by Tommy Goudge (September 8, 2016) – Ohsweken, Ontario – Ohsweken Speedway’s 21st season of racing continues this Friday, September 9 when Tirecraft Ontario presents Monster Truck Mayhem Night, plus UMP Modifieds, and a full card of racing.
At 1,500 horsepower each, Overkill Evolution and Black Stallion will bring the Monster Truck Mayhem this Friday. Visit www.vatersmotorsports.com for more information on both of these incredible machines.
Along with the Monster Trucks, the night will include a full card of racing, including the second visit of the season by the UMP Modifeds, plus Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, Ohsweken Speedway Thunder Stocks, HRW Automotive Mini Stocks, and Gale’s Auto Aftermarket Bombers.
The UMP (United Midwestern Promoters) Modified division is a fixture at hundreds of North American dirt tracks including South Buxton Raceway, but Ontario’s UMP drivers rarely have the chance to venture east of the Chatham-area facility. Their second and final Ohsweken visit of the season is this Friday.
Competitors note: One driver and one crew member from each UMP Modified team will be admitted to the pits at the Ohsweken member price on Friday by presenting their South Buxton Raceway membership credentials at the pit sign-in booth.
Racing will take the green flag at 7:30pm this Friday, September 9. Visit the official Ohsweken Speedway website at www.OhswekenSpeedway.com for ticket prices and more information – Adult admission is just $14!
