Still time to build your car for this
Saturday’ Enduro Qualifier

If you would like to race hard and get dirty – there is still time to get your car ready for Saturday June 24th’s Enduro Qualifier – you can get a lot done today … the longest day of the year!

“It’s pretty basic,” said Merrittville’s Don Spiece, “it’s a street car with safety modification – everything else is stock as you found it … an Enduro Car is not a race car – it’s a car that races. Maybe it’s time you placed a spring-time beating on your Winter Beater … someone you know may have a wreck that they want to get rid of or your closest automotive recycler may have something for you!

The Vansickle Pet Valu and Groomingdale’s Enduro Qualifiers accelerated by Niagara College will blow your mind with a high octane blast of hard turns and twisted metal. Enduro Racing is part SCIENCE, part STUNT, part INFO-TAINMENT and always 100% ADRENALINE and OUTRAGEOUS FUN.

Now’s the time to push up your sleeves and get your hands dirty as cars will be jacked up, busted apart and pushed to the limit and beyond. You’ll crash, skid, swerve, slam and demolish your way through each Qualifier leading up to the 100.

Jeremy Cooper won the Series Opener back on May 20th’s Pen Centre Night. After June 24th’s Avondale Night and the second round – the final Qualifier is set for W Abrasives Night Saturday July 29th.

“Vansickle Pet Valu is all about fun times and great experiences with our pets,” said franchisee Jeff Riley, “and Enduro Racing is all about fun times and great experiences as well … we look forward to hosting the qualifiers and the 100 lap Finale… we’d like to issue a challenge – Get yourself a car and join in!”
