Doug McNair Day at Hanover Raceway on Saturday, July 29 was a fun-filled afternoon!

Hanover's successful event recognized one of the nation's top drivers, Doug McNair, and did so on behalf of Saugeen Hospice, a local non-profit organization.

Smiles, autographs and candid conversations made an afternoon meet and greet with McNair a memorable experience for both driver and his racing fans.

Fans were also able to sign well wishes to McNair as Canada’s representative for the 2023 World Driving Championship.
