 Who has the oldest Driver T Shirt?

Which driver has the most fans in one of their shirts?

Who has the oldest ‘Merrittville’ T Shirt?

and maybe and most importantly … Who can still fit into their Retro Race T Shirt?

The countdown has been building for three months and this Saturday is the night to wear your Retro Race T Shirt … whether it’s from a few seasons ago or a few decades!

“Hope everyone has enjoyed looking back at some of the T Shirts we’ve used in the Count Down … we sure have,” relates (Merrittville General Manager) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “it will be neat to see who shows up in what – and it will be neat to see how the retooled Duel on the Dirt Series unfolds as well.”

The on track action will be bolstered by the first Home Track Event for Team Merrittville of the retooled Duel on the Dirt Series for the Hoosier Stocks that in 2015 has Team Ohsweken and Team Humberstone joining the battle against the Pro Stocks from the Brighton Speedway.
