New board elected at speedway annual meeting; Aaron Turnbull the new president

The Estevan Motor Speedway held its annual general meeting Tuesday night at the Days Inn Estevan. The 2020 financials were reviewed, and a new board of directors was elected.

Aaron Turnbull will be the new president. His father, Ed, was one of the first presidents of the track in the early 2000s.

Brad Pierson is the vice-president, Lynn Trobert is the treasurer and Jeremy Istace is the secretary.

Other board members are Danny Blackburn, Chris Hortness and Eric De Ruyck.

The speedway thanks their outgoing president Byron Fichter for his many years of service along with outgoing directors Jeremy Swanson, Blake Penna and Gregg Mann.

The Estevan Motor Speedway is looking forward moving to the 2021 season, although they know there will still be many challenges for the upcoming season.

EMS is always looking for volunteers who would like to help out.

“There seems to be a misconception with volunteering at EMS that you can’t volunteer and still enjoy the races,” the speedway said in a news release. “There are many little jobs that can be done behind the scenes that allow you to enjoy the races like you’ve always done.”

Next week's edition of the Mercury will have more on this story.
