On December 15th, McColl Racing Enterprises opened the doors to it’s 11,450 square foot shop to drivers, teams and fans to come in and check out. Drivers and fans alike were able to enter the shop and tour it from one end to another, while enjoying some food and games. The result was over 300 people showing up for the event.
M.R.E has been building chassis for over 30 years, winning multiple races in both Late Models and the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. The move was made in April to the new shop and was meant to be able to expand the operation out more.
The Open House allowed M.R.E to showcase three new plans for the 2013 race season.
For starters, they will begin distributing U.S. Legends Cars and Parts, including a rental program. For $500, a helmet and a firesuit, you can get behind the wheel of one of the Legends at Grand Bend Speedway for a night. The series is a spec series in that all the cars are identical, with the exception of three styles of car available in seven body styles. The idea to promote exciting side-by-side racing while keeping costs low.
Secondly, for the first time in the company’s history, they have built an OSCAAR Super Late Model chassis with the announcement being made that 2011 Sunset Speedway Kevin Cornelius would be behind the wheel. Cornelius makes the move up to the OSCAAR ranks in 2013 after success in the Late Model division at Sunset Speedway.
