LOSC Returns to Peterborough Speedway this coming Satuday

Posted on: August 7th, 2019

Peterborough, ON – As the season continues to fly by, the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series will make their fifth on track appearance this weekend at Peterborough Speedway. With championship points coming to a close, all drivers have their sights set on victory lane.

Peterborough Speedway is Canada’s fastest 1/3 mile paved oval, meaning that racing in any division is promised to put on a good show. With LOSC’s 19 car field, we are set to entertain.

Back in 2017, Brandt Graham set the track record at 14.500. With Graham no longer asphalt racing, names like Gallant, Allan, McGlynn and James will be the top ticket names you will have to watch out for this weekend.

With over half of the season now completed, our Championship points battle continues to flare with many drivers tied for positions. Third in points is one of your LOSC veterans Alvin McNicol, as your second place points leaders are Gallant and Doerr who are tied once again. While Connor James continues to lead the points on his lonesome for the second consecutive week.

Due to the series last race at Sauble Speedway being cut short at lap 50, we now see McGlynn in your top five, who jumped four positions since our last visit at Sunset on June 22nd. This proves that with the season winding down, anything is possible. Making it hard to predict who we will see in victory lane this Saturday.

For the Saturdays August 10th event, pit gates will open at 1:30, with general admission grandstands opening at 4:00 and the first set of heats for the home track series will be green flag racing at 5:00.

Weather Played in Favour of McGlynn as Team Picks Up First Win of the Season

Posted on: August 2nd, 2019

Sauble, ON – Sunny skies showed hope for LOSC teams as the series made the trip to Sauble Speedway, for their third race of the season. After practice sessions were well underway the skies started to darken as we were preparing to battle at the beach.

With rain in the forecast and headed to the speedway, the track and Series made the mutual decision to scratch qualifying and invert the top 10 in points, to roll the field off to green. The invert left the #61 of Brent Wheller leading the field; followed by Chad McGlynn, Michael Hrynuik Jr, Tim Tolton, and Doug Catchcart, rounding out your top five.

The #3 of Tim Tolton brought out the first caution of the 100 lap race. The three-car slowly made his way around the track when the yellow was finally brought out three corners later. With speed of the #3 car being shown in laps prior to the caution, this changed the top five outlook early on in the race.

As laps were being added to the board, while the track made the decision to count caution laps, we quickly started to see your top five in points, make their way through the field. Gallant, Doerr, McNicol, and James seem to be repeating names as we travel around the province. With Gallant leading the “fast five” through the field, Cathcart and Trevellin were not far behind.

The #18 of Chad McGlynn took the early lead and dominated the night as the rain started to fall. Not pressured by the pack of hungry wolves behind him, the 18 stayed calm and collected as “laps to go” started to fall.

A mid race caution fell, as the #96 of Scott Laporte broke down, with caution laps counting. Laporte tried numerous times to bump start his hotrod but it was not working out. That concluded the race for the 96.

As lightning and rain started to settle in, drivers started to get antsy. McGlynn still lead your 18 car class, as your repeated “fast five” began to race through the field. Quickly skies started to darken and clouds were rolling in as mother nature washed our night away 50 laps early. Your race winner, Chad McGlynn dominated all night long, as the #18 picked up his first checkered flag of the season.

Gallant, James, Doerr and Wheller rounded out your top five. The #19 of Kevin Trevellin was your “Hard Charger” award winner, as the LOSC veteran went from 15th to 7th in the quick 50 lap dash. Your rookie driver standings now puts Folino ahead by 82 points, with your championship points leader now Connor James. Your top five is James, Doerr and Gallant tied for second, McNicol and Chad McGlynn.

The LOSC series is back in action on August 10th at Peterborough Speedway. As the end of the season is quickly approaching, we are seeing Intense racing as championship battles begin to rise.

Sauble Speedway’s Winner – Series Points Leader for “Halfway” Mark in Schedule

Posted on: July 26th, 2019

The last two races that the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series have put on have been no less than exciting. With two different drivers conquering victory lane and new faces coming to play, the series has caught eyes of race fans around the province. As the series moves into their third race of the season, the points standings are heavy as the battle for the championship is on the line.

The pressure is on for the top three in series points. With James and Doerr tied for first, Gallant and McNicol are not far behind both tied at 190 points for second and Catchcart and Tolton tied as well for third. This sets the series up for some exciting races as the drivers get ready to take on Sauble Speedway this weekend for the third race of the season.

The “Battle at the Beach” is always an exciting race for LOSC. The tightknit track calls for some hard racing as our series never fails to put on a good show for our fans. With points being so close, it is hard to say who we will be interviewing in victory lane, although your top five picks, are not hard to come by. McNicol, James, Doerr, Gallant and Tolton seem to be our reoccurring top five finishers so far this season. Although with the upcoming talent and impressive runs by Hrynuik Jr and McGlynn, it is hard to predict which drivers will conquer the bullring.

As James and McNicol lead the field with each a victory at hand, both can agree their wins did not come easy. Dating back to our first race of the season, Veteran driver McNicol did seem to walk away from the pack behind him, although Gallant, Catchcart, Doerr and James were on a mission. James can attest to that as well, as the young star battled side by side with the 54 of Kevin Allen for the majority of the race at Sunset Speedway. The two were in constant combat for their first wins of the season.

The 54 team decided against running at LOSC’s season opener at Full Throttle Motor Speedway, although proved to us at Sunset that the team was there to win. Hot right out of the box, the 54 team qualified upfront and stayed there battling with James, taking early lead over the 4, coming up one spot short for their first race of the season. Steve Arrand and Kevin Allen plan to bring their “A” game to Sauble as they fight to get the top in points standings.

2019 has brought new car counts to the series, as we see a handful of newly discovered names. Aubertine, Folino, and Robinson count as your rookie contenders for this years season. Currently, Folino is leading the rookie standings as he has completed both events that the series has ran.

With this weekend’s race at Sauble Speedway being our halfway mark for the season, things will start to become hot and heavy as the time is crunching down, for the drivers competing for the championship. All drivers can agree that is it consistency that wins the race, and as we continue to travel around the province, we will see who will be crowned our series champion.
