Lumbermart New Title Sponsor for Thunder & Lightning

(Halifax, NS. April 27, 2011) Scotia Speedworld is proud to announce Lumbermart as the new Thunder and Lightning division sponsor. Thunder and Lightning cars are four-cylinder streetcars with safety modifications. The Thunder division features Hondas and Volkswagens, the remaining brands compete in the Lightning division. These popular entry-level classes have grown tremendously since their inception in 2003. Both divisions run as part of Scotia Speedworld’s Weekly Racing Series. In business now for over 27 years, Lumbermart remains under the original O'Hearn Family ownership. In addition to their "Sharpest Pencil in Town" prices they have become famous for, Lumbermart recently launched their Lumbermart Project Centres. Since 1984 Lumbermart has been your locally owned Home Improvement Outlet. This means Lumbermart is now your complete one stop shop for all your home improvement needs. Included in this mix is a very busy "Installed Sales Component" whereby Lumbermart not only supplies the material, they'll now have it professionally installed as well…. all at their "Real Deal" prices!

“We are very excited about the opportunity to reach all the Scotia Speedworld fans, drivers and crew members this season” Said Fred O’Hearn, President of Lumbermart. “ ”We have paid special attention to products and services we think race fans could use and we [Lumbermart] will be offering special deals for Scotia Speedworld patrons all summer long!” Said Jason O’Hearn, General Manager of Lumbermart.
