August 28, 2013 THOROLD, ONTARIO – KC Auto Parts Victory Lane at Merrittville Speedway welcomed two, eight- time feature winners Tuesday Night as the 20th Lucas Oil Kart Weekly Racing Series closed the month of August.
“Dalton Slack wins Merrittville on his 2014 slack! That’s a bad fast little ride!” was the tweet by the karter’s dad @BobbySlack just minutes after winning his 8th Feature of the season in the RCM Racing Equipment Junior 1 Division.
Slack, now a partner in Bicknell Racing Products is a former Kart Racer himself and originator of the Slack Chassis that is now owned and manufactured by Performance Manufacturing.
Another 8 time winner as well was Corey Bodman in the Philbrick Farm & Garden Equipment Wilder Racing Engines Senior Animal Division.

In the Cassell Manufacturing Senior Fun Division, Ashley Moore visited Victory Lane for the third time of the season.
