Allwest Powersports Statement on Castrol Raceway Dirt Track Oval Events

“Allwest Powersports looks to proceed with the dirt oval track schedule at Castrol Raceway this summer. It will be wait and see what the government protocols are. We might lose some race dates but keep May 29th and 30th circled on your calendars.
Phase 3 would have allowed race teams in the pit area and 200 fans following social distance rules like last year. I’m going to keep preparing, going to keep the equipment ready and keep the track in a state of readiness hoping for phase three to begin before May. There is no way of knowing what the future holds right now, everyone is following the numbers. No more next month, next month mentality by our government, now the focus is more on the number of Covid cases and hospitalizations. As these numbers decrease will we get more freedoms.”
The statements above are from Ed Wiersma of Allwest Powersports, the new promoter of the dirt oval race track at Castrol. They are a sigh of relief for racing fans who last week had to endure the sad news that Castrol was cancelling speciality events including the Rocky Mountain Nationals, Hot August Night and Monster Truck Throwdown.
To re-iterate Ed Wiersma’s statement, whenever the Alberta Government and Alberta Health Services green lights phase three, Allwest Powersports will be ready to wave the green flag on the 2021 Dirt Oval Track Schedule. For reference, here is the schedule:

Allwest Powersports might lose some race dates as per Covid cases and hospitalization numbers but if legislation allows the plan is to move forward with the races. The hope of course is as the season progresses, Alberta is able to move forward with their re-launch platform and allow more and more fans to attend the events.
