In just 2 days, Merrittville Speedway will open with Practice Day for all 5 Lucas Oil Weekly Racing Series Divisions.

The Saturday April 20th Event may be one of the most important practices with two divisions in big events right off the start – the following week.   “We had some cars on the race track over the weekend with the BRP Driving School and a Sunday Night session,” informs (Merrittville Speedway GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “despite the weather leading up to it …the track came up in good shape – everyone will be getting geared up for the Seaway Mall Spring Sizzler and the rest of the season.”  

Practice Day should provide Race Fans with something they have been waiting for since last fall – race cars on the track. For Race Teams – it’s Spring Training and the pre-season all wrapped up in a one day session to test out the new car and for many a new division.
