Brighton Speedway Reveals 2015 Schedule

By Clayton Johns

BRIGHTON (March 13) – Brighton Speedway is pleased to announce its 2015 weekly racing schedule with 23 nights of affordable family action in the dirt.

Brighton Speedway is at the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo at the International Centre in Toronto this weekend, March 13-15. Be sure to visit to get your copy of the schedule and see Charlie Sandercock’s 2015 late model.

WoO_LM_3-11The return of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series on June 20 highlights the 2015 schedule. The Outlaws last visited Brighton on the same date in 2013 when Darrell Lanigan of Union, KY won the Excel Tower Service 50. The Vanderlaan Building Products and Dibbits Excavating Mud Slingin’ 50 presented by Excel Tower Service will feature some of the top dirt late model talent in North America. Advance ticket information will be made available in the coming months.

The weekly racing schedule kicks off on May 2 with the Monster Energy and Kellogg Belleville Season Opener. Fan admission for opening night is just $2 with donation of a non-perishable food item.

The 2015 season will once again end with the Part Source Applefest Shootout weekend presented by Small Engine Fuels and Cool 100. The full weekend event will feature a 50-lap dirt Sportsman race and 100-lap 358 Modified showdown.

IMG_4679Brighton’s fifth annual, $6000-to-win McDougall Insurance and Financial Great Crate Race will run on September 12.  The race will once again be a stop for the Go Nuclear! Late Model Challenge Series. Dale Caswell of West Monroe, NY won last year’s event ahead of Brighton regulars Greg Belyea (Frankford, Ont.) and Charlie Sandercock (Belleville, Ont.).

September 12 will also be the date for the $2000-to-win John’s Equipment Danny Reid Memorial. Dan Ferguson will look to repeat as the winner and earn the $2000 paycheque.

IMG_6676The Southern Ontario Sprints will visit Brighton Speedway five times during their 25th anniversary season. The SOS make their first visit of the season on May 16. They will join the World of Outlaws Late Models Series on June 20 before stops on July 11 and August 8. They end their Brighton visits with back-to-back shows on the Ultamar Labour Day Classic Weekend, September 5-6.

Fan appreciation nights on May 30 and August 1 will once again offer fans the chance to meet their favourite drivers on the race track.

The fan fourite Workman’s OK Tire School Buses will make two appearances at the track this season, on June 6 and October 3 for the Eve of Destruction. The always-entertaining Gord’s Water Vantastics will race on June 13 and August 22.

The Brighton Automotive and Mystical Distributing Canada Day Championships on July 4 will once again give drivers the opportunity to lay down their fastest lap with single-car time trials and fans the chance to take in firework displays.
