June 20th Season Opener

Due to current provincial lockdown and Government orders, we have moved our 2021 Season Opener to Sunday June 20th at 2PM. This allows us to commence our racing for this year but unfortunately without spectators (you can watch all 2021 races live on CTRE.TV). Stay safe and get your race cars ready!!!

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.

2021 Renovations and Upgrades are underway at Grand Bend Speedway

We are currently renovating the “Jared Doxtator Memorial Tower” to be reused as our VIP Skybox and Private Patio for our Sponsors and special guests. This will enhance the Speedway’s ability to showcase our amazing facility and on-track talent. Information about Sponsorship and renting the Tower can be found in the “Sponsor” section of this website.
Since we moved the “front stretch” to the old “back stretch” of the track, we will be adding a new building for scoring and announcing on the hill behind the Flag Stand.
Our New Front Stretch grassy hill is over 400 feet long and can sit thousands of people. Fans can either watch the races from the grandstands or spread out and relax on their own lawn chair or blanket!

We have also upgraded our concessions with a food trailer and snack booth. We will be serving a variety of quality hot food and delicious treats and snacks! New Men’s and Women’s washrooms have been added to our “Midway” area. All buildings will soon be painted orange and white and hooked up ASAP. Another part of the infrastructure improvement for the future of the speedway.

Grand Bend Speedway will be installing Westhold Transponder Scoring System

2021 will see it’s first track improvement of the season at Grand Bend Speedway with the installation of the Westhold Transponder Scoring System.

This will bring our track up to high standards and vastly improve the on track competition in scoring and timing for our competitors and fans. This new venture into automated scoring and points keeping has been used at most every other track and now we will be included in the improvement for quality electronic products available to motorsports facilities.

For any information or to purchase a transponder please contact Tabitha at the Speedway.
