Lucas Oil and the Can-Am Midget Racing Club have announced their continued 'partnership' for the 8th consecutive year. Ken Lorenz, President of the Can-Am Midget Racing Club made the announcement recently. "We are proud to continue under the Lucas Oil banner, a name and 'family' we are extremely happy to be part of." Meeting Tom Bogner, Motorsports Manager of Lucas Oil, at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Lorenz thanked Lucas Oil for their continued support.
"Having 17 races scheduled for 2012, including one in the US at Lake Erie Speedway in Pennsylvania, helps spread the Lucas Oil name in our part of Ontario and the states", said Lorenz. "We are looking forward to 2012, our 47th year of exciting open wheel racing for our fans".
The Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets' season begins on May 12 at Flamboro Speedway and ends there as well on September 22nd. The other dates at Flamboro are July 14th and August 18th. Sauble Speedway has five dates, June 30, August 4th and 5th, and September 1st and 2nd. Grand Bend Speedway will host the midgets on July 7th and August 25th. Peterborough Speedway has scheduled June 16th and Barrie Speedway fans will see the midgets on July 28th. After a number of years, Varney Speedway will showcase the Lucas Oil Can-Am Midgets on Sunday afternoon, July 1st.
There will be two 'joint venture' events with the Casey's Midgets from Buffalo in 2012. The first one is at Lake Erie Speedway in Pennsylvania on Saturday, June 9th. The second race, for the first time, will be held in Canada on Saturday, August 11th, at Sunset Speedway. Fans will be treated to 40 to 50 midgets on hand at each race. Both Clubs will run their complete race that night. Open wheel fans will see a parade lap of all the cars under both the US and Canadian flags, highlighting the camaraderie of these two clubs.
