By Tommy Goudge (May 29, 2009) – Ohsweken Speedway’s Friday Night Thunder was interrupted by rain on May 29, washing out the complete program. A total of 33 sprint cars signed in for the Empire Super Sprints tour event, with only hot laps and two heat races for the ESSO Mini Stocks taking place before the rains came.
ESS and Ohsweken Speedway officials have agreed to reschedule the ESS tour date to Thursday, September 17, adding another night to the 5th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals weekend! Support classes for September 17 will be announced at a later date. Ticket stubs from Friday, May 29th will be honoured for admission to the rescheduled date in September, or next Friday night (with $5 refund) as per Ohsweken’s posted rain check policy.
This week, be sure to check out the Styres Racing display at the Brantford Red Sox game Wednesday night, in preparation for the next round of Friday Night Thunder on June 5. A fresh card presented by Lone Wolf Pit Stop is on tap this Friday featuring the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Cars, ESSO Thunder Stocks, ESSO Mini Stocks, and Bombers.
