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

On November 1, 2022, it was announced that OSCAAR had merged with the United Racing Series. The relationship increases OSCAAR's resources and allows the United Racing Series to expand its brand and footprint in motorsports.

In other news, Just Foam It became the title sponsor for the Modified series. The division is now called the Just Foam It OSCAAR Modified Series.

The Just Foam It OSCAAR Modified Series, which receives backing from Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC, draws many competitors and features exciting races.

There are ten races on the 2023 OSCAAR Modified schedule.

  • May 27 - Flamboro Speedway
  • June 17 - Sauble Speedway
  • June 30 - Delaware Speedway
  • July 1 - Delaware Speedway
  • July 15 - Full Throttle Motor Speedway
  • August 5 - Peterborough Speedway
  • August 19 - Sauble Speedway
  • September 23 - Delaware Speedway
  • September 30 - Flamboro Speedway
  • October 6-8 - 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 driverís 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.

OSCAAR's first visit to Delaware in 2023 was a doubleheader event for the Modified and Hot Rod divisions. Round three of the Just Foam It OSCAAR Modified Series was a thirty-lap contest around Delaware's 1/2-mile semi-banked oval.
