Merritt Speedway has rescheduled the Indian Summer Special for next Saturday, October 21. The long-range forecast currently shows nice weather, maybe even in the 70’s for next Saturday!

Hello everybody! Boy would it be nice to have had racing scheduled last weekend or this upcoming weekend, with these temps and dry weather forecasts! Those Indian Summer days look like they might be here a little earlier this year, but we will have to wait and see how it works out.

Good afternoon fellow racing fans! Hope you each had a nice Labor Day Weekend! This past weekend we closed out our 2017 regular season and the points championships in all of our classes. In addition, we hosted the American Ethanol Late Model and Modified tours.

Good afternoon! Well just like that, our big World of Outlaws weekend is behind us. The season has continued to cruise on by and now we’re down to just one points weekend of 2017 remaining. Last Saturday night we had beautiful perfect weather, with sunshine and mid-70’s all day long. Thank you to the fans that joined us Saturday, and were treated to some great racing.

First up, I want to recognize an omission that was accidentally made last week. The same few people have ruled the Four Cylinder class for a while, but Austin Harnick has run up front and got the victory on August 12. Congratulations to him and the family on their triumph, and we’re sorry for missing that in last week’s thoughts.

Hello all. Hope you each had a nice weekend! Saturday was interesting weather wise, as it was sunny and beautiful when I left Cadillac, and when I arrived at Merritt, it was soaked with puddles everywhere. Things cleared up late in the evening and we had a nice car count and good turnout for Fan Appreciation Night. Our grounds crew accidentally clipped the scoring loop line while weed whacking last week, which forced us to skip qualifying while that was fixed, and was good to go for racing. The autograph session went well, and we want to thank all the racers who brought goodies, candy and signed for the fans. Always cool to see.

Hope you all had an enjoyable weekend! Last Saturday, we hosted 108 race cars on our Champion Recognition Night. Thank you to all the competitors who came out and put on a great show for a solid crowd. Special thank you to the former speedway champs who came to the front stretch pre-race and the meal served as well. It was also my pleasure to recognize the Ancel family, as we honored the late Rod Ancel. It was a joy to have them all out at the track last week, as we presented them with a photo, as well as flowers and had a group photo taken.

Hello all. Hope your weekend was great! Last Saturday we had some beautiful weather, and our first ‘regular’ night of racing in several weeks. The racing was outstanding as well, but the fan count was a bit light from what we expected. Maybe too many specials? Anyway, hopefully we can turn that around moving forward for the final five weekends of racing.

Happy Monday Merritt family! Another not ideal Saturday weather wise hit us with dark clouds until closer to race time. Fortunately, it did get sunny and we had a nice turnout of fans in the stands to watch what was a great night of racing and value!
