PASCAR Racing postponed to Sept. 7, 2014

PASCAR had scheduled a race day on Aug 24, 2014. That has been postponed to Sept. 7, 2014.

After this morning’s inspection of the track and grounds, our operations personnel determined there was too much standing water for safe racing and spectator access to the site.

Here are our revised fall dates:

  • September 7 – gates open 12:00 noon, racing at 1:00 pm
  • September 28 – gates open 12:00 noon, racing at 1:00 pm
  • October 19 – gates open 12:00 noon, racing at 1:00 pm – for our last race of the season we hope to offer a 150 lap enduro race.

Spectator entrance is the second driveway to the north, with the south entrance restricted to racers/pit access only.

2014 Ride For The Breath Of Life

On June 14, 2014, the Kinsmen Club of Brandon hosted the “Ride For The Breath Of Life” Motorcycle and Classic Car Ride.

The Ride for the Breath of Life is an annual national motor sports fundraiser in support of Canadians with cystic fibrosis held in locations across Canada.

This year, Mother Nature was not on our side, but the 14 riders who braved the weather supported a great cause. We thank all the riders, volunteers, and everyone who came by to see what we were all about.
