Autism Awareness Night is Next on the Peterborough Speedway Agenda
By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media
When it comes to action and excitement, motorsports enthusiasts are coming to Canada's Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval. With 5 weekly classes and the top touring series in the province, the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road, west of the Liftlock City can satisfy the tastes of the most discerning race fan.
At this point in the 2016 season, close to 90 different drivers have scored points in at least one main event over the venue's handful of regular divisions. Those are some pretty impressive stats that any track would be proud of, but Peterborough Speedway's track owner and promoter J.P. Josiasse says its only part of the story that has been making headlines this year.
"Across the board, our teams understand the value of car preparation and the weekly finishing orders show it," said Josiasse. "From the entry level 4Fun drivers, all the way up to the headline Late Model runners, the action has been exciting from the moment the cars roll from the staging area. The word is getting out and that makes everyone work that much harder to get to victory lane."
With the home track Jiffy Lube Mini Stocks, Renegade Trucks and Earl Ireland Auto Sales Late Models joined by the Can-AM TQ Midgets and INEX Ontario Legends, Saturday, June 25th is Autism Awareness Night at Peterborough Speedway. Pit gates open at 3:00, with the spectator areas unlocked at 5:00 and racing getting underway at 6:00.
Autism Ontario is dedicated to increasing public awareness about autism and the day-to-day issues faced by individuals with autism, their families and the professionals with whom they interact. Their work involves advocacy, government relations and responses to various issues that affect people with autism and their families. The Peterborough Chapter of Autism Ontario has a number of events planned throughout the summer and is always looking for volunteers to offer support and social activities to individuals and their families in Peterborough, Northumberland, Newcastle, Haliburton and the City of Kawartha Lakes.
