On the first Saturday in October, Flamboro Speedway held its annual Frostoberfest, which ended the season of regular racing.
A payout of over $34,000 attracted strong fields for the Pure Stock, Mini Stock, Super Stock and Late Model divisions.
With the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, Flamboro track management had to enforce pandemic protocols and limit fan attendance, but they succeeded in delivering an exciting event.
The Super Stock category includes a variety of makes and models for the ‘60s to the current year. The rules used in the class allow some suspension modifications and changes to the bodies. Most Super Stock cars retain the original steel bodies with plastic noses and fiberglass hoods. They are powered by a modified small-block engine or crate motors from General Motors and Ford. The division serves as a ‘stepping stone’ for those drivers who aspire to compete in the Pro Late Model category.
The Frostoberfest Super Stock race was a fifty-lap contest around the 1/3-mile semi-banked asphalt oval. The total purse was $6,000, with the winner collecting a cheque for $1,200.
|The Super Stock field prepares to take the Starter’s flag for the 2020 edition of Frostoberfest at Flamboro Speedway. On the pole is the No. 36 Bester Forest Products Ford Mustang of Ken Grubb. Sharing the front row with Grubb is Andy Kamrath in the No. 71 Caldecott sponsored Chevrolet Camaro. Immediately behind the leaders are the Ford Mustang of Roy Wilke and Paul Pepper in a Chevrolet Camaro.|
|A little bit of luck and being in the right place at the right time resulted in Steve Cashmore capturing the Super Stock victory at Frostoberfest. Cashmore, driving the No. 27C Chevrolet Camaro, qualified eighth fastest. On the lap-34 restart, he was in third place but got ‘freight trained’ and fell to sixth. On the next circuit, a backmarker dropped oil on the track, causing the leaders to crash. Cashmore inherited first place and the win.|
|Finishing in the runner-up spot at Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest was Paul Pepper. Pepper was another beneficiary of the corner one incident that eliminated the front runners. During the time-trials, he recorded the fourth-fastest time in the No. 29 Chevrolet Camaro. After the red flag restart, Pepper was in third place but passed Paul Boundy for second on lap-39. He was unable to catch the leader, Steve Cashmore.|
|Despite being involved in several incidents during the fifty-lap Super Stock event at Flamboro Speedway, Justin Collison managed to capture a third-place finish. Collison driving the No. 12 London Recreational Racing sponsored Chevrolet Camaro, was gridded tenth for the contest’s start. He avoided the incident, which resulted in the race stoppage and a pass late in the event resulted in him being the final podium finisher.|
|Andy Kamrath missed starting on the pole by 0.015-seconds; however, he was the class of the field until late in the event. Kamrath drove Cory McAllister’s No. 71 Chevrolet Camaro and shot into the lead on every re-start. On lap-36, Tim Burke lost his driveshaft in turn one and dropped gear oil on the track. Kamrath, along with Ken Grubb, Andrew Ferreira and Anthony DiBello crashed and were eliminated from the race.|
|The driver of the No. 36 Bester Forest Products sponsored Ford Mustang, Ken Grubb, won a Super Stock race earlier in the season at Flamboro Speedway. At the Frostoberfest contest, Grubb put the Mustang on the pole with a time of 16.345-seconds. He was unable to hold off the second- fastest qualifier, Andy Kamrath and chased him for much of the race. He was one of the four drivers eliminated by the oil on lap-36.|
|The new crowned APC United Late Model Series champion, Jo Lawrence, was at Flamboro Speedway for Frostoberfest. He competed in the Late Model and Super Stock divisions. In the Super Stock contest, he piloted the No. 28L Oakside Chemicals Limited sponsored Ford Mustang, which is usually driven by Kris Lawrence. Lawrence started in the nineteenth position and advanced twelve places to finish seventh.|
|The winner of the 2020 Super Stock contest at Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest weekend, Steve Cashmore, celebrates his victory. In a previous outing at Jukasa Motor Speedway, Cashmore suffered a flat tire early in the race and finished a lowly twentieth. His luck changed at Flamboro and he earned a $1,600 payday for his efforts.|
