Matt Haufe Logs Another Eastern Ontario Legends Series Win at Peterborough Speedwayth
Canada’s Toughest 3rd of a Mile Paved Oval has been very good to Matt Haufe. Since the 2016 running of the Autumn Colours Classic, no other Legends car racer had won a main event at the popular Central Ontario raceway. After his performance Saturday, August 26th at Peterborough Speedway, that streak remains intact. In fact, other than victories by Kevin Foisy and Robin Jongen Saturday, July 22nd and August 5th – at Sunset Speedway – the Stittsville, Ontario speedster has been the only winner on this year’s inaugural Trailers Plus Eastern Ontario Legends Series schedule.
The 25-lap feature event came to the green flag with former Legends champion and Peterborough Speedway Late Model regular Adam Cuthbertson and Jamie Riberdy on the front row. Cuthbertson led through the early stages, with Haufe – who had started outside the 3rd row – taking 3rd with only a pair of laps on the scoreboard. He set his sights on stealing the runner-up spot from Riberdy with 7 complete and had the lead just a couple of laps later.

The show will also feature the home track 4Fun, Mini Stock, Thunder Car and Late Model divisions.
“We’ve just come off another busy weekend, with back-to-back races,” Drimmie said. “Our car counts are very strong across the board – averaging about 25 at each stop – with some impressive action from green flag to checkered. The fans are hearing about what we’re doing and they’re coming-out to see what all the excitement is about.”
Matt Haufe Holds the Hottest Hand on the Eastern Ontario Legends Seriesth at Peterborough
Christmas. His birthday. Matt Haufe’s 2017 season on the Trailers Plus Eastern Ontario Legends Series has been a culmination of every special event and cherished memory in the young driver’s life. If there was ever a movie documenting his performance this year, it would likely be a remake of ‘Groundhog Day’. With his 7th checkered flag in as many starts on the tour, Haufe wakes-up every race morning knowing he may very well experience the same result as the time before.
Saturday, July 15th EOLS teams rolled into Peterborough Speedway for the second time in as many weeks. Andrew Massey – a graduate of the home track 4Fun division – and Miles Tyson paced the field from the staging area to the green flag for the 25-lap main event. Tyson – who has made less than a handful of starts this year – took an early lead from the outside, with teammates Cole Ledson and Jamie Riberdy taking the spots behind the #49 car. A yellow flag on the 3rd lap for an incident on the front stretch slowed the pace, with Matt Haufe leading his first laps of the night on the restart.

Ledson Motorsports·Friday, July 14, 2017
COOKSTOWN, ON – Eastern Ontario Legends Series frontrunner Cole Ledson will be back in competition this Saturday, July 15th at Peterborough Speedway after missing the tour’s most recent stop last weekend due to a scheduling conflict.
After being removed from the series’ championship picture following the missed July 8th race, the Ledson Motorsports camp’s sole focus for the remainder of the 2017 campaign will be to claim as many feature victories as possible.
‘’We aren’t focused on the points chase anymore and that changes what this season is about now,” explains Ledson. “Anytime we roll into a speedway now our focus is on getting to the front and winning – and that’s all. It definitely makes things a lot easier to strategize for. It simplifies things. We aren’t doing math and counting points, we’re strictly trying to win”
With a dedicated team of crew, family members and sponsors behind him, it’s clear that Ledson has newfound focus entering Peterborough.
