Now in its thirty-second season, the Ontario Stock Car Association of Asphalt Racers (OSCAAR) is responsible for sanctioning two divisions: Modified and Hot Rod.

The Modified division, which receives backing from Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC, draws many competitors and features some exciting races. Due to COVID 19, the last couple of years have resulted in fewer races and limits on spectator attendance. In 2022, the Federal and Provincial governments have listed many of the restrictions, which means OSCAAR has a full calendar and will see the return of fans.

There are thirteen races on the 2022 OSCAAR Modified schedule.

  • May 21-22 - Sunset Speedway
  • June 18 - Sauble Speedway
  • June 25 - Sunset Speedway
  • July 1 - Delaware Speedway
  • July 2 - Delaware Speedway
  • July 23 - Sunset Speedway
  • July 30 - Peterborough Speedway
  • August 20 - Sauble Speedway
  • August 27 - Flamboro Speedway
  • September 17-18 - Sunset Speedway
  • September 24 - Delaware Speedway
  • October 1 - Flamboro Speedway
  • October 7-9 - Peterborough Speedway

The cars competing in this class are purpose-built open-wheel vehicles. The Modifieds use a steel tube frame chassis, which is no less than 1-3/4-inch outside diameter with 0.095-inch wall thickness. Bodies are made of sheet metal, with the driver’s compartment and engine bay covered. The cars may be any make or model, but they tend to have little to no resemblance to their road-going counterparts.

The engine option selected by the car owner determines the weight of the vehicle. A Modified using 350-horsepower Crate Engine is the lightest at 2,600 pounds and 2,775 pounds is required for a car powered by a Built Motor. Weight may be added or removed depending on the choice of transmission.

Many of the other rules governing the OSCAAR Modified class are for driver safety and to keep costs down.

The ninth round of the 2022 Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modified Series was held at Flamboro Speedway. The schedule initially included two heat races for each driver. However, the incident filled event caused many delays and with an 11:00 pm curfew at Flamboro, OSCAAR Officials cancelled the second heats. Drivers would compete in a forty-lap feature around the 1/3-mile semi-banked asphalt oval. However, a red-flag incident ended the contest on lap-30.

Starting on the pole for the ninth round of the 2022 Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modified Series held at Flamboro Speedway is Norman Newman. Newman drives the No. 11 Family Funland sponsored Modified. Next to Newman is the No. 81 Liquidation Nation Modified of Tyler Liscum. Row two is occupied by the Modifieds of Jason Keen and Jake Watson. Sixteen competitors took the green flag.
On Saturday evening at Flamboro Speedway Jason Keen captured his first Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modified Series feature victory. The driver of the No. 11 Oakville Auto and Diesel Modified finished second in heat two and started the main in the third position. By lap-3, Keen was in the top spot. Despite, coming under extreme pressure the points leader, Andy Kamrath, Keen held on for the win.
With five Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modified Series feature wins in seven events (rain led to the cancellation of the previous round at Sauble Speedway) Andy Kamrath led the championship by a comfortable thirty-six point margin. Kamrath began the event with a victory in heat one and started the main in the seventh position. He chased the eventual winner, Jason Keen, until the race ended with a red flag.
A.J. Emms finished third in round nine of the 2022 Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modified Series at Flamboro Speedway. Emms best results of the season were four runner-up results, which contributed to his third place in the championship standings. He finished third in his heat and started the final in the fifth position. Passes on Norman Newman and Tyler Liscum accounted for his third place result.
The highlight of T.J. Edwards’ season was victory at Delaware. However, he parked his regular ride to compete in the car previously campaigned by Steve Lyons. When the series stopped at Flamboro, he was thirty-six markers behind the points leader, Andy Kamrath. Edwards started the feature in sixth. He was in fourth-place when an incident caused him to leave the track, which led to the event ending with a red-flag.
The No. 51 SGR Plumbing sponsored Modified is piloted by Dale Reinhardt. Reinhardt finished second in heat one at Flamboro. He was gridded in the eighth position for the start of round nine. On the opening lap Reinhardt slid off the track and lost four positions. Reinhardt began his climb through the field and by lap-30 when the contest was red-flagged he was in the fourth place.
