Thrills start in the pit area with the return of the Thunder Cars – featuring 2012 Kawartha champion Matt Spence and fan favourite Dan Price – for the first time since 2006 and extend all the way around the track.
 New drivers are expected in each division, including father and son team Craig and Brandt Graham of Orono, Ontario in the Late Model and Mini Stock divisions respectively.
 Peterborough Speedway owner/promoter JP Josiasse says the holiday weekend lid-lifter is a great way to show the crowd what they’ll be able to expect throughout the year.
 'To say that I’m excited about this season would be an understatement,' shares Peterborough Speedway owner/promoterJosiasse with a broad smile,adding 'I’m taking calls, receiving e-mail and fax messages in the office morning, noon and night. Registration forms are coming in the mail, being dropped-off in person and arriving by courier daily. We’re expecting strong numbers in each class, but won’t have the actual car counts confirmed until we start lining-up the qualifying events on opening night.'
