Story By: JIM CLARKE / PETERBOROUGH SPEEDWAY – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – Everyone is more focused on finding a great deal for their dollar than ever before and the best buy in family motorsports entertainment comes your way this weekend at Canada’s Toughest 3rd Mile Oval. Pepsi presents the year’s final Double Toonie/Fan Appreciation Night – Saturday, August 13th – at Peterborough Speedway.
Take in a great evening of racing with the Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stock, Jiffy Lube Mini Stock, Trent Lakes Complete Plumbing Renegade Truck, Late Model, Kingsway Auto Centre Junior Late Model and GEN-3 Electrical Ontario Modifieds Racing Series divisions. General admission spectator grandstand passes are just $ 4.00. Tickets can be ordered in advance through the ‘buy tickets’ option on the track website or as a ‘cash only’ transaction from the walk-up trackside ticket booth on raceday.
“Our Double Toonie Nights are some of most popular events on our annual schedule,” said track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse. “To have this one on the calendar – with less than a handful of dates remaining on the regular season schedule – is the perfect prescription for a terrific night of racing as we get close to wrapping-up our 55th consecutive year of weekly Saturday night motorsports excitement.”
Josiasse says a quick check of the point standings in the Bone Stock field shows less than a 100 point difference between 1st and 5th positions. More than 20 drivers have scored points in at least 1 event. The Mini Stock class has had close to 25 different runners make at least 1 start and there is a 50 point margin separating the leader and 5th place in the running order. Nearly a dozen Renegade Truck teams have turned laps during the 2022 schedule, with a gap of just over 65 points between 1st and 5th. Peterborough Speedway’s Late Model teams have logged some impressive performances this year and several of the top runners in the standings are within striking distance of the leader as the pack heads into the final events on the line-up.
