@Merrittville •@SOSSprints •September 8, 2016 THOROLD, ONTARIO – Niagara’s Complete Concrete Contractor is set to launch Merrittville Speedway’s 65th Season Finale with a rare Friday Event September 9.
The opening night of the 2016 TUSA Canadian Nationals for the Rev’s Full Throttle Power Sports Modified Lites will feature the final event for the Southern Ontario Sprints in addition to the finale of the Eataly Foods Pro 4 Truck Triple Truck Challenge.
Rounding out the first of three events of the weekend will be the Van Raine Construction 4 Cylinders and Qualifying Heats for Sunday’s Ballhockey.com 100 lap Enduro accelerated by Niagara College.
“You couldn’t ask for a better line up for a Friday Night,” said (Merrittville GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “some of the best Modified Lite Drivers from across North America … Sprint Cars … the finale for our new Truck Series … exciting 4 Cylinder action and who knows what the Enduro Heats will bring!”
In the opener last season, Derek Wagner came home the winner with Paul Klager winning round two which was rain-delayed until Saturday April 23rd’s Rev’s Full Throttle Power Sports Spring Sizzler.
Although some more may be raised – between Lap and Event Package Sponsorships in addition to T Shirt Sales almost $5,000 has been raised to date to be shared by drivers during the annual 2 day event for the Modifed Lites.
