By: Neil Becker Sports Reporter Bad news for racing fans as it was recently announced that Ohsweken Speedway has postponed its major 2018 events, which include such features as World of Outlaws Sprint Car series races, the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals and the Triple Crown Showdown until further notice. “We just learned that the dozens of acres we have always used for excess parking and camping will unavailable,” said track owner Glenn Styres. “Without parking, we just don’t have room for our fans.” Despite this bad news, the speedway will still be holding its regularly scheduled Friday night races. “We have a plan of action in mind to deal with the situation, but we need about six months of good weather to prepare,” Styres said. “The reason we are using the word postponed instead of cancelled is we want to keep our options open.
