One is a rookie. One enters his third season of modified racing. Both have family members involved in racing. And now this weekend, both will have their cars on display as part of the OSCAAR booth at the Mega Speed Custom Car and Truck Show.
Rookie Bobby Tolton and last year’s second place points finisher Brent McLean will have their cars on display at the Mega Speed Custom Car and Truck Show, which takes place March 22nd to 24th at the International Centre. OSCAAR officials will be talking to show attendees about the cars, the schedule, and the season ahead.
Tolton will have his No. 13 OSCAAR Modified on display as he enters his first season of competition at the modified level. Tolton brings six years of mini stock and limited late model experience to the table.
“It’s a collection of the greatest drivers in the province. You get the best of the best and everyone’s respectful,” Tolton explained earlier this year to OSCAAR journalist Clayton Johns. “They race against each other with a lot of respect. That’s what I like.”
Tolton has released pictures of the car in progress, including the photo featured, with more available on his website at http://bit.ly/bobbytolton.
Last year, McLean finished second in points to his cousin Gary McLean. McLean in just his second season of modified competition, rarely finishing outside of the top five, with a win coming in the Rick Woolner Memorial at Varney Motor Speedway.
OSCAAR is known as Ontario’s premier tour division for Super Late Model and Modified action.
The OSCAAR Modifieds enter their second full season, ready to bring more action packed racing to tracks across Ontario. Many of the drivers have announced that they will return, including champion Gary McLean and front runners Brent McLean, Davey Terry and Josh Gruntz. They will be joined by some rookies as they have announced that they want to get involved in the action.
The Modifieds will hit eight tracks across 15 dates, including some double headers with the Super Lates.
As previously noted, the Mega Speed Custom Car and Truck Show takes place at the International Centre from Friday March 22nd to Sunday March 24th. The show will include many custom vehicles on display, including some Corvettes to celebrate Corvette’s 60th Anniversary and some Camaros to celebrate Camaro’s 40th Anniversary. The show also includes a star studded line-up that includes Rally Racer Ken Block and car designer Chip Foose, with wrestler Bill Goldberg as the event Grand Marshall.
