The Estevan Motor Speedway's annual awards banquet on October 26 at the Days Inn will feature trophy presentations and a few other attractions.
Doors will open for cocktails at 5:30 p.m., and supper will be served an hour later.
Once supper is finished, driver awards will be handed out to the track champions, the top rookies and other award recipients in the modified, stock car and hobby stock classes.
New for this year will be the speedway's Wall of Fame inductions. A lot of people have made contributions to the track and to auto racing in Estevan, and the track's executive believes now is the time to honour them, according to speedway promotions and marketing manager Tracy Lewis-Miller.
“We are going to pay tribute to three or four families, and we'll do it every year at our banquet from now on, who contribute to dirt track racing in Estevan and the Estevan Motor Speedway,” said Lewis-Miller.
The families will be revealed the night of the banquet.
Some of the track's volunteers will also be honoured during the banquet. The speedway has about 55 to 60 volunteers who help with the execution of each event, Lewis-Miller said.
There will also be a hot stove panel discussion featuring two-time NASCAR Busch series champion and auto racing safety advocate Randy Lajoie, Arkansas-based modified racer and chassis maker Jeff Taylor, and Boone, Iowa promoter and track announcer Toby Kruse.
All three have been around auto racing their entire lives.
“I wanted to do something a little more interactive with the crowd,” said Lewis-Miller.
She said the three speakers will share stories, discuss grassroots racing and look at the impact that racing has on families, all in a relaxed setting.
A live auction will wrap up the evening. The featured items will be the track's VIP suites.
