By Tommy Goudge (June 5, 2021) – The Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Car series has a revised schedule for the 2021 season, which is now slated to begin on July 10 at Merrittville Speedway.
The revised schedule includes 16 full-points events, including nine events featuring Sprint Car doubleheaders with the Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Cars. Live broadcasts are slated from 10 events on www.gforcetv.net
Schedules at all venues are still subject to change due to the ongoing pandemic situation, and the schedule will remain tentative until the end of July as a result; series officials will continue to work with the venues to ensure the teams can get on track as much as possible.
In addition to following the rules and restrictions in the Province of Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen plan, events at Ohsweken Speedway will need to abide by regulations laid out by the Six Nations Emergency Control Group.
“The schedule will be finalized on July 31, 2021 and no dates will be added or changed after that time,” stated Series Director Clinton Geoffrey. “With the Ohsweken events still locked down, we may add up to four rescheduled dates to get our teams a full season.
“We remain very optimistic that Ohsweken will see action in 2021 but until we know for sure, we need to keep the options open. We appreciate the teams, track operators, sponsors, and officials working alongside us through these unprecedented times.”
