There’s No Place Like Home Track Racing at Peterborough Speedway

With a solid line-up of weekly classes and special guest divisions, Central Ontario motorsports fans are looking forward to the 2024 schedule and Making Memories for Life at Peterborough Speedway.


Action kicks-off with the Pure Country 105 Season Opener – featuring free spectator grandstand admission – Saturday, May 18th. The green flag flies at 5:00 on a line-up that includes Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stock, SwitchTire Mini Stock, Trent Lakes Complete Plumbing Renegade Truck, Jiffy Lube Super Stock and KOD Disposal Late Model racing, plus the Trailers Plus Ontario Legend Car Series, with a Fan Appreciation driver autograph session at intermission.


“The long hours and hard work of the off-season come to fruition when we unlock the gates on opening night,” said Peterborough Speedway track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse. “We’re looking forward to a strong season of action and can’t wait to get everything started for our 2024 campaign.”


With a legacy spanning close to 60 consecutive years of weekly operation, it is ironic that one of the most popular divisions at the venue known as Canada’s Toughest 3rd Mile is also one of its newest. Since its inception just over 2 years ago, the Kingsway Auto Centre Junior Late Model class continues to grow.


In 2023, a stellar field showed their stuff throughout the regular season and during the annual Autumn Colours Classic showcase. Lucas Cousineau scored the point championship in the Pro Junior Late Model ranks, while Avery Kirkpatrick took the Junior Late Model crown. In total, nearly 25 different racers made at least one start in the class during the year. With 9 appearances on the schedule for the upcoming campaign and new drivers expected to join the fray, it is expected that fans will continue to cheer on these talented young drivers.


Bullring bullet points: In response to numerous inquiries, track staff has announced dates for a pair of pre-season open test sessions. The first will be Saturday, May 11th from 11:00 ‘til 4:00. Teams can also put their equipment through its paces Thursday, May 16th from 4:00 ‘til dusk. Admission for either practice session will be $25.00 for car and driver. $15.00 per crew member.
