ST. CATHARINES, ON — official release — An annual highlight of the Bicknell Racing Products (BRP) CanAm Tour is the Brock Young Memorial. John Charlesworth, President of the Cattaraugus County Agricultural Society and Little Valley Speedway promoter, has scheduled the 12th annual running of this event for Thursday July 3

The Brock Young Memorial event was first run in 2003 to honor the life of Brock Young a BRP CanAm driver who died in a 2002 highway accident. Since then the event has taken on added importance as it honors Roxie Young, Brock’s mother, who died of cancer in 2009. Brock’s father, Dick, brothers AJ and Kyle, and sister Kari all work to carry on this memorial event.

For the race teams the event has special meaning for those that know the Young family. There is a long history of racing there that started with Dick racing at Woodhull and Circle K often as a team mate with Monroe Puffer. That tradition was carried on by Brock in his #22 and AJ in his #33. The significance of the $1422 paid to the winner of the Brock Young Memorial is – One For Twenty Two (Brock’s race car number).

Eight drivers have earned a Brock Young Memorial trophy and the $1422 check from the eleven events completed to-date. The defending race champion is Bruce Miller who has won the event for the past three years. Other winners of Brock’s race include Bryce Davis (2010), Steve Dixon (2009), Darren Kish (2005), Larry Knowles (2007), Rich Michael, Jr (2006), Todd Rice (2003), and Jeremy Wonderling (2004 and 2008).

Little Valley Speedway gates will open at 4:00 on Thursday July 3 for race action at 7:00. Details at www.LittleValleySpeedway.com
