The "Sun" will come out tomorrow

We are pleased to announce that the Ottawa Sun will be back as the "Official Newspaper" for 2012 at Capital City Speedway. We would like to thank the Ottawa Sun for making a commitment to CCS and its drivers and fans. After the success of last year, the Sun made it quite clear that they wanted to be a part of  Capital City Speedway again, and have increased their participation and role in 2012.

Stay tuned for those announcements as they become available.

Construction begins at the "Capital City Speedway Motor Sports Park"

Today was not the first day of work on the 2012 season, but it was the first day of construction for what will be the best year CCS has seen in a decade or more. Today, I felt like a fat kid in a candy store, as it was the start of a vision I have had since my short time as the operator of CCS.  Today was the beginning for what I would like to now call the "Capital City Speedway Motor Sports Park". To remain viable in business today, you have to think creatively and find new and other sources of income. We have listened to our customers, old and new, and have given them what they want. A place to come and enjoy the many various motor sports activities which exist today. Last year we had the Stock Car program and re-introduced Drifting during the season. This year we will have an even better stock car program than we did last year, we have expanded our Drifting operations which  will now include a better Drifting track. We will re-open the Drag Strip, and are now offering Time Attack and Lapping sessions. We  think with the addition of these programs and the addition of others possibly as early as  next year, will guarantee the financial stability of the property in the long run. What that means to all of you is, we will be around for your enjoyment for many years to come.

I could not have done this without a number of people working with me behind the scenes to make all of this happen. There are a number of people who have devoted countless hours helping, and I would like to thank all of them. There are too many names to thank them individually, but I would like to say  "Thank You" to all those fine people.

"Special Thanks" go out to Trevor Hartwick and Hot Equipment Rentals for their donation of the backhoe today, and Brandon Scott from Karson Kartage.

" Special Thanks" go out to all of our great Corporate Advertisers helping us out in 2012. We could not do anything without their support, so "Thank You". Remember "Support Those who Support Us", and do not be afraid to let them know that you are buying their products or services because of their support of CCS.

Special Thanks go out to the Drummond Family for their continued dedication and financial support of this facility over the last number of years. Without that support, we could not build what we are building, and we would not have the facility we are going to have.

It is really an exciting time to be involved with Capital City Speedway, and I hope you think so to.

See you at the races, or the drifting, or the drag races, or the Lapping !!!!

Mister Transmission Gears Up for the Performance Car Season with Mister Racing Division!

Mister Transmission International has been heavily involved with Canadian motorsports at many levels since we began almost 50 years ago. This year, we’ve officially decided to take our passion for classic cars and performance vehicles to a whole new level.

Mister Racing Debuts!

A new "Racing" link feature has been added to the Mister Transmission website. It’s the gateway for both retail and wholesale customers to find a list of Mister Transmission locations that source and install high-performance transmission and driveline parts for a wide variety of classic cars, muscle cars, custom conversions, race vehicles and more.

In other words, if you own or service a performance car, we’re here for you. As Canada’s largest chain of transmission specialists, we have access to the parts, resources and knowledge you need to maximize the performance of your vehicle.

Our Passion for Performance Runs Deep!

Mister Transmission’s commitment to motorsports ranges from the grassroots level of local car shows — many of our employees across the country are proud owners of their own classic vehicles — all the way to supporting the national Canadian Tire NASCAR® racing series — Ken Catteau of the Guelph Mister Transmission location builds the transmission and driveline for Scott Steckly's #22 Dodge Challenger.

Our newly developed Mister Transmission Racing logo is a testament to our history of involvement with motorsports and is a symbol of the aftermarket driveline tuning excellence that’s offered through many of our locations. Showcasing the famous, “Mister Transmission” orange, our new logo also features a “Racing” script that’s a modern take on the classic, first-generation racing logo that was seen at races across the country years ago.

Young's Speed Shop back in 2012

We are pleased to announce that Young's Speed Shop will be back as an Advertiser with CCS in 2012. Wayne Young, and Young's Speed Shop have been a part of Capital City Speedway for a very long time.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank Wayne for his support over the many years, and again for 2012.

On a personal note, I would like to thank Wayne Young for his help and advice over the last year. I am a better person and track manager as a result of Wayne Young. Thank You.

Young's Speed Shop is located at 496 Gladstone Ave, and can provide you, or order for you, some of your missing car pieces to complete your project. Wayne can be reached at 613-232-4869, or you can  just drop by.

Meet the Driver's Nights will be held each and every week in 2012

CCS will have "Meet the Drivers" each and every week in front of the main grandstand entrance. The drivers will be there to talk to our race fans, get pictures and sign autographs.

Opening Night, we will have our Class Champions from 2011 up front. They are

Late Models - Steve Munro

Thunder - Dave Stinson

Legends - Matt Haufe

Mini Stock - Kyle Baker

Four for Fun - Brooke Cordick - who as a result of winning her Four for Fun Championship has been moved up to Mini Stock.

We hope to see all of you there May 23rd.

Drivers Page Updates.

We would like to try and stay current with our webpage information, so if all drivers could visit their Drivers Page and send us over updated information. Some of you do not have anything on your Drivers Page, so please send us over all of your information so we can get that changed.

We hope to start the season with all of the pages completed.

News of more cars coming to CCS.

Two days ago I spoke with a gentleman about coming out to race at CCS. He was interested in coming out in the Mini Stock class and wanted to know more about making that happen. We had a great conversation and he may end up in Mini Stock, but more than likely will be in a new Four for Fun car for 2012. I will not count that one until I get a picture of it or it shows up on Dyno Day. Which is May 9 - we are taking time bookings now. What I do know for sure is that we will have another female driver in the Mini Stock class running for the Rookie of the Year. The car has been bought and will be racing in 2012.

What impresses me the most this year compared to this time last year, is the number of new people coming out to race this year. Even the talk of new cars and new drivers coming is way up over this time last year. I never count the cars until it is home in the shop getting ready for the season, but even so by my count we are looking at 12 new cars for the 2012 season. If we add that onto last years car count and factor in some cars who are not coming back from last year, we are still way up from last years numbers.

What does that mean?

That means great racing in every class. Great racing means great entertainment for both our fans and our drivers. Capital City Speedway will be the place to be this summer.

New Capital City Speedway Pace Car unveiled today at the Parade.

Here is your first look at the new CCS Pace Car for 2012. We are very happy with the look of the car and are very happy with the graphics work which was designed and installed by 53 Colours.

St. Patricks Day Parade a HUGE Success.

We are always looking for opportunities to raise the awareness of Capital City Speedway to the  public. I have never been in a parade before and I don't know if Capital City Speedway has ever been in one either, but what I do know is that having race cars in a Parade, gets lots of attention. That is the impression we got after today. We had lots of comments from people on the street, and lots of " Wow, Capital City Speedway, I haven't been there in years". Sometimes you just have to remind people of how much fun they used to have at Capital City Speedway to get them back again. If we can remind them enough times through Parades and other types of Media, hopefully we will see them again. I know we will see some of our old friends back after today, and hopefully they will bring their children, or grand children with them. If we can do that, we will create a whole new generation of fans, and fans are what we need to keep things going, this year, and for the next several years. I think we started that process today. Thunder Cat was very excited by the fact that he had the opportunity to meet the Mayor of Ottawa today. We had some issues trying to get him home in the car because his head got even bigger than normal.

Making this happen is not possible without help from a number of people. I would like to thank Al Dickie, AJ Dickie, and Nolan Gould for bringing thier cars out to the parade. I would like to thank Sylvia Ferris ( my mom ), Chris Gow, Megan Gow, Mackenzie Gow, Connor Gow and my lovely wife Renata, for helping CCS out in the parade today. Last, but certainly not least, a warm and fuzzy thanks to Thunder Cat for coming out and giving us a hand.

A couple of weeks ago, we did another Car show down at Winterlude.  It is a little late, but I wanted to thank the Holtom Family for bringing down one of their Late Models, Al Dickie for bringing down his Late Model, and Kyle Baker for bringing down his Mini Stock. Thanks to Thunder Cat for making an appearance, and once again, Renata and Mackenzie Gow.

New Schedules Coming Soon.

The dates have been set, and have been sent over to be uploaded on the wepage. Stay tuned for the Drifting Schedule, the Time Attack Schedule and the Drag Schedule. When we first started this process we knew our goal was to make this facility, one that operated throughout the week, and catered to the various motor sports activities and clubs which exist. That will be a reality in 2012. We have a long way to go and will need a lot of help in making that happen. We need to do a number of things to prepare the Drift Track, and the Drag Strip prior to starting these new motor sports venues at Capital City Speedway.

It appears that Mother Nature will help us a little bit as the weather warms up nicely over the next couple of weeks. I was out at the track yesterday and the track has a number of feet to go before we see pavement. With some higher temperatures, and  a little bit of sun, it should not take too long before we can get out there and start working.

We hope to see a number of volunteers out helping to make your venue, whether it is the oval or the 1/8 mile a little better for 2012.

We will keep you apprised of the conditions out there and will let you know when we will need your help to make Capital City Speedway the best it can be..

Capital City Speedway's car count just keeps getting BIGGER

We are so pleased to hear about new cars coming out, and the news got even better today with the addition of two new cars in 2012. This is on top of the already growing list of new cars coming out.
Today, we spoke with two new drivers who have cars in their garage and are waiting anxiously to get out on the track and try their skill and luck on for size. We will fill you in on the names and their info when we have it from them. What I can tell you is that we have one new Mini Stock and one new Legend. As mentioned, these are guys with cars in their shops, so we know we will see them soon.

Our new car count at this point in all classes bodes very well for an exciting 2012 season. With the addition of these new cars, will put us in a car count range we have not seen in over 10 years.

New cars - confirmed

Four for Fun - 2
Mini Stock - 3
Thunder - 4
Legends - 2
Late Model - 2

This gives us a total of 13 new cars from last year. 3 of the 13 are drivers moving up to a different class, but regardless a net change of 10 new cars. I love it and I am sure come race night, you will love it to.

We hope to add a few more before Opening Night, so stay tuned for more news on these new cars and drivers.

Dyno Day Set - May 5th 2012.

Special thanks go out to Len Bertrand at Lentech Motorsports for use of his dyno equipment and staff on Saturday May 5th. This will be a free dyno day for all mini stock and four for fun cars and just to remind all four for fun cars, you must have your car dynoed prior to race night.

Mini stock cars which have not changed anything performance wise since last year do not need to attend. BUT, you will be held to the numbers from last year.  The rules state that on any new dyno from a challenge from another racer or a track challenge, you must be within 5% of the dyno number on file or you will loose all points incurred up to that date.

The date will allow all cars to change their set up with the additional weight and get time to work out the bugs with the added weight prior to opening night.

You must call the office to book your appointment with starting times from 9:00 am. This dyno session is free and subsequent dyno time may be subject to a $ 100 fee.

Lentech Motorsports is located at 3835 McBean Street, Richmond, Ontario

 CLINIC Services

Complete Hearing Evaluation

A certified audiologist will perform a comprehensive battery of tests to determine the health of your auditory system, the status of your hearing and explain the results.
If a hearing loss is identified the audiologist will recommend one of two options. If there is a medical solution you will be referred to your family physician or an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist. If there is no medical solution a hearing aid will be recommended.


We encourage other family members to participate as it is helpful to discuss the hearing loss with everyone concerned. Families and friends must learn new communication tools in order to better live with someone with hearing loss.

Hearing Aid Evaluation

Once a hearing loss has been identified that cannot be medically corrected, a hearing aid will be recommended. The audiologist will make the evaluation based on the hearing loss, lifestyle and needs. Captial Audiology works with all available manufacturers in Canada and only recommends Class 2 Medical Devices.

Hearing Aid Fitting

Unlike eyeglasses, hearing aids are not an instant fit solution. They need to be programmed according to the hearing loss and may require follow-up appointments for further fine tuning. For first time users it may take an adjustment period to get used to all of the new sounds, like living near the airport, your brain needs time to filter out the sounds you don't want versus those you wish to hear.

Eastern Pro Tour coming to Ottawa in 2013?

Last week I was down at the Bonnechere Cup and met with the owners of the Eastern Pro Tour. We have had discussions about bringing the ice racing tour to Capital City Speedway in 2013. Claude will be coming to Ottawa in the next week or so to have a look at our facility to see if we can do something to the concrete walls to make it safe for their drivers. If we can satisfy him it is possible we might see this Tour come to Ottawa. The only stumbling block after that is volunteers to help make an ice track, lots and lots of water, and Corporate Sponsors to help make this happen.
We will keep you informed as this moves along.


Please note that Capital City Speedway has taken over the tire program for both the Thunder Cars and the Late Models. They can be purchased at the track on race nights or give us a call at 613-723-7223 to make arrangements.

Wea re currently working on being a supplier for the Falcon Tires for Mini Stock. We will notify you when and if this happens,.

2012 Rules Now Posted.

The 2012 Rulebook has now been updated and is now posted under the Rule Tab. There are only minor changes to a number of classes, with the Four for Fun the exception.

We have reviewed a recommendation that came in from Jeff Smith and it will be added to the 2013 Rulebook.. We are looking at all cars adding a steel plate on the drivers side roll cage covering the door area. Currently, some vehicles do not have protection on the door to stop a piercing of the door skin and continuing into the driver. This rule will be mandatory in 2013. ( It is now mandatory in the Thunder Class for 20 gauge. ) The rule will state that a minimum of 16 gauge steel plate will be placed between the outer door skin and the roll cage covering the driver and seat area.

It is highly recommended that you do this now to meet the new rule in 2013 and it is always better to be safer than not.

This rule/recommendation will not apply to the Legend Class as that class is governed by Inex.
