On Saturday, September 2, the five weekly classes at Peterborough Speedway, plus, the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series, will decide the 2017 titles during the Championship Clash at Canada’s Toughest 1/3-Mile Paved Oval. An incredible regular schedule of action will see its final curtain as the 50th Anniversary Season comes to a close.
Battlefield Equipment Rental 4Fun teams will do their best to prevent current point leader Jeremy Kelly from pushing his #80 machine to a second straight crown. Jiffy Lube Mini Stock point leader Noel Snow hopes to claim a first career honour, as will Tim Burke in the Trent Lakes Complete Plumbing Renegade Truck pack. Anthony DiBello wants a spot at the top of the Thunder Car heap for the third time in four seasons, while Tyler Betts faces some stiff competition in a quest to have his name on the Organics & Glass Late Model championship trophy for the first time.
In the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series, two-time main event winner Brad Stevenson hopes to punctuate his strong year with an overall title.
“There will be a lot going-on all night. Our scorers and officials will have their calculators and computers working overtime to figure-out the results,” said Peterborough Speedway’s owner/promoter J.P. Josiasse. “Winning a track championship is already an impressive honour, but taking the title during the 50th Anniversary Season will be quite an accomplishment.”
To wrap-up the 2017 regular season, on Saturday, September 2 the pit gates will open at 1:00 with the spectator grandstands unlocked at 3:00 and the first green flag set for 5:00. In addition to the regular night’s program of qualifying heats and feature events, each of Peterborough Speedway’s weekly racing divisions will run an exciting Top 10 Shootout.
