Since its inception on 2010, OMRS teams have offered fans thrilling and entertaining motorsports action. Close to a dozen runners took the green flag in the 2022 season opener – Saturday, May 28th – at the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 3rd Mile. On the strength of his daring, 3-wide opening lap pass for the lead, Chad Strawn grabbed the top spot and hung on for his first trip to victory lane for the year. Series official and spokesperson Rick Warnes says it was a great start to the schedule.
“We’ll have 8 dates on the calendar and will be looking to build on the momentum of our opening night’s success,” explained Warnes. “Some fresh faces are expected to be in the starting line-up for the next kick at the can and our drivers can’t wait to get back on the track.”
Warnes says that while every event on the timetable offers the same number of points toward the overall title, nothing will come close to being crowned the first winner of the Bill Pickford Memorial. The Saturday, August 20th shootout at Peterborough Speedway – in honour of the former OMRS racer and series founder – will be the highlight of the 2022 season. Full details are still in the planning stages and will be announced shortly.
