When the checkered flag flew on the 55th running of the Daytona 500, Merrittville Speedway Race Fans had to know that the start of the Thorold DIRTcar sanctioned facility’s 62nd Season is just 62 days away and counting down.  


“Once racing finishes for another year in the fall – it seems like it takes forever to get to Speed Weeks in Florida,” said (Merrittville Speedway GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “but when it wraps up … you know that our season will be here real quick. While the race to the Spring Sizzler picks up speed – our preseason has some dates and deadlines to keep in mind.”
