New Ownership Group Formed for Delaware Speedway
LONDON, ON – Delaware Speedway has been a staple in Canadian motorsports and stock car racing since 1952, hosting some of the country’s top touring series and weekly racing talent for nearly 70 years. The half-mile paved oval is one of Canada’s oldest operating racetracks and is located just minutes to the west of London, Ontario.
A new ownership group, The Delaware Group, consisting of Walt Spivak, Jon Aarts (John Aarts Group/J-AAR) and the United Racing Series (Ivor Jones, John Jones, Steve Drake and Luke Ramsay) will oversee the famous track moving forward with Russ Urlin managing operations under the role of General Manager. Luke Ramsay will assume the position of President of Delaware Speedway with Darryl Timmermans in the role of Competition Director. The United Racing Series marketing and management team is set to promote the speedway.
The new ownership group has plans in place to significantly invest in the facility including racetrack surface upgrades that will begin at the conclusion of the 2021 race season and be complete for the start of the 2022 race season. Additional facility upgrades will take place throughout the season and into the 2022 race season.
The next chapter for the historic half-mile is set to be a major one with the ownership group planning major events and upgrades to the facility and operations. Weekly racing will return to the speedway in 2021 after the 2020 race season was cancelled due to the pandemic. Touring series, including the United Racing Series, will have events at Delaware Speedway in 2021 to race alongside the weekly series.
The 2021 season will officially begin on Friday, July 2nd with the United Racing Series season opener. The APC United Late Model Series and Qwick Wick Fire Starter Super Stock Series will open their province-wide tour at Delaware Speedway on the Friday of Canada Day weekend, July 2nd, with weekly racing commencing the following Friday night. Monday night practice and Saturday practice events will be held in June as teams gear up for the season.
