McDonald to welcome fans Saturday at Fremont
By Brian Liskai
FREMONT, Ohio (Wednesday, June 6, 2007)
- "I'm lovin it!" That what Ronald
McDonald had to say about the night he
has planned at Fremont Speedway
Saturday, June 9.
Not only will Ronald be on hand at "The
Track That Action Built," handing
out goodies for the kids, but the Tackle
Box II will also sponsor 10
bicycles to be given away to kids 10 years
old and under.
And for mom and dad - the racing action
will surely excite and entertain.
The fire-breathing, mud-slinging Fort
Ball Pizza Palace 410 Sprints and the
Fremont Fence Dirt Trucks will be in action
on McDonald's Night. And, since
school is out for the summer, the popular
student-transports will race two
special events - one pitting professional
school bus drivers against each
other, and the second race featuring race
drivers behind the wheel!
The ladies will also get behind the wheel
of the dirt trucks for the
traditional Powder Puff race.
It will be a special night for the dirt
trucks, with associate sponsorship from
Securance Services Inc. they will be competing
for $1,000 to win in the feature event!
And thanks to Excuses Lounge in
Sandusky, the truck drivers will also
qualify (one lap) with the quickest
time taking home $100 (second quick, $75;
third quick, $70; fourth quick,
$65; fifth quick, $50; sixth quick, $45;
seventh quick, $35; eighth quick,
$30; ninth quick, $20; and tenth quick,
In addition, BMS Engines and Bob's Machine
Shop of Fostoria are going to pay
the winner of each heat race $50 with
second taking home $30 and third place
Fans are encouraged to get to the track
early, as there will be an autograph
session for the Fort Ball Pizza Palace
410 Sprint drivers along the
grandstand midway at 7 p.m. Drivers are
encouraged to bring their t-shirts
and other merchandise to sell as there
will be tables set up.
