Ohsweken, Ontario – December 19, 2012 – Ohsweken Speedway today announced a new management team for the Styres family-owned facility located in Ohsweken, Ontario. The team will consist of Nathan Christensen as General Manager, Greg Calnan as Media, Marketing, and Promotions Director, and Doug Leonard and Clinton Geoffrey as Directors of Race Night Operations.
The new management team is looking to build on the already steadily increasing car counts and fan attendance at the speedway, and focus on local areas for marketing and promotion. Robin Cook will also be involved in Marketing and Promotions, Donny Hill will be in charge of Community Involvement, and on the racing side, Glen Hils is returning to the role of Head Technical Inspector after a season off.
“I’m extremely excited for the 2013 season to start,” said Glenn Styres in making the announcement. “The concept of the ‘dream team’ comes to mind! I figured it was going to take 10 people to replace Ken and Cheryl Pelkie – We are going try 6 and see how it goes.”
Schedules and other plans for the 2013 Ohsweken Speedway season are well underway, with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car series already confirmed to return to Ohsweken on Tuesday, July 30, 2013. Three time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart has claimed the feature win in each of the last two World of Outlaws Sprint Car series events at Ohsweken, including his first career win with the series in 2011. The 2013 Ohsweken Speedway schedule will be officially released early in the new year.
