From Ken Pelkie, Sprints On Dirt, Holt, MI
Jason Fausey leads his Engine Pro sponsored Sprints On Dirt series presented by Total Seal to Ontario this weekend for a pair of races in the “Canadian Wilderness Tour”.
The Tour carries a separate point fund accumulated from results in the four Canadian races show on the SOD Schedule this year. The “Canadian Wilderness Tour” will divide a $2,000 cash fund provided by Glenn & Tina Styres of Ohsweken Speedway and Ken & Cheryl Pelkie of Kenetic Photos among the top ten paid SOD members at the Annual Awards Banquet slated for October 15th at the Eldorado Golf Course in Mason, Michigan.
Friday night, August 26th the SOD gang will hold a 25 lap affair at Ohsweken Speedway in the final appearance of sprints at the track before the “Canadian Sprint Car Nationals”. The top three regular SOD Members taking the checkers in the “A” Main will gain berths in the “Village Pizza Ohsweken Shootout” slated for Friday night, September 16th as a prelude to the “Canadian Sprint Car Nationals”.
Three drivers from each of the Patriot Sprint Group, Empire Super Sprints, and Southern Ontario Sprints have already qualified for this twelve car field that will go 10 laps with the winner pocketing $500 (U.S.).
Friday’s race also marks the conclusion of the “Can/Am Challenge” with the Southern Ontario Sprints but is also open to all cars that meet the SOD rules package. The Schoenfeld #112535 muffler is mandatory, while the SOD or SOS Spec Tires can be used on the Right Rear. SOD membership fees will be waived for the weekend - however, membership applications must be filled out prior to the beginning of the racing program.
The same rules apply when the series moves on to South Buxton Raceway, Saturday, August 27th. Another 25 lap feature will be offered in the third round of the “Canadian Wilderness Tour”.
