By Tommy Goudge (July 22, 2021) – The Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series has now finalized the 2021 schedule, which is set to continue this Saturday, July 24 at Brighton Speedway.
The finalized schedule now has 14 full-points events, including the July 10 season opener won by Jordan Poirier. Ten more events will feature Sprint Car doubleheaders with the Action Sprint Tour Crate Sprint Cars, and live broadcasts are slated from eight more events on www.gforcetv.net
The postponement of Ohsweken Speedway’s 25th season created several openings in the Knights of Thunder schedule; several Friday night events were added at the Merrittville and Humberstone Speedways as a result.
“We appreciate the teams, track operators, sponsors, and officials working alongside us through these unprecedented times,” stated KoT Series Director Clinton Geoffrey. “We are especially grateful for the speedway promoters who have worked through the challenges presented by inclement weather and the province’s reopening restrictions.”
