Tim’s Corner Motorsports is excited to announce the continuation of a partnership with EIT Race Radios to present the EIT Race Radios Hometown Hero Award. This is the third year of the award after the creation of the program at the beginning of the 2015 season.

EIT Race Radios was established in May 2002 as a supplier of radio communication equipment for motor sports race teams and fans. EIT Race Radios attends race events across the Maritimes every weekend and provides communication assistance and equipment to race teams and track staff as well as radio scanners and headphones for sale or rent to race fans. For a complete product and price list, along with a schedule of events that EIT Race Radios and Brent Rowley will be attending, please visit

The EIT Race Radios Hometown Hero Award is designed to shine the spotlight on a driver that concentrates on competing at and is loyal to one track throughout the season. While a majority of teams in the region will test the waters at other race tracks in the region, some do not have the resources to do so, whether it be a cost, time or other restraint. The award winner will receive a TCM Best of Racing Award Banner and product from EIT Race Radios.

The EIT Race Radios Hometown Hero Award basic nominee criteria is as follows:

  • Driver must compete in 75% of their home track’s events.
  • Driver must have only competed at one track in the 2017 season. Drivers that visit other tracks throughout the year are ineligible for this award.
  • This recipient selected also supports their home track through promotion, whether it is through car displays, social media campaigns or word of mouth, as examples.

The last two winners of the EIT Race Radios Hometown Hero Award have come from Speedway 660. Richard Atkinson of Geary, New Brunswick and Ryan Messer of Harvey, New Brunswick have taken home the prestigious award over the last two seasons. Both drivers have shown not only support to their home track as full time competitors but also show their race cars at various businesses and events around their community to built interest for the sport in their back yard.

Fans can nominate drivers and teams for the award by contacting Tim’s Corner Motorsports via their Facebook page (@TimsCorner), on Twitter (@TweetTimsCorner) or by email.

The TCM Best of Racing Awards recognizes drivers and tracks throughout Atlantic Canada in many different categories, including the TCM Most Popular Driver, Kings County Performance Rookie of the Year, TCM Breakout Performer of the Year and Finish Line Vinyl Design Best Looking Car Awards, just to name a few.
