Humberstone Speedway Introduces Engine Sealing Program

PORT COLBORNE, ONTARIO (January 5, 2021) New for 2021, Humberstone Speedway will be introducing an engine sealing program. The sealing program will enable teams to repair 602, 604 & W16 engines and support local part suppliers and engine builders.


“The rebuilding of these engine platforms will be Teched and Sealed by Humberstone to maintain the legality. It is important to maintain the integrity of the sport and for the future of our local racing”, comments track owner/promoter, Terry Vince. “The intent of this is to have the ability to repair your current 602, 604 crate, and W16 engines”, Vince continued.


602, 604, and W16 engines must be on an engine stand and have an oil pan, and one head removed, and timing cover installed. One intake valve and one exhaust valve must be removed to be weighed and to check the bowl area. Both exhaust and intake runners will be checked at this time as well as the compression ratio. Camshaft specs and cam timing will also be inspected.


All GM Parts must be used on 602 and 604 Crate engines excluding piston rings, rods, and main bearings.

 Racers with W16 engines will be required to select engine components to be purchased through Wegner Automotive with inscription block, cylinder heads, and camshafts.


Humberstone Speedway will follow DIRTcar rules for Sportsman in 2021 but will NOT be DIRTcar Sanctioned.   


Engine Sealing Fee is $300 includes 4 serial-numbered cable seals and documentation. There will be an $80.00 per hour charge for anything over an hour’s drive but will only charge travel one way to your shop. If two or more owners want an engine sealed, the cost to travel can be split between them. Engines can also be transported to CSR Engines for inspection.


Engines that do not conform to these parameters will not be sealed and be subject to a service charge for time lost. Documentation will be completed and serial numbers will be recorded.
