Two New Divisions for 2019

Brighton Speedway to Create Two New Divisions for 2019


For Immediate Release

In an effort to grow grass roots racing at the local level Brighton Speedway is expanding its options for driver’s young and old alike!  In 2019 Brighton Speedway will create two new divisions, one on Thursdays for the Kart Klub will be the Stock Lite division and the second will be a new Mini Stock Division for Saturday Nights.

The Thursday night addition of the Stock Lite Division will be for youth 14-18 and they will race at a weight of 330 lbs driver and kart and will run with no restrictor plate.  Thursday Night Kart Klub Race Director Charlie Sandercock explains “There are a lot of racers at the upper end of the Junior Restricted division that want to keep racing and this allows them a chance to continue to race well building experience in a faster heavier Kart”.  There are also a number of drivers scheduled to move up from Junior Sportsman into the Junior Restricted Division there for spreading the racers out and not having a log jam of drivers in the Junior Restricted Division.  Stock Heavy will kick off in May of 2019.

The all new Saturday night division of Mini Stock is designed as a stepping stone between Karts or Stingers to Comp 4 or Thunder Stocks being that it opens up the competitive cars to a wide range including wheel drive vehicles.  The plan is that the Mini Stocks will run single overhead cam engines and will be on 100% common rules with the Ohsweken, Humberstone, Merrittville Mini Stock rules.  The new division and will also be part of the new Mini Stock Duel in the Dirt series that takes place between the four tracks!

This new Mini Stock Class will run on Saturday nights with the current Comp 4 division.  Both divisions will race together but will race for a separate purse and separate point’s standings and points fund at the end of the season.  “This new division does not affect the current Comp 4 division or any of its current rules.  The Comp 4 division has been successful the last few years but the ruled for the new division are a little less high tech than the Comp 4 division that is primarily dominated by Honda’s and maybe easier to grasp for upcoming racers.” Says track promoter Mark Rinaldi.  “It also allows drivers a wide selection of cars to choose from including many rear wheel drive models that will give drivers valuable experience when the driver chooses to move to Thunder Stocks or higher divisions, this will be a great stepping stone division for Kart or Stinger racers looking to move up”.

With the plan for Brighton Speedway to race both Mini Stocks and Comp 4 together in the same feature it will work towards filling out the field on Saturday nights and most certainly provide some exciting racing every week.

The complete rules package for the Mini Stock division will be available in the fall however if drivers are looking for more information they can visit the Ohsweken Speedway rules page. For more details about all the exciting dirt track racing Brighton Speedway has to offer visit
