MEMBERSHIP HAS ITS PRIVILEGES…. Smackdown2 Racers treated to a first!

When we partnered with RPM Magazine the OGW never imagined what it would turn into. Having one of the few race results type articles featured in the pages of RPM Magazine, Ontario Grudge Wars has grown with RPM magazine so much so that our agreement in 2018 also included featured articles on our racers that attended the Smackdown2. Last month we saw the bad ass raw nitrous ride of Nick Kokkas. This month we see a first ever – 2 Canadian owned cars hitting a cover of RPM Magazine! Ron Fountain’s extremely clean 1968 Camaro and the 1985 Fox of Chris Damovski are true show pieces when it comes to OGW No Time Grudge Cars! 

Congratulations Ron and Chris, this is truly something to be proud of!

 

Ontario Grudge Wars is proud to wear the RPM Mag badging and we will continue to do so through the 2019 season as we bring the Smackdown3 to TMP  together!

OUTLAW RACERS give up the rear tire to ALL Super Street cars!

VS

Dec 14, 2018 – From the Red Room at the Super Secret 3rd floor of the OGW lair.

this just in…. OUTLAW EXTREME Outlaw 10.5 racers give the back tire to all 2018 and 2019 Super Street registered racers.

In a bold move towards our attempt to bring 10.5 and Super Street racers back together one 10.5 racer was over heard saying… “we will give them the back tire”…. the rest is history! 

 

OGW has tried a few times over the past few months to come up with a basic set of rules that would help bring the two classes back to one venue, one class without the normal 13 pages of rules on weights vs power adders. However our best laid plans were put on hold as rumors spread about the lack of scales at TMP.

“OGW headsup classes are run on the 1/8 mile, and we race No Time! Couple this with the hat draw for pairings every round and its no longer all about the top of the ladder racing the bottom! Its about who can get under the other racer’s skin… a little bit of calling out and little bit of skin on the line and all of a sudden we have a bad ass race on our hands!” – OGW director Ian Hill

OUTLAW Extreme is set to be contested at all OGW and QGW points races for 2019. See our website for more info on the rules.

Girotti Machine support Community and the Bigger Picture with OGW

Girotti Machine has been in business for over 65 years. They made a name for themselves in the early years as being the go-to place for one off machining and large machinery repair. Now a days the latest machining centers, fabrication and large fabrication assemblies are how they leave their mark!

Ian’s continual commitment to community is what caught our attention. We came to Ian with a plan that our sponsorship money be specifically used in a way that would got to the bigger picture rather than to payouts or an individual. Within the next few sentences Ian discussed a plan that would see our sponsorship dollars go just this type of plan! We are pleased to be part of the local charity work that Ian does and how he has tied the Ontario Grudge Wars into it – Aaron Tisdelle President.

OGW invited to “TAKE OVER” at All Out Live in August

December 12, 2019 from the deepest darkest dungeon office at the Super Secret Hideout of the OGW

 

Another great opportunity that was confirmed at the PRI show was our involvement with All Out Live at Lapeer Michigan August 11, 2019. Brian Bossone of All Out Live met for dinner with us on the Thursday of PRI and we hit it off great. OGW has been given an opportunity to bring our No Time, Grudge Racing by hat draw type excitement to their event. Ofcourse in true OGW fashion we are naming our event “the Takeover”!

OGW will be hosting 2 classes at this event, which will NOT be part of the series points run. Limited 28s and Real Street will be contested as well as all the fun of the ALL OUT LIVE DAY  that we have all come to know! Call outs, headsup racing and OGW…who could ask for anything more!

OGW is just now putting the details together, but at this point we are looking at 8 OGW Limited 28s cars going down to take on 8 locals for a guaranteed $2000USD top dog purse! Real Street will be open to all to enter, however we are limiting the entry numbers to the first 32 cars that enter which will also be shootoing for a minimum $2000 guarantee to win purse.

Another great deal, is that MotormaniaTV will also be live streaming this event, and because if a little is good, more must be better… come on down on Thursday with us for the Test session, Friday Tom Baileys Cruise in Party and Road Kill Nights Saturday night all before our big day on Sunday August 11th! …oh we are not done yet… you can be sure that this weekend will be super special as its also going to be RPM Magazine’s 20th anniversary party weekend, you can be sure they are going to make this series of events truly over the top!

PRI… bigger than ever!!!

PRI 2018 was a blast. There were so many new vendors, that the show expanded into just about every hallway in and around the 3 main halls (yes there was a new one added in the far back left corner off the yellow hall!!! I didn’t even get around to see everything!!! WOW!

We had some great meetings with manufacturers and suppliers as well saw some great new and updated products. Once again the Street Outlaws of Oklahoma were well represented as was the Outlaw 10.5/ RvW classes, especially with the display showing off Fletcher Cox’ new bad ass mustang RvW drag car.
