Thank you for coming back for another year of racing, thank you to all of our new Racers! We have been working really hard this winter, even though it was a tough one for many of us. We have Herman Hordahl helping us with sales and promotions and he is so talented at this as many of you that attended the Sponsorship Seminar in January know.
We are really excited to announce that we have landed an awesome sponsor for our NASCAR Pinty’s Series Race on July 29th with Bayer Crop Science and the LUXXUR 300. We are hosting a major Media Release on May 17th at the Royal Executive Inn in Nisku who is also a new partner for us. If you need a hotel to stay at, simply contact them with the Code EIRRacing and you will get their best deal!
I am also excited to have the Truck Outfitters as the major sponsor of the NASCAR Super Trucks racing at EIR. They will be out at EIR on many occasions showcasing their product.

These will be excellent shows for the Fans; we have the NASCAR Super Trucks hosting a 100 lap race on July 8th with a Media/Charity Component and the Stuff a Truck campaign for the Wetaskiwin Food Bank, Whelen Night is on August 5 where we will also host the PWA Wrestling Event.
Encourage your friends to Like our Facebook to keep updated, I try to ensure we keep lots of interesting contact going to keep raising awareness for EIR.
We need all of our racers and their families to help get more fans into the seats. Ron is working really hard to get the second set of Grandstands finished so that we aren’t working on them so close to the Pinty’s Race in July. Our major projects for this year are getting electricity to the sea can Tower, finish the bleachers and siding on the Sea Can Corporate Suites. Please take a poster to display in your home town businesses, the more people that know about us the more we can make this a better place, make sure you tell everyone that the spectator admission is only $5 for all of May and Kids 6 years and under are free!
Because we don't get enough use out of the Pit Concession, I will not be opening it this year. The Main Concession will be open for you to order from. We will ensure we have enough staff on hand to handle your order quickly at intermission and if you wish to give us an order early we will have that ready for you for pick up!
I will be providing the Racers with a list of our Sponsors and encourage you to support these businesses that help support your sport! I would also ask that you provide me with a list of YOUR Sponsors so we can ensure we support them and encourage others to do so as well! Very Important!
Thank you again for being here and supporting EIR. We will work hard to make this the best way to spend your weekend!
