The 11-race schedule will have Foster travelling clear across the province all Summer, as he prepares to transition from four-cylinder to eight-cylinder racing.
“I think I’ve already ran about 1000 laps in my head,” laughs Foster. “This season is going to be all about adapting.”
“Rolling into a different speedway every week is going to be an entirely new experience for me. Between figuring out how to get the most out of the car, learning about my competitors and getting ahold of a few new speedways it’s going to be a lot of new information to take in.”
And, while acclimating to a new car, new series and new speedways may sound like a daunting task, Foster insists his team is up for whatever comes their way this year.
“I’m ready for a huge learning curve – it’s not something that scares me at all,” explains the Newmarket, ON racer. “The idea of a new challenge is the whole reason our team decided we wanted to commit to the full schedule this year. The [OSCAAR Hot Rod] Series is as exciting an idea to come around in a long time. I’m happy to be a part of it.”
While Foster is realistic about the obstacles that lay ahead of his rookie season, he remains confident in his team’s ability to excel on tour.
“I know that we’re going to have to crawl before we walk – but I have a lot of confidence in my team,” says Foster.
“After we get our feet under us, I know that we’re going to have a package that can contend for wins every week. I’m excited to get back to the track on a regular basis with my family and team and pick up a win or two this year.”
