Ohsweken Speedway Partners with Junior Farrelly Motorsports for APC United Late Model Series

Tuesday - April - 2017

Tuesday April 11, 2017 (Guelph, Ontario) – Junior Farrelly Motorsports is excited to announce that Ohsweken Speedway has signed on as a marketing partner for the entire 2017 season competing in the highly competitive APC United Late Model Championship Series.

The 2017 season marks the third year for the APC Series which is touted as the premier late model series in Ontario and will be the first in competition for the Guelph, Ontario veteran.  The entire team has been working relentlessly at ramping up their program during the offseason including their marketing efforts in order to prepare their newly acquired Pro Late Model against some of the toughest competition in Canadian asphalt racing.

The opportunity to partner with Ohsweken Speedway which is widely regarded as one of the most successful and professionally run short tracks in North America is something that Farrelly is grateful for and excited to represent during the 2017 season.  “Let’s face it, Ohsweken Speedway sets the benchmark for short track racing facilities.  The effort that owner Glenn Styres and general manager Clinton Geoffrey and their staff put forth to improve the speedway on an annual basis is unlike anything seen before.  They are always looking for ways to improve the overall fan experience and on track racing action for the competitors and it is truly an honor to represent their facility for the 2017 season.”


One of the main partnership objectives is to cross promote between the dirt and asphalt communities to heighten both awareness and interest in each others unique racing disciplines.   “Our goal is to bring as many new fans to Ohsweken Speedway who have never experienced dirt racing before and draw on the track’s current fan base to introduce them to our current marketing partners and showcase what the APC United Late Model Series has to offer as well.  We will be working closely with Ohsweken throughout the year to promote their weekly program and special events through our social media accounts and website so stay tuned and engaged for special ticket and promotional contests and prize pack giveaways.”

This year marks Ohsweken Speedway’s 22nd year of racing action every Friday night with mid week specials throughout the summer months.  Their season opener kicks off on Friday May 19th with a full card of regular racing.  Summer specials include The Northern Summer Nationals on Tuesday July 24th followed by the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Six Nation Showdown on Tuesday July 25th.  The Triple Crown Showdown returns with the Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds, Go Nuclear Late Models and 360 Sprints on Thursday August 24th and their season concludes with the renowned $12,000 to win 13th Annual Canadian Sprint Car Nationals on September 15th and 16th.

Farrelly plans on competing in the entire 10 race APC Series with 9 stops at 6 different tracks across Ontario including Sunset, Flamboro, Peterborough, Delaware, Sauble and the newly restored Jukasa Motor Speedway (formerly Cayuga Speedway).  All of the APC races use time trials to set the field for their 100 lap main events with exception of the Jukasa event that will run twin 75 lap features.  Farrelly is also planning on competing in his spare time again at Sauble Speedway in his limited late model which is a 6 race championship battle and will conclude his season at the Velocity 250 weekend at Sunset Speedway.
