Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

-Benjamin Franklin

If you’re a fan of craft beer and missed Barney & Oscar’s Feature Friday Night Race presented by Livestock and G-Shock on October 10th, don’t worry; the next event is just around the corner. On November 7th, join us in the beer garden with Burnaby’s own Dageraad Brewing. But don’t wait until then to get started on your Beer Passport…and yes, it really is as amazing as it sounds!

Barney & Oscar’s Feature Friday Night Race Series p/b Livestock and G-Shock is supposed to be about showcasing the best our area has to offer both on and off the track. While the racing is going and the music playing, we’re showcasing one of the area’s fine microbreweries in our beer garden (must be 19 or older with valid ID).

How it Works:

Each night you come into the beer garden you get one stamp. Collect all of the stamps and you’ll walk away from the last FFNRS event in February with a commemorative pint glass (while supplies last). And, as a special bonus, make it out to any night of the Burnaby 4 Day, and in February we’ll fill up your new pint glass the first time on the house.

“So what happens if I didn’t make it out to one of the previous races,” you may ask. Not to worry! You can catch up by buying a pint (or sleeve where pints aren’t available) at one of the following locations, be sure to ask for the stamp. Then come out to the remaining FFNRS events to fill up the rest of your passport.

How are you spending your Halloween? We’ll be going fast and turning left, and we encourage you to join us! We’ll kick racing off 30 minutes later than usual this week to help anyone get to the track that has to take their little ones out trick-or-treating first. That being said, keep your costumes on; each rider’s ‘mark’ in the Handicap will be based on how good your costume is (in addition to ability). A couple of reminders:

  • If you plan on racing in your costume it can’t impede motion, restrict vision, or possibly come off!
  • Please bring a friend to the races, we’ll need plenty of holders!

On Deck: Feature Friday Night Race Series #1

October 6, 2014 | By | No Comments

They’re back!

Join us for our first Feature Friday Night Race Series presented by Livestock. As always, the racing is meant to highlight the very best of track cycling; a showcase of the diversity that makes this sport, and it’s people, great. The night’s feature events will include an invitational match sprint tournament and a Madison. Categories include: A grade, B grade, a kiddie kilo, and, in honor of Junior National Championships coming to Burnaby, U17/U19 women and men. In the higher categories racers will compete for their turn to wear the coveted Leader’s Jersey presented by Vie 13 Kustom Apparel and if they can hang, the FFNRS Champion’s Jersey being presented at the series finale on February 13th.

But what spectacle would be complete without great food and good drink? At each of our Feature Friday Nights we’ll also showcase one of the regions finest craft breweries in our beer garden. Anyone 19 and over can pick up a Beer Passport and get a stamp from Hoyne Brewery who will be on tap first!

In addition we’ll have WINGS on hand dishing out some delicious eats.

What are you waiting for, invite your friends and come out to the velodrome, one of only two indoor tracks in the country we might add.
