ST. CATHARINES, ON – 2015 ended strong for Bicknell Racing Products with a World Finals Sweep among 734 Feature Wins leading to 51 Track and 13 Series Championships. Drivers and Race Teams looking to be strong in 2016 can take the first step at the annual Open House Saturday January 16th at BRP’s Canadian Retail and manufacturing headquarters in St. Catharines, Ontario starting at 9 AM.
“At BRP – customer service is a priority,” relays Bicknell Racing Products’ Bob Slack, “whether it’s during the off season at our Open House or at a Trade Show … week in and week out during the summer or at a Series or Special Event – it’s important to us to help our Teams anyway we can.”
FREE Seminars throughout the day begin at 9:30 with an Information Session on the new Wegner Motorsports W16 358 Modified Motor that will be eligible in the division in 2016 hosted by BRP Partners Pete Bicknell and Bob Slack.
Slack’s father Randy fielded a 358 at Thorold Ontario’s Merrittville Speedway for Watertown NY’s Billy Dunn powered by the economical Wegner Motorsports W16 engine as an experiment.
“The W16 provides a reasonably priced option for drivers and teams that desire to advance to the 358 Modified Division,” added Slack, “the proven reliability of the W16 Engine and the reasonable rebuilds make it a good choice for the racer on a budget.”

BRP has won more than 8,000 checkered flags and we are proud of each one!”
“The timing is just right,” said BRP’s Randy Williamson, “whatever your division – the day helps us all get back up to speed from the Holidays … our Open House is a great day to catch up with our friends and get back into race mode.”
Team BRP Drivers continue to win more features than any other Chassis Manufacturer in Big Block Modified … 358 Modified and Sportsman Divisions in DIRTcar … RoC and everything in between.
