Hagersville, Ontario (January 10, 2018)
Jukasa Motor Speedway is pleased to announce significant major events for 2018. We are excited to unveil five marquee weekends for 2018 that we feel will give our fans a diverse slate of racing events with the best touring series complimented by a host of great local divisions that will prove to be an exciting 2018 season at Canadas Crown Jewel. “Although there is always potential for another date to be added we felt it was important to get these dates out socompetitors and fans can plan their 2018 race season, we have received several requests fordifferent types of cars that our fans would like to see at JMS and we hope this checks off boxes
on their wish list”, said Alex Nagy general manager of Jukasa Motor Speedway.
We will kick off our season on June 16th with the first oval race of the year for the NASCAR Pinty’s Series with a 200-lap race along with the hugely competitive and fast growing OSCAAR Modified Series. The Pinty’s Series Finale held here in 2017 had an incredible finish and there is no doubt this will be just as exciting and our fans will also be impressed with the talent that will be here in the Pinty’s Series and the OSCAAR Modified Series.
The next weekend June 23rd wewill host the King of The Wing National Sprint Car Series, these winged sprint 410 cars are goingto be unbelievable on the big 5/8th mile oval. Support classes are TBA.
July 14th will be one of the fastest days of racing seen in Canada in a long time with the return of the International Super Modified Association for the Queenston Chev 50 lap along with the
ROC Modified Series. These two series both have excellent Canadian content and will be joinedby our friends south of the border, it will be one of the most exciting open wheel events you
will see anywhere.
September is going to be a busy time here at JMS starting with Labour Day weekend September 1-3 and the Canadian Short Track Nationals. September 1st will see the return of APC Series
which is the hottest series in the Province plus the Ontario Super Late Model Series (Outlaw),these two divisions combined put on a heck of a show at JMS last year and they won’t disappoint in 2018.
September 2nd & 3rd will be the second portion of the weekend with a Super Stock 50 lap Invitational and a $25,000.00 to win Pro Late Model race which will be one of the richest short track races in North America. We expect that all four races will attract the best
drivers and teams from coast to coast in Canada and the USA. Many more details to come inthe future regarding this huge weekend.
As mentioned we will open our season with the NASCAR Pinty’s Series in June and September 29th will see the return of the Pinty’s Fall BrawlSeries Finale where we will crown the Series Champion once again. Also on the card for thisevent is the Limited Late Models which put on very competitive races and the class is loaded with talent so we are excited to have them with us for the first time. This event was one of thebest races of the year with an incredible finish and we don’t expect 2018 will be any different.
We’re very happy to welcome such a diverse group of sanctioning bodies and local classes to Jukasa in 2018. Having all these groups definitely enhance our racing program and provide our
fans with a nice variety. “We are excited to get going and look forward to seeing everyone during the 2018 season,” Nagy concluded.

For Point Fund & Bonus Eligibility
Seekonk, Ma. (January 10, 2018): The Northeast Race Cars & Parts Tri-Track Open Modified Series (TTOMS) has officially opened preregistration for the 2018 season. Race teams looking to compete in the four-race schedule with eligibility for the point fund and bonus plan must register by March 31, 2018.
The four race schedule includes the inaugural Memorial Day 100 at Claremont Speedway, the prestigious Open Wheel Wednesday 100 at Seekonk Speedway, the traditional SBM 125 at Star Speedway and the Haunted Hundred, also at Seekonk. The cumulative point fund of $15,000 will be distributed among the top 20 in owners’ points.
The calculation of the final point standings will be slightly different in 2018. Pre-registered teams competing in three (3) of the four (4) events will be eligible for the point fund; however, points from all four (4) events will go toward determining the distribution of the point fund made payable to the top-20 registered car owners.
“The goal is to reward the teams who support the series but also provide an additional incentive to run all of the races on our schedule,” said Jim Schaefer, co-founder of the Tri-Track Open Modified Series.
The preregistration fee of $450 entitles teams to a stake in the point fund as well as eligibility for the bonus plan. Preregistered car owners also receive one complimentary pit pass for each of the four races on the schedule. Checks made payable to Tri Track Enterprise LLC can be mailed to Jim Schaefer, 545 Sweezy Ave., Riverhead, NY 11901. For more information contact Schaefer via Facebook, email the series at email@example.com or via phone at 774.229.6106 or 508.847.0565.
Secure online registration is also available at tritrackmods.com.
Managing partner, Wayne Darling is committed to keeping with the spirit that Schaefer and fellow co-founder Dick Williams created TTOMS.
“Every penny that is raised through registration will go to the racers,” said Darling. “This series has been and will continue to be for the racers.”
Over 50 teams preregistered for the 2017 season. Over 80 different drivers have competed in the Tri-Track Modified Series since its inception in 2014.
