Story By: JIM CLARKE / PETERBOROUGH SPEEDWAY – PETERBOROUGH, ONT – Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval has been thrilling motorsports enthusiasts across Central Ontario for more than half a century. As the promotional team adds the finishing touches to the 51st consecutive season of action, Peterborough Speedway has put together several season ticket packages to help fans catch every second of the exciting 2018 schedule.
“A weekly trip to the speedway is part of the same routine as going to the grocery store for some families,” J.P. Josiasse, track owner/promoter said. “We’ve had people sitting in the same seats every Saturday night for years. They bring their kids and then their kids start bringing kids. Racing is a sport for the generations and that level of support and loyalty needs to be rewarded.”
A Season Pass – good for 16 regular nights of action including the 100 APC Pro Late Model event and Championship Clash – is just $180. That’s a saving of $48. The Super Pass – with everything included in the Season Pass, plus the 26th Autumn Colours Classic – is only $225. $63 off the regular grandstand admission. Fans can also pick-up a bundle of 10 general admission passes for $130. $20 off the regular price. To learn more, select ‘season passes’ from the Fan Info drop-down menu at www.peterboroughspeedway.com or call 705.743.5880.
Again this year, the weekly divisions at the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City will run extra distance main events. The Late Models will be first on the agenda, with a 50-lap feature Saturday, June 2nd. Jiffy Lube Mini Stock and Super Stock teams take their turn June 23rd and July 7th, respectively; followed by the Battlefield Equipment Rental Bone Stocks on Saturday, August 11th.
