Official Press Release
HAGERSVILLE, ON (Jan. 19, 2021) – It is with our deepest sympathy, Jukasa Motor Speedway announces the passing of Co-Founder Ken Hill on January 18, 2021, at the age of 62.
Ken Hill was also a prominent entrepreneur from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory.
It was Ken’s vision for the Speedway that led to the resurrection of the former Cayuga Speedway, that previously hosted many of the world’s best stock car and open-wheel participants, such as Bobby Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Rusty Wallace, Darrel Waltrip and Junior Hanley.
After acquiring the former Cayuga Speedway in 2014, Ken’s goal was to once again become Canada’s premier racing and entertainment facility. By all accounts, Ken fulfilled his vision to the delight of motor racing fans from across North America.
Ken had a true passion for racing, attended most events since the Speedway’s re-opening and frequently took the time to speak with race participants and fans, often thanking them for coming to Jukasa Motor Speedway.
Today and every day Ken will be missed by his Jukasa Motor Speedway family, racing fans and participants. Ken was a true force of nature. His commitment to racing, kindness and generosity will never be forgotten.
