“It was more than 30 years ago that the ESS made their first visit to Merrittville,” said ESS President Chuck Miller, “and still today the annual visit is always a highlight on our schedule … the Thorold track sure has some great fans and they love Sprint Cars.”

“We’re happy to host an early celebration of both the Canadian and the US Birthdays with the mid-season Fan Appreciation Special,” adds Bicknell-Jones, “4 divisions of racing … $1.00 Hot Dogs all night in the Grandstand and FIREWORKS … there’s definitely something on the menu for everyone.”  

After the last Einstein Construction Group Canada Tour Event at Autodrome Granby, Sunbury PA racer Mark Smith leads Matt Tanner, Jeff Cooke, Alain Bergeron and Jason Barney in the mini-series while defending and 5 time Overall Champion Steve Poirer leads the points.

Einstein Construction Group is new to the ESS Canada Tour and for many seasons has supported Sprint Car Drivers Tommy Wickham and Paulie Colagiovanni.

Every year the field is bolstered by local sprint car talent and 2015 will be no different. Doc Magilligans Restaurant and Irish Pub will host the Dash for Cash. For more information on Niagara’s favorite Irish Pub visit

The annual Gary Cunningham Memorial featuring the Lucas Oil Empire Super Sprints is a memorial established by his son Travis and the family as Travis grew up with his dad sharing a love of racing through the Go-Karts ranks up to the 358 Modifieds and Sprint Cars. "My dad was everything to me in my racing career," said Travis remembering his dad, "we had so much fun together.” Gary Cunningham, a former drag racer and engine builder, died in December 2010, at the age of 61, after a six-month battle with cancer. Cunningham was one of the best engine-builders around, and when it came to camshafts, Gary was the best man in the country.
