by Tommy Goudge (December 18, 2014) – Ohsweken, Ontario – Following their big announcement of the Triple Crown Showdown, Ohsweken Speedway officials are excited to announce another addition to the 20th anniversary schedule. The first bricks will be laid in the Ohsweken Speedway Wall of Fame next season as the track celebrates the past, and looks forward to the future.
The Ohsweken Speedway Wall of Fame is dedicated to celebrating the achievements and contributions of those who have helped Ohsweken Speedway to become a premiere racing facility, and inspired generations to come. Selections will be made annually by the Wall of Fame committee, with potential honourees including (but not limited to) drivers, car owners, manufacturers, car builders, mechanics, sponsors, promoters, officials, sanctioning organizations, and media members.
The community is invited to submit nominations for induction to the Wall of Fame, and all nominations will be given due consideration. The number of inductees in any given year shall be at the discretion of the Wall of Fame committee. The names of inductees for any given year will be announced in early spring, and the official induction ceremony will be held at Ohsweken Speedway on a selected race night during the subsequent season.
The 2015 Ohsweken Speedway Wall of Fame Selection Committee includes Clinton Geoffrey, Tommy Goudge, and Adam Ross, with consultation from Greg Calnan, and Doug Leonard. All nominations must be submitted by February 28, 2015. To nominate a candidate for consideration, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or utilize the nomination form on the Ohsweken Speedway website at http://ohswekenspeedway.ca/?page_id=3279
