The Canada Day lineup will include a 75 lap Late Model feature, a 40 lap Thunder Car race, a 30 lap Mini Stock main, and a 30 lap Four Fun race. The day will also mark the debut of the new OSCAAR Modified Series at the high-banked, one-third-mile oval.

Additionally, the third and four-place finishers in each Canada Day main will be guaranteed a 13th and 14th-place (respectively) starting spot at Autumn Colours, with the option to advance their spots through the heat races, in October.
