Brandon Watson carries OSCAAR Championship into new season

Everybody has watched Brandon Watson blossom into the racecar driver that he is today, and when he made the decision to tackle the full OSCAAR schedule for the first time, everyone knew he’d be one to watch. That came to fruition during the season as the 19 year old captured four victories and only finished off the podium three times on his way to the 2012 OSCAAR Super Late Model Championship.

Two of those victories the Stayner, Ontario driver was able to capture include OSCAAR crown jewels – the Don Biederman Memorial at Kawartha Speedway and the Autumn Colors Classic feature at Peterborough Speedway.

Speaking of his season, Watson said he knew that he had the car and team to do it after the success they had experienced during part-time schedules in years prior. He also made note that racing the JEGS CRA tour in the States in 2011 helped somewhat in his championship bid.

Watson did south of the border in 2012, making a start in the Snowball Derby.

“That was a big race – a lot of fun to run,” Watson said. “We were unfortunate that in the Last Chance qualifier that we got involved in the wreck, no fault of our own.”

Moving into the 2013 season, Watson says his focus is on the OSCAAR Super Late Models, as he is ready to tackle yet another full season.

“Definitely a great series, getting better and better each year,” Watson said in speaking of the super late models.

For his championship and M.R.E Pro Series Open Late Model feature victory at Sunset Speedway, Watson was ranked fourth in Spencer Lewis’ Inside Track Motosports News Ontario Asphalt Short Track Rankings.
