Scotia Speedworld in Enfield, Nova Scotia will anchor the schedule in 2018.

The Series will open at the 3/10-mile oval on Saturday, May 26th, then return for a mid-Summer event on Saturday, August 11th and conclude the year at the track on Saturday, September 15th. The Tour will race the same night as the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour.
Events at both Oyster Bed Speedway and Petty International Raceway will also be raced the same night as Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour events. The Oyster Bed Bridge, Prince Edward Island bullring will host the Maritime League of Legends Tour on Saturday, June 30th and Saturday, August 4th while the Series will tow to River Glade, New Brunswick for events on Saturday, July 21st and Saturday, August 25th.
Riverside International Speedway will bring the Maritime League of Legends Tour to the historic James River, Nova Scotia oval on two occasions. Riverside will host the only Friday night show for the series on Friday, July 13th during the IWK 250 weekend and will return on Saturday, August 18th as a part of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series weekend.
Speedway 660 in Geary, New Brunswick tends to play a key role in determining a champion in the Series. For the third straight year, the Maritime League of Legends Tour will return to compete on SpeedWeekend with an event slated for Saturday, September 1st. The race will serve as the penultimate round for 2018.
All feature events are scheduled for 50-laps. Schedule is subject to change without notice. A full list of start times and event names will be announced as the season nears. Marketing opportunities are available by contacting the Maritime League of Legends Board of Directors.
The season schedule was one of the first orders of business for new Maritime League of Legends President Jason Foster. Foster and Vice President Jonathan Bull were appointed to their positions at the Annual General Meeting for the Series in December 2017. Among the next steps for the Series is a new website, which is expected to debut in March 2018.
In 2017, Waylon Farrell of Conception Bay South, Newfoundland used consistency to win his second consecutive Maritime League of Legends Tour championship.
