While Ian’s race promotion history dates back 9 years, this will be Drew’s first go at putting on a big event! 

“Drew contact me, shortly after i secured the GBM date to try to carry on a similar event to what had been previously cancelled due to health reasons – the Big Beaver race. I’ve known Drew for many years, having raced with him at St. Thomas Dragway for a few years in the bracket program – which at the height of my bracket racing career saw Drew and I take first and second in points in 2015 separated by two rounds at St. Thomas Dragway! After a brief conversation, we put a plan together and our partnership was secured. Both Drew and I have raced enough sportsman races we know what racers want…. consistency!” – IHRP Director Ian Hill. “Drew and I will be focussed all weekend to ensure the event is run smoothly and the racers are taken care of”.

The 660 Sportsman Nationals is all about the bracket racer! There will be no “show”, no Jets, no Pro Mods, no Wheel Standers…. what there will be is round after round of bracket racing! There are classes for bottom bulb racers, top bulb racers, racers that want to pay big dollars to enter to win big dollars and racers that want to dial in their quick entries! There are Bike and Sled classes, Stock/ Super Stock classes and Jr Dragster classes; all scheduled to fit into a 3 day weekend that is sure to knock the crap out of anything thats ever been done like this before! With an estimate of over $81,000 in payouts over the course of the 3 day event, it is sure to attract everyone from Western Ontario, Northern Ontario all the way through into Quebec! If you put shoe polish to window, you’d better be at this race! 

The 660 Sportsman Nationals, with only 3 weeks to plan and get the race scheduled and promoted, could not have happened without the help from the staff and management of Grand Bend Motorplex and some great sponsors! DSE Automotive, Twin Oaks Towing, J&S Collision, Southerntruckboxes.com, Bracket Life, Cheap Side Auto, Finishline Niagara, BLASSTALLequipment.com, Western Over Head Door, Advanced Motorsports, Performance Unlimited, EWS, Boomer and Deb, Henderson Racing, For Wheels Racing, Quest Manufacturing, hutches Transmission, Bellmont Automotive, and CMS have come together with Drew and Ian to present what is sure to be an awesome event!

FORD FORCES EVENT CANCELLATION

From the protest parade…..

May 14, 2021

With the Government of Ontario announcement yesterday, to extend the current lock down restriction out a couple more weeks, it has once again thrown a wrench in our plans to get our series rolling. As the restrictions are now extended to June 2 it would have put our series as the first down the track at St. Thomas Dragway and after discussions with the track both parties concluded its in everyone best interest to cancel the event.

“Its Official – we are closed until June 3rd”. “Also with this announcement that our opening weekend will most likely be June 3-5th. It has been decided that the Canada Heads Up event scheduled for that weekend will be cancelled. Erring on the side of caution/competitor safety – Both parties want to see the track have some laps on it before we send the Heads Up competitors down the surface” – Paul Spriet, St. Thomas Dragway.

The Maxima Racing Oil Canada Heads Up Series powered by Speedwire Systems, which was originally slated for a 6 race series, where the competitors would have their 5 best finishes counted, will now move to a standard 5 race series.

“Our next scheduled race on the series tour has us slated for June 26/27 weekend at Toronto Motorsports Park. As always on the Friday prior to our events, we will have a test session scheduled for that event” – Ian Hill series Director.

Keep watching our social media as we continue to prepare for the opening Series date!

IHRP’s first event at St. Thomas Dragway is now the RPM Magazine Smackdown5 powered by Maxima Racing Oil and RM Racing Lubricants

Agostino Motorsports Group formed and in position to take over in 2021

From the negotiation room at the super secret hideout of the OGW

April 1, 2021

 

We are pleased to announce the formation of the Agostino Motorsports Group and their intentions to amalgamate with the Canada Heads Up – Shootout Series.

Its been known for a while now, that Agostino Motorsports front man Nick Agostino has had his hands in most Fuel Injected/ Turbo combinations set to hit the Super Street class in Ontario Canada in 2021, from the basic build to on track tuning. In a surprise move all the owners of the potent turbo/ small block combos got together to form the group, which intends to pool their knowledge, resources and lobby for change!

Hot on the heals of last weeks news that local promoters are getting rich from their efforts hosting events across Ontario, the newly formed Agostino Motorsports group has made an offer to Canada Heads Up front man Ian Hill, and many from the negotiating room have noted that they didnt remember hearing the cash filled envelope hit the table before Ian scooped it up and was heard laughing from down the hall way, until the exit door closing quieted the meeting once again. 

While it is still rumor, the chanting from the negotiation room did sound like they intend on moving in on the local No Prep scene next.

In unrelated news, the Agostino Motorsports Group would like to direct everyone to the updated 2021 Super Street rules that now shows a 200lbs weight break for turbo powered entries  when combined with a small block! They would also like to direct anyone that would like to complain or add comments to their efforts, please contact them via email: [email protected]
