PORT COLBORNE, ONTARIO… The All Canadian Championships has been a Humberstone tradition, dating back to 1959. The 2013 edition of the All Canadian Championships, presented by Rankin Construction will be one of the most exciting nights of the season to date at the New Humberstone Speedway.
Each of the six weekly divisions at the speedway plus the DIRTcar Modifieds will all be in competition. Throughout the season, every division has been racing their way into locked-in positions for the All Canadian. The locked in drivers will be racing in scramble races to determine their starting spot in the feature events.

The DIRTcar Modifieds have six drivers locked into the top six starting spots for their feature event on Sunday evening including Erick Rudolph, Chad Brachmann, Tommy Flannigan, Mat Williamson, Mike Bowman and “the Natural” Dale Planck. In the Cosco Haulage DIRTcar Sportsman, Gary Lindberg, Brad Rouse, AJ Lewis, Greg Panunte, Cody McPherson, travis Miller, Austin Wood, Joey Ladouceur, Justin Sharp, Darrell Faraway and Adam Leslie are locked into the top twelve.
