(May 22, 2021) – The Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car series remains on pause following recent extensions of the Province of Ontario’s stay-at-home order. This weekend’s events at Brighton Speedway and Merrittville Speedway will not be held, however series officials are optimistic about starting the season soon.
Officials from the Knights of Thunder and area racing facilities are working on schedule revisions and reviewing the province’s Roadmap to Reopen plan which was released earlier this week. The plan allows motor speedways to open without spectators during Step One, and a revised 2021 Knights of Thunder schedule will be released as soon as possible.
More than 30 drivers have indicated their intention to compete in at least a portion of the 2021 Knights of Thunder season. Make sure to visit the official website and social media pages of the Knights of Thunder for news and updates on Eastern Canada’s newest racing series:
