OWEN SOUND, ON – Fresh off of a very impressive maiden voyage with the OSCAAR Hot Rod Series, rookie Douglas Fischer will look to improve in his second career start with the tour this Saturday at Flamboro Speedway’s Frostoberfest.
“I couldn’t have imagined a better debut for us in this car,” beams Fischer as his team prepares for this Saturday’s event. “I hopped out with a grin from ear to ear when we were done. I knew, right then and there, that we have an absolute rocketship.”
“Last weekend was just an icebreaker for us,” adds the Owen Sound, ON driver. “We have a lot of things to be excited about. I know that we’re only going to get strong from here – and that’s an awesome feeling.”
And as Ontario’s short track community continues to buzz about the team’s ‘best appearing’ candidate – Fischer himself makes sure to offer plenty of credit to Streamline Race Products boss Shaun McWhirter for his design and dedication.
“When I made the decision to take a serious shot at this [Hot Rod Series] deal – there was never any question that Shaun McWhirter was the guy to make it happen for me,” says Fischer. “For as long as I’ve know Shaun, I’ve had an immense respect for his handiwork.”
“The man’s a master at what he does,” adds the well-spoken wheelman. “You can see it in every division he works with. He doesn’t do anything half-assed. Working with him and Chad [Eden] has been a dream. This is, without question, the most gorgeous racecar I’ve ever owned.”
After a strong debut, Fischer will look to build on his momentum at Frostoberfest and follow up with what he hopes will be a Hot Rod Series championship bid in 2018.
“I have no doubt that we can be a factor in this division moving forward,” insists the former Sauble Speedway regular with confidence. “I have all the respect in the world for the guys on this tour that have put in work all season. But, I know that we can be at the front of the field with them.”
“There were things we liked and things we didn’t like about our performance at Sunset,” continues Fischer. “Because of that, we already have our list of things that we need to change ahead of Flamboro to be even better. We won’t stop until we’ve reached out potential. Just stay tuned.”
