Speedway promises to be busy in upcoming weeks, if Mother Nature allows

sean Jul 21, 2017 - 1:31pm

Mother Nature’s bad behaviour sets the stage for a very busy end of July at the Cornwall Motor Speedway, with remake features being added to the last two events of this month. Here are the details.

This Sunday, July 23, the Pro-Stock and Mini-Stock division will be added to the beginning of an already busy evening, as the Race for the Cure Sportsmen Series will be the highlight, along with a full show and the always popular autograph night.

On July 30, the Modifieds and Sportsmen will complete their feature remake from the 16th, at the start of the night, as the DIRTcar Pro-Stock Series will be in town, along with the Quebec Mod-Lite, plus a complete show. The Mini-Stock will have the night off.

"We wanted to reschedule these feature as soon as possible without penalizing divisions that will run important series races during these weekends such as the Sportsman and Pro-Stocks," mentions the track's PR Director.

Both nights will start at 6pm, so the evening won't be too long for fans and race teams.

For this coming Sunday, the pit gates will open at 2:30pm with a cost of $30, and the general admission will open their doors at 4:30pm with a cost of $20 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $2 for kids 16 years old and under. Sportsman will have time trials at 5:30pm, with their remake feature following right after.

    Disappointing season for OVFL Wildcats ends with intra-squad game

    sean Jul 18, 2017 - 1:02pm

    Last Saturday, the Cornwall OVFL Wildcats were scheduled to host the Brampton Bulldogs to wrap up the season, but the 'Dogs forfeited, handing the 'Cats the victory to finish with a 2-6 record for eighth spot in the 10-team league.

    The Wildcats, which include county boys Cameron Howes and Rylan Duhart, scored 125 points in all, while allowing a league worst 243.

    The boys did get in some final action over the weekend, playing an intra-squad game. The score was 28-21 for Team AJ. Word has it that stellar officiating was provided by Kirby Camplin, Costa Zarifi, Mitch Zapitelli, and one of the player's dad. Glengarrians Alex Zarifi, Dylan Hambleton, and Alex Labonte were among the coaches.

    Howes had a strong game for the winning side, while Duhart was steady at centre for the losers.
