The first of four Regional Driving Championships, to determine eight drivers in the National Driving Championship (NDC) and ultimately Canada’s rep to the 2019 World Driving Championship in Sweden, kicks off tonight as The Raceway at Western Fair District hosts the Ontario Regional Driving Championship (ORDC).

Racing starts at 6:15 p.m. and the ORDC races are races two through ten on the card. Nine of Ontario’s most talented harness racing drivers will compete in this event. Each driver will compete in eight races, drive from every post position and sit out one race.

The field includes Canada’s Driver of the Year for 2017, Doug McNair, along with this year’s leader in wins and earnings, Louis-Philippe Roy. Jody Jamieson, no stranger to these competitions, and a two-time World Driving Champion is also competing.

Rounding out the field are: Alfie Carroll, Jonathan Drury, J Harris, Trevor Henry, Bob McClure and Robert Shepherd.
