    With three top-fives and eight top-10s on the season, it was certainly a solid rookie
    campaign for SMG Motorsports as Sean Grosman finished third in the Dickies OSCAAR
    Outlaws presented by London Recreational Racing points standings.

    While he finished the year strong, it didn’t start off how Grosman would’ve hoped,
    though. He had a strong run going in his OSCAAR debut at his home track, Sunset
    Speedway, when contact with a fellow competitor resulted in a DNF. Though despite not
    scoring the expected finish, the team was pleased with their performance, given that
    Grosman was able to score a heat victory and be the top qualifier.

    The speed and dedication showed in his return to Sunset Speedway a month later, as he
    was able to put the pieces together with a solid run en route to finishing fourth.

    "I felt as though we would be more than capable of running at the front of the field at
    Sunset - and we proved that on Saturday," Grosman said per a press release by Spencer
    Lewis. "The guys that finished ahead of us have quite a few more laps in these cars than I
    do, and if we can continue to improve I think that we'll have even more for them when
    we come back to Sunset at the end of June.

    "We've been fortunate with the way the early-season schedule has worked out. Sunset is,
    without question, our strongest track. We're going to bank as many points here before we
    head out on the road and the real learning curve begins."

    In the pair of return trips to Sunset Speedway, he had another strong run, and another run
    where there was a bit left on the table. He finished ninth in his August appearance after a
    spin early in the race, followed by a fourth in the Velocity 250 in September.

    As Grosman mentioned, the learning curve was going to be going to tracks that he hadn’t
    been to thus far in his career. While there was some struggles, he certainly didn’t falter
    that much with no finishes outside of the top-10.

    The single trips to Delaware Speedway and Flamboro Speedway produced finishes of
    seventh and sixth, respectively, with Grosman admitting afterwards that they missed the
    set-up slightly in their learning process.

    The trip to Sauble Speedway certainly produced some fireworks, though, as Grosman
    was involved in one of the biggest crashes of the season with fellow competitor Shawn
    Chenoweth catching some air. Thankfully, nobody was injured in the crash and despite
    the heavy damage, repairs were able to be made without missing any events.

    With crew chief Ryan Kimball having multiple laps behind the wheel at Peterborough
    Speedway, it was certainly a track circled that could produce success for Grosman. The
    first trip to Peterborough, though, Kimball took the reigns behind the wheel with
    Grosman unable to attend due to a family commitment. The crew chief had a solid
    performance, finishing fourth. Grosman held up his end, though, producing a fourth palce
    finish in August behind the wheel of the No. 29 For Your Eyes Only of Toronto, The
    Landing Strip Gentleman's Club of Toronto, Flagship Properties, SL Promotions and
    Rylex Glass & Mirror Super Late Model. Unfortuantely, the season didn’t end as
    Grosman would’ve hoped with an eighth place finish in October as a result of a mid-race
    incident.

    With solid performances across the season, Grosman proved that he can get the job done
    behind the wheel of a super late model. Look for the Frequent Flyer to post his first
    podium finish quickly in the 2016 season.
