Excitement Building for Pen Centre’s
David Chevrolet King of the Crates
Series Finale     


It’s nearing the end of August and young families from across Niagara are racing around getting ready to go back to school. A visit to the Pen Centre - Niagara’s largest shopping destination which features 180 stores and services and one million square feet of shopping fun is a must for all the hottest new fashions.  

Also a must to visit is when the Pen Centre presents a night of racing fun at Merrittville Speedway Saturday August 24th when the Lucas Oil Weekly Racing Series Event will definitely provide some HOT dirt track excitement.   “Merrittville had a few seasons completed when the Pen was built as an outside strip mall,” remarks (Merrittville GM) Erica Bicknell-Jones, “shoppers can now enjoy a bold, bright and beautiful shopping experience … one that will include Target in November.”  

The target on August 24th for the Rick’s Delivery Sportsman Division will be the 2013 David Chevrolet King of the Crates Series Title.   Going into the 40 lap $1,000 to win Finale, Greg Panunte leads current overall Point Leader Gary Lindberg by a single point. Defending King of the Crates and overall Champion Cody McPherson sits 13 points back with his cousin BJ Willard just one point back of him. Brad Rouse is fifth – 31 points off Panunte.   McPherson took the David Chevrolet King of the Crates Series Opener on Baron Roofing & Siding Night June 8th while Willard took Round 2 on Tim Hortons Night August 3rd.  

For the Bobcat of Hamilton 358 Modifieds, Hoosier Stocks, J&S Heating and Air Conditioning Modified Lites and Turn 4 Collision 4 Cylinders … Pen Centre’s Night will be the second last point event of the season and some of the races could go right down to the wire.
