The 10th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals weekend at Ohsweken Speedway is coming up in less than two months, and preparations are well underway for the track's signature event.
The 2014 Canadian Sprint Car Nationals weekend will kick off with a Test & Tune session on Thursday, September 11, while racing will commence Friday, September 12 with the "Night Before the Nationals" presented by Burger Barn, and finish with the 10th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals presented by Arrow Express on Saturday, September 13.
This year's "Night Before the Nationals" again includes Twin 15 lap features for the 360 Sprint Cars, plus the Ohsweken Shootout, Dave McLeod Memorial "Mr. Sprint Car Challenge" 1-on-1 match races, and the HRW Automotive Mini Stock division.
Each Twin 15 winner will be guaranteed a starting spot in the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals A-Feature. The Ohsweken Shootout features drivers qualified drivers from the Empire Super Sprints, Patriot Sprint Tour, and Southern Ontario Sprints challenge events held at Ohsweken in 2014, and the Corr/Pak Merchandising 360 Sprint Car feature on August 29, plus the top drivers from Sprints on Dirt and the National Racing Alliance.
The 10th annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals will include group time trials for the 360 Sprint Cars, plus 6 heat races, 3 B-Feature races, a dash race for heat race winners to determine the top 6 starting positions in the A-Feature, the 15 lap "Little Feature", and the 35 lap A-Feature which will pay the winner $12,000 from the lucrative purse.
While the format remains largely the same as in recent years, one small change has been made, as starting positions 7-18 in the A-Feature will now be lined up by passing points. The Affordable Towing & Recovery Thunder Stocks will be the support division for the 360 Sprint Cars on Saturday, September 13.
