Motorsports: A family Adventure
Mike, Vickie and their 2 daughters Ashley and Rachel spend their summers together as a family. The Ogilvie’s aren’t playing board games and or taking a family vacation, the way you might expect, they are tearing up the racetrack, each in their own dragster!
Hailing from Jasper, Ontario, the Ogilvie family are making their love for motorsports, a family affair. The family has been racing competitively all over Northern Ontario & Quebec.
Passion for Speed
What started as a fun past-time for Mike more than 10 years ago, has developed into a family of passionate racers. Mike’s love for speed has become an adrenaline rush for the whole family. Rachel and Ashley have shared Mike’s love for the track from a young age. Only 2 years ago, Vickie, a long-time fan and spectator hopped behind the wheel and felt the rush for herself. With Mike, Vickie and Rachel in full-sized dragsters, Ashley is not far behind. Currently burning rubber in her junior racer for her sixth season. Next year, Ashley will be graduating into a full-size dragster to top-off the unstoppable Ogilvie Motorsports Team. The Ogilvie team’s home racetrack is Luskville Dragway, but the family has competed at Elliot Lake, Mirabel, Naperville & Wawa.
It’s ALL About Family
The Ogilvie’s spend almost every weekend in the summer at the track. For many years, Mike was the only racer in the family, but racing was taking him travelling away from home too often. Unfortunately, his daughters were too young to come along to all of the events. When the girls started frequenting Mike’s races, they were exposed to junior dragsters and immediately persisted their mom and dad to allow then to join in the fun. At ages 13 and 11 the girls hit the junior track and made a huge splash. Ashley is currently in grade 11 and Rachel is studying dietary nutrition at Western University. Rachel is planning to continue her education at the IVEY business school at Western. Her love for racing and passion for her families fast & free past-time, will certainly draw her back to the track during summer breaks.
Looking Forward to A Great 2017 With Ogilvie’s Motorsports
The Ogilvie’s are looking forward to another fast-paced season in 2017. With Ashley suiting up in her full-size dragster in the coming year, the Ogilvie family is sure to be unstoppable. Hoping to hit as many races as possible, the Ogilvie’s will be loading up their double-long trailer and bringing the “fastest family in Ontario” to a track near you.
