Autism Awareness Night is Next on the Peterborough Speedway Agenda

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.


Full schedule details, along with up to the minute news and results are always available atwww.peterboroughspeedway.com, by liking the track on Facebook or following it on Twitter. You can also download the free Peterborough Speedway app on your Smartphone.

PASS North Back On Track This Weekend At Lee USA Speedway

PASS North Back On Track This Weekend At Lee USA Speedway

-       For Immediate Release


NAPLES, ME (June 21) – After a few weeks off due to rain, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models will be back on track Friday night at Lee USA Speedway in New Hampshire.  Coming in to this weekend's action, nine drivers are in striking distance for the championship, including Tamworth, NH's Jeremy Davis.  While Davis sits ninth in points, the Granite State favorite is not happy with his results, scoring only one top 10 finish so far this season.

            "My season so far has had ups-and-downs," says Davis.  "We've had some bad luck with mechanical issues taking us out of a bunch of races this season.  Lots of big races we were in contention for the win, just bad luck has taken us out.  Like our last race at Lee, we lost the motor fighting for the lead late in the race."

            Last year, Davis finished third to DJ Shaw and Derek Ramstrom for his third straight top five finish.  Coming back to Lee USA Speedway this weekend with PASS North, Davis believes all the ingredients are there to challenge for a win, if luck is on his side.  And it is special, since Davis began attending races there when he was just a week old.

            "I'm excited to get back to Lee, it's one of my favorite tracks," says Davis.  "It's big, fast, and high-banked.  There's not a lot of bite left since the asphalt is worn out, which makes it very challenging.  There's two grooves at Lee, but no one knows which is faster until you try it out that day.  I'm really hoping for some redemption from my bad luck at Lee, but just a turn around in my luck would be good to me."

Another strong field is expected for Friday night's action at Lee USA Speedway including former HP Hood Oxford 250 winners, Ben and Mike Rowe, as well as last year's winner Glen Luce, and former two-time winner, Travis Benjamin.  Former PASS champions, Johnny Clark and DJ Shaw are also entered, along with Matt Matheson, Todd Stone, Derek Ramstrom, and Wyatt Alexander, plus Granite State drivers, Bryan Kruczek, Derek Griffith, and Wayne Helliwell, Jr.

All the action gets under way on Friday at Lee USA Speedway with rotating practice for all competing divisions starting at 4 – 6 PM  Racing gets under way at 7 PM with heat race action followed by features for the PASS North Super Late Models and NASCAR Whelen All-American Series

PASS North Super Late Model entry forms for Lee USA Speedway, the PASS Non-Winners race at Oxford Plains Speedway, and Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, along with the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 entry forms, can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com.

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as the legendary HP Hood Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains Speedway and PASS South's Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway.  For technical information concerning all PASS divisions please send questions topassracing@roadrunner.com.  For media or marketing questions, please contact Alan Dietz at 704-231-2039 oralandietzpass@live.com.  And, don't forget to "Like" the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @PASSSLM14 to keep up with breaking news as it happens.

NASCAR Pinty’s News & Notes: Chaudière

NASCAR Pinty's News & Notes: Chaudière

Teams Ready for Chaudière Part Duex After Postponement


DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – The NASCAR Pinty's Series will return to Autodrome Chaudière after weather forced track officials to postpone the CRS Express 300 at the quarter mile track in Vallee-Jonction, Quebec, two weeks ago.


This make-up event couldn't come at a better time for NASCAR Pinty's Series championship contender Jason Hathaway.


Hathaway is coming off the most recent race for the series at Sunset Speedway with a disappointing 17th-place finish getting involved in an accident that forced him to the pits for extensive repairs.


The St. Thomas, Ontario, native returns to a track he's won at in both previous visits by the touring series.


A victory this Saturday would help get Hathaway back in contention for the championship and also tie him with Andrew Ranger for the most consecutive wins at one track in series history. Ranger accomplished the feat at Circuit de Trois-Rivieres (2008-10) and Circuit ICAR (2012-14).


Hathaway dominated in the inaugural race at Chaudière in 2014, leading 177 laps. Last year he led the final 30 laps and held off pole-sitter Alex Labbe at his home track to score the victory.


Ranger remains the points leader after the first two races of the season as he and Cayden Lapcevich each have 83 points with Ranger on top after winning the season-opener at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park.


RACE: CRS Express 300
PLACE: Autodrome Chaudière, Vallee-Jonction, Que.
DATE: Friday, June 24
TIME: 8 p.m. ET
TELECAST: TSN – July 2 at 12:30 p.m. ET; RDS – July 15 at TBD 
TRACK LAYOUT: .25-mile asphalt oval
2015 POLESITTER: Alex Labbe
2015 RACE WINNER: Jason Hathaway
EVENT SCHEDULE: Practice 12:30-1 p.m., Final Practice 1:20-1:50 p.m., Qualifying 4:15 p.m., Driver Autograph Session 6:45 p.m.

Fast Facts:
The Race:
 The CRS Express 300 will be the third of 12 events on the NASCAR Pinty's schedule, and the first of four trips to the province of Quebec.

The Procedure: The maximum starting field is 24 cars, including provisionals. The first 21 cars will have secured starting positions through two-lap time trials while the remaining three spots will be awarded through the provisional process. The race is scheduled for 300 laps (75 miles) and will have a five-minute midway break at or near the conclusion of Lap 150. This is an impound race with two change tires allowed.

The Track: Autodrome Chaudière held its inaugural Pinty's Series event in 2014. The quarter-mile, high-banked oval opened in 1992 with a dirt racing surface and was paved for the first time in 2005.

Chaudière 300 Notes:
Homecoming for Labbe:
 Alex Labbe won the pole for this event last season and led 109 laps. He's from Victoriaville, Quebec, making Autodrome Chaudière his home track.

Ontario Drivers Perform Well at Quebec Ovals: There have been nine oval races in the province of Quebec in Canadian Tire Series history, and eight of the nine have been won by an Ontario driver. Hathaway has won both previous races at Autodrome Chaudière. There have been seven events at Autodrome St-Eustache with Ontario natives Steckly (4), Kennington and Dave Whitlock picking up the first six wins at the track. Last season Quebec native Andrew Ranger broke through and ending the streak at St-Eustache.

Tagliani Looks For Another Win: Alex Tagliani, fresh off his win at Sunset Speedway will go after his fourth series win and second in as many weeks. All four of Tagliani's wins have come on ovals. The Lachenaie, Quebec native finished fifth in this race last year.

Theetge Set to Drive For Steckly: Donald Theetge will make his third career start in the NASCAR Pinty's Series this Saturday at Autodrome Chaudière. Theetge also joined his brother Benoit and competed in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Challenge at Daytona International Speedway in 2010 finishing third. He'll drive a car owned by four-time NPS champion Scott Steckly. Steckly led a race-high 154 laps last year before being sidelines with mechanical issues.
