PORT COLBORNE, ONTARIO… Ever thought of getting behind the wheel of a racecar? The next round of future racers are coming this summer to the New Humberstone Speedway as the popular Port Colborne, Ontario oval is presenting the Crash For Cash Series! On each race night as part of the Series, we will hold a number of fun races featuring Enduros, Backwards Races, U-Turn Elimination Races, Flag Pole Races, Enduro-Cross Races plus more including Vintage Cars and Spectator One-On-One Races. “We will hold five (5) Crash For Cash events per night with each event running heats and features” stated Director of Race Night Operations Clinton Geoffrey.
The Crash For Crash Series will take place on Wednesday nights July 9th, July 23rd, August 6th and August 20th. Admission is just $5 for the grandstands, $10 for the pits and $35 driver entry fee. The payout for each event will pay $150 to win, $100 for second, $75 for third, $50 for fourth and $25 for fifth place.
The cars allowed to compete in the Crash For Cash Series include 4cyl and 6cyl Enduro type cars all running together, similar to the wildly popular Eve of Destruction. “These are the events that turn fans into racers” Geoffrey added. “A lot of our Sunday night veterans turned their first laps in fun Enduro type races just like this” Geoffrey continued. The Crash For Cash Series is giving fans the opportunity to race against other new comers and the veterans that race at Humberstone and many other tracks week in and week out. “It is no secret that some of the biggest stars in our area still love to get behind the wheel of an Enduro car” Geoffrey said.
The Humberstone Speedway Annual Mall Car Show will take place from April 8-13 at the Seaway Mall in Welland. The on-track season will begin with two practice sessions open to all cars that will be competing at Humberstone in 2014. The first one will be taking place on Wednesday April 23rd at 6:00pm and Sunday April 27th starting at 2:00pm. The 55th season of racing will begin on Sunday May 4th featuring a 55 lap race for the DIRTcar Sportsman plus the RUSH Late Models, Street Stocks, Pro 4 Trucks and the Mini Stocks. Gates will open at 4pm and racing will begin at 6:00pm sharp each and every Sunday night.
