PETERBOROUGH, ON (July 30, 2019)- Nothing matches the thrills and excitement of the Hot August Nights Racing Series at Peterborough Speedway. The final month of the 2019 regular season at the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road is packed with close point battles and special events as things wind-down for another year at Central Ontario’s favourite place to race.
The popular five-race homestretch kicks-off Saturday, August 3 as the OSCAAR Modifieds and Pro Sprints join the Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stock and Jiffy Lube Mini Stock divisions. Also on the show will be a 30 ‘A’ main for the KOD Disposal Super Stocks that will serve as a qualifier for the Canadian Short Track Nationals at Jukasa Motor Speedway. The night gets underway with a free, pre-race corn roast.
“Across the board, the point standings in our weekly divisions are tighter than they’ve been in years,” said Peterborough Speedway owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse. “Our teams have been battling hard all season long and the next five weeks will determine who gets their name engraved on the championship trophies at the end of the year.”
For the Saturday, August 3 show, pit gates will open at 2:00, with the general admission grandstands unlocked at 4:00 and the night’s first green flag scheduled for 6:00.
There is still plenty of exciting action ahead of the Saturday, August 31st Championship Clash.
