2024 SOUTHERN ONTARIO SPRINTS SCHEDULE, PURSE INCREASES REVEALED

ST. MARYS, Ont. (April 3, 2024) – Southern Ontario Sprints officials are pleased to announce the 2024 series schedule, along with the championship points fund, and increased event purses.

2024 SCHEDULE
The 27th SOS season will bring the series to five tracks; Merrittville Speedway, Southern Ontario Motor Speedway, Ohsweken Speedway, and Humberstone Speedway in Ontario, and Ransomville Speedway in New York.

Merrittville will host four SOS events, including the season-opening Spring Sizzler on April 20, and the Gary Cunningham Memorial in June. Extra cash will again be on the line in the Cunningham Memorial, with lap sponsors and various other extras. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details!

Three visits to Southern Ontario Motor Speedway (South Buxton) are highlighted by a co-sanctioned event with the Great Lakes Super Sprints in July, and Sprint Car doubleheaders with the Ontario Traditional Sprints series in June and September.

The July SOMS event is preceded by two big Thunder on the Grand events at Ohsweken, while the SOS will again be a part of Northern Sprint Car Nationals weekend in September. The Southern Ontario Sprints, Great Lakes Super Sprints, Empire Super Sprints, and Ohsweken's 360 Sprint Car division are all involved as co-sanctions for the Ohsweken events.

The lone trip across the border for the SOS will occur at Ransomville in August, and the trip will be a lucrative one with the purse being paid in US funds. Many drivers and teams from Western New York have supported the SOS series from day one, making the trip an opportunity to reminisce with old friends as well.

The season is scheduled to conclude with a pair of events at Humberstone in October for another edition of The Fall Classic.

2024 PURSE INCREASES
Thanks to the generosity of Nitro 54 Variety and Tammy Ten Media, the standard Southern Ontario Sprints race night purse is set for a significant boost. Each A-Main starter will earn at least $350, and the winner will earn at least $2,500.

The Gary Cunningham Memorial at Merrittville will pay $3,000 to the winner, with other bonuses yet to be announced. Nitro 54 also has a hand in some big paydays at Ohsweken, including $20,000-to-win for the 20th running of the Northern Sprint Car Nationals.

2024 POINTS FUND
The top ten finishers in the SOS championship standings will each earn a share of the $7,000 points fund thanks to Hoosier Tire Canada. The 2024 SOS champion will be awarded $1,100, while each top ten finisher will take home at least $500. Drivers must compete in at least 80% of the SOS schedule to be eligible.
