Story By: JIM CLARKE / PETERBOROUGH SPEEDWAY – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – Central Ontario’s favourite family fun is a night of short track stock car excitement at Canada’s Toughest 3rd Mile Oval.
Peterborough Speedway’s new season takes its next green flag Saturday, June 3rd with the home track Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stock, SwitchTire Mini Stock and KOD Disposal Late Model, along with the Trailers Plus Canadian Legend Car Series and Outlaw Midgets. Kid’s Rides will be the special intermission feature. Pit gates will open at 2:30, with grandstand admission at 5:00 and the night’s first qualifying heat at 6:00.
“Ironically, 2 of the 3 home track divisions in the line-up for the next show were scheduled to be part of the originally scheduled season opener from Saturday, May 20th,” said track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse. “The Bone Stock and Late Model teams will make their first starts of 2023, as will the Canadian Legend Car Series runners. That’ll give all of our regular classes some race night track time as we head into the summer portion of the season.”
Josiasse says that the new faces in each division and fresh paint schemes on the rides of some returning drivers are just a couple of the changes fans can expect to see this year. New sponsors have been added to some of the weekly classes and APC Auto Parts Centres will take over as the title backer for the season-ending Autumn Colours Classic,
Passes for all Peterborough Speedway events are available in advance by using the ‘buy tickets’ option on the speedway website. Tickets are also available as a ‘cash only’ transaction at the walk-up trackside ticket booth on raceday.
Enjoy a great night of the kind of hometown racing that has making headlines for nearly 60 years and offering fans delicious pub grub, including fresh cut fries along with homestyle burgers, hot dogs and sausage…and new this year, the Turn 4 Beer Garden.
