1st Annual “CCS Summer Sizzler” To Be Run On July 5th

1st Annual “CCS Summer Sizzler” To Be Run On July 5th

By Todd Gow – Capital City Speedway is pleased to announce that July 5th will be one of the best shows to hit CCS in a long time. It will be a triple bill of sorts with the OSCAAR Modifieds making their first appearance at CCS. Capital City used to run the Modifieds years ago, and if you saw them run back then, you know how exciting this show is going to be.

We will also have the Lucas Oil Sportsman Series coming to run a 100 Lap race. This will be the first time they have been here since 2009. We will see some of our local sportsman guys racing in this series and we hope to confirm the names for you over the next couple of weeks.

revstarThird on the bill is the Revstar SRT Series. This is a touring series out of Quebec and they can be compared to a mini Sprint car. They run a 2.4L Mopar engine and look like they will put on a great show.

To fill the bill out on this show we will have a 100 Lap Enduro to close out what will be an excellent show. The support the Enduro drivers have shown us over the last couple of years has enabled us to include them in a few more shows this year. Enduro drivers have asked for more dates and what better way than to include them in one of our biggest shows ever.

This will be an afternoon show with ongoing discussions as to the start time. When we have that set in stone we will post the start time and more information as it becomes available. Just make sure you mark your calender now for July 5th and we will see you at the races. One of the reasons we have decided to put on a couple of big shows this year has been the tremendous fan support we have received over the last couple of years. We hope this trend will continue this year and from all of us here at CCS we would like to Thank You for your continuing support of our facility.

Lucas Oil

Please note the Title Rights for this race are available for purchase, so if you want to become an advertiser with us in 2014, why not start with one of the biggest shows of the year. For further information please call Todd Gow at 613-723-7223.

Did I mention that this will be one of the biggest shows of the year. We are working on another one now that will be a “Monster of a Show” hopefully sometime in August. Stay Tuned for future developments on that show.

Capital City Speedway Listens to Driver Feedback and Increases Purse For Upcoming Dirt Style Sportsman Events

Capital City Speedway Listens to Driver Feedback and Increases Purse For Upcoming Dirt Style Sportsman Events

By Craig Revelle – Finish Line Web Design - June 18, 2013

Track officials at Capital City Speedway in Stittsville, Ontario are about to roll out the welcome matt as they open their doors for the traditional dirt style Sportsman cars to come on out and have some fun on the 3/8th mile paved speedway located just off of Highway 7 just west of Ottawa. The Sportsman division has been booked in for four dates in the 2013 season, and with a strong turnout this year, more dates could be added for 2014.

The four dates for 2013 will all an addition to their already stellar Wednesday night lineup. The first race will take place on June 26th, July 24th, July 31st and the final race will take place on August 28th. Each Sportsman team will receive a free pit pass for the driver and two crewmembers (valued at $60). After first issuing this release last week, Capital City Speedway officials have decided to raise the purse to $300 to win, and will also pay back to the eighth place finisher. Second place will receive $200, third place will go home with $150, fourth place and fifth place will leave with $100. Sixth, Seventh and Eighth place finishers will receive amounts of $75, $50 and $25 respectively.

Standard Dirt Sportsman rules from area tracks will apply. Tires should be a hard compound dirt tire, but we will open it up to allow drivers to run old dirt track racing tires they may want to get rid of. We will revisit the rules package if we can get enough interest and cars for next year.

The idea for the Sportsman events at Capital City came through Joey Evans, a Sportsman driver from the Ottawa area. Joey approached Todd Gow with the idea, and soon the dates were finalized. Finish Line Web Design has also come aboard to help promote the four race event, and to help draw more attention to Capital City Speedway from area Sportsman competitors.

For more information on this Sportsman invasion of Capital City Speedway, please contact track promoter Todd Gow at the track at 613-723-7223 or email him at todd@gowproperties.ca.
