Merrittville hometown heroes ready to take on Big-Block Modified stars in Bob St. Amand Sr. Memorial

Super DIRTcar Series heads westward to Thorold track for Canadian Civic Holiday race night


THOROLD, ONTARIO - Friday, July 26, 2013 - The Super DIRTcar Big-Block Modified Series kicks off its August western swing with a historic show Monday, August 5, at Merrittville Speedway. Now dubbed the Bob St. Amand Sr. Memorial, the Canadian Civic Holiday celebratory race night has taken over the speedway every August since 1972.

Modified racing legend Will Cagle won the inaugural event in 1972, and since then, Merrittville's local racers have been stepping up to the plate every year to try and beat DIRTcar's best on their home turf. Last year, St. Catharine's Mike Bowman became one of many hometown heroes to make it to Victory Land at the annual event.

"It was something that I never expected to ever achieve," said Bowman, whose small-block Modified triumphed over the Big Blocks. "I used to sit in the stands and watch all of those guys come in from out of town when I was young, and to beat them is a dream come true."

MALTA, N. Y. - Super DIRTcar Series Big-Block Modified start Brett Hearn is no stranger to Victory Lane, after taking last year's NAPA Auto Parts Super DIRT Week XLII VP Small Engine Fuels 200, Eastern States 200, and Mr. DIRT Track U. S. A. at Lebanon Valley Speedway. But when it comes to The Big Show in July, the win means something a little different to Hearn.

Hearn has yet to take the trophy at the show he promotes, even though he came close last year before a late-race charge by Bobby Varin. When he looks ahead to The Big Show 5 Tuesday, July 9, at Albany-Saratoga Speedway, he said winning as a driver "would be nice," but winning as a promoter was more important.

"Albany-Saratoga is a beautiful place to being with, so it with be a really fun race," Hearn said of his annual event, which last year moved to the Malta track.
