Waterbury, VT – The Série ACT Castrol event scheduled for Capital City Speedway in Ottawa, ON has been canceled and will not be rescheduled in 2010.
“There was a change in management over the past month, and since the previous lessee had scheduled the event for June 12, 2010 we have carried it on our schedule since last November. The new management has decided to step away from the touring type events and we will respect that decision,” said Darla Hartt, Vice President and Director of Administration for the American Canadian Tour which has sanctioned races at the speedway for the past three seasons.
In a related story, it was agreed that the Late Model division at Capital City will continue to operate as an ACT affiliate track. The Late Model rules follow the ACT regional universal rule business model.
“We were happy to find out that ‘Cap City’ will continue on with the Late Model formula we have been working on in recent years,” said Tom Curley, President of ACT. “We will include the track’s competitors in our overall ACT program, including the ACT Invitational at the New Hampshire Speedway on September 18, 2010. We are very hopeful that the ACT Castrol Series will return to Capital City Speedway in 2011.”
The popular Quebec Series will open the 2010 season at the Autodrome Ste. Eustache outside Montreal on Saturday, May 22, 2010, with the first of a scheduled 11 Championship events throughout Quebec.
