Who to watch for: Modifieds, #8 Gary McLean has been a roll lately and will be looking to add another feature to the win column. #88r Tommy Robb started his OSCAAR Modified career with a top finish last year at Peterborough. Currently 3rd in points Tommy will be looking for his first feature win. Max Beyore was out practicing Thursday night trying to get a little advantage to pick up his second win of the year. Gary Elliott has been running strong and has lots of laps at Peterborough; perhaps this could be the weekend for his first feature win. Davey Terry #14 finally got that first heat win last weekend perhaps this weekend will bring feature win number one.
Super Late Models: This season has proved you never know what will happen with the super late models. The #81 of Gressel and #17 of Cornelius have been sharing the feature wins but there are several drivers looking to break that streak. Coming off a strong second place run last weekend #22 Glenn Watson will be looking to return to victory lane. Rookie contender Kelly Balson has had this date circled on his calendar as the series returns to his home track. Jesse Kennedy has had several top runs at Peterborough and could very easily be celebrating in victory lane. Mike Beyore recorded a top five last week at Sauble and will be looking to improve on that this weekend.
Current weather forecast: Sunny and 25c
