OHSWEKEN, Ont. (March 16, 2024) – Ohsweken Speedway officials are excited to announce an action-packed 2024 schedule. The track’s 27th season of racing features the return of the NASCAR Canada Series, plus the 20th Running of the Northern Sprint Car Nationals and much more.

The schedule is anchored by the track’s four Friday Night Excitement divisions, including the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks, and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks.

The 20th Running of the Northern Sprint Car Nationals is set for Saturday, September 14, with Ohsweken’s tough weekly 360 Sprint Car contingent defending home turf against teams from the Empire Super Sprints, Great Lakes Super Sprints, Southern Ontario Sprints, and more. The winner’s share of the lucrative purse will be at least $20,000, while every A-Main starter will receive at least $2,000. The Nationals weekend will include three days of racing in 2024, as the Inaugural Northern Thunder Stock Nationals is set for Thursday, September 12, while the 3rd Running of the Northern Crate Nationals will headline the show on Friday, September 13.

The return of the NASCAR Canada Series stock cars is sure to draw plenty of attention on the 2024 schedule. Day one of Thunder on the Grand will feature the Freshstone Dirt Classic for the NASCAR Canada Series, a $5,000-to-win event for 360 Sprint Cars, plus the Crate Sprint Cars on Thursday, July 11. The 360 Sprint Cars take centre stage on day two with a $10,000-to-win event on Friday, July 12, plus the Northeast Late Model Alliance tour and Crate Sprint Cars. The diverse weekend concludes on Saturday, July 13 with Flat Track Canada Motorcycles and the Northern Micro Sprint Nationals. A large contingent of 360 Sprint Cars is expected for these events, as the Empire Super Sprints, Great Lakes Super Sprints, and Southern Ontario Sprints tours have all included the weekend on their schedules.

Another date to circle on the calendar is Memorial Night on Friday, July 19. This night of remembrance will feature the Noelle Teal Twin 14’s for the Crate Sprint Cars, the Brock Leonard 50 for the Thunder Stocks, and the Art Hill 42 for the Mini Stocks; both Stock Car races will also serve as Duel on the Dirt combined series races.

The UMP Modifieds vs Canadian Modifieds featuring Ken Schrader has become an annual tradition, as has the Late Model Open. Visits from the Race of Champions Sportsman Modifieds for the Sportsman Shootout, Duel on the Dirt Thunder Stock and Mini Stock series, Mod Lites, and Vintage Cars will add to the fun throughout the season. Other highlights on the schedule include the Thunder Stock Cash Blast 50, Halloween in July, Christmas in August, Drive Safe Ride Safe Bicycle Night, Back to School Backpack Night, Truckers Night, Six Nations Community Night, Touch-a-Truck & Tractor Night, and Agriculture Night.
