Super Dirt Week
Napa Auto Parts Super Dirt Week – Oswego, NY
Quicksilver attended this year’s Napa Auto Parts Super Dirt week in Oswego NY, located on the shores of Lake Ontario.
The event encompasses many popular classes of dirt car racing with five days filled with two to three races a day and into the night, along with time trials and qualifiers in between. There where over 12 thousand people in attendance over the five days of racing along with over 300 race teams from the US, Canada, and from far away as Australia. Mr. Steve Howard of Kellogg Marine and myself greeted and spoke to many wonderful race fans over the five-day event.
We displayed on the Midway, a sampling of Quicksilver products, including but not limited to, Circle Track 383 & 357 engines, Plus Series Marine Engines, Powersports Lubricants, New Production Cast Iron Cylinder Heads from 2.5L to 8.9L, and Fully Dressed replacement Pro SX Powerheads.
For many Race Fans, Racers and Team Owners, this was the first time they had seen or heard of our extensive line of affordable Quicksilver legacy and support products.
Once the connection was made that Mercury Marine has been building and supplying performance products for over 65 years; The overall interest taken was fantastic, there was much positive feedback with regards to pricing and availability of legacy items no longer produced or supported by other manufacturers. We look forward to growing our relationships and product offerings for years to come.
As special Thanks to Mr. John Torrese, Owner of Oswego Speedway and Ms. Mega Hazel of Dirt Car for all their assistance in bringing this event together, and making us feel welcome.
