SMS Machine Tools Night - Saturday June 15th at Merrittville Speedway promises to be a great night out for the whole family - especially since it’s the first Autograph Night of the new season benefiting the Canadian National Autism Foundation.

The on track action will be bolstered by the second Home Track Event of the 2013 Duel on the Dirt Big 6 Series for the Hoosier Stocks. The Main Event will join events for the Lucas Oil Weekly Racing Series Divisions – the Bobcat of Hamilton 358 Modifieds, Rick’s Delivery Sportsman, J&S Heating and Air Conditioning Modified Lites and the Turn 4 Collision 4 Cylinders.

“Bringing the Duel on the Dirt Event and our first Autograph Night together on SMS Night should make for an entertaining night … and a packed house,” relates (Merrittville General Manager) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “we are honored once again to assist the Canadian National Autism Foundation.”

In the first Duel on the Dirt Home Track event – part of the Zavitz Financial Strategies and Employee Benefits Victoria Day Celebration back on May 20th – Kevin Knapp came home the winner.

“It was pretty wild out there,” remarked Kevin Knapp in Victory Lane a little more than 2 weeks ago.It will be pretty wild for race fans on June 15th as well when the entire pit area fills the front-stretch for the Autograph Session.

“KIDS RACE is all about having family fun for a great cause," said the CNAF President Tina Fougere,   "It is all about family for me and accepting our loved ones with autism. We couldn't ask for a better place in the Niagara Region to host our family event than with the wonderful people at Merrittville Speedway who have opened their doors, but most importantly their hearts, to our cause.”

“KIDS RACE” was started in 2010 as an idea to create a new platform for autism research and awareness. It wasn’t too long after speaking and working alongside track officials, drivers and fans, that a common bond was formed. We realized that passion, dedication, family and the love for what we do, was something we all shared. “KIDS RACE” will only take place once this year, but autism doesn't stop.
