Hello Everyone,

What a phenomenal 2019 Merritt Speedway season. This year we hosted everything from Mini Wedge Specials to the All Star Monster Truck Tour, from our Wood Tic to our Season Championship Weekend, Run What Ya Brung!, and tons of action packed events in between.

We would like to thanks all of our drivers and all of our fans for making this such a successful season. Thank you to everyone who raced with us this year, including our young Mini Wedge drivers. They are our future division champions and we are excited to watch them grow. Thank you to their parents for your support and for bringing them every week.

Congratulations to all of our season championship points winners. Your success is well deserved! Thank you to all of the drivers and fans that came out to our season finale event. Although our car count was not quite what we were hoping it would be, we still paid the full purses for both of our $10,000 events; Late Models and B-Modifieds. Congratulations to those winners as well!

Our season banquet is coming up quick. Soaring Eagle did not have any opening for January, so Saturday November 2nd is the day. Mark your calendars. Tickets are available now, buy them soon so I can mail them to you. More information on how to get your tickets can be found on our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you all at the banquet.

To squash any rumors for next year , Merritt Speedway will be welcoming back ALL racing divisions from 2019. We look forward to hosting more exciting racing action from the UMP Late Models, UMP Mods, B-Mods, Lighting Sprints, factory Stocks, Pro Stocks, 4 Cylinders, and Mini Wedges!

Lastly a hug thank you to our Merritt Speedway staff this year. We could not ask for a greater group of people to work with. Fans, drivers, and staff a like, you made this a spectacular year of racing. We look forward to seeing how much greater the 2020 season can be!

Michael Blackmer
