Saturday night the Ontario Sportsman Series returned to Full Throttle Motor Speedway to complete the rain out from earlier in the season. The 18 of Chad Mcglynn and 15 of Michael Hryniuk Jr. comprised the front row that brought the field to green. A fierce side by side battle over the opening laps found the 15 prevailing to grab the early lead. Hryniuk Jr. held this spot until lap 33. After contact between the 15 and 18 the hard charging #3 of Tim Tolton slipped by them both to take the lead, a position he would never relinquish over the rest of the race despite charges from Hryniuk Jr, and Kevin Trevillin. The checker flag fell over Tolton followed by Trevillin , Hryniuk Jr, Brad Robinson with a career best fourth and Mark Patrick with his first top 5 of the season.
Friday June 17 found the OSS hitting the newly paved Delaware Speedway for the first time this season.
After group qualifying points leader #15 Michael Hryniuk Jr was atop the charts, narrowly missing the track record.
Under windy cool conditions the field took the green flag with Hryniuk Jr jumping out to the lead closely pursued by the 38 of Derek McCullough. 20 laps in the 2 of Todd Sheppard began his charge towards the front reeling in the top 2 . Lap 39 saw the 2 finally get inside the 15 and taking the lead. The rest of the race saw Todd continue to slowly widen his lead as Michael and Derek raced closely for 2nd.
The race went green for the full 100 laps with the 2 crossing the line first , followed by the 15 ahead of the 38.
2 cars making their 2022 OSS debuts rounded out the top 5 with Doug Cathcart 4th and Rob Windis 5th.
The series resumes with their make up race at Full Throttle Speedway this weekend.
Under sunny skies the Automotivefluids.ca OSS cars took to the track for 100 Laps on the high banked Innisfil oval. Qualifying saw Todd Sheppard edge Michael Hryniuk Jr for the pole as the ageless veteran Mark Patrick rounded out the top 3.
At the start Hryniuk Jr charged to the lead, followed closely by Sheppard . Contact between the 2 leaders 15 laps in, sent both cars to the rear. From there Brad Robinson assumed the lead , his first ever, as Sheppard and Hryniuk charged back thru the pack. After a flurry of cautions mid race the 2 and 15 again found themselves at the front. Over the remaining laps they both took turns leading. At the line Sheppard edged Hryniuk Jr by 2 car lengths for the victory. Rounding out the top 5 were Brendon Patrick, Kevin Lay ( both career bests) and then Kevin Trevellin in 5th.
The series returns on the 1/2 mile Delaware oval on June 17th.
