2012 Awards Banquet Wraps Up Ohsweken Speedway’s Season

Monday - November - 2012

On Friday night, November 16th, a gathering of 500 people comprised of drivers, team members, sponsors and fans attended Ohsweken Speedway’s 2012 Awards Banquet at Carmen’s Banquet Hall in Hamilton to celebrate another successful season of racing.

During the after dinner presentations over 140 awards were handed out to the top competitors in each of the track’s four regular season divisions along with special recognitions to sponsors, team mechanics, those competitors with perfect season attendance, hard luck recipients and those acknowledged for their sportsmanship during competition.

Both our team drivers, Mitch Brown in the Corr/Pak Merchandising Sprint Car Division and younger brother Jake Brown in the Lighthouse Tattoos Thunder Stock Division were absent from the presentations because of their Junior hockey commitments but dad Doug Brown was on hand to collect their cheques and hardware.

Among the many recipients, we extend our special congratulations to Chris Steele of Fenwick, Ontario for capturing his first Sprint Car Championship; Mike Thorne of Caledonia, Ontario for capturing the Thunder Stock Championship, Karl Sault of Dundas, Ontario for his second title run in the Mini Stocks and Dave Boughton of Carlisle, Ontario for taking the Bomber division’s top award.

A complete recap of the night’s awards presentation and warp-up can be found on Ohsweken Speedway’s website, www.ohswekenspeedway.com.
