Time running out to show your support
for the 4th Annual
Bob St. Amand Sr Memorial – Souvenir T Shirts running low
If you have been following the Big Block Super DIRTcar Series in 2013 … you might now that the next event on the schedule is Monday August 5th and the 4th Annual Bob St. Amand Sr. 100.
Race fans and especially race teams will see quite an event presented by L. St. Amand Enterprises and St. Amand Auto & Truck Repair … friends of the family and the local business community all involved “What can we say,” relates (Merrittville GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “the entire racing community has rallied around Bob’s family once again … it is shaping up to be the event of the summer!”
“It’s something he would liked to have been a part of,” prided Bob St. Amand Jr., “Merrittville drivers … and visitors alike … the drivers all meant so much to him … everyone in the family is doing their part.” While the family-run companies are sponsoring the event – it is inviting everyone to take on a challenge and participate in many rewarding levels that are available.
“We’re proud to announce that almost all laps have been sponsored,” reveals (Bob Sr.’s granddaughter) Brooke St. Amand, “the response for the 100, Hoosier Stocks and recently added Sportsman event has been overwhelming.”

“With the event a little more than one week away there are limited sizes available in Bob Sr. T Shirts,” added Heather St. Amand, “you can pick yours up at the front gate leading up to race day while they last the next two Saturdays … but don’t wait until it’s too late.”
“The support of our major sponsor packages has been tremendous as well,” added Bob Jr., “ it all goes back to the race teams … race fans and companies alike have stepped forward.”
Bob St. Amand Senior was Merrittville Speedway’s 1972 Modified Points Champion and was inducted into the L. St. Amand Enterprises Wall of Fame by the Merrittville Speedway Reunion Committee in 2002.
