(Halifax, NS. May 20, 2016) Scotia Speedworld’s Weekly Racing Series will kick-off their 29th season this Sunday at 2:00 PM.  All six Weekly Racing Series divisions will see action on the oval this Sunday. Adult tickets are $14.00; Youth tickets (8-15 years) are $4.00 and children 7 and under are admitted for FREE all season at Scotia Speedworld! Tickets will be available at the gate on race day (cash only). Grandstand gates open at 12:00 noon with qualifying for all six Weekly Racing Series divisions slated to get underway at 2:00 PM.

While the checkered flag is the immediate goal, Sunday is the first opportunity for drivers on the Weekly Racing Series to gain valuable championship points. After a long winter, teams have been working around the clock to get their racing machines ready for competition for the first time since last September.

The Weekly Racing Series will take the following weekend off as Scotia Speedworld hosts Monster Jam on May 28th and May 29th.  The Weekly Racing Series will return to its usual 7:00 PM time slot on Friday nights starting on June 3rd and will run every Friday night following for the remainder of the season.

If you’re planning on attending Monster Jam be sure to hang onto your ticket stub and you can catch the Weekly Racing Series on Friday, June 3rd for just $5.00! (grandstands only)
