Asphalt comes to clay in a Vantastic Night of Racing This Saturday!

The race card is packed with excitement as Campbellford Chrysler and Greig Truck & Trailer host the Knightwork Design Hot Rod Series at Brighton Speedway this Saturday, July 13th.  With the Bainer’s OilGARD Anti Rust Canadian Modifieds, Brighton Automotive Thunder Stocks, Bill’s Johns Comp 4/Mini Stocks, Quinte Septic Stingers and the Gord’s Water Vantastics, fans will find the entertainment astounding.

The night will kick off with the induction of three new members to the Brighton Speedway Wall of Fame.  Each year the selection committee considers the submissions put forth by fans, drivers and sponsors and chooses three candidates that have contributed to the growth and development of Brighton Speedway and motorsports within our community.  The 2019 Inductees are Jeff Waite, Gord Langstaff and Tim Whitehead.  The ceremony will begin following Hot Laps in the courtyard and all are welcome to attend.

Following the Wall of Fame presentations, we will kick start a night of racing and see how well the pavement drivers can contend on the dirt.  There is a dozen expected drivers from the OSCAAR Racing club participating, including Stephen Mayhew in the #137.  Mayhew started his racing career at Brighton in the 6 Cylinder Division back in the 1970’s.  Also joining him will be a newcomer to dirt, Bob Parsons in the No. 66.  Parson’s in his Valiant race car has turned 1000’s of laps on pavement but come this Saturday night it will be his first on the clay.  Promoter Dave Gainforth has been a staunch supporter of motorsports within our community and a fan of Brighton Speedway since his youth. We look forward to joining in presenting the OSCAAR’s on dirt once again.

Front Gates will open at 5:00 PM, Hot Laps will hit the track at 6:00 PM and the Wall of Fame Inductions will follow.  The Green Flag will fly at 7:00 PM with six divisions of stock car excitement.  Grandstand admission with be; Adults $12.00 Youths & Seniors $10.00 Children 7-12 $3.00 Family Pass $28 Children 6 & Under Free.   All tickets are available at the Front Gate.
