A.J. Emms Sweeps Heat Races, Scores Sixth Consecutive Podium Finish at Peterborough

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario — Running up front is the norm it seems for Emms Racing, as evident by another strong showing at Peterborough Speedway this past weekend.

“It was a great start to the night,” A.J. Emms said. “The car worked great right out of the trailer. We had a lot of speed, (and) winning both of our heat races was great, and then finishing third in the feature was a solid run for us. It’s great to see that the car has speed.

“Now it’s just executing and making sure we put ourselves in a good position so hopefully the cards fall our way and we can capitalize. Hopefully that will happen sooner than later and we’ll keep chipping away.”

Emms started off the night showing speed from the drop of the initial green flag, leading all 10 laps in the opening heat off the pole. He then started at the back for his second qualifier, carving his way through the field to pick up another checkered flag.

Starting sixth for the 40-lap feature, he would move up to fourth in the opening 10 laps before the first yellow flag at Lap 11. Restarting on the second row, he would look to continue making up ground, taking over third with 16 laps on the board. He would try to reel the top-two in through the second half of the feature, finding himself close to second in the closing laps, but unable to find a way by as he crossed the finish line in third.

When asked what it’s going to take to turn the six straight podiums into a trip to victory lane, Emms says it’s about continuing to show speed each week and hope luck is on their side.

“Both the 34 (TJ Edwards) and 35 (Andy Kamrath) car are very quick,” he added. “They have a different package than us, and that’s paying off throughout races. But like I said, hopefully the cards can fall our way and we can get this thing into victory lane in a couple weeks.”

The next race for the Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modifieds presented by Just Foam It will take place at Sauble Speedway on Saturday, August 20. In each of four previous appearances at the beach, he has scored a top-five finish, including a trip to victory lane in 2017 and second in June.

“Sauble hasn’t been one of my favourite race tracks, but we’ve had some success there recently so I am exciting to get back to Sauble Speedway,” he commented. “With a strong run the last time we were there starting near the rear of the field and making our way through, I was really proud of our team’s effort that week and I’m hoping we can carry some of that momentum and the momentum we’ve had to go out and win that feature.”

With his upcoming 73rd career start at Sauble Speedway with the series, he will tie the record for most career starts in OSCAAR Modified competition.

“I mean, I’ve raced for a long time and been able to very fortunate with the sponsorship in having BAE Environmental with me all the way through,” he commented. “Just having great opportunities to be in a racecar and the funding available, so very thankful to have the opportunity to have competed in that amount of events and continuing to learn and get better. So hopefully we can have a win – hopefully I can put it in victory lane for that.”

Emms Racing is proud to be supported by BAE Environmental, Bromley Automotive, TL Tire, FMR Scrap Buyers & Recyclers, Speedy Glass Orillia, Klotz Canada, Creecher’s Designs, TSS Top Shops, Peter Built Racecars, and Short Track Musings for the 2022 campaign.

A.J. Emms Scores Pair of Podiums at Delaware Speedway

LONDON, Ontario — Running up front both days this past weekend, A.J. Emms picked up a pair of podium finishes.

“Overall, it was a good weekend for us,” he commented. “We had two really good runs and it was nice to come out of there with some good momentum. Delaware Speedway officials did a good job all weekend putting on a good show. With all the carnage that happened, it was nice to keep the car clean and be able to focus on our maintenance moving forward.”

The first day of the double-header, Friday, started off with Emms starting at the back of his qualifying heat, making his way forward for an eighth-place finish.

Starting 15th for the 40-lap feature, Emms would escape the wreck on the opening lap, moving him up to the sixth spot. He would utilize the restart to move up a spot to fifth, jumping up to third following a caution a couple laps later. He would work at tracking down the top-two drivers, though unable to en route to a third-place finish.

He would start off the second-day of the double header on Saturday stronger, with a runner-up in his qualifier, setting him to start fifth for the feature.

Emms would move up to fourth by the caution at Lap 2, utilizing the restart to take the runner-up spot.  He would try to close the gap to the leader through the remainder of the feature, though unable to, ultimately scoring a runner-up finish.

The pair of finishes continue to add to the team’s strength at Delaware with a podium in each of his last six appearances, despite the repave done this past winter.

“I think it turned out good,” Emms said of the repave. “I know across the divisions, there were some tire issues some people had, but you’re going to get that with any new repave. But I feel they did a good job in that now you have an outside groove to run in some, and I look forward to going back there.”

With the pair of podiums this past weekend, Emms has now scored four podiums in a row, placing in third in the season standings.

“Like I was just saying, the momentum is always a good thing as now we can focus on not having to repair things but maintenance,” he said. “Obviously, we want to not just run good but get to victory lane, and that’s what we’re going to work towards these next races.”

Emms Racing is proud to be supported by BAE Environmental, Bromley Automotive, TL Tire, FMR Scrap Buyers & Recyclers, Speedy Glass Orillia, Klotz Canada, Creecher’s Designs, TSS Top Shops, Peter Built Racecars, and Short Track Musings for the 2022 campaign.

A.J. Emms Ready for OSCAAR Nationals at Delaware Speedway

LONDON, Ontario — Following back-to-back runner-ups, A.J. Emms carries momentum into this weekend’s OSCAAR Nationals at Delaware Speedway.

“Delaware is a strong track for us,” he commented. “We’ve had a lot of success there in the past. With the repave, we’re looking forward to getting there and seeing how the car works.”

Emms knows his way around the half-mile, as evident by a victory and pair of third-place finishes across three appearances. Though notably, the track surface is different than previous seasons as a result of an off-season partial repave.

“Delaware is definitely one of those places that I really enjoy to race at,” he said. “It’s definitely going to have a bit of different character with this repave, so that may be a factor with this next weekend. It definitely helps to add confidence, but it’s still a bit of crapshoot.”

The weekend also presents another unique challenge, with the schedule featuring a pair of separate race days on a single outing. Both Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2 will feature their own qualifying and 30-lap feature.

Knowing what’s ahead, he emphasized the importance of making “sure again we go over the car this week in the shop,” while crossing their Ts and dotting their Is for this coming weekend.

“Overall, it’s going to be a bit of a crap shoot and just make sure our mechanical things are in order to be there at the end,” he added.

As previously mentioned, the momentum is on the team’s side as evident by a pair of runner-ups, placing Emms second in the series points standings.

Emms Racing is proud to be supported by BAE Environmental, Bromley Automotive, TL Tire, FMR Scrap Buyers & Recyclers, Speedy Glass Orillia, Klotz Canada, Creecher’s Designs, TSS Top Shops, Peter Built Racecars, and Short Track Musings for the 2022 campaign.

A.J. Emms Scores Podium Finish at Delaware Speedway

LONDON, Ontario — Battling up front all feature long, A.J. Emms scored a podium finish on Saturday at Delaware Speedway.

“I think overall Delaware was a solid finish for us, especially after our run at Sunset Speedway,” he commented. “it was nice to get back into the top-three. We felt we made a lot of gains on the racecar with regards to handling and felt like our handling is getting close – just lacking speed down the straightaway, which is something we’re going to move on moving forward.

“Right now, we’re happy with a third-place finish and the fact that we kept the car in one piece, and excited to take that piece to Flamboro and see what we can come up with there.”

Emms started off the afternoon by scoring a second in his lone qualifying heat, setting him up to start sixth in the feature. There’d be contact off of the start in turn two ahead of No. 14 Modified, with Emms able to avoid everything without contact.

Restarting second, he’d slot in behind the race leader, remaining there through the first half of the race. He would hold off a challenge for the spot through a number of back-to-back laps, though ultimately faded back to third on Lap 23.

Emms never gave up, though, continuing to battle hard to cross the finish line with a third-place finish.

The finish allowed Emms to move back up to third in the standings, 15 points out of the lead with two races remaining.

The next event for the Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC OSCAAR Modifieds presented by Just Foam it is scheduled for Flamboro Speedway on Saturday, October 2.

“I really like Flamboro Speedway,” he said. “I think it’s a track with a lot of character and history – similar to Delaware in that aspect in having a lot of character and history. Coming to Frostoberfest – it’s a big event; I think it’d be really big to win that event to add it to the resume.

“We’re really just going to do the best that we can and hoping to come out with a win, but if that’s not the case, we’re going to leave it all on the table and give it our best shot.”

Emms has been strong there in the past, scoring two wins and a runner-up in his last three starts at the Hamilton-based oval.

“One of the biggest challenges coming to Flamboro is really having your car dialed in and being there for the end of the race,” he continued. “A lot of times we often get some long green flag stretch at Flamboro, so making sure your car doesn’t fade away on you on the long green flag stretch, and really, keeping your nose out of trouble.

“Getting near the end of the year, a lot of people are maybe increasing their aggression levels – and that goes for all divisions. So it’s going to be really important to keep our nose clean and really make sure the handling is there, avoid accidents, and stay up front.”
