Smithville , ON – Fresh off of an impressive 6thplace showing at Sunset Speedway on Monday, May 22nd, John Cadman will return to action this Saturday at Flamboro Speedway as the OSCAAR Super Late Model Tour invades the facility for the opening round of their 2017 season.
“Our goal for this season is to get better as a team – and it’s pretty hard to do that from our couch at home,” offers Cadman when asked of his team’s upcoming schedule.
“Flamboro is going to be the first OSCAAR show for us this season but we plan on following their full schedule. We need laps on track with this car and we need time spent forming better setup combinations as a team. It’s all part of it”
For Cadman, the early-season momentum generated by a strong Fast Eddie Racewear Super Late Model Series performance at Sunset will provide the No. 71 outfit with a benchmark to follow through the first half of his busy schedule.
“[Sunset] was the perfect start for us,” smiles the Hamilton, ON native. “That gave us a real solid idea of what we have for equipment and knowledge and what we’re able to build on”
“We found our rhythm real early and I really felt like we were improving with every single lap. We want to take all of what we learned on Monday and roll that into our run at Flamboro”
After a full season spent traversing the province in 2016 against some of the top Super Late Model competitors in Ontario, Cadman knows just how difficult it can be to turn in a memorable performance against the best of the best.
“We didn’t have many easy shows last year and I think that’s going to be the case again at Flamboro this Saturday,” says the second-generation competitor. “There aren’t many slouches. That’s just the way it is. I think there’s going to be a lot of hot iron there that we’re just going to need to deal with. We’ll have our A-Game with us all day long”
“Flamboro can deal you a bad hand if you let it,” adds Cadman. “It’s a tough place to race at that attracts a lot of tough talent. It can be hard to pass and things happen fast, so we’ll definitely be mindful of that. My plan is to get out front and stay there and hope we can dodge anything that comes our way.”
