McCLURKIN PROPERTIES NEW FLAMBORO SPONSOR

HAMILTON – When Mother Nature finally gets her act together (it is spring, after all) the 2018 race season at Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway plans to be one of the best in years.

Some new additions and tweaks will make it an exciting time for racers and fans alike.

The speedway is proud to announce a new (but old) addition to the sponsor list. McClurkin Properties of Cambridge, Ont., are stepping up as the main sponsor for the Pure Stock division. Bob McClurkin and partner Mark Hogan have been long-time supporters of racing at Flamboro and have also sponsored the Fireball 5 race team for years. Budget Tire was the sponsor in 2017 but have decided to step away this season and Flamboro would like to thank them for their support.

Racers will see some improvement as extra lighting will be in place for every race this season. The dark corners have always been an issue, so track owners John and Frank Casale have added some lights to hopefully rectify that problem.

Practice day, weather permitting, is this Saturday, April 21, from 1 p.m. till 7 p.m. The grandstands will not be open for viewing that day, just the pits. Admission is $15. The season opens April 28.
