Thorold, Ontario – Last January, Quick Ink Custom Screen Printing owned by Shayne Pierce, Chris and Sami Steele began after months of planning. Just ahead of celebrating their first full year of operation the three will celebrate their beginnings in Kart Racing as the new Junior 2 Divisional Sponsor at Merrittville Speedway.
“Sponsoring the Junior 2 division is just our way of trying to help develop the young talent and future competitors,” said Co-owner Shayne Pierce on behalf of his sister and brother-in-law, “I grew up racing Tuesday Nights as did Chris and recently my sister too. Tuesdays were our Saturday Nights … we’re excited to help develop the future stars.”
Race Fans and Teams may have first been introduced to the St. Catharines Ontario company leading up to last year’s 2nd Annual Brian Stevens Memorial presented by Zavitz Financial Strategies and ZFS Employee Benefits as they provided a special event T Shirt honoring the former Champion and L. St. Amand Enterprises Wall of Famer.
Looking to give back to the sport … proceeds of the T Shirt Sales went to 358 Modified Quick Time Awards. $200 Cash Awards went to the fastest in each qualifying group. Local drivers fittingly took home the awards – Ryan Susice, Erick Rudolph and Tim Jones.
“In a relatively quick time … Quick Ink has established itself as the place to go for screen printing,” said new Merrittville owners Don and Lorraine Spiece, “it’s nice to see them support our Karting program … once the word went out – they were quick to join in.”
