PETERBOROUGH, ON (February 10, 2019)- Anticipation continues to build as motorsports fans look forward to the 52nd consecutive schedule of action at Peterborough Speedway. The tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road is Central Ontario’s Saturday night site for short track racing excitement. Once again this year, several touring series will join the home track fan favourites for another season. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says its part of the commitment to give the crowds what they want.
“We hear from people through our social media platforms and talk to the fans at the pre-season events we’re part of,” Josiasse said. “The crowds who come through the main gates week-after-week help our promotional team put together a winning schedule. Our regular runners are some of the best in the business and adding the travelling series to the mix provides some extra pieces for the puzzle.”
Peterborough Speedway puts out the welcome mat for special guests right off the bat; starting with the first of this year’s seven events for the Trailers Plus Eastern Ontario Legends to kick-off the 2019 season on Saturday, May 18. A week after this year’s Country 105 opener, the Ontario Modifieds, OSCAAR Pro Sprints and Ontario Pro Challenge Series will make their debut. OMRS has six dates on the schedule at the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 1/3-Mile Paved Oval, while Pro Sprint and Pro Challenge teams will be part of a pair of shows.
The Can-AM TQ Midgets are booked for a Saturday, June 22 date, with the OSCAAR Hot Rod Series making its Peterborough Speedway debut on July 6. The always popular Canadian Concrete Expo Ontario Outlaw Super Late Models are on the schedule for Saturday, July 20. OSCAAR Modifieds have a regular season show on August 3, while this year’s Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series 100 lapper will join the Saturday, August 10 agenda.
“In addition to their regular season appearances, all three OSCAAR divisions will be part of the 27th annual running of the Autumn Colours Classic on Thanksgiving weekend,” said J.P. Josiasse. “The Trailers Plus Eastern Ontario Legends Series will also crown its 2019 tour champion during our year-end spectacular.”
The complete track schedule will be released during the Motorama Custom Car and Motorsports Expo – March 8 to 10 – at the International Centre in Toronto.
