PETERBOROUGH, ON (August 5, 2018)- Peterborough Speedway’s entry level racing division has posted some very impressive numbers throughout the 2018 campaign. With about a month remaining in the regular season, close to 45 different drivers have scored points in the Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stock class at the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 1/3-Mile Paved Oval. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says that no matter how you look at it, that’s something everyone can be proud of.
“This has always been a very competitive class; one that provides some tight battles and thrills the fans week after week,” Josiasse said. “I’d put our teams up against a similar field anywhere in the province. The point standings are extremely close, with a gap of less than 100 markers between first and fifth. With some good luck on the track, everything can change in the blink of an eye.”
