PETERBOROUGH, ON (July 24, 2018)- There’s some hot summertime fun brewing at Canada’s Toughest 1/3-Mile Paved Oval. Central Ontario’s hometown racing experience roars back to life Saturday, July 28th with the Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stock, Jiffy Lube Mini Stock, Super Stock and Late Model divisions; plus the Trailers Plus Ontario Legends Series – with kid’s rides at intermission – at Peterborough Speedway.
“Its hard to believe that we’ll wrap-up another month of the 2018 regular season schedule this weekend,” said track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse. “We’ve had so much going on since the very first Great Canadian RV green flag of the year and every lap our weekly racers and special guest classes turn brings us another step closer to the 26th annual running of the Autumn Colours Classic.”
Saturday the 28th, pit gates will open at 2:30 with the general admission grandstand unlocked at 5:00 and racing scheduled for a 6:00 start. Looking ahead on the calendar, the Hot August Nights Series gets underway Saturday, August 4th as the OSCAAR Modified Tour rolls into town for a 40 lap ‘A’ main, along with the Bone Stock, Mini Stock, Super Stock divisions and the OSCAAR Pro Midgets; plus a pre race corn roast.
The Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup Series returns Saturday, August 11th. Also on the program will be a 60 lap Bone Stock feature, Mini Stocks, Renegade Trucks, Late Models and timed spectator laps for King of the Hill. Check the track web-site and social media platforms for complete schedule details and start times.
Across the board, there have been memorable events and special moments for teams in Peterborough Speedway’s regular divisions including main event victories by Chris Tubman, Nolan Gould, Marlie Owen and James Horner. Super Stock racer Tim Burke has a guaranteed starting spot and is slated to represent the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road during the Canadian Short Track Nationals in September at Jukasa Motor Speedway.
