First Checker of 2019……Rick Woolner Memorial….Katie MacDonald Photo

The Rick Woolner Memorial at Full Throttle Motor Speedway was a success but somewhat a disappointment. The success part was due to Rick’s sister Julia, and her husband Jim, working very hard to get as much money as possible for the racers who would come to support the 20th Anniversary of the Rick Woolner Memorial. She raised close to $4000 to go on top of the purse put up by FTMS.
The disappointment was the turn out. I think 16 cars would have been the minimum for me to see, but we should have had 20. Only 1 car from OMRS came and the rest were mostly OSCAAR.
We did pick up a heat win, our first win of 2019 and we were somewhat competitive. A good night for us over all.
The full story will be posted on Diary of a Season 2019 by Tuesday night.

Sunset/OSCSCAR Memorial for John Harper Sad, But Successful

We had a great memorial for John “Spider Man” Harper on Saturday at Sunset Speedway. Jackie, John’s wife, asked me to speak on behalf of John and the family and I was honored to do so. I was also able to share the Gospel and pray after the Memorial in the tech garage. We then went outside and got this picture (courtesy of Ashley McCubbin).
Later on the front chute, right after fan appreciation Meet the Drivers, I was again able to speak to the fans about John. There was a moments silence and then I was honored to invite God into our service with prayer through Jesus Christ.
The full report on June 29th will be completed by Friday. You can find all race results and reports on Diary of a Season 2019. Go to the Message Board, then click on General Chat and you will see all the posts from 2007, including 50 Years of Stats.

John “Spider Man” Crosses Life’s Finish Line

Sad news today of the passing of good friend and fierce competitor John “Spider-Man” Harper. John won his last race with the OSCAAR Modifieds on June 2nd at Jukasa Speedway. He was also tied for the lead in Modified points.

John came down with an illness Saturday night June 22nd, a disease that hit him hard sending him to Toronto where he went into an induced coma. His vital organs began to shut down.

John passed away 11pm Thursday June 26th.
I am completely shocked that we would lose John so quickly. 🙁
Continue to pray for his wife Jackie, brother John, family and friends.

10th Anniversary “Think Pink”…..June 15th….. Olympic Village

We will have our Quaker State Modified at Olympic Village on Saturday from 11:00 till 1:30. If Delaware Speedway rains out we will stay until 2:30.
If Flamboro Speedway gets to race, I will race the Late Model. Derrick Tiemersma is scheduled to race it, but the weather being so bad it would be easier on Derrick and Shirley if I took the car this weekend……all depends on the weather, Delaware is my first commitment in the Modified.
Please drop by in support of the Breast Cancer fund raiser at Olympic Village. This is the 10th Anniversary.
