National Compact Touring Series heading to Grand bend speedway in 2022

National Compact Touring Series Presented by Rev X Oil with Grand Bend Speedway.

NCTS Heads to Canada (Battle Creek, MI) The National Compact Touring Series presented by Rev X Oil is excited to announce our first event outside of the United States.

The tour will be heading to North of the border to Grand Bend Speedway in Ontario, Canada. The D-shaped 1/4 mile asphalt track will host the first ever “Battle at the Border 50” featuring drivers from the United States and Canada on Saturday, July 30th, 2022.

The Grand Bend Speedway also host a road course and drag strip at the racing venue. The Parkhill, Ontario venue also will host free camping for our race teams allowing them to make this a family vacation. There are many tourist attractions near the speedway that will make this a family event. “We are planning this to be a yearly event to help grow the oval track at our speedway,” stated, Gord Bennett, Grand Bend Speedway Promoter “You have to plant a seed to grow the tree before it blooms to make this a special event.”

The National Compact Touring Series was preparing to invade Canada over the last few years before the pandemic hit. The Canadian market is expected to help the growth the of series for larger future events in Michigan and New York. With the Canadian border reopening this year its basically a passage connecting Michigan to New York. The National Compact Touring Series 2022 schedule is nearing completion and is expected to be released in November.

2021 proposed Racing schedule updated (upon Government approvals)

Grand Bend Speedway along with our fellow Ontarians are currently in a Provincial “stay at home order” with all “non-essential” businesses being closed or affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic until May 20th at this time.

We would like to bring all of our patrons up to speed on current track operations and closures.

There will be no practice or on-track activities available until at least May 20th. The speedway will be doing online registrations and day to day administration. We will be available for phone calls from our teams, staff and any of our supporters. Racing is scheduled to continue on Sunday May 23rd at 2 pm if current restrictions are removed by the Government. We will monitor any restrictions and commence the 2021 Racing Season on the first Sunday in which restrictions are lifted and safe return and competition is allowed. We have until June 20th to still qualify for the NASCAR Points and complete 14 events, let’s hope this doesn’t last until then.

Practice will commence as soon as restrictions are lifted on a daily basis by appointment or by a scheduled Thursday open practice day for multiple competitors again once restrictions are lifted.

We are still working on some great things for the speedway and will keep everyone informed as they get confirmed or approved.

Please keep safe during these unprecedented times and we will see you at the Bend ASAP.
