@PtboSpeedway •@UnitedLMSeries •Peterborough, ON (July 11, 2016)- Mother Nature may have washed out the latest attempt at Toonie Grandstand Admission/Fan Appreciation Night, but her efforts did nothing to dampen the spirits or the enthusiasm of supporters at Canada’s Toughest 1/3-Mile Paved Oval. Peterborough Speedway is next scheduled to host the return of the APC Pro Late Model Series – along with the home track Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun, Trent Lakes Complete Plumbing Renegade Truck and Paul Davis Systems Thunder Car divisions – Saturday, July 16.
In just its second season of operation, the travelling APC Pro Late Model show has been bringing strong car counts and solid shows to venues across the province. The upcoming date at the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City will have a significant local presence with Cavan’s Dan McHattie – who scored a runner-up finish earlier in the year – as well as Warkworth’s Derek Lynch – who is also doing a part-time schedule on the NASCAR Pinty’s Series – and Thunder Car graduate Willie Reyns, from Port Hope, Ontario are expected to be in the starting grid and chasing a checkered flag in the 100 lap main event. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse – who pulled on his racing gear and made the starting field in his own #24J machine last year – says he understands why fans look forward to seeing this show.
“The grid is made-up from some of the best Late Model stock car pilots from a number of different tracks to compete on the same stage,” said Josiasse. “These are drivers that our fan base has heard about over the years and to have them compete here at Peterborough Speedway is very exciting. Every driver who rolls through our pit gate will be looking to add a very prestigious event win to their resume.”
For the Saturday, July 16 return of the APC Pro Late Model Series at Peterborough Speedway, pit gates will open at 2:00, with the spectator grandstands unlocked at 4:00 and the first on track action at 5:00.
Looking ahead on the calendar finds the Country 105 Mid Summer Bash – with Mini Stock, Renegade Truck, Thunder Car, Late Model and Ontario Modifieds Racing Series action – Saturday, July 23rd. The month concludes with the Touring Chase for the Autumn Colours Classic Pole Qualifier – Saturday, July 30th – featuring the OSCAAR Super Late Models, Modifieds, Midgets and Pro Midgets; along with 4Fun and Mini Stocks.
