The 2020 season has not been at all what we anticipated but with the support of our dedicated drivers, sponsors and the racing community the events that have been held at Brighton Speedway have been excellent.  The 1/3rd mile clay oval on the shores of Lake Ontario, between Toronto and Kingston has only hosted four races to date amidst the restrictions placed on motorsports facilites during the COVID 19 pandemic.  The dedication and resilience of the drivers is unquestionable, as they draw together to enjoy their hobby and add some action to an otherwise unprecedented experience.

As the 2020 schedule was modified promoters Mark & Angie Rinaldi were continuously faced with challenges from the Provincial Government.  Deciding to run with limitations on spectators means that marquee events such as the Applefest Shootout had to adjusted.  The result is a “Lite” version of the usual weekend with action packed racing scheduled for Saturday, September 19th.  The DIRTcar Sportsman series 35 Lap $1000 to Win Feature will sit at the top of the race card and these drivers look forward to this event year after year.   The Vanderlaan Building Products Late Model division is set for 40 Laps $1000 to win and open to both Crate and Open motors.  The Bainer’s OilGARD Anti Rust Canadian Modifieds are 35 Laps and $1000 to win Danny Reid Memorial Race and open to UMP Modifieds.   Brighton Automotive Thunder Stocks will do 30 Laps for $500 to win, the Bill’s Johns Comp 4 Mini Stock Open Race is 25 Laps and $350 win.  To round out the race card, the Eastern Ontario Vintage Stock Car Club will do 20 Laps and feature cars from the 50’s – 60’s and 70’s 80’s.
