(June 9, 2011) – Ohsweken Speedway’s 16th season began last week with round one of Friday Night Thunder, featuring the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Cars, Lighthouse Tattoos Thunder Stocks, HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, and Pierced Parts Bombers. They’ll be back this Friday, June 10 along with the first visit of the season by the Mod-Lite Stars Championship North Tour.
Friday is “Youth Uniform Night” at Ohsweken, with all parents/guardians of kids in uniform (sports, brownies/scouts, etc.) receiving half price admission. Kids in uniform will also have a chance to half their picture taken in the Engine Pro Racing Winner’s Circle with a Friday Night Thunder feature winner.
Kyle Moffit dominated the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car feature last week, while Larry Czinege, Jr. won the Lighthouse Tattoos Thunder Stock race, Karl Sault won both a heat race and feature in his HRW Mini Stock debut, and Rodney Rutherford topped the list in Pierced Parts Bomber action.
Paul Klager won two of three Mod-Lite features held at Ohsweken in 2010, and is always the man to beat when the Stars North Tour is in town. Derek Moore also collected a Mod-Lite feature win at the track last year.
