley Automotive, and TSS Top Shops – Barrie for the support.
