The I Love Canadian Harness Racing Fan Club had lots of great contests for the 2018 National Driving Championship (NDC) at Grand River Raceway this past Wednesday (Sept 26) and there were a few lucky fans that took home great prizes!

Congratulations to Howard Mercer of Newfoundland, the winner of the NDC Online Handicapping Contest. Over 300 members entered the contest and Howard was the only person to finish with 14 out of a possible 20 points. Howard has won a $50 gift certificate to the Canadian harness racetrack of his choice and a Fan Club swag package.

Racing fans who came to out on NDC night were invited put their creative skills to use and make a sign to use to cheer on their favourite driver! There were a ton of very creative signs to cheer on the drivers, but in the end, it was Wendy Ryckman from ‘Team Henry’ who was selected as the winner and took home a $100 betting voucher!

Last but not least, the Fan Club organized a NDC photo contest. Fans were asked to take a photo of any of the NDC action and post it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #NDC18. The winning photo was submitted on Facebook by Dianne Gill of Kitchener, Ont. She has won a $50 gift certificate to Woodbine Mohawk Park and a Fan Club swag package.
