Description From Owner:
  • The Brighton Speedway was one of many tracks that operated in the Belleville/Quinte area in Southern Ontario. However, the 1/4 mile Brighton track went through numerous changes over the years, but remains the only area track that's still operational.
  • The original Brighton Speedway track opened up in 1959 under the ownership of Lou Redom. Redom designed the track as a 1/4 mile dirt track. However, in 1961, Redom decided to pave the track.
  • For the next 2 seasons, the track remained paved, and the Brighton track raced every Sunday afternoon. The area racers did not like the track configuration at the time, so Redom decided to build a new one...which is now the current Brighton Speedway.
  • Between the 1970 and 1971 seasons, the grandstands were moved from the paved track, and moved to the dirt track.
  • For one season, Redom kept both tracks open, running the new dirt track on Saturday nights and running the old paved track on Sunday afternoons. Today, the old track can be seen, as it is now used as a parking lot for the dirt track.
  • Bob Gibson purchased the track in early 1978 from Lou Redom. Gibson ran the track for just 2 seasons before selling the track to Lou Rinaldi in the winter of 1979. Rinaldi has continued ownership of the speedway since their first season in 1980.
  • Today, Lou's son, Mark Rinaldi is the promoter of the track.
