DRESDEN RACEWAY READY TO OPEN DOORS FOR ANOTHER SEASON

(DRESDEN) May 19, 2019 –  For over 150 years people have been coming to Dresden and this Sunday racing will continue at the Southwestern Ontario half mile track.

As part of Opening Day festivities Dresden Raceway will be offering free t-shirts to the first 100 patrons through the turnstiles and will also feature a match race between MPP Monte McNaughton and Mayor Darrin Canniff.

“Opening Day is always a big day at Dresden Raceway with fans excited to be back for another year,” said track announcer, Gary Patterson.

Sunday will kick off an 11 day season that ends Civic Holiday Monday that will feature action packed racing as well as many contests for fans that will include prizes from Tim Horton’s Dresden, McDonald’s Wallaceburg, Harvey’s Wallaceburg, Dresden Subway, Shopper’s Drug Mart Wallaceburg, The Track Kitchen and Mario’s Pizza Plus in Dresden.

“It’s such an exciting time of year. The grandstand is in great shape with a new roof and the horsemen are stoked get back to the Sunday afternoon tradition.” Patterson added.

“We have a great driver’s colony that come to Dresden every year with guys like Tyler Borth, Garret Rooney and Nick Steward as well as some veterans like Mark Williams and Donnie Rankin.” Patterson added.

Gateway Casino’s slots are still operation as they haven’t moved to Chatham which means that patrons will have more ways to win with full slots facilities at Dresden Raceway.

Post Time is set for 1:30pm.
