After experiencing success in the Queenston OSCAAR Modiifeds, A.J. Emms will return to the division on a part-time basis in 2019.
“Entering into the season we feel confident that we’ve done the work needed to compete for wins,” A.J. Emms said. “Running a part time schedule allows us to focus on singular events with the attitude of going to run at the front. With a strong field of modified drivers, we’ve got our work cut out for us but we feel up to the challenge.”
Last season, Emms ran eight events on the series schedule with six top-fives seven top-10’s including a season-best runner-up at Jukasa Motor Speedway. Notably, he was able to reach victory lane at Peterborough Speedway with a heat win.
“Although we did have a lot of bad luck last year, it’s still not an excuse as to how we ran,” he commented. “We did have some strong runs but my team and I expect more. Moving into this season we need more speed out of both the car and driver to make it happen.”
Emms has competed in the OSCAAR Modified class over the past four seasons, scoring two feature victories, 25 top-five’s and 30 top-10 finishes. Currently, he ranks fourth on the OSCAAR all-time top-five finishes list.
Hastings Home Hardware and Klotz Canada join BAE Environmental, Peter Built Racecars, and AM Marketing as marketing partners for the 2019 campaign. Emms’ full plans, as well as other marketing partners, will be revealed as the season nears closer.
The team is expected to run the OSCAAR season opener at Sunset Speedway’s Spring Velocity on May 18 and 19.
