Hello everyone!  The 2016 race season is winding down and we will soon be crowning our champions!
There are 3 race dates left on our schedule and now that it is September we want to remind everyone about the dates and times.

Before we get to that we just want to remind everyone that – ONLY TOW VEHICLES ARE ALLOWED IN THE PITS.
Drivers, please be sure to pass this along to any of your crew, friends, family or sponsors etc. who may not have been aware of this rule and ask that they abide by it.
From this date forward, all non-tow vehicles will be required to park outside the pits.  The only exceptions are those that have pre-approved passes.
Thanks so much for your co-operation!

Here is a rundown of days and times.  Please pay particular attention to draw cut off times.
If you are stuck in traffic and think you might be arriving late please call or text someone at the track and have them come and draw for you.
Or you can text Glenda (204) 791-6642
If any of you know of travellers or new drivers who may not have filled out a registration yet – please let them know a blank form can be found on our website.
Filling it out and emailing it to glenda@thespeedway.ca in advance is very helpful in keeping the process moving on race day.

* All shows and raindates have been registered with WISSOTA  and are point shows for the sanctioning body as well as RRCS Points.

Al Delaine Memorial – August 11, 2016

August 9th, 2016|Categories: News|

Al Delaine was a fixture in racing since the 60’s; from drag strips to the dirt track, it didn’t matter to the “Big Al.”  When Red River Co-op Speedway opened in 1973, Al was there. He hung up his racing helmet up in 1978 but stayed involved either helping in the pits or with the track itself.

In the late 90’s Al wanted to raise the level of competition in racing and in an effort to help drivers fund their race programs, he created the Driver Point Fund. Since its inception, the fund has paid out over $300,000 back to the drivers.

Al sadly passed away in 2009 but his legacy continues to this day with a memorial race held in his honour. The race draws some of the best Modified drivers from across the country, all competing for a large pay-out while paying homage to a true promoter, fan, and leader in the sport.
