OHSWEKEN SPEEDWAY PRESEASON MEETINGS MOVED ONLINE

OHSWEKEN, Ont. (March 20, 2020) – Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Ohsweken Speedway officials have decided to move the Rules Discussions scheduled for Sunday, March 22 to GForceTV.net and the Ohsweken Speedway Facebook page.

Sunday, March 22 Infocasts on GForceTV.net and the Ohsweken Speedway Facebook page are scheduled as follows:

  • Thursday Night Micro Sprints Infocast – 12:00pm – 1:30pm
  • Friday Night Excitement Infocast – 2:00pm – 4:00pm

Live and interactive online rules discussions for the Thursday Micro Sprints will kick off the broadcast at 12:00pm. The 2020 rules packages for the Kool-Kidz Micro Sprint divisions will be rolled out during the broadcast.

At 2:00pm, the discussion will switch focus towards Ohsweken’s Friday Night Excitement divisions. Track officials will present information on a variety of topics, including a schedule and payout overview, technical bulletins and race procedures.

Ohsweken Speedway officials do not anticipate any major rule changes for Friday competitions as the rules are set for 2020, but teams are welcome to post their questions or concerns to this optional rules and procedures discussion.

“Just like every night at Ohsweken Speedway, the safety of our drivers, teams and staff is our first priority, so we have decided to move the meetings online,” said general manager Clinton Geoffrey. “Everyone interested can watch from home and ask questions or make comments as the meeting moves along. A moderator will be in place to help control the questions and comments. Teams can also leave contact information in order to request an Ohsweken Speedway official call them following the meeting.”
