When it comes to edge of your seat short track stock car racing excitement, fans at Peterborough Speedway know a good thing when they see it. The venue known as Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval will kick-off its 51st consecutive season of Saturday night thrills on Victoria Day Weekend. With the new schedule less than a couple of months away, track owner/promoter J.P. Josiasse says they’re happy to have Jiffy Lube return as the title sponsor of the Mini Stock division.
“The support we receive from local businesses, products and services has been a big part of Peterborough Speedway’s success,” Josiasse said. “The team at the Jiffy Lube location in Peterborough has partnered with the track for 3 seasons now and has found that having their corporate identity on the car has been a very productive arrangement from both sides of the coin.”
Jiffy Lube has been known as the oil change champions since 1979.
