A new addition to the Ontario oval track scene is the Ontario Outlaw Super Late Model series.
At the end of the 2017 season, promoters from Peterborough Speedway (JP Josiasse), Sauble Speedway (Mark Dilley),
Jukasa Motor Speedway (Alex Nagy), Flamboro Speedway (John Casale) and Sunset Speedway (Brian Todish) met to organize and develop the championship.
Their aim is to grow Ontario’s fastest full body stock car shows by ensuring that the Super Late Models are prepared to a consistent set of rules,
there aren’t scheduling conflicts and that there are healthy purses to attract competitors.
The new championship kicks off in late May at Flamboro Speedway which is followed by an event at Jukasa Motor Speedway. The schedule heats up in July with races held Sunset Speedway, Sauble Speedway and the series second visit to Flamboro. In August, teams will make their first stop at Peterborough Speedway followed by their second event at Jukasa. The penultimate round will be held at Sunset and the finale will take place at Peterborough in early October.
The Ontario Outlaw Super Late Models are prepared to a minimal set of guidelines. Some of the requirements include a minimum wheelbase of 102-inches and ten-inch wide steel wheels. Carburetors are limited to 850-cfm (no fuel injection). There are a number of engine choices - crate engines must weigh no less than 2,625-lbs. and built motors have a minimum weight of 2,700-lbs. Cars are weighed with the driver and distribution must not exceed 60% on the left side.
The first round of the new Ontario Outlaw Super Late Model series was held a Flamboro Speedway. Flamboro is a 1/3-mile semi-banked asphalt oval that was constructed in 1962. Drivers would compete for seventy-five laps.
|An issue on the pace lap prevented competitors from receiving the Starter’s green flag. Defending APC champion, Brandon Watson’s Ford stopped and wouldn’t run. Track personnel were required to remove the car from the track and despite his team’s best efforts the Ford would not make the race. Watson retired before the seventy-five-lap contest began.|
|Ten competitors line-up in corner one for the start of the inaugural Ontario Outlaw Super Late Model event. Starting on the pole is the No. 71 Chevrolet Camaro of John Cadman. Cadman started in first place when the top-three qualifiers were inverted. Sharing the front row with Cadman is the No. 22 Chevrolet of last year’s OSCAAR Super Late Model champion and the fastest qualifier, Glenn Watson.|
|The race’s first caution period occurred on lap-19. While attempting to share same piece of asphalt, the No. 72 Chevrolet of Jordan Howse and John Cadman’s Camaro made contact. The damage to the cars was minimal and both competitors were able to continue unassisted.|
|Glenn Watson won the 2017 OSCAAR Super Late Model Championship. Along the way, Watson recorded – five feature wins, three heat wins, ten top-five and twelve top-ten finishes. At Flamboro Speedway, he started his campaign for another title by qualifying on the pole with a time of 14.739-seconds. After the race settled down, Watson was uncontested on his way to a round one victory.|
|Jordan Howse’s best time during qualifying was a lap of 14.928-seconds. Howse was gridded fourth for the start but moved into second place early in the contest. Despite contact on lap-19 with John Cadman and again on lap-35, he was able to continue. Howse was unable to match the pace set by the winner, Watson but he was able to secure a runner-up finish.|
|Finishing third in the season’s first event was Todd Campbell. During time trials, Campbell a Flamboro Speedway regular was the sixth quickest in the Campbell’s Sanitation sponsored Chevrolet. A consistent run and some misfortune for his fellow competitors allowed him to capture a third-place finish.|
|Looking like a ‘fish out of water’ was the No. 29X Chevrolet driven by Ryan Kimball. Kimball’s entry is prepared to Late Model class rules and competes in the APC United Late Model series. With the APC championship racing at Flamboro Speedway the following week it was an excellent opportunity for him to gain valuable track time. Kimball started and finished ninth.|

In the center with six-time Super Late Model championships is the winner of the series inaugural race, Glenn Watson. To Watson’s right is the 2017 Super Stock champion from Sunset Speedway and runner-up, Jordan Howse. On the right is the third-place finisher and Flamboro veteran, Todd Campbell.|
