Merritt Speedway track management is pleased to announce UMP Modifieds will be competing for a massive bonus during one weekend of racing this summer.

Hello everyone! The season has officially arrived. Very exciting time. This past Saturday we held our first Test & Tune, and had an impressive 68 cars on the property! The track had to be in as good of shape as I’ve seen it since I took over the track in spring of 2015. We have one more practice schedule for this Wednesday from 5:30 to Dusk. The new American Ethanol Mini Wedge track in the infield between turns 1-2 is in place and is undoubtedly going to be a riot for the kids. We’re really excited about this edition, and it was already fun watching them practice last Saturday!

Happy April everybody! Hope your spring break was safe and enjoyable if you took a trip with the family someplace. The sun is starting to show itself more and more, and shorts have started to work their way out from the bottom of the drawers. That can only mean one thing… racing is here!

Tomorrow I will be meeting with a grandstand assembly crew to review the upcoming project and prepare for what will be a busy spring. The bleachers and Musco lights will be set to go in soon and it should really change the look and feel of Merritt Speedway in 2017!
Hello racers! Just a quick update on the latest happenings from our end. I hope the work on your race cars is coming along well as we prepare for what really does look to be a great 2017 season at Merritt Speedway.
Hi everybody! Are you excited? I'm excited! Racing season is almost here! With less than 2 weeks to the start of NASCAR's Daytona Speedweeks and less than 3 weeks to the Daytona 500, opening night at Merritt Speedway will be here before you know it!
Hello everyone! It’s been a few weeks since my last thoughts update. I hope everyone’s off-season is going well. With this unseasonably warm winter, it has me in race mode already, and I’m guessing many of you feel the same way.
Merritt Speedway recently trimmed some of the fat from their longtime slogan, formerly known as ‘Northern Michigan’s Premier Dirt Track’. Going in to the 2017 season, Merritt Speedway will simply use ‘Michigan’s Premier Dirt Track’, making a bold commitment to both racers and fans across the state.
