Peterborough Speedway Regroups After Weather Forces Cancellation

All the planning in the world can’t create a great night of hometown racing when Mother Nature has other ideas. Despite their best intentions, track officials at Peterborough Speedway were forced to cancel the Saturday, May 25th program after a storm front rolled through Central Ontario.


Action will now continue with the Bone Stock, Mini Stock and Late Model divisions, plus the Ontario Legend Car Series and Outlaw Midgets on the program for a 6:00 start Saturday, June 1st. Fans of the home track Super Stock, Renegade Truck and Junior Late Model classes are advised that they will be part of the June 8th Double Toonie/Fan Appreciation Night. Ontario Modifieds Racing Series events are on the Saturday, July 6th line-up.


“In a perfect world, we’d run every event on the schedule exactly as we would expect,” said Peterborough Speedway track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse. “Sadly, Mother Nature isn’t a race fan as evident by the fact that nearly every track in the province was forced to cancel their programs as well. The best we can do is get the word out to our fans, racers and staff, while keeping a positive attitude as we move forward.”


On the subject of moving forward, track supporters will take the next step toward Making Memories for Life with the year’s first Double Toonie/Fan Appreciation Night, with $4.00 spectator grandstand admission – presented by Pepsi – Saturday, June 8th. The KOD Disposal sponsored APC Late Model 100 and Dayco Super Stock 50, with the local Bone Stocks and Renegade Trucks is on the calendar for Saturday, June 15th.


Peterborough Speedway will once again host its Autism Awareness Night, in support of CNAF, the Canadian National Autism Foundation – with the home track Bone Stock, Renegade Truck, Super Stock and Junior Late Model classes, plus the TQ Midgets – Saturday, June 22nd.


In its 55th consecutive season of weekly operation, Peterborough Speedway officials have earned a reputation for providing Central Ontario fans with great value for their family motorsports entertainment dollar. With an annual schedule of the best in home track racing and special guest divisions, the venue has created an atmosphere that traditionally offers a calendar of at least 15 action-packed shows. Of course, every season culminates with the annual running of the APC Autumn Colours Classic. This year’s 31st edition of the Super Bowl of Stock Car Racing takes the Great Canadian RV green flag October 11th through 13th.
