Ontario Legends Series Grows Stronger as Season Opener Gets Closer

It started with a whisper but like most great stories, the volume increased as more and more people heard the news. Now, it seems like the 2018 Trailers Plus Ontario Legends Series schedule is the only thing the provincial motorsports community can talk about. The new season gets underway Saturday, May 19th at Peterborough Speedway. Tour spokesperson Andrew McFadden – along with Jeff Drimmie and Kevin Foisy – says this year’s combined east-west calendar could be the biggest news in series history.


“We’ve put together a program that lets teams race where they want, when they want,” Andrew McFadden said. “They can criss-cross the province or stay in their own neighbourhood. There are no conflicting dates from opening night until the championship crowning checkered flag at the Autumn Colours Classic. Ideally, every driver will want to follow the entire schedule, but we’re open to any decision the individual teams want to make.”


McFadden says the flexible agenda – that allows drivers to accumulate valuable INEX regional points at every event they run – has a created new interest in the Trailers Plus Ontario Legends Series. This year’s season opener is still about a week away and already more than 30 teams have pre-registered for the 2018 series, with several new teams expected to be announced soon.


There are several back-to-back events on the schedule, but the marquee dates are Friday, July 13th at Kawartha Speedway and Saturday, July 14th at Peterborough Speedway for the inaugural running of the Ontario Legends Asphalt Nationals. McFadden says series officials wouldn’t be shocked to see some out of province invaders attempt to crack the starting line-up.


“We had some gate crashers show-up at a couple of shows last year, including Michigan’s Gregory Rudzik taking the season-ending Autumn Colours Classic win and North Carolina’s Randy Gunton making a Peterborough Speedway start on his racing vacation.”
