Sommerville Glad to be Back Home for Auto Value 250 Weekend; Days Inn-Oromocto Continues Support in 2011.

Saint John, NB, Canada --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 8/29/11

The 2011 season has brought a new chapter to Lonnie Sommerville’s racing career as he is campaigning full time in the PASS North series for the Maine based Mulkern Racing team piloting their #48 Chevy Impala throughout New England. The duo has meshed well in Sommerville’s rookie season as together they have notch seven top fives and one win in ten series starts and currently sit third in the championship points standings. However, this weekend Sommerville will get back to racing his own #23 A.E. McKay Builders/Days Inn-Oromocto machine fans at his home track of Speedway 660 in Geary, NB have grown to love over the years for the 2011 Auto Value 250.

The Saint John, NB wheelman will look to become the first ever driver to win the Auto Value 250 on three different occasions after having won the event in 2006 and again in 2009. In addition to the pro stock race Sunday night Sommerville will pilot his father’s, Bill “The Bullet” Sommerville, #27 Pub’s Bottle Exchange/Sommerville Flooring sportsman car Saturday night in hopes of becoming the only driver to win both Speedway 660 Speedweekend events in the same year.

“I think I’ve got a real good chance to win both races actually. I couldn’t describe sweeping the weekend. If we happen to do that this weekend that would probably top my other two pro stock Speedweekend wins combine,” said an excited Sommerville. “Racing with the PASS North guys all season has really taught me so much as a driver especially how to win these longer races. My crew chief Gary Crooks will be with me just as he has all season and he’ll be helping get both the pro stock and the sportsman car tuned in to where we need it to be to win,”

“My dad has already won in his new car this year at Shediac so we know the car is capable of winning races. Part of our deal when I built this car for him was that I get to race it come Speedweekend, but now that he’s won in it already this season he sure isn’t shy about putting the pressure on me to win this weekend,” added the younger Sommerville.

Just as they did a season ago Days Inn-Oromocto, NB will join the Lonnie Sommerville Racing team as a Auto Value 250 weekend marketing partner. The Days Inn-Oromocto, NB logo will not only adorn both Sommerville piloted machines, but as part of their partnership fans and competitors alike who mention “Lonnie Sommerville Racing” or “Auto Value Speedweekend 2011” will receive a special rate of $99.00 per night based on single occupancy and just $10.00 for each additional adult.

“Its great having Troy and folks from Day Inn in Oromocto back on board with us this year. As a racer who travels and stays in a lot of hotels over the season you want a place that’s close to the racetrack, the rooms are clean, and a staff that’s easy to deal with and that’s exactly what they (Days Inn-Oromocto) are,” stated Sommerville. “In addition to all that they are willing to discount rates for the racing community which goes a long way when you’re trying to save money. Hopefully we can give them a good showing in both the sportsman and pro stock races this year.”

To book your room at the Days Inn-Oromocto, which features amenities such as free wireless internet, on-site bar, and an indoor pool, call 506-357-5657 and ask for the “Lonnie Sommerville Racing” or Speedweekend 2011” rate of just $99.00 per night.
