What year would that have been? I havn't been able to find out about the early days. I know in 1966 it was called South Shore Speedway, changed to South Sutton Speedway in 1967 and in 1968 to Sutton Speedway.

Any memories that you can share?

The track opened in the fall of 58 or 59 Stayed dirt until about 61 when they paved the corners and put cold roll on the straights.I will dig out some pictures of the early 60s in our B Bombs as we called them

from 1964 thru 1966 I think Jack Cook won every stock car race there and Jerry Reevers won every B Bomb race and i remember seeing Mr Mahoney and a friend of his Donnie Roberts race there over the years aswell

Digger,

Do you have any Sutton photos or programs from that era?

I received your e-mail regarding Pinecrest but I can't reply - there is something wrong with your hotmail account. I'm definately interested in any photos or programs from Pinecrest as well.

"Suttondusky"

The shrubbery at the third turn was hell on cars that happened to leave the track in that area.

 wonder where the old lads have all gone ,the taylor brothers ralph and ron out of oshawa ,hurmey hunkin ,who i sent down to the little swamp for a drink between the 3rd and 4th turn l.o.l. all in fun .the figure 8 track was fun .when they ran the odd race on it . i remember 1 flagman wont mention his name. the race was over, i lap the lead car twice he dropped  the flag had me coming in as last ,i was 2 laps ahead of the so called leader ,should have won it, a feature race ,it was the last race i raced there. the flagman was drunk l.o.l.i came in last according to him ,i jumped out of the car chased him up the hill where the old wooden stands were, ready to pound him ,my wife was up in the stands ,must have known what i had in mind ,run over when she seen me chaseing him got in front of me and thats all that saved his butt ,he went over to the little stand i went over and talked to the owner we got it straightend out .went back down got in my car did my cruise lap with the checkerd flag ,the guy who thought he won came out on the track give me a bump i went over into the in field  got out of the car ,he was as mad as i was a few minutes before , we got it straight ,everything ,was cool ,on the bright side there were a lot of fun guys ,that raced there , the one armed bandit ,that guy was one of the best ,a real good sport , i raced there in 1963 ,only about 20 races then  went out to flamboro .for a few  run a few at the c.n.e. and did 2 at pinecrest in 62 ,never had a sponser built the cars with the help of friends .for me it was just for fun ,something i wanted to do since i was a kid and would go to the c.n.e .back in the early 50s when they run the old 40 fords and cars like that ,but sutton was a lot of fun a great bunch of guys ,after the races ,we would head back to oshawa ,have a barbecue ,a few drinks and argue who had the fastest car that day and listen to the excuse s of the guy who had the slowest car l.o.l. sit and talk till about 1 or 2 am .everyone had to get up for work the next morning ,a lot of sleepy heads at work monday mornings .l.o.l. it was a pretty good track to run on at least no concrete walls ,i think we all had our turn running off the track into the bushes l.o.l.and if you won a few races it would just pay for your gas and the snacks for the wife and kids ,for the day .maybe even a case of beer ,l.o.l. but it was fun and good friends that made sutton one of the best little tracks around ,90 per cent of the fans were our wives  and kids or girlfriends , moms and dads .aunts and uncles ,cousins l.o.l. every now and then we would  even seen a few strangers  there ,must have been tourists l.o.l.

does anyone have any info on my super hero Harvey Lennox/Tammy Ten. I grew up in cooksville ontario, and went to most races at c.n.e. and sutton tracks. Im now 53 and we race 360 sprintcars on the pacific westcoast and u.s.a. I saw a picture of Harvey from 1999 beside his new replica of Tammy Ten car when I think he was about 73 yrs. old. I so often think about him because he influenced my love for racing so many years ago at the C.N.E. One time at the track he lifted me into his racecar and my older sister took pictures of the gleem on my face. I always liked Jimmy Howard 38, and Ted Hogan #7[sad day when he was killed]. If anyone is out there who could give me any info on Harvey now, it would be most appreciated. If you want to corrispond {sp} with me that would supercool too. I live in Victoria BC on Vancouver Island and you can E Mail me at carrollleslie@hotmail.com

I can recall going to Sutton a couple of times when I was10 or 11 yrs old, to watch Bev Bye race there in the #90 Diamond car that he also raced a Barrie Speedway, it was a 64 or 65 pontiac lemans, my dad used to help him some,  Bev was from Beeton, Im not 100% certain but I think my dad had told me that Bev won the championship that yr, which should have been 70' or 71' maybe someone knows for sure, Bevs gone now, past away form a heart attack
