Grassroots Racing Public Relations
A strong and enthusiastic crowd of drivers, crew members and team officials escaped the cold, damp conditions of the Canadian winter Saturday, February 1st to gather at Fraserville, Ontario and meet the team looking to bring stock car racing back to Kawartha Speedway for the 2014 season.
The 8 event Grassroots Racing Series information session served as an introduction to the group's principals and a chance to learn what to expect when action returns to the popular 3/8th mile oval Friday, June 6th for the season's first green flag. Promoter Andrew McFadden says he was impressed with the turnout and the interest displayed for this exciting new venture.
"I'll admit to being a little nervous," said McFadden after the meeting concluded. "I think we had strong representation from every division that will be running with us throughout the full series' schedule and most of the feedback seemed to be positive. It's still a pretty steep learning curve and there are some puzzle pieces that need to fall into place, but I got a good feeling once everything wrapped-up."
The group is putting together a proposal to work with drivers to help promote their teams and sponsors and McFadden says he enjoyed the opportunity to break away from the rigid routine of some track meetings and spend some one-on-one time with some of the attendees. Series rulebooks were also made available and nearly all 125 copies were collected by drivers of their designated representative.
"As with any new venture, I'm not saying that we'll do everything correctly," confessed McFadden. "I've assembled a solid team with years of experience at other tracks and I'll be counting on their background to get us through the rough spots. No matter what happens, this an exciting time for everyone and it will be great to have racing back at one of the province's premiere motorsports facilities for 2014 and many years to come."
Any driver or team interested in the 8 event Grassroots Racing Series at Kawartha Speedway who couldn't attend the information session can still receive a copy of the series rulebook by contacting Andrew McFadden via e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org. Teams can also take advantage of a special early-bird membership rate of $125.00 for the season, before the March 1st increase to $150. All memberships include a Grassroots Racing t-shirt.
