APC Autumn Colours Classic Debut Awaits OMRS Modified Series Teams

Even with a couple of rainouts along the way, 2023 was a strong season for the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series, presented by GEN-3 Electrical. Friday, October 6th the group will take things up a notch.


Teams with the popular open-wheeled racing series are getting their equipment ready for a first-ever run at Peterborough Speedway’s APC Autumn Colours Classic, presented by Toronto Motorama. OMRS racer and spokesperson Rick Warnes says closing out this year’s schedule at such a prestigious event is a big step for the group.


“We’ve always enjoyed a great relationship with J.P. and the team at Peterborough Speedway. Everyone is excited to wrap-up this year’s schedule at a spotlight event like the APC Autumn Colours Classic. Many of our racers have attended this race in the past as a fan but being part of the show – with our season championship on the line – is an entirely different experience.”


Heading into the Friday night finale, the point chase is very tight, with several drivers still in the running to improve their overall position. John Baker Jr. has all but locked-up the season championship, with 2022 title holder Alex Cuzzilla, Tyler Boullion and Bob Franks sitting 2nd, 3rd and 4th in the running order. There is just a 23-point cushion between the 3 talented racers. Nearly a dozen different teams have made at least 1 start during the 2023 schedule.
