PETERBOROUGH, ON (June 12, 2018)- Some interference by Mother Nature meant things were a couple of weeks late leaving the starting blocks, but the 2018 season at Canada’s Toughest 1/3-Mile Paved Oval is making up for lost time and hitting top speed this weekend with another night of the best motorsports action Central Ontario has to offer.
Head to Peterborough Speedway Saturday, June 16 and check out the return of the exciting APC Pro Late Model Series 100 lapper, along with the hometown Bone Stocks, Trent Lakes Complete Plumbing Renegade Trucks and Trailers Plus Ontario Legends.

“Using everything the fans saw on opening night as a template, it should be another great show,” J.P. Josiasse, track owner and promoter said. “All of our teams were in mid-season form and put together an incredible event from green flag to checkered in every division. We had some impressive car counts across the board and that’s a trend that I can see continuing throughout the year.”
