OHSWEKEN, Ont. (September 6, 2016) — Ohsweken Speedway officials are pleased to announce a purse increase and special format for the Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Car division at the Burger Barn Night Before the Nationals on Friday, September 16.

The “602 Challenge” will pay the A-Feature winner $1,000, while each of the A-Feature starters will receive a minimum of $200. The Crate Sprint Car portion of the program on the Friday of Canadian Sprint Car Nationals weekend will include group time trials and a 20 lap A-Feature.

The fastest driver in qualifications will earn the $100 Ackland Insurance “Top Gun” Award, and be the first to set a time trial track record for the Crate Sprint Car division at Ohsweken. The top four drivers in qualifications will all have a chance to increase the winner’s payout to $1,602, if they accept the “602 Challenge” of starting at the tail of the A-Feature grid!
