By Tommy Goudge (August 28, 2009) – The August 28 edition of Ohsweken Speedway’s Friday Night Thunder presented by Café 54 was rained out after seven events were completed. The rest of the program was cancelled according to the rain policy and no rain checks will be honoured, however next week’s edition of Friday Night Thunder will now feature extra racing!
Next Friday’s events will include double features for the Bombers, ESSO Mini Stocks, and ESSO Thunder Stocks, with the first feature line ups locked in from tonight’s heat race results. After those features are complete, a full program will be offered for the regular stock car divisions, including the season championship event for the Thunder Stocks.
The Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car action will also see the first of twin 15 features run with the line up that was established from tonight’s heat races. Three spots remain open at the tail of the first feature for any team wishing to compete in next Friday’s program. If more than three additional cars are in attendance to try to fill these positions, they will complete a B Main of equivalent laps, depending on the number of cars entered.
Tickets are on sale now for the Fifth Annual Arrow Express Canadian Sprint Car Nationals, coming up September 17, 18, and 19!
