Early season opener at Cornwall Speedway washed out last weekend

sean May 9, 2017 - 12:46pm

The Cornwall Motor Speedway was scheduled to get an early start to the 2017, slated to host racing last Sunday. However, the wet weather of late has taken its toll on the tracks, and as a result, owner Ray Lavergne was forced to cancel the May 7 event.

"We need sun and warm weather to dry up the facility, and we only have rain and more rain," mentioned Lavergne. "I hate to cancel this early, but the situation leaves us with no choice."

There will no rescheduling of Sunday's program.

The speedway is looking at scheduled a practice night in the days ahead, prior to the new season-opener on May 21. "We need to get race cars and laps in and see how the new clay reacts; hopefully we will have some sun in the coming week and be able to hold a practice session," said Lavergne.

The new season-opener starts a busy two-day schedule in Cornwall. Three local racing series are included on the slate: the Canadian Nationals Modified and Cindy Ladouceur Memorial Series share the spotlight on Sunday (May 21), and the Race for the Cure Sportsman Series will go on the 22nd, along with the Vintage cars and a special wet track enduro.

On the heels of successful pickleball programs in Cornwall and Alexandria, Lancaster caught the bug this spring, as the sport took over the concrete pad at the Lancaster Curling Club, immediately after the ice was taken out.

A group some 22 strong has been meeting each Wednesday evening for lessons, setting the stage for league play to begin next week.

The final night of lessons takes place tomorrow, May 3, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., under the auspices of instructor Sue Forget.

The pad in Lancaster offers two pickleball courts, with the league set to take flight Monday and Wednesday evenings through the summer. Monthly cost to participate is $20.
