MOSPORT SPEEDWAY: Lucky fan to win dirtbike at double-feature event on Saturday

BOWMANVILLE, ON - With the weather cancelling last Saturday nights feature race, the Lucas Oil Sportsman Cup will be paired with this week's special, Daymak of Ajax Ontario Legends for an action-packed night of nose-to-tail racing.

The Lucas Oil Sportsman's Cup is a 100-lap feature race featuring title hopefuls.  With two-time winner Steve Robblee stepping away from the series this year, the chase for the championship is wide-open.  This will be the Sportsman's first of two Mosport visits this season.

The Ontario Legends, on this night being presented by Daymak of Ajax, will be making their second of three appearances on Canada's fastest half-mile paved oval.  Legends Cars are 5/8 scale versions of 1930's & 1940's Chevrolet, Ford and Dodge coupes and sedans, powered by a 1.2 liter (75 cubic inch) engine.  This makes them capable of reaching speeds in excess of 200 km/h.  Legends cars are raced at over 200 tracks and speedways across Canada and the United States making them one of the fastest growing classes in automobile racing today.  Some of the top drivers from NASCAR have and still do, race in Legends cars.

Daymak will also be giving away a Daymak 125 CC dirt bike valued at $950. A draw of admissions tickets will determine the winner, giving everyone a chance to win.

This Saturday, June 19, Great Blue Heron Charity Casino will be the night's Corporate Sponsor.  The Casino is located at 21777 Island Road in Port Perry.  They are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

All three of Mosport's home divisions will be in action, the THORSONS EVT 6 or Less, Bob's Towing Sportsman and the R.P. Oil Ltd. Late models.  As with every Saturday night this summer, the Old Dutch Crunch King of the Hill race for spectators will round out a fun-filled evening.

Admission for adults is just $13 and as always, children 12 and under are free with a paid adult admission.  For more information and to get your tickets call (905) 983-9141 or visit
