THOROLD, ONTARIO – If you have managed to dig yourself out from one of the biggest winter storms since the Blizzard of ’77 – keep in mind that an early spring is still in the forecast.  

With some of our J&S Heating and Air Conditioning Modified Lites already in action during  the TUSA Modified Lite Winternationals at the East Bay Raceway Park and the DIRTcar Nationals about to kick off at the Volusia Speedway Park in Florida means that for Merrittville Speedway’s Lucas Oil Weekly Racing Series Race Teams – time is running out to save and take advantage of preseason special pricing.  

“February 27th means the Seaway Mall Spring Sizzler is roughly 2 months away,” reminds (Merrittville Speedway GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “to make it convenient in advance of the March 1st deadline … our Winter Office will be open extended hours”  

Merrittville Speedway’s Winter Office will be open Wednesday February 27th until 8 PM for those that are unable to visit during Business Hours.  

Drivers from 2012 that attained 75% Attendance with their Driver VIP Pass certificates have until March 1st to take advantage of the special offer they received at the Banquet.  

Returning drivers from the Turn 4 Collision 4 Cylinder Division can purchase their Driver VIP Passes for $ 225.00 – a savings of $ 150.00 based on season pass pricing. For the Hoosier Stocks, J&S Heating and Air Conditioning Modified Lites, Rick’s Delivery Sportsman and Bobcat of Hamilton 358 Modified Divisions – 2013 Driver VIP Passes are $ 275.00 – a $ 100.000 savings.  

Drivers, Crew Members and Car Owners can purchase Merrittville Pit Season Passes until March 1st for $375.00. After March 1st they are still available but at the $ 400.00 Rate.   While Merrittville Memberships are included in both Driver VIP and Season Pit Passes, another option is a 2013 Membership at $75.00 which saves the member on weekly Pit Admission fees. DIRTcar Memberships Forms will also be available.  

For 2013, Pit Pricing will be as follows - Merrittville Members … $20.00, DIRTCar Members … $25.00 and for Non Members … $30.00 at each weekly event.
