Ladies and gentleman start your engines!
Those will be the famous words said this coming Thursday, May 31st when stock car racing returns to the Laird International Raceway for their 2012 OPENING NIGHT festivities.

The 1/3 mile asphalt oval will open it’s gates at the Laird Fairgrounds (20 minutes east of Sault Ste. Marie) to celebrate it’s 14th Anniversary Season.
On the card will be an exciting show consisting in all SIX of the tracks weekly racing divisions;  Twisted Toyz Super Late Models, Caswell Concrete Products Outlaw Modifieds, LIR Modifieds, Maitland Motors Factory Stocks, KM Construction Xtreme Fours and Leisure Living Factory Fours.

Time trials begin at 6 p.m. with racing to follow at 7:30 p.m.

At intermission drivers will be awarded best-looking car awards, while the young fans in attendance will be see their sweet tooth taken care of with the track’s CANDY TOSS.

General admission gates will open at 5:30 p.m. and tickets are $14 for Adults, $12 for Seniors, $6 for Students (12-18)  and $3 for Children 11 & Under.

Three defending champions from 2011 are set to defend their title as Paul McLean (#10 Super Late Model), Jamie Fox (#51 Factory Stock) and Jakob Bourdage (#98 Xtreme Four) are set and expected pitside.
That leaves the questions of who will become the 11th different Factory Four track champion?  And who can drive their Modified to Victory Lane in the LIR or Outlaw Modified divisions?

LIR is home to the Guinness Book of World Records “Youngest Stock Car Driver”.  Eleven-year old, and second-generation pilot Dustin Jackson #61 tested last Thursday Night and is expect to make the jump to the Xtreme Four Division in 2012.  The Sault Ste. Marie, ON product captured the LIR crowds attention one year ago winning his first career feature event during the Hot Rides Cornfest event.

Three female competitors are set to make their mark on the Leisure Living Factory Four Division this summer as Leila Uhlman (#11), Taylor Crockford (#00), Cody-Lee Deevey (#6) and Jenn King (#31) get set to take to the track.  Uhlman, Crockford and Deevey return as veteran status while King will embark on her rookie campaign at LIR.  Rebecca Fewchuk will also be seen in her Maitland Motors Factory Stock and is quite excited to be out racing in the faster car.
