The countdown is officially on! It is only weeks away until our first race of the 2012 season at Sunset Speedway. The entire Cronan Motorsports team has been hard at work all winter preparing for another successful season both on and off the race track. We are all mentally and physically ready for the demanding and exciting time that is just upon us. We are finishing up the last minute touches to our Late Model Chevrolet Impala and are ready to have her on the track this week for the first time since her electric finish last year with a championship/win! She has been patiently sitting in the garage all winter long and is ready to show the world what she’s got for this year.

Cronan Motorsports has many goals for the 2012 season. Last year we proved not only to our fans and critics alike, but more importantly to ourselves that we are ready to contend for a championship at Sunset Speedway. This season we are ready to give it our all while racing on the track and preparing off of it to make this happen.

2012 is going to be as challenging and rewarding for us off the track as it is on. We have created a new challenge that we will need everyone’s help to achieve, but have no doubt that we can surpass it. We have generated the Cronan Motorsports $5000 Seasons Centre Challenge (100% of the proceeds go towards this cause). We are aiming with numerous events and private donations throughout 2012 to raise over five thousand dollars for the Seasons Centre for Grieving Children, a centre located in Barrie Ontario that supports children who have lost a parent or sibling and allows them to grieve in a trusting caring environment.

We are already on our way to our goal by raising $473 at our Daytona 500 Party hosted by our sponsors the Lockeroom Sports Bar and Grill and Supercuts Barrie/Wasaga in February. We will be having numerous shows and appearances throughout the year where we will be raising money for the challenge.

Saturday June 16th 2012 we will be partnering up with Supercuts Barrie/Wasaga and Rock 95 live on location at Supercuts on Mapleton Ave for Mitch Day. There will be haircuts and face painting and more to come! Check it out from 9am– 1pm. Proceeds supporting the Cronan Motorports Challenge. 

Then on Saturday July 7th, 2012 come by Bayfield Mall to check our show car part of Southern Cruisers Show and Shine.

Saturday July 14th 2012 is sure to be another amazing night as Cronan Motorsports and Sunset Speedway host our 2nd annual Seasons Centre Night at Sunset. We will be inviting the children and their families from the centre to the track. They will have a chance to meet and receive autographs from Sunset’s top drivers, sign our show car again (you can check out the signatures from the kids from last year’s event at the Lockeroom Sports Bar and Grill), and if we’re lucky hand out the trophies to the winning drivers. The centre and their generous volunteers will be in attendance selling 50/50 tickets and answering questions about the worthy cause.

Our main event to raise money for our Cronan Motorsports $5000 Seasons Centre Challenge will take place on Sunday July 29th, 2012 in the form of our 3rd Annual Cronan Motorsports Charity Golf Tournament. This will take place this year at Horseshoe Resort, minutes from Barrie. Tickets for this event are $100 which includes 18 holes of golf in a best ball shotgun start format, valet cart, a sit down dinner and a chance at great and exciting prizes. There will be competitions, raffles and much much more! Last year we had an amazing turn out and raised over $1000. This year we want to blow that number out of the water. Join as a single or as a foursome for a great afternoon of fun, laughs, great golf and most importantly a great cause.

Once again this year we have the opportunity for your company, your family or yourself to sponsor a hole. We have 24 spaces available including closest to the pin and longest drive. For $300 you will receive a free ticket to the golf tournament, as well as ample exposure for your company at the tournament, on the course and on our website. Please contact Kelly Stewart at 705-331-3479 or for more information on tickets and/or sponsorship.

These are just a few of the shows we have in the works. We will be partnering up with our sponsor RentalCityfor shows this season (more information to follow).  There will be more information to come as dates and shows are confirmed, but please check out for complete updates, schedules, news and results.
