IWK 250 Tailgate Party/Matt Minglewood Concert Tickets Now Available

East coast music legends The Matt Minglewood Band will be ‘Rockin the Blues’ at Riverside International Speedway one night only on Thursday, July 18 as the highlight of our annual IWK 250 Tailgate Party. Tickets for this event are now available.

The concert takes place in the infield area and is licensed, therefore restricted to those 19 and older. Those 18 and under are welcome to attend but must remain in the main grandstand.

The concert is expected to start between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. following the IWK 250 practice session which runs from 4:30 pm. to 8:30 p.m. Grandstand admission to the practice session is free.

The IWK 250 Tailgate Party featuring The Matt Minglewood Band is the kickoff to the IWK 250 Super Race Weekend and will include special Riverside 50th-anniversary celebrations. On Friday, July 19 it’s the Henry’s AUTOPRO 100 for the Napa Sportsman Series and the Maritime Legends Challenge for the Maritime League of Legends. On Saturday, July 20 it’s the IWK 250 presented by Steve Lewis.

Riverside Speedway opened in 1969 under the helm of Antigonish businessman John Chisholm. It was sold in 1989 and bought back by Mr. Chisholm late in 2005, rebuilt in 2006 and rebranded Riverside International Speedway. For 50 years, the popular 1/3-mile high-banked asphalt oval has provided generations of race fans with some of the best stock car racing entertainment in North America.

The 2019 season at Riverside gets underway June 8 with The Triple 50s presented by Ceilidh Honda for the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour along with the Henry’s AUTOPRO 75 for the NAPA Sportsman Series. Advance tickets for the June 8 show will be available in May 14 at www.riversidespeedway.ca.
