Ontario Modifieds Racing Series Goes Full Speed Ahead With an Active 2015 Schedule


Ontario Modifieds Racing Series Goes Full Speed Ahead With an Active 2015 Schedule

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media


From humble beginnings, with a handful of annual events at the former Mosport/Canadian Tire Motorsport Park Speedway oval, the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series – powered by Torque Builders Inc. – has become one of the sport's talked about tours.


After a highly competitive campaign that saw only 1 repeat winner in 6 of 8 scheduled 2014 main events, OMRS officials have released an agenda for this season that will see the popular series return to Peterborough and Flamboro Speedways for a combined 11 shows in 2015. The first appearance on the schedule is the Modified Spring Shakedown Invitational – Saturday, May 2nd – at Flamboro. Bill Pickford – who along with Rick Warnes and Randy Hollingsworth make-up the series officials – says releasing the calendar now will give drivers and teams the opportunity to get things ready with sponsorship and marketing plans for the new year.


"Since our first ever green flag 5 years ago at Mosport, we've always looked to keep things affordable for the racers," said Pickford. "Rick, Randy and I are out there for every race and we know that a little extra financial assistance for things like tires and fuel can make it easier for everyone. We're expecting about a handful of new teams and several first year runners join the fold this year, so we want to help everyone get their ducks in a row."


Pickford continued by saying that after some revisions, the proposed schedule is now confirmed. Management teams at both venues were very accommodating with programs that will run from May to October and make dates available for as many different series and divisions as possible.


"One date we're thrilled to confirm is the return of the 'Test a Mod Day' Saturday, June 13th – between 10:00 and 2:00 – prior to the year's second event at Peterborough Speedway," said Pickford. "J.P. Josiasse, Dave Sikma and the team were wonderful hosts last year and gave us the opportunity to put some drivers at the controls of an open-wheeled machine for the very first time. The development program we have with Peterborough Speedway opens the door for some new drivers to see what our series is all about and is a win-win situation for everyone." 


Fans can learn about this year's OMRS calendar during the Motorama show – Friday, Saturday and Sunday – March 13th to 15th at the International Centre.
