The richest asphalt Late Model race in North America is now less than two weeks away. The Canadian Short Track Nationals at Jukasa Motor Speedway (ON) boasts an entry list of more than 60 Pro Late Models, who will be competing for the grand prize of $75,000 CAD.
This is a can’t-miss race, and there is no substitute for being at the beautiful facility in Hagersville, Ontario to watch the best Late Model racers in North America compete for their share of the $300,000 (CAD) purse. However, for fans who can’t make the trip north of the border, Speed51 will offer a live pay-per-view broadcast for the second consecutive year.
On Saturday, August 31, Speed51 will stream the 75-lap Outlaw Super Late Model feature and the Hot Rod feature on the Speed51 Network as part of Summer Thunder TV presented by PFC Brakes. All that is needed to watch Saturday’s racing is a monthly or yearly subscription to the Speed51 Network.
Sunday’s racing, including qualifying, heat races and a 250-lap feature for the Pro Late Models as well as Super Stocks, will be available as a pay-per-view broadcast for $24.99. Please note that all prices listed are USD.
One year after a successful inaugural running of the Canadian Short Track Nationals, more than 60 Pro Late Model drivers have entered the 2019 edition of the event for their shot at $75,000. Americans such as defending race champion Bubba Pollard, Derek Griffith, Johnny VanDoorn, Connor Okrzesik, Brian Campbell, Eddie MacDonald, Augie Grill, Donnie Wilson, Chris Davidson and more will make the trek north in hopes of ending the night in victory lane. However, they’ll face a stout contingent of Canadians hoping to defend home turf, including Patrick Laperle, Dale Shaw, J.R. Fitzpatrick, D.J. Kennington, Cayden Lapcevich, Taylor Holdaway and Brandon Watson.
With a new format for this year’s event, Pro Late Model fans get even more bang for their buck. This year, the Canadian Short Track Nationals will only lock 16 cars into the feature field through qualifying. The remainder of the field will be divided into four heat races, which will transfer the top five finishers from each race.
There will also be a Last Chance race for those who do not transfer through qualifying, heat races or provisionals from Canadian Short Track Nationals qualifying events, giving those teams one final shot to make the feature field.
