Story By: JIM CLARKE / PETERBOROUGH SPEEDWAY – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – Right out of the box, the Junior Late Model division became a fan favourite at Canada’s Toughest 3rd Mile Oval.
Building on a solid foundation that saw more than a dozen of the talented young speedsters take the green flag during the 2022 line-up, Peterborough Speedway officials are pleased to announce that Kingsway Auto Centre will once again be the title sponsor for the track’s newest racing division. Track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says he’s happy to have Dwight Lavoie and the Kingsway Auto Centre team continue as a marketing partner of one of the track’s regular classes.
