MILLGROVE, Ontario — Following a pair of successful events over the past couple of weeks, Flamboro Speedway is getting ready for another.
The 1/3-mile oval will be hosting their third event of the 2020 campaign on July 25, with four divisions in attendance – the Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks, Canadian Vintage Modifieds, and T.Q. Can-Am Midgets.
With the current government restrictions, no spectators will be allowed in attendance for the event.
The Mini Stocks and Pure Stocks will be running a 40-lap feature each, with the Canadian Vintage Modifieds running 30 laps and T.Q. Can-Am Midgets running 20 laps. Each division will be running heat races to set the field.
Mini Stock teams will be allowed to enter the pits from 9am to 9:45am, with Pure Stocks from 10am to 10:45 am. Canadian Vintage Modifieds will follow from 11am to 11:45am, with T.Q. Can-Am Midgets allowed to enter from 12pm to 12:45pm. All team members must show up together at the gate, entering as a group, with no one allowed in-and-out privileges throughout the event. Please note that if you show-up outside of your arrival time, you will not be allowed to enter and forfeit your money.
There will be a pre-race mandatory technical inspection for the Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks, and Canadian Vintage Modifieds. Mini Stocks technical inspection opens at 9:30am, with Pure Stocks allowed to go through at 10:30am and Canadian Vintage Modifieds at 11:30am. T.Q. Can-Am Midget teams are asked to check in with their officials on inspection procedure.
There will be a mandatory driver’s meeting for each class, taking place at the pit tower balcony for the Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks, and Canadian Vintage Modifieds.

The starting line-ups will be set through heat qualifying, with each heat being eight laps in length. The amount of heats per division will depend on the car count the day of the event. The heats will begin at 4pm, followed by the consi-races if needed, intermission, and then the features.

The concession stand will be open at a limited capacity, with bathrooms also available for usage.
