Flamborough, ON – Today at Flamboro Speedway we crown our 2019 Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series champion. To make things even more exciting, going into the IMRV 100, Kevin Gallant and Connor James are tied for series points, being the first time in LOSC history.
Over the course of this season, Gallant and James have put on one of the most exciting battles of 2019, going from track to track around Ontario. The 31 and the 4 teams have both proven they would be the two contenders for the championship. James winning both Sunset Speedway events and our annual visit to Peterborough Speedway. Gallant proving how important consistency is, finishing upfront and finally winning at our last visit to Flamboro Speedway.
Coming into today off a win will make James confident. Although, knowing Flamboro is Gallants “home track” will set nerves into the 4 teams plans. The 31 dominates Flamboro Speedway, hands down turning the most laps here out of any driver in our series. Gallant knowing he does well here, will make determine their goal, of winning that championship.
This event will hands down be our most exciting race of the season. Between championship battles being so tight, and our last event being at one of our toughest tracks that we visit, will make this an event you will not want to miss. Your top five in points are sitting with 22 points between the four teams. Depending on how this weekend goes, our top five could shift, as 6th and 7th are sitting two points back from 5th.
At the beginning of the year, our rookie of the year standings were quickly taken ahold by the 95 of Anthony Folino. Steve Aubertine and his 28 team have been trying to catch the 95, showing good speed over the last couple of races. BJ Harrison has also come to play in recent weeks, adding another rookie to the track, aiding the series to put on better shows.
As we continue to see drivers dabble in the series, Super Stock standout Brandon Mcferran has shown domination is in sight for the near future. At our last race at Sunset Speedway, leading until broken. With unknown plans for next year, we hope to see him join the series.
While we approach our last race of the season, we hope to see our LOSC fans supporting us tonight. We are excited and ready to crown our two potential and well deserving champions this weekend.
