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.

It was a fantastic experience visiting the Brighton Speedway Park. The stands were packed for the bus races and I think the entire crowd truly enjoyed the occasion. That, along with the regular racing schedule made for an eventful evening. Will definitely go again!

Fun seeing the dirt car race by the open grandstands. Race cars are loud bring an ear plug. Place is good with food, souvenirs and gift shops. Prices are fair. Admissions depends on the race ($20 for dirt racing). Birthday celebrant was given a thrill ride inside the racing car (purchased). Lots of parking. Kids will love the race. That evening was MX motorcycle exhibition as well. Worth the trip to Brighton (1 hr drive from Toronto).

For the first time since October 2019 fans were allowed back to the stands at Brighton Speedway with 25% capacity on July 3rd. The Pinty’s Knights of Thunder 360 Sprint Car Tour and a complete race card was set to take to the track surface only to be washed away by Mother Nature.

Went to Eve of Destruction..only been to a derby decades ago and going to this event blew my mind! In a good way Had a blast. Due to end of season it was quite crowded but worth it to see all the various races Loved school bus races and the trailer races Crazy mess on the track by the end..but excellent drivers who didnt care Good emergency response and viewers do yell out if they see a situation occuring so its handled promptly You will get clay/mud on you no point showering before you go Great enterance price for the entertainment Snack food available..but you can bring your own Licensed bar there..seperated from wood bleachers I would advise..if you go in the fall orin the does get quite cold Only issue...womens bathrooms got pretty disgusting BUT after 6hrs of races..its kind of expected Will definately go again!! Highly recommended for family or just an evening out!

Affordable family fun, great racing, show moves along nicely. Lots of leg room in the grandstands for tall people and no smoking in the grandstands too! I love coming here. Best value for family entertainment in the area. TIP - bring cushions or blankets to sit on. Bring safety glasses cause dust can fly, bring ear protection especially for children as the cars can be loud
