After a very successful inaugural event at Humberstone Speedway in 2011, the Ontario Topless Sprints are back for a new season on a much larger scale with events scattered throughout the summer at several different racetracks in Ontario, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
The tentative schedule has the Ontario Topless Sprints (OTS) and the Ohio based Buckeye Outlaw Sprint Series (B.O.S.S) working together during most of the events on the schedule, as well as one OTS standalone event on the schedule. The OTS and B.O.S.S. will also have a co-sanctioned event with the Michigan Traditional Sprints (MTS).
The OTS season will get underway with a weekend doubleheader beginning at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville, Ohio on Friday, May 18th and Mercer Raceway Park in Mercer, Pennsylvania on Saturday, May 19th. Just one event is on the schedule at this time during the month of June as OTS travels to Pittsburgh’s Penn Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 23rd. July is the busiest month of the season for OTS with three events on the schedule with a visit to Sharon Speedway in Sharon, Ohio. Another weekend doubleheader is on the card on July 20th and 21st as OTS holds events at South Buxton Raceway and Humberstone Speedway respectively. After more than two months off, the series will then wrap up back at Wayne County Speedway for the 2012 season finale on Saturday, October 6th.
“We are very excited to announce our 2012 season schedule”, says Ontario Topless Sprints President Ken Bayliss. “This is just a tentative schedule though, and we hope to be able to add some more events in the near future”.
In an effort to help build OTS as well as its sister site for the Ontario Outlaw Flat Trackers, www.ooft.ca – we will have a booth set up at the Canadian Motorsports Expo in Toronto, Ontario at the International Centre on February 10th, 11th and 12th. Stop by and visit us and learn more about both the OTS and OOFT.

We had a great time at our event at Humberstone in 2011, and look for an even better 2012”.
