New Naming Sponsor – Sutherland Automotive (Speedway)
The SSCRA Executive is pleased to announce that SUTHERLAND AUTOMOTIVE will be the naming partner of the member-owned racetrack from 2022 to the end of the 2026 race season, replacing the previous six-year agreement that carried the Wyant Group Raceway title.
Located just 2 km north of Saskatoon off Hwy #12, the Speedway is home to national and international motorsport racing featuring several regular classes that include Super Late Models, Sportsman, Street and Mini Stocks, Legends, Pro Trucks, Bandoleros as well as periodic visits from other traveling racing classes. The Sutherland Automotive Speedway is once again scheduled to host the NASCAR Pinty’s Series in 2022 with further details released in the spring.
Andrew Clewes, President of the SSCRA, states “Our relationship with the Wyant Group over the past six years was nothing short of exceptional. We are extremely pleased and excited to build on this new partnership over the next five years with the well-respected and successful Sutherland Automotive organization.”
Eric and Teresa Knogler, owners of Sutherland Automotive with operations in Saskatoon, Prince Albert, North Battleford and Moose Jaw, serve a wide swath within the automotive parts sector.
Eric Knogler exclaimed “We are thrilled to be joining forces with the Saskatoon Stock Car Association at the Sutherland Automotive Speedway. We hope to see everyone out for some tire squealing, seat gripping, adrenaline fueled action this 2022 season. It looks to be an exciting lineup this year and we would like to wish all competitors the best of luck. So come on out to Sutherland Automotive Speedway and catch the rip roaring, racing action!”
