The Great Canadian Race Weekend is almost here!

September 1, 2010 (London, Ontario) The long weekend is a labour of love for Delaware Speedway with three great days of action in a row on the Great Canadian Race Weekend!

We start the weekend on Friday night, September 3rd, sponsored by Krown with racing starting at 8 pm.  As points leader in NASCAR Late Models, Ron Sheridan seems poised to win his first Championship but there are a lot of laps still to go including a feature race on Friday night. 


Only two points separate Kris Lawrence and Jason Lidster, and Lidster from Steve Smith atop the Delaware Super Stocks standings heading into Friday's show. 


And there's a big prize up for the winner in the spectator's race, the King of the Hill finale - $1000! 


Before the green flag flies on Friday, drivers in Delaware's Junior Racing League sponsored by Krown Body Maintenance will be signing autographs for fans.


Saturday September 4th we're running triple 35-lap feature races involving Powerade Modifieds, Demar Aggregates Trucks and the Transmission Direct Enduro All-Stars.  


A special feature of Saturday's itinerary is the return of the Train Races!  We've demonstrated the excitement these chained-together cars offer - just imagine when there are a bunch of them on the track!  Better yet, don't imagine – join us on Saturday and you'll see for yourself. Racing begins at 7 on Saturday.


Then on Sunday September 5th, the grand finale to a great race weekend: NASCAR Late Model drivers will compete for a total of $35,000 in prize money including $10,000 to win the "Great Canadian 200".  You never know who will show up to take part in this exciting event!  Racing starts at 2 pm.
