Sprint Car Action This Saturday Night at Brighton Speedway

Summer has hit and it’s hot but not as hot as the action on the 1/3rd mile clay oval at Brighton Speedway.   This Saturday night will see the Southern Ontario Sprint teams back in the east with Dylan Westbrook and Cory Turner each with a win in their last two series races.  Who will dominate this weekend as VanZuylen Tire Picton and Electro Cables host another exhilarating night?  Joining the sprints cars on the race card are the Vanderlaan Building Products Late Models, the Bainer’s OilGARD Anti Rust Canadian Modified and the Bill’s Johns Comp 4’s and Mini Stocks.

Last weekend drivers competed for double points, squeezing the points battle in the Thunder Stocks and the Comp 4’s.  No. 43 Devon Kippen and No. 44 Tommy Bailey have only 70 points between them for first place and can be expected to continue to dominate the field.  In the Thunder Stock class the points battle is even tighter between No. 72 Doug Anderson, No. 85 Austin Reid and defending champion No. 53 Wade Purchase.  With 80 points separating 1st and 3rd, the competition is fierce.

Following the Canada Day Championships reigning champions No. 87 Andrew Hennessy in the Canadian Modified division and No. 57 Charlie Sandercock in the Late Model division retain their lead but the field of cars is becoming more and more challenging as these veterans make their way through the pack.  Hennessy’s dominance in last weeks race did net him the Campbellford Chrysler Driver of the Month accolades though with a total of 1115 points accumulated in the month of June.

This Saturday night fans can expect more action on the dirt! With 18 sprint cars in the last race at Brighton we look forward to another exhilarating show.  Front Gates will open at 5:00 PM, Hot Laps will hit the track at 6:00 PM and the Green Flag will fly at 7:00 PM.  Grandstand admission with be; Adults $20.00 Youths & Seniors $18.00 Children 7-12 $5.00 Family Pass $55 Children 6 & Under Free.   All tickets are available at the Front Gate.
