The highly anticipated 3rd Annual Great Crate Race that was scheduled for today has been postponed due to rain, and an unstable forecast over the next several hours.  With many race teams traveling a great distance, track officials made the decision to reschedule the event until Saturday, September 28th.


McDougall’s Insurance & Financial returns as the title sponsor of this 65 lap event, with additional backing from Excel Tower Service, Brighton Speedway, Hotch’s Auto Parts, Dibbitt’s Excavating Ltd., King Landscaping, John’s Equipment, Tenacious Racing, and Finish Line Web Design.  The total purse with awards and contingencies will be in excess of $20000, with more than $5000 going to the race winner.


In addition to the Great Crate Race on September 28th, Brighton Speedway will also have the Canadian Modifieds on hand with big money for them as well with the $2000 to win Danny Reid Memorial event on the same night. The entire program for today will move to the September 28th date, with the addition of the Brighton Automotive Pro Stocks.


General Admission for this event is only $15 for adults, $10 for Youths and Seniors and only $4 for children ages 7 to 12.  Children six years of age and under are admitted FREE to the main grandstand area.  Gates will open at 4:30pm with racing action getting underway at 6pm.
