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 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.

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

The pace lap at Delaware Speedway for round four of the 2023 Just Foam It OSCAAR Modified Series. Leading the field of fourteen starters is the No. 22S Sloan Stone Design Modified of Marshall Schrenk. Next to Schrenk in the No. 4 Zed Air sponsored Modified driven by Jeff Showler. The second row is occupied by the No. 3 CANUSA Modified of Jamie Cox and Norman Newman in the No. 11 Family Funland Modified.
Jamie Cox is better known for competing in the Late Model class, but at Delaware Speedway, he entered rounds three and four of the Just Foam It OSCAAR Modified Series. On day one of the Canada Day Weekend event, he finished fifth in the No. 3 CANUSA Modified. On Saturday, Cox finished second in the qualifier and started the main in third place. He moved to the front early and held on for the win despite pressure from Marshall Schrenk.
Despite problems during Friday's heat race, Marshall Schrenk bounced back in the feature to finish third. The No. 22S Sloan Stone Design Modified driver was prepared the next day and won the first qualifier. Schrenk started the thirty-lap finale on the pole but could only lead for ten laps before being passed by Jamie Cox. Despite a late race charge, he could not pass Cox and finished second.
Bryan Batty opened his 2023 campaign with a fourth-place finish at Flamboro Speedway. Unfortunately, he retired at Sauble Beach with an engine issue. The team was still having problems when they arrived at Delaware. Batty retired after just six laps on Friday. The next day he won his heat and started sixth in the feature. Batty crossed the finish line in fourth but was awarded third after Jeff Showler was disqualified.
The 2021 Just Foam It OSCAAR Modified Series champion, T.J. Edwards, drove the No. 34 Candue Homes Modified. He entered Saturday's contest at Delaware Speedway with two victories and the points lead. Edwards started the round four main in the tenth position. He progressed during the race and received the checker in the fifth spot. However, Jeff Showler failed tech and Edwards was classified with a fourth place.
