Six Nations stock-car race

WoO Late Model Series Makes First-Ever Visit to Ontario for Six Nations 50 on June 19 at Ohsweken SpeedwayNow it’s southern Ontario’s turn to get a taste of the World of Outlaws Late Model Series.

Following a blockbuster inaugural Canadian event last year in Quebec, the tour will increase its international footprint by racing in Ontario for the first time when it visits Ohsweken Speedway for the ‘Six Nations 50’ presented by Arrow Express on Thurs., June 19.

The $10,000-to-win event is not only the biggest dirt Late Model race ever run in the province of Ontario but also a unique addition to the schedule of the three-eighths-mile oval, an emerging track that headlines 360 Sprint Cars on a weekly basis. Several dirt Late Model shows have been contested at the facility since its birth in 1996, but none boasting the top-level talent that will arrive with the WoO LMS.

“We’re entering into uncharted territory here,” said Ohsweken Speedway track manager Ken Pelkie, highlighting the true special-event aura surrounding the Six Nations 50. “We’ve never attempted a dirt Late Model race of this magnitude, but we’re excited about the possibilities. People around here are already very familiar with the World of Outlaws Sprints, and we know that once they see the World of Outlaws Late Models they’ll love them too.”
