Oh, Canada: NASCAR reveals 2017 Pinty’s Series schedule


NASCAR’s Home Tracks division has announced the schedule for the 2017 NASCAR Pinty’s Series in Canada.

It will be the second season with Pinty’s as entitlement sponsor for the series.

The 13-race series will be contested over a four-month period, starting with the season-opening race on May 21 at Canada’s Victoria Day weekend on the road course at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ont.

The suburban Toronto track will also host the series on Sept. 3 as part of a weekend that features a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race there.

The Pinty’s Series will also serve as an undercard for the Toronto Honda Indy Exhibition Place street course race along Toronto’s Lake Ontario waterfront on July 15.

“From Cayden Lapcevich’s (the former youngest champion in NASCAR history at 16 years old) memorable championship campaign, to the thrilling battles between Quebec’s favorites Andrew Ranger, Alex Tagliani, Kevin Lacroix and Alex Labbe, the 2016 NASCAR Pinty’s Series was one for the record books,” George Silbermann, NASCAR vice president of weekly & touring series, said in a media release. “With the newly released schedule, the 2017 season is shaping to take that excitement to the next level. The mix of world-class road courses and challenging ovals will provide a great test for drivers and teams, and excite fans across Canada.”

The series’ annual West Coast swing will have a new look, visiting Wyant Group Raceway in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan for a pair of races on July 25, which will mark the halfway part of the season, followed by a race July 29 at Edmonton International Raceway in Alberta.

In another unique twist, the seventh annual visit to the Circuit ICAR roadcourse on Montreal’s Mirabel International Airport will be contested under the lights on July 8.

The series also returns to Delaware Speedway in Ontario.

The season ends Sept. 16 at Kawartha Speedway in Fraserville, Ontario, which will mark the 11th consecutive year the track has hosted the season finale.
