"We were very excited to partner with Flat Track Canada, as Flat Track Canada is a great organization that continues to grow its sport with their events. Through this process we will continue to promote and support Flat Track Canada and their upcoming racing events, encouraging all motorsports enthusiasts to attend one or more of their upcoming races".
"I'd like to apologize to our racers and to the Walton audience who were looking forward to witnessing flat track racing," said Aaron Hesmer, president of Flat Track Canada Inc. "Unfortunately, circumstances were beyond my control, but we at Flat Track Canada remain focused on the continued growth of flat track racing."

About The TransCan
In 1992, the TransCan was created as Walton Raceway would hold an annual event drawing on all the best things in the sport, an annual coming together for bragging rights, a celebration of Canadian Motocross. The TransCan was built from a great natural track, strong community support, accessibility and support from the Industry. The emphasis was to be real outdoor style motocross, highly competitive with lots of extracurricular attractions and opportunity for the best Canadian racers in all age classes to compete against each other for a Canadian Amateur and Pro Motocross Championship.
