Thorold, On – The Dirt Modified Nostalgia Tour made its first ever visit to the Merrittville Speedway here Saturday night as part of Nostalgia night celebrating the track’s 70th anniversary.

In the 15 lap feature go Mark Shadwell of Hamilton, On jumped out to the early lead with Rick St Pierre in tow. The pair would swap the lead for several laps until Matt Barbour of Brockville, On would enter the mix running the top of the Speedway. The trio would then dice for the remainder of the feature with Barbour pulling away for the win. St Pierre would exit the track on the final lap after contact with Jeff Ciglich with two to go. Shadwell would come home second with Ciglich completing the podium.
