The final races of the 2018 Canadian Superbike race season will take place at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (aka Mosport) this weekend.

Going into the weekend, Jordan Szoke is the leader in the Pro Superbike category, with 275 points to second-place Ben Young’s 217 points. Samuel Trepanier is third, with 185 points. If he wins both races, it will be Szoke’s fourth undefeated season. If he takes the title again, it will be his 13th.

In Pro Sport Bike, Tomas Casas leads with 242 points, Mitch Card has 199 points and Sebastien Tremblay has 164 points.

As this weekend is a doubleheader, both those series could see a change in leaders, but it’s a pretty long shot—Szoke and Casas would have to both crash out early in the weekend for the second-place racers to catch up.

In Amateur Superbike, Luc Labranche leads with 151 points. Labranche has lost the lead in Amateur Sport Bike to Nicolas Meunier, who has 187 points. And, in the Amateur Lightweight Sport Bike series, Jake Leclair has 407 points for the lead.

Practice sessions start tomorrow morning (Friday, August 10) and run until 3:45 PM. Then, qualifying and Superpole fill up the rest of the day. On Saturday, there’s more practice and qualifying in the morning, with racing beginning with the opening ceremonies at 12:45 PM. Sunday follows roughly the same time pattern; see the full weekend schedule at the CSBK website.
