Luke Gignac, ADAMS Motorsports Crowned 2017 OSCAAR Modified Champion

A third-place finish in the Autumn Colours Classic worked out perfectly for Luke Gignac and ADAMS Motorsports as it allowed the Orillia, Ontario-based team to clinch the 2017 OSCAAR Modified Championship.

The weekend didn’t start off cleanly for Gignac, though, who went for a slide through the grass on the opening lap of his first heat before placing second. He then rebounded to pick up a win in the second qualifier.

Starting on pole virtue of his Chase for the Colours victory, he led the first 16 laps before fading back to second behind eventual race winner Gary McLean. He continued to battle hard, fading back to third on Lap 35, before crossing the line in third.

“It’s just great to be here,” Giganc said. “It’s unbelievable to win a championship in a class of guys like this. Before this race, the car wouldn’t start – but two teams stepped up, and the 8 (Gary McLean) team and the 56 (Jase Cornell) team. They stepped up so I have to thank them as without their help, I wouldn’t have made it out here and won the championship.”

While poised for a strong run on Sunday afternoon at Flamboro Speedway, Luke Gignac was involved in a late-race incident.

Gignac began the weekend by finishing fifth in his first heat, followed by a runner-up in the second qualifier.

Starting seventh for the 30-lap feature, he would drop back to eighth in the early stages, remaining there until the first caution at Lap 10 for an incident on the backstretch. The restart saw him drop back another spot to ninth, with a second yellow flag waving at Lap 18.

The restart gave him an opportunity to move forward, moving up to eighth, and looking for seventh when the caution flew for a spin ahead of him in turn two. Restarting seventh, he was able to pass Tolton on the restart to move up to sixth, before the next yellow flag with four laps to go. Although he was fast on the restart, contact resulted between him and Reinhart, resulting in Reinhart going around.  Gignac was then sent to the tail of the field as an involved car.

Restarting last, he would battle hard, ultimately crossing the finish line in ninth for his ninth top-10 of 2017.

The top-10 was enough to jolt him up to the top of the points standings, nine markers ahead of Chris Milwain entering the final event of 2017.

ADAMS Motorsports and Gignac will be back in action at Peterborough Speedway on October 6 through 8, as part of the track’s Autumn Colours Classic weekend. Stay tuned to OSCAAR’s website (http://www.oscaar.ca) and Peterborough Speedway’s website for details surrounding the event.
