By Randy Spencer (P.R. Flamboro Speedway) – There is nothing like opening night in any sport. In racing, the paint schemes are new and everyone starts at zero and all have a good a chance of any at being champion. And this year Bennett Chevrolet Flamboro Speedway made some big changes. The drivers spoke and Flamboro listened. The two main things were getting a race director and transponders and for the most part both were up and ready. Doug Leonard who has been a long time race director at Ohsweken and Merrittville Speedways. Many may have known his dad Brock who was a long time pit steward and tech inspector at Flamboro and Ohsweken Speedways. The other thing was transponders. Everything was set up and several drivers had the transponders but some issues out of the tracks hands have delayed the arrival of all the units. We are hoping this will be resolved this week. These two additions will definitely improve the race experience for drivers and fans alike.
