A.J. Emms Ready to Chase After Victory at Velocity 250

INNISFIL, Ontario — When the OSCAAR Modifieds take to Sunset Speedway this weekend for the Velocity 250, one of the drivers in the field hoping to take home the win will be A.J. Emms.

“To win at the Velocity would really mean a lot to our whole team being that it’s both a big event and a home track for our team,” he said. “With the luck we’ve had this season, we’ve only run a part time bases which has made us even hungrier for wins. We’re going to do everything in our power to have a strong run.”

Knowing that it will be a long race with 40 laps being the distance, Emms says his plan is to run as hard as he can all race long.

“We need to start near the front, exercise patience, and stay out of trouble to be there at the end,” he added.

So far this season, Emms Racing has been successful with top-five finishes in each of their appearances this season, highlighted by a pair of runner-ups at Jukasa Motor Speedway.

The confidence entering this weekend also comes from a top-five in his most recent Sunset Speedway appearance.

“Having a lot of laps at sunset is definitely an advantage and helps our teams confidence heading into this weekend,” he said. “We’re excited to get out onto the track.”

The team is also pleased to announce that they will be competing at Autumn Colours Classic in the OSCAAR Modified, something that has the driver of the No. 14 very ecstatic for based on his victory there two years ago and a runner-up at Peterborough in August.

A.J. Emms Scores Second Podium Finish of 2018 Campaign

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario — Battling upfront throughout the 40-lap feature on Saturday night, A.J. Emms scored his second podium finish of the season.

Emms was quick from the start of the night, making his way through the field in his first heat to score a runner-up finish. He then used a front row starting in the second qualifier to score his first win of the season.

Starting fourth in the feature, he ran solidly in the top-five through the first half of the event, before using a pair of restarts in the second half to move up two spots to second. He would find himself close to eventual feature winner Cory Horner, but was unable to find a way by, crossing the finish line in the runner-up spot. It marks his second podium of the season after finishing second at Jukasa Motor Speedway in June.

The OSCAAR Modifieds will be back in action at Sauble Speedway on August 11 with event details are located at https://www.saublespeedway.ca. Emms knows how to get the job done there, as he won the feature last season.

A.J. Emms Rebounds with Top-Five at Flamboro Speedway

HAMILTON, Ontario —- After seeing his night end early a couple weeks ago, A.J. Emms came back stronger this past weekend with a top-five finish at Flamboro Speedway.

Emms was fast from the start of the night, finishing second and third in his qualifying heats.

Starting the feature from the outside of the front row, he would take the top spot off the initial green, leading the field till the race’s lone caution at Lap 8. He Emms got a good restart to keep the lead, stretching out his gap on the field a little. However, that wouldn’t last long, as the field began to close the gap right back to him over the long green flag run. By Lap 18, there was no gap as John Harper got alongside him for the top spot, taking the lead on Lap 22. Battling an ill-handling condition, Emms was unable to hold off the string of cars right behind, fading back to fifth.

Once he fell back, though, he’d find a comfortable spot in line and was able to solidly balance dealing with the ill-handling condition and lap traffic to cross the finish line in fifth.

The OSCAAR Modifieds will be back in action at Peterborough Speedway on August 4 with event details are located at https://www.peterboroughspeedway.com. In his last appearance there, Emms scored a runner-up finish to Gary McLean.

A.J. Emms’ Night Goes Up In Smoke at Kawartha

IMG_3454FRASERVILLE, Ontario — Beginning to track down the leader in his qualifying heat, A.J. Emms saw his night go up in smoke at Kawartha Speedway on Friday.

Emms started off the heat in fourth, immediately making up ground as he was third by halfway. He would make his way by Kelly Balson, set to track down Gary McLean for the top spot. However, with two laps to go, a bit of smoke began to come out the exhaust of the No. 14 Modified, and that just increased with the motor blowing up.

Unfortunately, the mechanical failure would see Emms not start the 40-lap feature later on that night.

The OSCAAR Modifieds will be back in action at Flamboro Speedway on July 28 with event details are located at https://www.flamborospeedway.ca.

A.J. Emms Scores Top-10 Finish at Flamboro Speedway

MILLGROVE, Ont — Making his first Pro Late Model start of the 2018 season, A.J. Emms scored a top-10 finish on Saturday night at Flamboro Speedway.

Starting at the tail of the field for the first feature, Emms was able to work his way forward into the top-10 by the mid-way point of the event, running as high as eighth. However, the countless caution laps did not play into his favor as he was forced to head pit side out of fuel before the race’s completion.

Starting the second feature at the back as well, he once again made his way forward, dodging the different incidents that took place over the course of the event. He once again made his way into the top-10, crossing the finish line with a sixth-place finish.

Special thanks to Mike Westwood Fabrication Motorsports, and their sponsors for the opportunity.

Emms will be back behind the wheel of his familiar No. 14 OSCAAR Modified this Friday, July 13 at Kawartha Speedway. In the two events that Emms has ran thus far in 2018, he has scored a pair of top-fives including a runner-up at Jukasa Motor Speedway.

The night looks to be busy with the modifieds being joined by the OSCAAR Hot Rod Series, Bone Stocks, and Canadian Legends Nationals. Everything kicks off at 6:30 pm with adult grandstand admission being $15.00 if you print or show the coupon the OSCAAR website.

A.J. Emms Scores Runner-Up in First Trip to Jukasa Motor Speedway

Starting up front in the feature, A.J. Emms kept himself in position to challenge for the win all race long en route to a runner-up finish.

The OSCAAR Modifieds would only run a single heat on Saturday afternoon at Jukasa Motor Speedway, which Emms made the most of with a runner-up performance.

Drawing the pole position for the feature, Emms would fall in line in second shortly after the drop of the green flag. While he was able to stick with eventual race winner Gary McLean throughout the event, and challenge for the top spot on a mid-race restart, it wasn’t meant to be and he’d cross the finish line in second.

“Gary is doing an awesome job each and every week,” Emms said. “They definitely been the class of the field not just this year, but for a very long time. We’re very fortunate to be up here with him. I’m pretty proud of my crew. The handling went away at the end, but we got something we can work on for next week and we’re definitely proud to be here. To get a second place finish, especially here at Jukasa Motor Speedway – it’s a historic place and it means a lot to run upfront here.”

The compliments were well received from fans and fellow competitors for Emms following the race, including those heard from McLean.

“It was a great battle,” McLean spoke of the battle for the lead. “You know, A.J. had to miss last week due to an injury, and he’s back at it. He’s fast. He’s fast every week. The kid can drive a racecar. A lot of fun. I’d wish we get more guys like that who can drive them.”

The OSCAAR Modifieds will be back in action at Jukasa Motor Speedway on June 23 alongside the OSCAAR Hot Rod Series and Ontario Outlaw Super Late Model Series. Event details are located at https://www.jukasamotorspeedway.com/.
