Big night planned at Mer­rittville Speed­way

The Welland Tribune - - Sports -

Satur­day night’s rac­ing at Mer­rittville Speed­way will fea­ture the fourth an­nual Retro Race night.

The night, pre­sented by Gas­ton’s Auto Sales, looks back at 67 years of rac­ing through a va­ri­ety of T-shirts worn to the event.

“With our Re­union Night a month away, our Retro Race T-shirt Night kicks off the countdown and brings back a lot of mem­o­ries for us all,” said Mer­rittville owner Don Spiece, who him­self is a for­mer racer.

“We were quite sur­prised at what our fans still have whether it is a favourite driver or a favourite event or for­mer Mer­rittville T-shirts, we’ve seen what peo­ple are shar­ing on so­cial me­dia … we hope to see them dur­ing the event as well.”

The Hoosier Stocks will be fea­tured as six di­vi­sions will race. It is the sec­ond home-track event for 2018 In­sta-Pan­els Duel on the Dirt Se­ries in ad­di­tion to the S & W Ser­vice Cen­tre 358 Mod­i­fieds, David Chevro­let Sports­man, Van­sickle Pet Valu & Groom­ing­dale’s Mod Lites, Cen­tral Fab­ri­cat­ing & Weld­ing 4 Cylin­ders and the Dave’s Auto & Speed Cen­tre V-6 Di­vi­sions.

“Gas­ton Auto Sales has been a long­time sup­porter of many race teams over the years,” Spiece said.

“We’re proud to wel­come them back for another event.

“Maybe some fans or race teams might have a Gas­ton’s race shirt from back in the day.”

Grand­stands open at 5:30 p.m. with show­time set for 7 p.m.
