Raceway launches announcer contest

Grand River Raceway has launched a con­test to showcase aspiring race announcers.

The contest started May 30.

Audition race calls will be accepted until June 20. The top six entries will be posted at www.GrandRiverRaceway.­com beginning June 25. Online voting will determine the three semifinalists, who will vie for the top spot with a live race call on July 18. Grand River Race­way patrons will determine the winner by secret ballot.

The champion is awarded $250 for calling a race during the raceway’s Industry Day – the marquee event of the season, featuring the $300,000 Battle of Water­loo. The winner and three friends are also treated to lunch in the Captain’s Quarters dining room.
