WOODVILLE, ON — Well-travelled Anthony DiBello will begin to wind down his Modified campaign with the OSCAAR Modified Tour this weekend during Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest weekend.
The event will serve as a part of the 2 day season ending event at Flamboro. For the tour will also mark the second event of Ontario’s unofficial short track ‘Playoff Season’ – a collection of shows that tend to bring the biggest fields and fan counts for the most unique atmosphere of the entire year.
“Our team has always been motivated for these big events at the end of the season,” says DiBello with a confidence. “No matter what type of car you’re racing, the end-of-season shows just feel different.”
“The bigger the atmosphere, the more focused we’re going to feel when we unload. I can promise that we’re ready to scrap it out for to maintain our second place in the standings.”
Since transitioning his efforts from Super Stock racing to the OSCAAR Modified Tour, Anthony has showcased continuous improvement and hopes to further cement his program’s status as a future headliner this weekend.
“We’ve done everything this year with the goal of having our eyes wide open to learn about this car every time it’s on the track,” explained the open wheel driver. “The work and the research is so that every event is one step closer to where we eventually want to get.”
“This weekend will be invaluable experience for us,” continues the DiBello. “If we’re going to get better, these are the events that we need to find that next gear for. We’ve been testing and pushing ourselves all Summer so that we can find our stride before the off-season.”
“This might be our first (Frostoberfest) in a Modified but we’ve been down this road before,” noted DiBello. “I’m looking forward to soaking it all in this weekend because events like this are massive in just about every way.”
“We’re going to unload with a car that’s strong enough to run at the front and do all that we can to make the right decisions for this track. It feels like we’ve been living in the shop for the last two weeks to make sure this car is at its best – but it’ll all be worth it when we get it up to ‘full song’ at Flamboro.”
