My Town: Berlin Raceway mascot makes his debut

MARNE, Mich.—The Berlin Raceway and Entertainment Complex has a new mascot.

“HORSEPOWER” plans to attend all of the races and events this year, as well as visit places throughout West Michigan this spring and summer.  HORSEPOWER made his debut last Saturday.  He’s one of the new additions to Berlin Raceway, along with new grandstands and 11 private suites, which are still under construction.  The suites will likely be finished in June.

Chris Danielson, announcer and vice president of sales and media says the upgrades are meant to make the venue more versatile, so it can welcome a variety of events, including the upcoming craft beer and summer music festivals.  Danielson says the goal is to use the site 150 days out of the year; he says the raceway is currently in use 25-30 days a year.
