A.J Emms Set for Partial OSCAAR Modified Schedule

ORILLIA – After experiencing success in the Queenston OSCAAR Modiifeds, A.J. Emms will return to the division on a part-time basis in 2019 with backing from BAE Environmental.

“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.

Although the schedule has not been finalized for the 2019 season yet, Emms does expect to have the No. 14 Modified out at Sunset Speedway’s Spring Velocity weekend on May 18 and 19. The modifieds will run a pair of qualifying heats on Saturday to set the field, followed by a 40-lap feature on the Sunday.

In seven starts at the Innisfil oval, Emms has scored four top-10 finishes, including a track-best fifth in last year’s Spring Velocity feature.

“To win the first event at Sunset Speedway would be huge,” he said. “We feel that we’ve got a handle on the race track but haven’t been able to put together runs. With the homework we’ve done this off season, we hope to be able to do that.”

The team is also planning to run the second-ever event for the series at Jukasa Motor Speedway on June 1. Last year, Emms ran in the top-five throughout the feature en route to a runner-up finish in his first start on the half-mile oval.

As mentioned, BAE Environmental is back with Emms Racing for the third straight season.

Located at 18 Park View Ave in Oro-Medonte, BAE & Associates Environmental Inc. serves all of Ontario providing complete, hands-on, environmental consulting, concentrating on Phase I, II & III ESA’s, specializing in the remediation of Brownfields using the latest of technologies.

Additional plans, as well as other marketing partners, will be revealed as the season nears closer.

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.

Emms Racing is proud to be supported by BAE Environmental, FMR Scrap Buyers, Artech Promotional Products, Klotz Canada, WIX Filters, Peter Built Racecars, TSS Top Shops, and Creecher’s Design for 2018.

A.J. Emms Focused on Visiting Victory Lane in 2018

After a successful third season of OSCAAR Modified competition, there’s only one thing on A.J. Emms’ mind entering this year – winning.

“Going into this season, I’m realistically just looking for wins,” he said. “We’re not winning enough and I’m just really wanting to get back in the winner’s circle and knock out more victories consistently. The series is full talent – lots of good cars with some good talent. So I’m ready to enter that pool and hopefully come out on top. We’ve made some changes to the car.

“A lot of talk has been about the rookies at the start of this year, but I think we’ve been trying to fly in under the radar and doing a lot of work on our car and make sure our program is where it needs to be in the 2018 season. So I think we’re definitely optimistic, but at the same time we’re ready for a long and hard season. We’re ready to get the work done and do what we know we can. If we do our best we can every night, then we should be okay.”

While scoring a sixth in the year-end standings in his rookie campaign, the past two years have seen the Orillia, Ontario native score a pair of runner-ups with a victory each year – Autumn Colours Classic at Peterborough (2016) and Sauble Speedway (2017).

“First of all, I would like to thank everybody involved with OSCAAR,” Emms said. “This is a big organization, as you can see from all the people that we are sitting next two, and you should all be proud of yourselves for how each team not only contributed to the brand of OSCAAR and making it this whole show go, but all those little accomplishments throughout the year. Racing is a big commitment, and I know each team has put in a lot of work.

“I would like to congratulate the champions this year as that’s something that we all strive for; that’s what I’m still working on, and getting kind of closer. I’m very fortunate that my crew, family, sponsors, and fiancé have been able to support me throughout all of this, and I would like to thank you all for being here.”
