Lucas Oil Test and Tune night, this Friday

OHSWEKEN — The rumble you might hear over Ohsweken this Friday night is not a coming storm, but rather a rite of spring for race fans in these parts since 1996.

The long anticipation is just about over for fans, drivers and crews as Ohsweken Speedway prepares for its 23rd season of racing with May 11th’s Lucas Oil Test and Tune night, this Friday.
