In just 2 days, Merrittville Speedway will open with Practice Day for all 5 Lucas Oil Weekly Racing Series Divisions. The Saturday April 21st Event may be one of the most important practices with three divisions in big events right off the start – the following week.
“We had some cars on the race track over the weekend with the BRP Driving School and a Saturday Night session,” informs (Merrittville Speedway GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “we had some good weather and the track came up in good shape – everyone will be getting geared up for the Spring Sizzler.”
Practice Day should provide Race Fans with something they have been waiting for since last fall – race cars on the track. For Race Teams – it’s Spring Training and the pre-season all wrapped up in a one day session to test out the new car and for many a new division.
