Canada Heads Up will be back at the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo presented by eBay Motors in a big way. The popular Ontario-based drag racing series is returning, once again, with a large footprint featuring a wide range of vehicles, in the Inside Track Racing Zone presented by Stoneridge Specialty Insurance.

Located in the northeast corner of Hall 1B, representatives from the series will be on-hand to talk about the 2023 Canada Heads Up season, which will feature five race weekends, beginning June 2, 3 and 4. All of the series’ events will take place at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, ON. There will be 14 classes of street-type cars and bikes in action, with qualifying on Saturdays and racing on Sundays.

“It’s pretty much a ‘one-size-fits-all’ for street-looking cars, everything from the fastest that you know of to your daily driver street car, and similar on the bike side,” said Ian Hill, who owns and promotes the series, in addition to racing in it, himself. “We have classes for stock wheelbase, long wheelbase, heads up and indexes.”

Canada Heads Up will have several high-powered machines on display at Motorama, providing showgoers with an up-close look at the different types of cars and bikes that do battle in the series.
Included in the car assortment is a white 1969 Camaro driven by Ricky Carlos. The Chevy has a 740-cubic-inch engine, with a five-inch bore space, and is naturally aspirated. It has a Tim McAmis-built chassis and a Joe Van Overbeek and Kelly Cooper carbon fiber body.

Brent Stein, who set a record 4.260 ET in the Super Street class last season, will have his red 2018 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 on hand. The car has a Nissan TB48 Inline 6 billet block, head and intake engine, built by Wade Stevens.

Jeremy Brown’s blue 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and Joe Carlos’ 2008 Suzuki Hayabusa will also be part of the large contingent of vehicles. An additional three cars and nine drag bikes are expected at the show, with the bikes being displayed in a separate area next to the Canada Heads Up booth.

Motorama will take place March 10, 11 & 12 at The International Centre, across from Toronto’s Pearson Airport. Hill sees Canada Heads Up’s presence at Motorama as a win-win, providing mutual support.

“We come to the show to support the show and we use the show as a racer gathering,” Hill continued. “We put a bunch of our race cars on display, the guys get to show off their new cars or their shiny cars, then we have our driver’s meeting at the show. We’re all there to support the Drag Racing Night of Champions; guys getting awards there; Then we have a little bit of a networking event at our display after the Night of Champions.”

The series is once again planning to hold a driver’s meeting at Motorama, which will take place on the Racing Zone stage. Last year’s meeting saw a strong turnout of drivers, as officials discussed plans for the upcoming season and presented various awards.

Meanwhile, the drag racing portion of the Fast Eddie Night of Champions is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 11, on the main stage, in Hall 2. For more information about Ian Hill Racing Productions (IHRP) and the Canada Heads Up Street Shootout Series, go to For tickets and show info, visit
