Exclamation Merritville Speedway

Would anyone know the frequency(s) the speedway uses (race control, rescue/tow-trucks) at the race track in Thorold Ont? I know the drivers are using a one-way "racecever" that uses 454.000. I am looking for track operation frequencies. Thanks in advance.......

I would do a band search between 450-457 Mhz that's typically the area that your gonna here race comm's unless there's other systems in place.

Yup, was going to say - it is the same frequency as the Gasport Speedway at the eastern end of Port Colborne, which is what you posted above.

It is used as an LPI (Low Power Itinerant) frequency in Canada and in the United States is a "Red Dot" frequency - so you'll find a LOT of users on it.
