Located in the heart of the Okanagan, the Penticton Speedway has been home to stock car racing since 1969. Currently the tracks hosts racers of the Hornet, Street Stock and Hit to Pass divisions. Recently, heavy equipment was moved onto the grounds at Penticton Speedway to begin a significant upgrade and revitalization to the facility prior to beginning the racing program for the 2021 season. The improvements will occur in several stages moving forward. The first phase now underway includes: new bleachers, new washroom facilities, upgraded lighting and improved parking on the grounds. All critical to promoting an enhanced fan experience.
In addition to the amenities for race fans, the track itself will undergo a major upgrade during phase one of the revitalization process. Trevor Seibert will use his extensive track design knowledge to create a unique track layout that promotes side by side racing and challenges drivers of all skill levels.
The transformation and modernization of Penticton Speedway is just the start of the plan that’s been put in place by new owners Trevor and Ingo Seibert since taking over ownership of the facility earlier this year. The goal is to elevate the experience at Penticton Speedway to a new level for both fans and racers.
“We’re excited for the future,” said Ingo Seibert. “We have released our schedule for 2021 and will continue to monitor and adhere to Covid-19 guidelines. We’re hopeful to have fans join us in the stands by mid-summer” he added.
