How it all started.
Bill Pickford, Randy Hollingsworth, & Richard Warnes
The collaboration of Bill Pickford, Randy Hollingsworth, and Richard Warnes sought to strengthen the class of Open Wheel Modified Racing east of the GTA. These three car owners / racers would go on to form a group of like-minded racers in January of 2010.
The group was able to obtain races in the first couple of seasons at the now defunct CTMP Speedway (formerly Mosport Speedway). With the unexpected closing of CTMP Speedway, the group approached Peterborough Speedway and with the support of J.P. and his staff, a new home was established to continue providing a venue for the modified racing.
In 2012, the group was branded with the name of OMRS – Ontario Modifieds Racing Series. OMRS’s mission is to keep racing true to its roots, while preserving competitive and affordable Open Wheel Modified Racing created for racers by racers. OMRS presents the drivers with a fair and cost-effective rules package, along with a competitive nightly payout.
OMRS has been fortunate to have the additional support of John and Frank Casale of Flamboro Speedway in providing a couple of races each year to enhance the schedule. OMRS has also had the opportunity of having obtained races at several other speedways over the years, notably Delaware, Sauble and Sunset Speedways.
The OMRS group and race teams are very thankful to have the long-time marketing and sponsorship support of TORQUE BUILDERS INC. (formerly TECHTONIX Construction Corporation) who have been the series points fund sponsor. They will once again be providing their support with the 2019 OMRS Points Fund.
Make sure that you attend an event, as the OMRS features some of the fastest and most exciting race cars at the speedway.
