OHSWEKEN, Ontario — Ohsweken Speedway officials have announced that the racing season has been postponed for the year and the track’s 25th anniversary season will instead be celebrated in 2021.

This is an announcement track owner Glenn Styres and his team of track officials did not want to make, but it is made in the best interest of both the community and Ohsweken Speedway as well as to provide clarity for our race teams. The announcement is in line with the rest of the Six Nations community, which has already cancelled all major events for the remainder of the year. However,

“When it comes to our neighbors, friends, and family, we need to do the right thing to protect everybody and keep them safe,” Styres said. “Racing at Ohsweken Speedway is paused, but we are still moving forward and keeping our racing spirit alive with plenty of improvements.”

The pause on racing this season gave Styres and his team the chance to renovate the speedway with several new additions and upgrades that will serve the needs of both racers and fans.

The updates to the facility over the last five months have included a new poured concrete wall on the frontstretch which replaces the uneven block wall, a freshly paved pit entrance, new wireless networks and a satellite tower, construction of VIP Suites overlooking the backstretch and a new parking lot for fans behind the main grandstands.
