THOROLD, ON – The Lucas Oil Slick Mist Family of Car Care products are set to assist Merrittville Speedway’s Reunion Committee in welcoming back many old friends Saturday July 14th when the Thorold track celebrates it’s 61st Anniversary Season. Once again hosted by Merrittville Speedway’s Reunion Committee headed by Chairmen Rick Kavanagh, the night salutes 61 years of dirt racing excitement at one of Canada’s oldest race tracks in addition to the 22nd Inductions into the L. St. Amand Enterprises Wall of Fame.
“Lucas Slick Mist out performs the competition,” acknowledges (Merrittville Speedway GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, adding, “with the Jerry Winger Memorial set for 50 laps … the winner will surely have to shine as well.”
In the 61st Anniversary Season, the Bobcat of Hamilton 358 Modifieds will be featured in the Jerry Winger Memorial Lucas Oil Slick Mist 50 Main Event along with regular events for Lucas Oil Weekly Racing Series Divisions – the Hoosier Stocks, J&S Heating and Air Conditioning Modified Lites Original Pizza Logs Sportsman and the Turn 4 Collision 4 Cylinders plus Vintage Cars.
“As we race towards the 65th” anticipates Committee Chairman Rick Kavanagh, “we look forward to meeting with our former drivers and alumni … to catch up and reminisce and take a look back at how the race cars were like back in the day … we couldn’t do it without them and our partners … Lucas Oil … CAA Niagara … Auto FX and Big Red Market.”
The Reunion Committee is also made up of former drivers – Jeno Begolo, Ted Renshaw and Terry Huffman as well as Mark Swartz and the Speedway’s Erica Bicknell and Jim Irvine. Kavanagh is the son of former Speedway owner Ken Kavanagh who is also a Wall of Fame Member.
The Reunion Committee has made their selections for the 2012 Wall of Fame and like since the start – each year’s honorees do not find out until Reunion night.
A huge part of the night is all the reminiscing that takes place in celebration of the track’s now 61 consecutive seasons. The Drivers of the past enjoy meeting with the fans of today – many that can remember the early days of the sport. Just as drivers today can be second or third generation, so too are some fans.
