Second place in each class will take home $1000, while drivers running third in each division get a payday of $750,” confirmed Drimmie. “The weekend’s overall champion earns $4000 and if that driver is lucky enough to claim both of Sunday’s features, they’ll pocket a $6000 bonus, for a weekend grand total of $10,000.”

To date, 24 drivers have confirmed their entries while another four have notified officials with the Trailers Plus Ontario Legends Series of their intention to compete. A maximum of 26 cars are slated to start each of the feature races.

“This is the marquee Legends Series event in the province and we’re drawing our OLS regulars, as well as drivers and teams from Canada, the United States and as far away as Germany,” Drimmie continued. “Being named the 2019 Canadian Legend Car Asphalt Nationals champion could be the defining moment in a racer’s career.”
