With the arrival of spring about a month away, officials with the Eastern Ontario Vintage Stock Car Club have released a tentative version of the group’s 2023 schedule.
Early indications show 16 dates on this year’s line-up, with the opening green flag set for Saturday, May 13 at Brockville Ontario Speedway. There will also be events at Cornwall Motor Speedway and a return to Can Am Speedway on the agenda, before a Western swing with shows Friday, June 30 at Ohsweken Speedway and a Canada Day spotlight on Saturday, July 1 at Merrittville Speedway. Both shows will be run in conjunction with the Niagara Vintage Racing Series.
“Our drivers and teams are looking forward to getting back on the track for a new season,” said E.O.V.S.C.C. spokesperson and race director Steve Billings. “For the first time in the club’s history, we’ll have a triple-header weekend – Friday, June 9 to Sunday, June 11 – at Can Am, Brockville and Cornwall. The Can Am event is the first of a pair of dates in New York State, that also includes a Friday, September 16 stop at Mohawk International Raceway.”
Patrick Charland will be chasing his third straight championship in the 50’s/60’s class, with Jason Riddell coming back to defend his title in a very competitive 70’s/80’s division. Billings also says that club officials are thankful to Paul Kirkland and the team at Brockville Ontario Speedway for having the group on-hand for both nights of this year’s edition of the Dirt Outlaw Apparel/King Edward Auto Parts Northeast Fall Nationals, to decide the 2023 point crowns.
