Southern Ontario Fall 2007 Special Events




The CNE has started, the back-to-school sales are on and a few leaves have started to change colour. That means it's time for CanadianRacer.com's annual look at the upcoming special shows at Southern Ontario's speedways.

As usual, there will be some tough decisions for race fans to make as some events are running concurrently. Some of the particularly busy days are September 2, 3 and 15.

The Southern Ontario Sprints are on hand on Saturday, September 1 along with four of Brighton's regular classes: Canadian Modified, Pro Stock, Pure Stock and Stinger.
