Ontario Modifieds Racing Series Teams Head Into 2023 Season; Starts May 27th At Peterborough
Story By: JIM CLARKE / ONTARIO MODIFIEDS RACING SERIES – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – Racing Gods will soon be smiling on fans of the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series, presented by GEN-3 Electrical as the popular group kicks-off its 2023 schedule Saturday, May 27th at Peterborough Speedway.
This year, there will be 9 regular season dates on the line-up. 6 at Peterborough Speedway and another 3 at Flamboro Speedway. Series spokesperson Rick Warnes says race teams and fans have enjoyed the relationship OMRS has built at the 2 tracks.
“We’ve shared a strong partnership with everyone at Peterborough and Flamboro for more than a decade and we don’t see that changing anytime soon,” Rick Warnes said. “The group will host the 2nd annual edition of the Bill Pickford Memorial – Saturday, August 26th – at Flamboro Speedway, with the season championship finale at the OMRS first ever appearance – Friday, October 6th – during the 30th annual edition of the Autumn Colours Classic at Peterborough Speedway.”
Since its inception in 2010, the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series has been committed to powering and preserving affordable open-wheeled modified racing.
Heading into the 2023 schedule, last year’s champion Alex Cuzzilla – who celebrated his 20th birthday in December – will be searching for his second straight series title. The talented youngster from Nestleton, Ontario will face some tough competition as OMRS officials are expecting a stellar field – including former champions Robert Warnes and John Baker Jr. – to take the green flag for this year’s dates.
