The 2014 schedule for the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series, powered by Torque Builders Inc. is about to come to a close and the popular open-wheeled tour will wrap things up for the season with a double-header – Friday and Saturday, October 3 and – as part of the Octoberfest Classic at Flamboro Speedway.
This year's events have been a level playing field, with strong competition and only one two-time feature event winner after five shows.
Powering and preserving affordable open wheel modified racing for racers by racers, OMRS teams are dedicated to working together to give the fans the best possible show. Spokesperson and competitor Randy Hollingsworth says that point was most evident during the Saturday, September 6 show at Flamboro Speedway.
"A failure with a component in the right front corner of the car caused the No. 61 machine – driven by Bill Pickford – to hit the retaining wall at nearly full speed, just as the field was completing the first lap of the qualifying heat," said Hollingsworth.
"The damaged car was towed to the pits and the rest of us finished the race. It wasn't long before the car was being swarmed by crew members from other teams and offers of parts. While we all originally thought it was too damaged to continue, Pickford was able to make it back out for the feature and while he wasn't in contention for the win, fans saw a full field of OMRS teams in action."
Friday, October 3- pit gates open at 3 pm, with racing at 6 pm. The Ontario Modifieds Racing Series is scheduled to run their qualifying heats and a 25-lap main event.
Saturday, October 4 pit gates open at 9 am and racing at 3 pm. OMRS teams are on the agenda for a last chance qualifying event and another 25-lap feature.
