Story By: ASHLEY MCCUBBIN / OSCAAR – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – OSCAAR’s presence at the Motorama Custom Car and Motorsports Expo continues to grow as Cory Horner will have his No. 79h Queenston OSCAAR Modified on display.
With 11 heat wins and a pair of feature victories, Horner led the way for his fellow drivers over the year en route to being crowned the 2018 OSCAAR Modified series champion.
“I would like to say thank you to Dave and all the OSCAAR staff for making our series possible,” he said at the year-end banquet. “It’s a big honor to be apart of this series. I have a lot of fun racing each and every weekend. I’d like to say congratulations to all the fellow competitors and John for not making it easy on me this year. I’d just like to say thank you to all my friends and family, and my girlfriend here for supporting me. I couldn’t do it without them, especially my cousin Daryl. He’s here with me every week helping me get the car ready in the shop and at the track. If it wasn’t for his help, I wouldn’t be here.”
Horner will be joined by his fellow 2018 series champions in the booth, as Daniel Hawn displays his No. 2 Living Lighting OSCAAR Pro Sprint, with Tyler Hawn showcasing his No. 2 Knightworks Design OSCAAR Hot Rod.
OSCAAR will also be showcasing their brand new 2019 Chevrolet Crew Cab LTZ OSCAAR Pacetruck. The new pace vehicle courtesy of OSCAAR Modified title sponsor Queenston Chevrolet Buick GMC features a one-of-a-kind wrap from OSCAAR Hot Rod Series title sponsor Knightwork Design.
On top of seeing these stellar vehicles, the series promises to have additional cars on display, so be sure to stop by and see them all up-close while picking up a copy of the 2019 series schedule.
Taking place from March 8 to the 10 at the International Center, the Motorama show features a bit of everything for both car and racing enthusiasts. From special show features, to guests, there is something for you to do throughout the duration of the event. One of the highlights of the show is the Short Track Night of Champions on Saturday, which will see all three 2018 OSCAAR Champions – Cory Horner, Tyler Hawn, and Daniel Hawn – recognized for their accomplishments.
