Battling hard from the drop of the green flag paid off for A.J. Emms, as he was able to kick off the 2018 OSCAAR Modified season with a top-five finish at Sunset Speedway.
Emms started off the weekend strong, finishing second in both of his qualifying heats.
Starting fourth in the feature, he’d battle side-by-side with Gary McLean for third in the early stages, before slotting down in line in fourth. He’d maintain the track position through the first half of the event despite a pair of cautions. On the second restart, he was battled for third with John Harper, though once again slotted back in line in fourth as of Lap 18. He’d be challenged for fourth, but was able to keep the position until the third caution flew with 19 laps to go.
Restarting fourth, he’d battle once again for third, though ultimately fell back in line in fourth once again. A pair of back-to-back restarts wouldn’t go in his favor, ultimately dropping back to fifth with seven laps to go. He was able to hold on through the late stages, though, crossing the line in fifth-place.
The OSCAAR Modifieds will be back in action at Kawartha Speedway on June 1 alongside the OSCAAR Hot Rod Series, Ontario Legends Series, and Bone Stocks. Make sure to come out and check out the great night of racing, remembering to either print or show the coupon to get $5 off your general admission.
