As the biggest and brightest stars prepare for the PINTY’S ALL-STAR CURLING SKINS GAME, (January 16-18 from Banff Alberta live on TSN) - the biggest and brightest drivers are preparing for Merrittville Speedway’s 64th season and the PINTY’S 358 Modified Division in particular.

“It’s wonderful to have a sponsor like Pinty’s join us … they are so engaged and committed to growing the sport (racing), said (Merrittville GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “for several years Pinty’s have been avid supporters of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series … and in 2015 – race fans will see them every Saturday Night as the new division sponsor of our 358 Modified Division.”

Former champion Chad Brachmann of Sanborn NY kicked off the 2014 Championship Chase with a win for his new race team for his only win of the season – settling for the runner-up spot behind first time champion and three time winner Mat Williamson of St. Catharines. 8 other drivers would visit victory lane throughout the season – a roster that did not include 23-time champ Pete Bicknell.

“We are looking forward to celebrating the stars of Merrittville and broadening our support of racing,” said Anthony Spiteri, Vice President of Marketing, Pinty’s Delicious Foods. “Dirt Track Racing and Pinty’s are the perfect partners. Merrittville is in the business of entertainment and Pinty’s is in the business of eatertainment. We are fans too and can’t wait for the new season to take to the track.”

The 2015 Racing Season for Merrittville Speedway’s Pinty’s 358 Modifieds in addition to the Rick’s Delivery Sportsman Division will pick up speed with Driver Meetings set for Sunday January 18th at Bicknell Racing Products in St. Catharines – the day after the annual Bicknell Racing Products Open House.
