Momentum continues to build as the upstart Grassroots Racing Series gains speed heading toward the first green flag of its inaugural season at Kawartha Speedway.


Numbers are growing every day, bringing strong car counts to the line in every division.  Social media sites are buzzing, as race teams and fans alike can't wait for the action to return to the popular 3/8th mile oval at Fraserville, Ontario.  Series organizer and promoter Andrew McFadden says it's amazing to see all the long hours and hard work finally coming to fruition.


"I'd be lying if I said there haven't been some sleepless nights over the past few months, but we're starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel," said McFadden with a smile.  "The plan is coming together quite nicely and I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens when we swing open the gates for the practice session and the first point paying event."


McFadden and his team have been putting together a strong group of sponsors to take their effort to the next level.  The latest partner to come to the table is Belleville, Ontario's Associated Muffler & Brake, who will supply trophies to feature race winners throughout the 8 event Grassroots Racing Series schedule.  Associated Muffler owner Tim Tomlinson says he was impressed with McFadden's 'Cinderella' story and is thrilled to get in on the ground floor of this exciting motorsports venture.


"We've sponsored some local racers over the years, but the chance to get involved with a new series at one of the finest motorsports venues in the province is a tremendous experience," admitted Tomlinson.  "The guys who work here and even our customer base are big supporters of short track racing.  We've had some good word of mouth advertising going on since we first started putting this deal together.  I'm really impressed with the steps Andrew McFadden has taken to bring action back to Kawartha and I hope he's successful for many years to come.  I can't wait for the first main event checkered flag and hand-over their Associate Muffler & Brake winner's hardware."


The Grassroots Racing Series will hold an open test session - along with the Ontario High School Electronic Vehicle Challenge Event - Friday, May 16thstarting at 10:00.  Action gets underway for the season with Late Model, Thunder Car, Mini Stock, 4Fun and Legends racing Friday, June 6th.  Full series details can always be found by clicking the 'Grassroots Racing' tab atwww.kawarthaspeedway.com.
