Modified Rules Unchanged for 2019 at Merrittville Speedway

BY: Steven Petty

THOROLD, ON (December 19, 2018) –  Merrittville Speedway hosted a drivers meeting for the modified division on Tuesday evening with the discussion on what is taking place for the division for the 2019 campaign, the 68th season of racing at Merrittville.

“We will be DIRTcar sanctioned in 2019 for the Modifieds”, commented Merrittville Speedway owner Don Spiece. Merrittville was going to allow drivers that have a Wegner W-16 motor to run alcohol instead of racing fuel due to the high costs of racing fuel in Canada. However, for 2019, the rules for the Modifieds will be unchanged, including the fuel rule which will be using VP Racing Fuel, D113, D109, or D12.

“When the Super DIRTcar Series released their 2019 schedule and Merrittville was not on it, I received phone calls from sponsors, drivers and fans were wondering why”, Spiece explained. “I have been talking to DIRTcar and I can reassure everyone involved that a Big Block Modified Super DIRTcar Series race will take place on the traditional Civic Holiday Monday at Merrittville Speedway in 2019”. 2019 will be seeing drivers move up into the Modified division, as it has become more economically-friendly with the w16 option.

Ryan Susice Wins First Career Super DIRTcar Series Race in the Harvey’s 100 at Merrittville Speedway

THOROLD, ONT – August 6, 2018 – Ryan Susice is not a stranger to Victory Lane at Merrittville Speedway, but this one will go down in history as his first career Super DIRTcar Series race win. Susice started on the pole and fended off all challengers to take the win. Danny Johnson, in the newly christened no. 21J Troyer chassis, was the last driver to get a shot at Susice, but he would fall short and settle for second place. Chad Brachmann, a former Series regular and local hot shoe, stayed in the top three all night, bringing the no. 3 car home on the podium in third.
