OHSWEKEN, Ont. (June 6, 2019) – Ohsweken Speedway has postponed Thursday night’s Kool Kidz Micro Sprint Test and Tune session due to wet grounds. Heavy rain all day Wednesday and Thursday morning have put part of the Micro Sprint track under water and made it unfit for racing conditions.
“We were really excited to start our Kool Kidz Micro Sprint season because we know everyone is eager to get to the track,” said general manager Clinton Geoffrey. “Unfortunately, the track just isn’t in a safe or raceable condition for tonight.”
Next week’s Test and Tune session on Thursday, June 13 remains on schedule. The Test & Tune session is open to all Micro Sprint racers who plan to compete in one of Ohsweken’s classes in 2019. The pit gate will open at 5:30pm for competitors before Hot Laps at 7:00pm. Practice will rotate continuously through the Box Stock, Beginner Box Stock, Open and Flat Kart divisions. Practice will end at 9:00pm.
Parents, please be aware we need waivers signed by both parents in order for a minor to compete at Ohsweken Speedway. Without both parents approval your child will not be allowed to participate in any on-track sessions.
Additionally, one-way radios are mandatory in all classes in 2019. Drivers will not be allowed to compete on opening night June 20th without one. The radio frequency is 454.000. The Transponders System will be tested this week but is not mandatory. If you have a transponder, please make sure you put it on so we can register you in the computer.
