Mother Nature Washes Away Kawartha Speedway’s Plans

By Jim Clarke, Kawartha Speedway PR/Clarke Motorsports Communications


With the summer of 2012 making headlines for its dry conditions, speedway promoters, fans and competitors enjoyed a spectacular season, but it was bound to come to an end sooner or later.  With the annual running of the 75 lap Don Biederman Memorial for OSCAAR Super Late Models headlining a night of action including the Hasiuk Trailer and Container Rental Mini Stocks, Thunder Cars and NAPA Auto Parts ACT Late Models, Kawartha Speedway officials were forced to postpone their show for Friday, August 10th because of heavy rains and thunderstorms predicted for the area.


“We kept looking at the forecast and hoping it would change,” said track General Manager and Promoter Derek Lynch.  “It’s disappointing to delay one of our most anticipated events of the year, but there isn’t much that can be done.”


OSCAAR Super Late Models and the new OSCAAR Modifieds were originally scheduled for the Fraserville 3/8th mile oval’s season opener in June, but when that show was rained out; their events were moved to Friday, September 7th.  Lynch says he’s been in contact with tour officials and the Biederman Memorial has been moved to that date as well.


“It’ll be our last night for track points and having OSCAAR’s marquee event as part of the show will make a great night for the fans,” said Lynch.  “We’ll make some adjustments to our regular schedule, with gates opening at 3:00 and racing beginning at 6:00.”


Action continues Friday, August 17th with a 100 lap main event for the NAPA Auto Parts ACT Late Models as the featured attraction.  Find complete details on the 2012 schedule at
