6th ANNUAL “VILLAGE PIZZA – OHSWEKEN SHOOTOUT” TO HAVE A NEW LOOK

From Ohsweken Speedway

When the Village Pizza – Ohsweken Shootout takes to the track to kick off weekend action September 17 / 18, 2010 for the 6th Annual “Arrow Express – Canadian Sprint Car Nationals”, fans will have a look at the best that all affiliate sanctioning bodies have to offer. For the first time, affiliate sanctioning bodies that do not have a chance to race a standalone show during the season at Ohsweken will be given an opportunity to hold a qualifier within their own region and send two representatives to the Shootout. Previously, each affiliate who held a standalone show during the season at Ohsweken would qualify the top three regulars as they crossed the finish line for the Shootout. The new format will give all affiliates an opportunity to select a race on their schedule as their qualifier and send their top two finishing regulars. “It opens the door for sanctioning bodies such as the NRA from Ohio or the Edmonton based ASCS CAN West Region to get in on the action” stated race organizer Ken Pelkie. “The race will now potentially have fourteen entries and remain 10 laps with $500 US going to the winner. The starting line-up will be determined by an “Outlaw Style” draw on the front stretch as part of the weekends opening ceremonies” Pelkie concludes.

The 6th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals are scheduled to take place at Ohsweken Speedway on Saturday, September 18, 2010”. The Shootout will be first up as the cars gather for “The Night Before The Nationals” on Friday, September 17th.

The Friday portion of the weekend will once again feature the “Village Pizza – Ohsweken Shootout” for the sixth year along with a pair of 15 lap “A” Main’s that will guarantee the winners a position in the Saturday feature starting grid. Also on the Friday night card will be the fourth annual, Dave MacLeod Memorial – Mr. Sprint Car Challenge” which has proved to be a popular addition to the program since 2007.
