The Eastern Super Mini Cup Series is excited to announce their schedule of racing events for the 2018 season. The series, entering its seventh year as an organization touring Atlantic Canada, will feature seven events within New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island from May to October.

The schedule begins at the home track of the Eastern Super Mini Cup Series. In fact, Oyster Bed Speedway hosts the first five races of the season prior to the series hitting the road at the end of the year. The season will open on Monday, May 21 as a part of Oyster Bed Speedway’s traditional season-opening race on the Victoria Day long weekend. The series will run four races under the Saturday night lights of the Oyster Bed Bridge, Prince Edward Island on June 16, July 7, July 21 and August 25.

While drivers and teams will have to perform at Oyster Bed Speedway to build a championship run in 2018, the championship will be clinched on New Brunswick soil. The Eastern Super Mini Cup Series will return to Shediac’s CENTRE For Speed and the Atlantic Championships on Saturday, September 29. Two weeks later, they crown their champion at Speedway Miramichi during the ‘Chi City Showdown on Saturday, October 13.
