From Ohsweken Speedway
OHSWEKEN, ON. (May 15, 2018) – This Wednesday’s Lucas Oil Test and Tune has been postponed until Thursday, May 17 due to wet grounds at Ohsweken Speedway.
“The wet weather has made things very difficult this spring,” said speedway owner Glenn Styres. “The rains overnight and early Tuesday morning have put the grounds underwater and the crews cannot get out there to put the final touches on the speedway.”
Practice has been rescheduled for Thursday May 17. All cars competing at Ohsweken in 2018 are welcome to test on the lightning-fast 3/8-mile clay oval, including the track’s four weekly divisions, the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.
The pit gate will open at 5:00pm for competitors at a cost of $25 per driver and $10 per crew member. Cars are scheduled to be on track beginning at6:00pm. Practice will alternate for divisions until 9:30pm.
Due to ongoing construction on the property, the main grandstand will be closed to spectators. Ohsweken fans can watch Lucas Oil Test and Tune night live online free of charge via the track’s Livestream on the Speedway’s website.
