December 19, 2013 THOROLD, ONTARIO – HANDLE IT ... HAUL IT ... GET IT DONE – three sentences that describe equipment known for being tough, versatile and agile - earning a reputation of being 'One Tough Animal.' HANDLE IT ... HAUL IT ... GET IT DONE are three New Year's resolutions that drivers at Merrittville Speedway may aspire to as they prepare for the competition in the Bobcat of Hamilton DIRTcar 358 Modified Division in 2014.

The job on everyone's mind once the racing season begins – dethroning 23 time Bobcat of Hamilton 358 Modified Champion Pete Bicknell.

"What can you say about last season," said John Quast, owner of Bobcat of Hamilton who will return for the fourth straight year as Title Sponsor of the Thorold facility's premier division, "...12 different winners with Pete Bicknell taking home just 2 wins en route to an unprecedented 23rd title ... year in and year out – he's definitely one tough animal. Through-out every division ... the competition was second to none and Congratulations once again to two time Sportsman Champ Cody McPherson and his Bobcat of Hamilton Team! "

"Once again we are thrilled to host John and everyone from Bobcat of Hamilton – they take great pride in showcasing who they are," announced (Merrittville Speedway GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, adding, " their involvement also provides excitement for their customers and staff alike all season."
