From Ohsweken Speedway
Ohsweken, ONT — (May 26th, 2011) — Yet again, heavy precipitation continuing all week has forced Ohsweken Speedway track management to delay the Season Opener set for May 27 to Friday night, June 3rd. With saturated grounds and work on the track nearly impossible, the
decision was an easy one although painful to make.
“This has got to stop soon” exclaimed Ohsweken Promoter Glenn Styres in making the call. “We are just as anxious to get going as the teams and fans are but it just can’t be done. We just hope that it is getting all the rain out of its system now
and we have a great season once we do get underway”.
“In what will be the third attempt, the entire opening night of racing will now be run on June 3rd” according to Director of Racing Operations Ken Pelkie. “ENGLER MACHINE AND TOOL will be joined by “GRISDALE RACING PRODUCTS” as the
sponsors of “BRING A NEIGHBOUR NIGHT” featuring the first round toward the season long point championship races for PIERCED PARTS BOMBERS, HRW AUTOMOTIVE MINI STOCKS, Lighthouse TATTOOS’ THUNDER STOCKS and
CORR/Pak SPRINTS. The evening will also mark the first of five appearances this season of the Vintage Cars and will conclude with a 25 lap Sprint feature. AS AN ADDED BONUS, EVERYONE BRINGING A FRIEND WITH THEM TO THE TRACK ON
JUNE 3rd WILL ENJOY BOTH YOU AND YOUR FRIEND BEING ADMITTED TO THE SPECTATOR SEATING AREA FOR THE PRICE OF ONE” Pelkie concluded.
All Race Teams please note that the free admission offer to all the race teams in our four regular divisions will also be delayed one week and will now take place on June 10th. “As we announced last week, we will be offering a unique opportunity
for the race teams to host their sponsors at the track for a night of racing at no cost” Pelkie explains. “All that is required to obtain free Pit Admission for two of any and all of your teams sponsors whose business name appears on your race car
is to submit a list of your sponsors names to Ken on Friday, June 3rd and you will be given two passes for each business on that list for the June 10th show. It is absolutely free with no catches. The only stipulation is that no minors under 13 can be
admitted to the Pit and everyone needs to sign a waiver. This offer is for June 10th only at this time however if the response is favorable we will look at repeating this later in the season. We apologize for the one week delay and hope that
everyone can take advantage of this opportunity to showcase your product that your sponsors have invested in” Pelkie concluded.
