News From Cornwall Motor Speedway!

Cornwall, Ont – Friday, April 25, 2014 – Martin Bélanger – Here some news about the upcoming season at Cornwall Motor Speedway as we are less than 25 days from opening night !

In preparation for 2014

The annual officials’ meeting was held last weekend to review all track procedures. New track promoter Graham Gordon also took the opportunity to layout the vision of the new owners. The Lavergne family wants to keep Cornwall as one of the top racing facility in North America and they will invest money in the infrastructure such as the front stretch wall and fence to keep the drivers and fans safe. They are also planning in updating the stands in the next couple of seasons.

Several little investments and enhancements will be done at the speedway from now until the end of the season to help move the racing program a little smoother and make sure to provide fans with the best experience possible at the speedway!

Cornwall Centre Road Closed for the summer

Effective April 22, 2014, the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario has started the replacement of the highway 401 overpass over Cornwall Centre Road. This will have an impact on race teams and fans from eastern Ontario, Quebec that are travelling westbound on the 401 and also everyone travelling from Cornwall. The construction will be done only at the end of October 2014.

People that will take Brookdale Exit 789 on the 401 will need to follow signs leading to Vincent Massey Drive, then follow this route and then turn right on Power Dam Road that will lead up to the Speedway.

For race teams, the same access to Pit Road will be available, for fans, Cornwall Centre Road will be open from Power Dam and access to the main parking lot will be accessible.
