Story By: JIM CLARKE / PETERBOROUGH SPEEDWAY – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – These days you’d be hard-pressed to find a night of family entertainment for just $4.00, but that’s exactly what Peterborough Speedway has to offer – Saturday, June 10th – when Pepsi presents the year’s first Double Toonie Fan Appreciation Night.
Pit gates will open at 1:30, with the grandstands unlocked at 4:00. The green flag is set to fly at 5:00, with an evening of home track racing featuring the Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stock, SwitchTire Mini Stock, Trent Lakes Complete Plumbing Renegade Truck, Jiffy Lube Super Stock and Kingsway Auto Centre Junior Late Model divisions. At intermission, cars will be brought to the front stretch for a meet and greet autograph session with the drivers, just before the night’s main events roll from the staging area.
“These shows are always a hit with the fans and racers,” Peterborough Speedway track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse explained. “Drivers in every division have supporters in the grandstand and the Fan Appreciation Nights are a great opportunity to meet their favourite and show how much what they do is valued.”
While its still early in the 2023 schedule at Canada’s Toughest 3rd Mile Oval, fans have already seen some exciting action from the track’s familiar faces and newcomers alike. Car counts have been strong across the board and it promises to be a solid season for the popular Central Ontario motorsports facility.
