Ball Hockey International Night will benefit the Canadian National Autism Foundation. The KIDSRACE Event will find the Hoosier Stocks in the spotlight in another Duel on the Dirt Series Home Track Event Saturday June 14th.  

The on track action will be bolstered by an Autograph Night that will find drivers and their cars on display on the front stretch from all 5 of the Lucas Oil Weekly Racing Series Divisions. Joining the Hoosier Stocks will be 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.  

Jason Fontaine won the first Duel on the Dirt Home Track Event of 2014 in the Mini-Series that has our own Hoosier Stocks challenge the Brighton Speedway Pro Stocks in a friendly rivalry amongst some of the best full fendered drivers in the province of Ontario.  

“We are quite honored to assist the Canadian National Autism Foundation for another year,” relates (Merrittville General Manager) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “Ball Hockey International Night should provide some exciting on track action and with the autograph session … it’s a great way to meet your favorite drivers.”  

“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.
