I have always enjoyed Merritt Speedway since the first time there as a spectator to working on the Don Biddle Late Model team out of Prudenville and now as a spectator again. I live in Flushing Michigan and endure the trip up and back just to enjoy the racing and great people at the track. I hope I can continue to enjoy this experience with my family and friends for several more years.

Merritt Speedway is still going strong as one of the best dirt tracks in the state. This upcoming summer (2017) is going to be a huge racing season at Merritt. They have booked a big group of shows, including a couple of Sprint Car shows.
