Stock Car racing
Aired Friday nights during the summer, in 1953 and 1954.
Considering CBC Sports has broadcast the Canadian Grand Prix from Montreal and the Molson Indy from Toronto, it's not much of a stretch to learn that it all started in 1953 with stock car racing from the Canadian National Exhibition. The CNE ran and still runs from mid August to Labour Day every year.
