(Halifax, NS – June 23, 2011) There will be celebrities in the house this week at Scotia Speedworld! In addition to Weekly Racing Series action, some of your favorite media personalities will also be going head to head on the track in the second annual Media Race. That’s right, Metro’s media moguls will be let loose on the track for 12 laps in 4-cylinder Thunder and Lightning cars! Don’t miss JC Douglas, Denyse Sibley, Caroline Parker, Ron Kronstein and more as they pilot the cars for bragging rights, the coveted Media Race trophy and most importantly a cheque for his or her local charity of choice!
