The Stevens family passion for stock car racing at Merrittville Speedway continues with a third generation, following the appointment of Melissa Stevens as Race Director.
The granddaughter of the late legendary Ray Stevens and youngest daughter of the late Flyin’ Brian Stevens, Melissa brings a lifetime love of stock car racing to the Race Director position.
Melissa grew up at Merrittville and has wonderful memories of family and friends enjoying both the races and the barbecues and corn roasts in the pits afterwards! Racing at Merrittville has always created a family environment. Yes there are intense rivalries on the track but Melissa knows firsthand how great the friendships are in the pits and in the grandstands. Merrittville Speedway has great drivers, great teams and the best fans anywhere.
In the past 15 years Melissa has experienced every aspect of dirt track racing throughout the northeast United States as well as numerous tracks in Ontario and Quebec. As a crucial part of a professional race team Melissa became very well versed in how numerous race tracks operate. Exactly what they do right and what they do wrong. She knows what a race team and a race track need to do to be successful. She brings years of experience in scheduling, scoring, qualifying procedures, varying rules and widely differing track requirements.
As race director she will strive to provide a fair and unbiased environment. No driver or race team will ever be favoured or above the rules. It is imperative that all rules be applied and enforced consistently and fairly - there can be no tolerance for favouritism.
Melissa is looking forward to a great season and wishes to thank Don Spiece and the management at Merrittville Speedway for the opportunity to bring all of her expertise and enthusiasm to a successful and exciting 69th season at Merrittville Speedway!
