Canada Heads Up Shootout Series to have a significant presence in the Racing Zone at Motorama

The Canada Heads Up Shootout Series is returning to the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo presented by eBay Motors with another prominent display of drag racing cars and bikes.

Approximately six cars, three Jr. Dragsters and eight drag bikes will be included in the Canada Heads Up (CHU) booth and surrounding displays in the Gulf Race Fuels Racing Zone presented by Stoneridge Specialty Insurance, located in Hall 1B. The dragsters will represent the diversity of classes found in the series and will include some notable rides.

Among the vehicles on display will be a Turbo Camaro belonging to Ian Hill. The 2023 6.0 Index Champion is looking forward to entering his new Camaro in the EZ Street class this season.

Additional cars on display include a Mustang belonging to CHU’s Street 275 champion Steph Mallais, as well as Robert Galati’s ’55 Chevy, Doug Reid’s Blue Bomber and Brodie Brown’s ’65 Chevy. The owners of the displayed vehicles will be present throughout the show, while series representatives will be on-hand Friday night and most of the weekend.

“We are the largest drag race series and display that Motorama has,” said CHU promoter/driver Ian Hill. “There’s always a huge drag racing presence. Being the series promoter, I’m happy to continue to support that and bring that to the Motorama base and, in the same respect, we draw Motorama’s fan base and try to increase our following through the show.”

Motorama takes place March 8, 9 & 10 at The International Centre, across from Toronto’s Pearson Airport. Saturday is the biggest day of the weekend for Canada Heads Up, with their annual driver’s meeting taking place on the Gulf Race Fuels Stage, in Hall 1B.

After that, member of the drag racing community, in attendance, will head out to the Meguiar’s Main Stage, in Hall 2, to participate in – and watch – the Fast Eddie Drag Racing Night of Champions. Following that awards presentation, the CHU contingent will return to their booth in the Racing Zone for a networking party.

“We’re a family-oriented, fun and sportsmanship-based series,” said Hill. “We try to schedule our events so there’s lots of time for post-qualifying family barbeques and networking after race day. It’s not just all about drag racing, it’s the whole weekend.”

For 2024, CHU will run a five-weekend schedule, with events taking place June 1-2, July 13-14, August 17-18, September 7-8 and September 28-29, all at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga, ON. There will be 14 classes of cars and bikes in action, headlined by the premiere Super Street, EZ Street, Street 275, Outlaw Bike and Stock Wheel Base Bike classes.
