Brandon Watson ranked Top Driver in Inside Track Power Rankings

For the second straight season in a row, Brandon Watson found himself at the top as he won his second straight OSCAAR Super Late Model Championship.

“We kept our nose clean and were able to win the title,” he commented. “Definitely got to thank the crew, especially my dad. Definitely without them, we wouldn’t be here. They are always thrashing on the car.”

For his accomplishments, Watson was honored at the 2014 Canadian Motorsports Expo as part of the Short Track Night of Champions. He was also ranked first in the Inside Track Year End Short Track Power Rankings presented by London Recreational.

Going into the year, Watson wasn’t even sure if he was going to run the full schedule.

“We didn’t know what to expect going into year but got off to a good start and stayed with it,” he commented.

Though after winning three of the first four features of the season, the decision was simple – run the full schedule and go for the championship.

From there, Watson finished inside the top five every week – except Kawartha where mechanical problems took him out of the running.

Watson announced at the CME that he will not be back to OSCAAR full-time in 2014 as he is looking to go run some late model races in the United States with the CRA Series.

Watson will kick off his season like many drivers do by heading down to take part in the World Series Speedweeks at New Smryna Speedway. Last year, Watson was able to pull off a couple feature victories.

“Obviously going down there looking for success,” he commented. Hope to get it figured out and also get some top five finishes.”
