EDMONTON, AB. – The home track of the Northern Provincial Pipelines Late Model Series has altered its official 2010 Oval schedule. Due to a scheduling conflict with Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Washington, Castrol Raceway has had to make quick adjustments to the race dates of Canada’s oldest Sprint Car event.

The 55th annual Gold Cup, which features Sprint Cars and the NPP Late Model Series, will now be run on Friday and Saturday July 9th and 10th instead of July 16th and 17th. The change in race dates accommodates the running of the 4th annual Fred Brownfield Memorial race featuring the Lucas Oil ASCS Sprint Car Series in Washington State (July 16th and 17th). It is hoped the change in race dates will attract some ASCS Sprint Car competitors to Castrol Raceway for the Gold Cup weekend. There will be no Oval racing on July 16th (Friday) at Castrol Raceway. The July 17th race (Saturday) remains on the schedule. Unfortunately thousands of Castrol Raceway posters and pocket schedules featuring the old race dates are already on the streets. Castrol Raceway officials hope that word of mouth and racing websites, including the NPP Late Model Series site, will smooth the confusion caused by the last minute changes to Edmonton’s 2010 Oval race schedule.
