Close to a dozen different racing divisions are getting ready to tackle Canada’s Toughest 3rd Mile Oval. The 30th annual APC Autumn Colours Classic, presented by Toronto Motorama will take the green flag October 6th through 8th at Peterborough Speedway.
Action gets underway Friday night with opening qualifying rounds. Preliminary heats for the Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stock, SwitchTire Mini Stock, Jiffy Lube Super Stock, Legend Car, OSCAAR Modifieds and Hot Rods will take centre stage and help set the field for Sunday afternoon’s main events.
The first night of this year’s APC Autumn Colours Classic will also include heat races and a feature event to determine the 2023 GEN-3 Electrical Ontario Modifieds Racing Series champion, as well as the first-ever Non-Winners Races for the Mini Stock and Super Stock divisions. Grandstand gates open at 5:00, with the weekend’s first green flag at 6:00.
Central Ontario’s only 3-day fall racing festival continues Saturday with a 3:30 start for the second round of qualifying. The first of the weekend’s 30-lap Canadian Legend Car features, plus heat races and features for the Kingsway Auto Centre Junior Late Model and Outlaw Midget teams will share the spotlight. The docket will also include last-chance Bone Stock and Mini Stock qualifiers along with KOD Disposal Late Model time trials for the Electric City 167.
