Second Canadian Short Track Nationals entry list stands at 60 strong

The second Short Track Nationals is bigger and richer than the first …

Jukasa Motor Speedway

Based purely on the entry list, the sequel for the Canadian Short Track Nationals is poised to eclipse the original.

With just a week until haulers move into Southernmost Canada, over 60 teams have registered for the second Pro Late Model spectacular at the Jukasa Motor Speedway in Hagersville, Ontario.

Defending winner Bubba Pollard will be back to defend his crown but the current entry list reads like an all-star list of North vs. South. It includes a two-time Snowball Derby winner in Augie Grill and a NASCAR Pinty’s Series champion in Cayden Lapcevich.

Former CRA Super Series champion Johnny VanDoorn is represented as is a previous Southern Super Series champion in Donnie Wilson. Multi-time PASS Nprth champion Johhny Clark will race as well as two-time Oxford 250 winner and Milk Bowl winner Eddie MacDonald.

APC United Late Model Series championship leader Matt Pritiko has entered, fresh off his third victory of the season at Sunset Speedway. Dale Shaw, the inaugural APC champion, will try his hand in the event.

The race features a winner’s prize of $75,000 CDN, the equivalent of $56,000 USD — the richest prize in Late Model racing.

The race weekend will include a single-car qualifying session in which the top-16 locks into the 250-lap main event. The remainder of the field will be split into four 10-lap heat races, with the top-5 finishers in each heat race earning a spot in the feature.

A Last Chance Race will send a TBD number of entries to the main, with that number defending on who earned guaranteed starting positions during the qualifying events.

For the race itself, there will be a five-minute break on Lap 125 for fuel and adjustments. The race will be an eight tire race — four on the car and four in the pits — with only two new tires being allowed to be bolted on per caution.

Caution laps will count but drivers will not lose a lap for pitting during a caution.

The complete entry list as of Saturday can be found below. The race will take place on Sunday, September 1 and will air live on Speed51.com for $24.99 USD.
