Excitement continues to build as the 2022 schedule at Canada’s Toughest 3rd Mile Oval draws closer. With less than a month to go before Christmas, track owner/promoter J.P. Josiasse is pleased to announce that the popular APC Auto Parts Pro Late Model Series will make its much anticipated return to Peterborough Speedway.
For the first time since 2018, the top teams on the tour will head back to the tight, tricky bullring on Mount Pleasant Road and will be joined by their racing cousins from the Super Stock series that ran in 2021 under the Qwick Wick banner for a Saturday, June 18th twin bill presented by KOD Disposal. Josiasse says the promotional team has been putting in some long hours to bring all the details together and he’s certain fans and race teams alike will be happy with the news.
“The Pro Late Models have been a fixture at the Autumn Colours Classic for a number of years and during the 4 years the APC Series was part of our schedule, they always put on an amazing show,” said Josiasse. “Our fans have been looking to have this tour return and after a couple of lean years because of COVID-19, this is a step in the right direction toward getting things back on track for the new season.”
Multi-time Peterborough Speedway track champion Dan McHattie finished 3rd in 2015’s inaugural APC Pro Late Model run, while Andrew Gresel logged efforts of 3rd in 2016 and 2017. He was 4th in 2018. Shawn Chenoweth was the race winner during the first 2 events, with Brandon Watson – the tour’s all-time win leader – claiming the checkered flag in 2017 and 2018.
Josiasse says its thanks to the support of long term sponsors like Jeff Drimmie at the KOD Group of Companies that they’re able to put some finishing touches on the 2022 line-up.
