It appeared that the 2020 Ontario Short Track season would be lost due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus. However, race track management and series officials worked with all levels of government to make events possible.

Arrangements made for the very popular Street Stock division to compete as a support race at three rounds of the APC United Late Model Series. Contests would be conducted at Sauble Speedway, Sunset Speedway, with the finale taking place at Jukasa Motor Speedway.

The Super Stock category includes a variety of makes and models from the ‘60s to the current year. The rules used in the class allow some suspension modifications and changes to the bodies. Most Street 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 ‘stepping stone’ for those drivers who aspire to compete in the Pro Late Model category.

Prior to the Sunset Speedway event, an agreement was reached for McColl Racing Enterprises to partner with the United Racing Series to become the presenting sponsor of the Super Stock division.

The penultimate round of the 2020 McColl Racing Enterprises Super Stock Series was held at Sunset Speedway. Drivers would compete on the 0.333-mile banked oval for forty-laps.

A field of twenty-four competitors takes the green flag for the penultimate round of the McColl Racing Enterprises Super Stock Series. On the pole and leading into corner one is the No. 29 Humberview Parts sponsored Chevrolet Camaro of Paul Pepper. Sharing the outside of the front row with Pepper is the No. 36 Ford Mustang with backing from Bester Forest Products and driven by Ken Grubb.
Ryan Semple wasn’t entered in the season opener at Sauble Speedway, but he was on form in round two at Sunset Speedway. In qualifying, Semple recorded the fastest time in the No. 64 ZOLO / Ryan’s Landscaping Chevrolet Camaro. After the inverted start, he was gridded in the seventh position. Semple moved to the front during the forty-lap contest and on lap-30, he passed Ken Grubb for the top spot and the victory.
The No. 36 Ford Mustang was driven by Ken Grubb. Grubb won an event earlier in the year at Flamboro Speedway and was quick in round one of the McColl Racing Enterprises Super Stock Series at Sauble Speedway. He was sixth fastest in qualifying and started on the outside of the front. Grubb was leading late in the contest when a ‘bump and run’ allowed Ryan Semple to pass. He was relegated to a runner-up finish.
Another driver that had an impressive start to the McColl Racing Enterprises Super Stock Series was Frank Davey. Competing in the No. 49 Chevrolet, with support from Auto Trim of Barrie and Shepherd Trucking, he finished third in the first race of the championship. Davey started the contest in sixth place and captured another third. Unfortunately, he failed the post-race tech inspection due to a non-compliant transmission.
Earning a hard-fought victory in the opening round of the McColl Racing Enterprises Super Stock Series at Sauble Speedway was Todd Davenport. At Sunset Speedway, the points leader was the tenth fastest qualifier – he the first driver in the 16-second range. Davenport was unable to catch the front-runners during the race and finished seventh in the No. 30 HWY 400 Transmission sponsored Chevrolet Camaro.
The driver of the No. 17 Wayfreight Pontiac Grand Prix, Gerrit Tiemersma, was also entered in round one of the McColl Racing Enterprises Super Stock Series. At Sauble Speedway, Tiemersma started third and finished fourth. He delivered a similar performance at Sunset. Tiemersma was fifth fastest during the qualifying session and after the inversion, he was gridded third. Tiemersma would capture another fourth-place finish.
Last year, in the Canadian Short Track Nationals at Jukasa Speedway, Trevor Collver finished an impressive third in the Super Stock divisions. Collver started on the outside of the front row in race one at Sauble Speedway, but was unable to match the pace of the leaders and finished sixth. Driving the No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro with Inventory Express backing, Collver qualified eighth and was in fifth-place at the checkered flag.
The top-three finishers for round two of the 2020 McColl Racing Enterprises Super Stock Series at Sunset Speedway. In the center is the winner, Ryan Semple. Standing on the left is the runner-up and new points leader, Ken Grubb. This was quite a feat as Grubb battled a brake issue through-out the contest. On the right and earning his second third-place finish of the season is Frank Davey.
