From the in-law suite at the super secret hide out of the OGW!


The call out was made for all Super Street, EZ Street and Limited28s related persons to attend a round table meeting Feb 23rd. The meeting was held with overwhelming success as around 50 people showed up to support our efforts and provide much needed feed back about the history of the classes, where they are currently vs. where it is hoped they will head. Focus was placed on the people behind the newly formed Canada Heads Up, how we will be running our events and the show over all, as well the entry fee/ payout structures. Over all the Canada Heads Up management team were very well received and the rules based discussion for both Super Street and EZ Street were calm and collected.

Of the items discussed, Canada Heads Up will be adding a two-person rules based sub committee to our list of volunteer positions. We are asking for anyone that would like to be one of the two volunteers, or nominate anyone, please have names into us by no later than Monday March 4, 2019. If more than 2 names come in, we will produce a ballot that will be available at our Drivers Meeting @ Motorama March 9th @ 2 pm. To be eligible to vote, you must be a member of the Canada Heads Up series ($100/ all funds collected will go to the banquet fund)(all members are welcome to vote). Ballots will be collected at the drivers meeting and counted. By the following weekend we will announce our sub committee members based on popular vote.


Bracket racing and Jr Dragster Program marketing partners needed! We have had some great feed back with our intended efforts behind the sportsman program at the 4 races of Canada Heads Up and the RPM Magazine Smackdown3. We have already locked in a Title Sponsor of the Jr Program for the RPM Magazine Smackdown3 race, as well a another company that is partnering with us to support the Smackdown and 4 weekend Jr races. On top of this, we have secured a No Box Title sponsor for the Canada Heads Up races so we are now focused on the Box 5 race deal as well as some associate level partners. We are pushing for mid week release of our Sportsman efforts, so keep an eye on your face book feeds! As always, it is our intentions to offer guaranteed payouts and a weekend race schedule that suits all classes!


Come be part of the madness as we fill your Saturday will drag related information at the Motorama car show next weekend! Saturday March 9 @ 12 noon – Drag Discussion panel. 2 pm – room 102 Canada Heads Up/ Rpm Magazine Smackdown3. 4pm Night of Champions and at our booth in the in second room all weekend!

2019 is shaping up….

Ian Hill Racing Productions adds new racing series to their efforts for 2019


With the 2019 season quickly approaching many racers are knee deep in their winter project updates and maintenance programs. Lights Out live streaming will give way to the indoor car show scene, which opens the door to spring and the beginning of race season! And for Ian Hill Racing Productions, there is not a day to waste.


After the recent developments in Ontario’s Street Car Headsup program and Toronto Motorsports Park’s decision to hand the reins over to the OGW lead group, Street Shootout racing has some new local energy again!


OGW has been digging a solid place on the map, bringing Small Tire / No Time Grudge racing to Ontario for the last few years. From its humble beginnings of 6 cars, bare bones rules and small tires, Ian Hill Racing Productions has helped grow the local No Tim / Grudge scene into 2018’s $30,000 payday event! Putting together the Super Bowl of Ontario Grudge racing, RPM Magazine’s OGW Smackdown has brought us to the forefront of the Drag Racing promotion game. It was through the success of our previous events, our commitment to exceed expectations to our Sponsors and Racers, and by the efforts of our volunteers, then late in the 2018 season, through the efforts of Trish Biro (RPM Magazine) and as part of RPM Magazine’s 20th anniversary celebrations,  we were contacted by All Out Live’s Brian Bassone to discuss the potential of bringing one of the fastest growing heads-up classes in Ontario – the No Time Grudge class Limited 28s, to their August 11, 2019 event at Lapeer Dragway. On top of that they are also looking forward to seeing what we can put together for a Real Street cruise class of licensed and insured street cars!


Fast forward to early February 2019; Ian found himself in the offices of Toronto Motorsports Park, discussing what Ian Hill Racing Productions/ OGW could bring to the table for the recently orphaned fastest Street Car classes Ontario has to offer. After much discussions with TMP management, the OGW put together a plan that both parties are truly excited about. “Ian Hill Racing, and his Ontario Grudge Wars, has been tagged to head up this series, and plans are being finalized to meet with racers to make sure that the program fit their needs, and with the great forward-thinking proposal Ian brought forward, I think we have just that heading into 2019”, stated TMP Track Manager Neale Armstrong.


Ian’s “Canada Heads Up – Street Car Shootout Series” is now the banner the current Super Street, EZ Street and the other Street Car Shootout classes will fall under. Racers will be excited to know that we are bringing our Guaranteed Payouts, race day schedule structure and the whole OGW based volunteer group to the track during each series race. As far as the crossover between OGW and Canada Heads Up goes, that’s where it ends. Canada Heads Up will feature the traditional Class Racing type weekends you have grown to love. Qualifying rounds, Ladders, Scoreboards and Win Lights, with Saturday qualifying and Sunday racing for Heads Up classes being the norm. We are looking at bringing in one or two other heads up classes and showing an equal focus on our sportsman side of the schedule


The group behind OGW is known for putting our money where our mouth is! Large and Guaranteed Payouts, locked in rule sets, locked in schedules and the Quickest Street Car style classes in the industry! Ian Hill and the OGW volunteers are ready for this next step in our drag racing production efforts and we are very excited to bring Canada Heads Up Class racing to TMP in 2019 and beyond.
