James Frisby, nephew of the founder started his career with Frisby Tire after serving in WWII and guided the company for 40 years. We now have five locations in the Ottawa area.

Capital Car Show was a Big Hit

Sometimes when you do marketing you never know what you are going to get out of it. Well the Capital Car Show. Capital City Speedway was there representing the Speedway and the Dragway, with 2 Drag Cars and 4 Stock Cars. Our display had to have been the most popular one there, as our booth was fully interactive. Our doors were open and everyone was welcome to get in a race car and experience it perhaps for the very first time. It was  a big hit with the kids and adults alike. Our biggest smile came from a senior citizen, and we will just leave it at that, who got into my Drag car and had to have had the biggest smile of the day. She thanked us for putting on such a great display and allowing anyone into the vehicles. It was the highlight of her day, along with many others.

All customers into the show got a $ 5.00 off coupon to use this year for one of our shows, and over 4000 coupons were handed out. I think everyone who came in came by our booth and got to see first hand some of the cars that run there. Some have not heard of CCS, some had not been there since their Dad took them there over 20 years ago, but made it clear that it was about time that they took their son to the races. Overall, it was a successful show and hopefully we created a few more new fans.

Thanks go out to a lot of people who helped make this show possible. We could not have put on such a great show without them. Thanks to go Al Dickie, AJ Dickie, Kevin Foisy, Brent Egan, Justin, Sean and John Holtom, Pam and Twitch LePoivedin, Brian "Motormouth" Goudge, Connor Gow and Thundercat. Thanks to show organizers Dave Brown and Larry Way for making it possible for us to go in the show.

Plans are under way to have another Ottawa Classic and Custom Car Show next year, which will be even better, and you can bet we will be there again.

A Sign of the Times

Finally winter has lost its bite, and we can start the process of getting the track back up to speed and start some of the spring projects we hoped to start about a month ago. Last year, we had started over a month ago getting the facility ready for the season. This weekend was the first time this year we actually got any work done. Yes, there still is some snow at the track. The track is now snow free and hopefully over the next week or so we will get an opportunity to get it cleaned off, and ready for some practice.

Our first project of the season was getting our front sign rebuilt after what had to have been the windiest last few months that I can remember.

The frame has been repaired and new plywood has been installed. Hopefully over the next week or so we will be able to install the sign section.
On Saturday I started working on the Drag Strip expansion plans widening out the future staging lanes area. Yesterday, Shawn Kerr was out working on the other side of the strip, clearing out a few trees and working on the new trench for the replacement of the wiring.

With only 30 days left to go before opening night, we will have our work cut out for us. I hope to see all of you at the races. Coming soon to Capital City Speedway.

Driver Profile - Derek Horsley

Derek Horsley will be making his second year appearance in his # 24 Late Model. Derek had some issues through his first year in the car, and says now hopefully all of the bugs have been worked out and expects to have a competitive car in 2013. It will be a new look for 2013 and new sponsors for Derek and his team. Gone is the yellow and in with the white and blue for 2013. Derek will have CHEO - Cars for Kids this year as a new sponsor, along with Advance Towing and Recovery and Palmers Scrap Metal. Here is your first look at the new car.

Watch for this car on our CHEO Night as kids will be able to sign their name on the car for free, and adults will be able to sign the car for a donation to CHEO for $ 5.00

Derek started in our four for fun class, then moved to Thunder and then up to Late Model. This is how the progression up the classes is supposed to work and we are grateful that Derek has done that. Watch for the # 24 this year at Capital City Speedway.

Justin Holtom - Driver Profile

Justin Holtom will be back in 2013 as our 2012 Late Model Champion. Justin and the Top Hat Team will be trying to capture the Late Model Championship once again, and are looking forward to opening night. Justin has already started getting ready buy doing some running to get in shape for the season. I talked to him about driving his late model in our feature races and he says it is a physical challenge to do it. The Top Hat team has plans to take part in some the the Quebec ACT series races this year and Justin says those 100 lap races are brutal if you are not physically ready for them.

Justin is looking forward to some warmer weather so they can start getting some laps in at the track. The cars are almost ready and are waiting for their final touch ups before the process of getting to the track and checking lap times.

We wish Justin, and the rest of the Top Hat team the very best in 2013. Make sure you are there Opening Night to cheer on Justin.

John will be bringing back his Late Model, driven once again by Justin Holtom, and trying to keep the Late Model Championship trophy on his mantle. 2013 was a great year for the Top Hat team taking home their second Championship, but I think it may not be their last. Justin took home the Championship after a hard fought battle all season long with Steve Munro and Sean Kennedy.
