Stops at Merrittville and Ransomville to Kick Start August

August 3, 2017 – After two weeks off, the Super DIRTcar Series is set to roar back to life with a pair of stops in the Niagara Region. The Series will visit Merrittville Speedway on Monday, August 7 for the 8th annual Bob St. Amand Memorial 100 and Ransomville Speedway on Tuesday, August 8 for the 33rd Summer Nationals.

The Super DIRTcar Series’ annual stop at Merrittville, located in Thorold, Ont., is always a fan favorite. The race takes place each year on Ontario’s civic holiday and the first Monday in August. This year’s event marks the 33rd Series race at Merrittville, dating back to 1972. The Bob St. Amand Memorial honors the former Merrittville champion and official who passed away in 2009. The race also features the coolest driver introductions in all of motorsports as the cars roll directly in front of the grandstands before taking the green flag for the 100-lap main event.
