WSLS-10’s Jonathan Merryman is a couple days from running his first U-Car race at Franklin County Speedway. Merryman had a full day of practice this week in preparation for his big debut. The Rustburg native and shade-tree mechanic has always dreamed of racing…something. With the help of car owner/driver Eric Winslow of Danville he will get that chance on Sunday. Merryman’s times were competitive during his practice session at the track and he hopes to try to keep the fenders on the car and stay on the lead lap–modest goals–for his first time out. For those that are interesting in watching..the racing action begins at PM at Franklin County Speedway with Merryman’s debut likely to occur between 430 and PM on Sunday.
