Ontario Modifieds Racing Series Returns to Peterborough Speedway
By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media
After a layoff of just over a month, the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series - powered by Torque Builders Inc. will return to the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City Saturday, July 12th. It'll be the 3rd of 4 appearances for 2014 at Peterborough Speedway for the series dedicated to preserving competitive and affordable open wheel modified racing created for racers, by racers.
After this year's 3 events to date, Robert Warnes - the series' most recent main event winner - leads the point standings by a slim 4 markers over Alex Lees, with Chad Strawn, Bill Burrows and Bill Pickford rounding-out the top drivers in the rundown. With 8 shows on this year's schedule - shared between Peterborough and Flamboro Speedways, the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series has been averaging close to 15 cars for each outing and provided fans with some exciting wheel-to-wheel action. Series officials are looking forward to another run on one of the season's adopted homes on Canada's Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval.
"Peterborough Speedway can be a challenging layout, but once you hit on a set-up that works, it's a really fun place to race," said Randy Hollingsworth. He knows what he's talking about. His tutelage has helped his 14 year-old granddaughter Willow Barberstock - an OMRS development series driver - win a pair of feature events in the track's entry-level 4Fun division.
Three different drivers - Strawn, Alex Lees and Rob Warnes - have won feature events during the OMRS shows and series officials would love to see a 4th take the checkered flag Saturday, July 12th at Peterborough Speedway.
