Cornwall, Ont – Monday, May 12, 2014 – Martin Bélanger – We are now less than one week away before the action starts at Cornwall Motor Speedway. The 2014 season will begin with a spectacular show as the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series will be town for their inaugural event of the year in conjunction with the Canadian Nationals along with the first race of the Mohawk Race Parts Pro-Stock series and a complete race program. It will also mark new beginnings for the new management group.
The Minute Auto Wash 100 will be the highlight of the race program as the best 358-Modified drivers in the Northeast will hit Cornwall next Sunday in order to compete in the $4,000 to win 100-lap feature event. Counting for both the DIRTcar 358-Modified Series and Canadian Nationals, it will attract the best drivers from Ontario, Quebec and the state of New-York. Defending DIRTcar 358-Modified Series champion, Erick Rudolph will lead a pack of invaders that will include Cornwall track champion Mario Clair, Mat Williamson, David Hébert and Danny O’Brien, will compete against local stars such as Laurent Ladouceur, Stephane Lafrance, Carey Terrance, Joel Doiron, Brian McDonald, Chris Raabe and several others. A huge field of cars is expected for opening night.
The Pro-Stock division will share the spotlight as the Mohawk Race Parts Series will also complete a 3-race weekend with a 40-lap event, some of the best drivers of Eastern Ontario, Quebec and Northern New-York will be in town to compete for this coveted win.
A complete race program is also on the card for Sportsman, Semi-Pro and Mini-Stock; we expect healthy fields of cars in all classes for 2014.
