2014 Ohsweken Speedway Racing Season Scheduled To Go Green This Friday

Ohsweken Speedway opens its gates to the start of the 2014 season this Friday, May 16th and among those anxious to get the season underway are Brantford racing brothers Mitch and Jake Brown.

And you can bet they are determined to get the season off with an impressive start.

Older brother Mitch is coming off a highly successful 2013 season where he finished third in the track’s Corr/Pak Packaging 360 Sprint Car Division Championship Points. Jake Brown is entering his first season in the new Strickland’s GMC 602 Crate Engine Sprint Division.

Mitch is also coming off a high in his hockey career following the Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs capture of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Sutherland Cup Championship –the youngster’s final season of Junior-age hockey eligibility.

Despite the exhilaration Mitch experienced just two weeks ago, he’s now focussing his total attention on his Sprint Car racing program that will include upwards of 40 events over the course of the season. In addition to his pursuit of Ohsweken Speedway’s Championship he plans to compete in events on the Patriot Sprint Tour, Empire Super Sprints and with the Southern Ontario Sprints.

For Jake Brown, the 2014 season in the new winged, open-wheel Sprint Cars will be a totally new experience for the teenager whose motorsports career to date has consisted of two years of competition first in Mini Stocks then two seasons in Ohsweken’s Thunder Stocks –both comprised of full-bodied stock

Mitch Brown racing’s programs will again see Haldex, Pro-Fit Health Club, Sit ‘N Bull Tires, Leitch Performance Engines and Strodes BBQ & Deli as prominent sponsors of his Sprint Car while Jake’s car will see APC, Port Dover Auto Parts, Strodes Express and Brown Auto Service logos on his create-engine Sprinter.

Other sponsors of the team’s two car programs include Bicknell Racing Products, Image Factor, On Dirt Racing News, Eagles Nest Motorsports Park, Brochures etc., Hepner Racing Products, Total Oil Products, Letter-Rip Race Graphics, 21st Century Signs, Brown Auto Sales, Village Pizza & Wings and the Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs.
