“The pandemic has played havoc with our scheduling but like in the days leading-up to any season opener, our team will be working hard to get everything ready,” said track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse. “Soon we’ll get to race for real. Our fans and racers are excited to be returning to action. Its been a long time coming, but we’re all sure that it’ll be well worth the wait.”
The first of the two shows will include the Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stock, Jiffy Lube Mini Stock, KOD Disposal Super Stock and Trailers Plus Ontario Legend divisions. The second date will have the Bone Stock, Mini Stock and Legends, along with the Ontario Midgets; a collaborative effort between the OSCAAR Pro Sprint and Outlaw Midget classes. Each event will have a next day rain date if necessary. On-line registration is now open at www.peterboroughspeedway.com for the Mini Stock, Super Stock and Ontario Midget divisions.
Josiasse says that things will be a little different when the track opens-up for these 2 shows, with provincial government protocol designed to keep everyone safe being a high priority as they prepare for the green flag. Officials are working through a checklist that includes the most recent requirements for things like contact tracing and social distancing.
Josiasse went on to say that officials are looking to make decision on Autumn Colours is expected in the near future. The goal is to have some sort of event Thanksgiving Weekend, subject to government restrictions.
