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.
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.
Round eight of the 2023 Just Foam It OSCAAR Modified Series was held at Delaware Speedway. After two heat races, drivers competed in a forty-lap contest around the 1/2-mile semi-banked asphalt oval.

On the pole is the No. 45 Grisdale Racing Products sponsored Modified of Steve Trendell. Starting beside Trendell, is Wally Wilson driving the No. 69 Modified with backing from The Fyre Place. Ryan Dick and Dale Reinhart occupy row two.|
|The No. 35C has changed hands and the London Recreational Racing Modified, previously driven by Andy Kamrath, is now piloted by Shawn Chenoweth. Chenoweth is currently campaigning cars in the APC Late Model and Qwick Wick Super Stock Series. He is no stranger to Modified competition and was victorious in heat race two. Chenoweth started the feature in the eighth but was in first place by lap-10 and captured the win.|
|Round eight was Chris Milwain’s third race of the season. He drove the No. 21 Milwain Motorsports Modified, a new car, and finished fifth in his heat race. Miwain was gridded in the tenth position for the feature. He moved up the race order early and advanced a couple of spots when there was contact between Jason Keen and T.J. Edwards. On lap-20, Milwain passed Dale Reinhart for a second-place result.|
|Jamie Cox encountered problems in his heat race and only completed five laps before finishing seventh. The driver of the No. 3 CANUSA sponsored Modified started the forty-lap feature thirteenth in a fourteen-car field. With the issues resolved, Cox battled his way to the front. On lap-32, he caught and passed Dale Reinhart for third and then set his sights on Chris Milwain. At the finish, Cox was 0.176-seconds shy of second place.|
|With three races remaining, the title would be decided between the points leader, Jason Keen, or T.J. Edwards. They lined up next to each other for the feature, with Keen in the No. 18 Oakville Auto and Diesel getting the upper hand initially. At the beginning of lap-8, contact between them knocked Keen out of the race. His lead shrunk from seventeen to eight markers.|
