Séries NASCAR Pinty's

 

Alex Labbé et l'équipe Go Fas Racing d'attaque dans les prairies 

 

Montréal, le 22 juillet 2016 – L'équipe Go Fas Racing se retrouvera à Edmonton et Saskatoon lors de la tournée annuelle dans les prairies de la série NASCAR Pinty's, le 23 juillet à Edmonton et le 27 à Saskatoon. 

 

Dire que tous les membres de l'équipe ont le couteau entre les dents ne serait pas une exagération.

Le pilote de St-Albert croit fermement au potentiel de victoires pour la Ford no32 : « Notre voiture marche à merveille depuis le début de la saison et nous visons la victoire aux deux pistes. La concurrence est féroce, mais je crois fermement au potentiel gagnant de notre équipe, et j'ai bien hâte de me retrouver en piste ce weekend ! »

PASS And ACT Racers Ready For “Summer Showdown In The Mountains” At White Mountain

PASS And ACT Racers Ready For "Summer Showdown In The Mountains" At White Mountain

 

-      For Immediate Release

 

NAPLES, ME (July 21) – For only the second time this season, the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North Super Late Models and the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Models will compete together in Twin 150s as they headline the "Summer Showdown In The Mountains" at White Mountain Motorsports Park.  This weekend will also mark the first time PASS has competed at the tight, quarter-mile confines which are located in North Woodstock, NH since May, 2014.

            One driver who will be very busy this weekend will be homestate favorite Joey Polewarczyk.  Joey Pole, as he is known by his fans, will be seeking his first career PASS North Super Late Model win, while also fielding an entry for the ACT Late Model event for his development driver, Ryan Olsen.   

            "We felt pretty strong about our car at White Mountain before the PASS race that was rained out in June and we feel like we keep improving on our Super Late Model program," says Polewarczyk, driver of the Pole's Automotive #97.  "We are still searching for our first PASS win and White Mountain would be the perfect place.  It's small, fast, and very racy, so I think it will be very exciting."

            Last year, Polewarczyk attempted the PASS/ACT double as a driver at both Oxford Plains Speedway and Airborne International Speedway.  This weekend, while still focusing on both cars, Polewarczyk hopes he will be able to focus differently on both races, while only driving himself in the PASS 150 lapper.

            "I think it will be good because we can focus on Ryan [Olsen] with the ACT car and bounce ideas off each other about what the track's doing, even though it's two different types of cars," says Polewarcyzk.  "It will be a lot of work, but we are looking forward to it."  

A great field of PASS North Super Late Models is expected this weekend at White Mountain Motorsports Park.  PASS North points leader and 4-time White Mountain winner, DJ Shaw, will be joined by former champions and White Mountain winners, Mike and Ben Rowe, and Johnny Clark.  Former HP Hood Oxford 250 champions, Travis Benjamin and Glen Luce, will lead the Maine contingent, along with Tracy Gordon, Mike Hopkins, and Nick Jenkins.  Granite State drivers Bryan Kruczek, Joe Squeglia, Jr., and Jeremy Davis will be joined by Vermont's Todd Stone and Brent Dragon, Massachusetts' Derek Ramstrom and Greg Nanigan, and Dany Poulin, who will be making the tow from Quebec.

Action begins on Saturday at White Mountain Motorsports Park with practice from 1 to 4:30 PM for the PASS North Super Late Models, ACT Late Models, and White Mountain divisions, with racing starting at 5.

Entry forms for upcoming PASS events at White Mountain, Oxford Plains, Lee, and South Boston, along with entry forms and information on the 43rd Annual HP Hood Oxford 250 can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com.

 The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and Modifieds and boasts such marquee events as the legendary HP Hood Oxford 250 and PASS South's Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway.  For technical information concerning all PASS divisions please send questions to passracing@roadrunner.com.  For media or marketing questions, please contact Alan Dietz at 704-231-2039 or alandietzpass@live.com.  And, don't forget to "Like" the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter @PASSSLM14 to keep up with breaking news as it happens.

LANGIS CARON EN ACTION À MONTMAGNY CE WEEK-END

AVEC LES PILOTES DE LA SÉRIE VINTAGE

LANGIS CARON EN ACTION À MONTMAGNY CE WEEK-END

IL EST L'HOMME À BATTRE !

 

 


 

Mise à part la course interrompue par la pluie à 3 tours du début, le premier juillet dernier, le célêbre pilote septuagénaire d'origine beauceronne, Langis Caron, a remporté toutes les finales auxquelles il a pris part depuis le début de la saison avec la Nova 1970 #35 mis à sa disposition par la série Vintage Québec.

 

Absent pour des raisons familliales lors de la dernière course, à St-Félicien, celui qui l'a remplacé, le félécinois Karl Allard a tout balayé sur son passage avec cette même voiture en remportant les 2 finales de la soirée, ainsi que la qualification.

 

C'est donc avec le couteau entre les dents que les réguliers de la série,  Rocheleau, Verner et fils, Valliêres, Gervais, Goyette ainsi que le nouveau venu, Stéphane Décoste, avec la Firebird #68 de l'équipe Rocheleau et les autres s'amèneront à Montmagny ce samedi soir, le 23 juillet, pour essayer, de façon sportive et amicale,  de mettre un terme à la domination de ce vétéran,   qui  fait la pluie et le beau temps depuis plusieurs décennies sur les pistes québécoises et nord-américaines, ainsi que la fameuse Nova 1970 rouge et bleue portant le numéro 35.

 

 

 

 

Cette course, Initialement prévue pour être disputé à St-Eustache, les dirigeants de l'ASE ont dû, pour des raisons logistiques, hors de leur contrôle, annuler la venue de l'Association Vintage chez eux ce week-end.

 

Suite à un travail  de titan, le président de l'ASCVQ, Patrick Verner a dû entreprendre des démarches pour relocaliser cette course, et c'est l'organisation de l'Autodrome Montmagny qui a finalement accepté de recevoir les Vintages ce samedi. Les amateurs sont priés de prendre note de ce changement.

 

 

 

C'est à toute une course, où la tension sera palpable  que les amateurs de son et de «rod» devront s'attendre ce samedi à l'Autodrome Montmagny.

 

Egalement au programme, les pilotes de l'ACT seront en vedette avec une finale de 150 tours en deux segments de 75 tours. Les camionnettes Procam et les catégories locales seront également au rendez-vous.

Les "Side panels" sont de retour

Samedi 23 juillet

Les "Side panels" sont de retour

C'est le retour de l'action ce samedi 23 Juillet à l'Autodrome Drumond avec
la soirée "Side Panels Night" une présentation du garage Éric Bonin. Pour
une 2e fois cette année les bolides Modifiés et Modlite arboreront leurs
tôles volumineuses qui procure plus d'appuis et qui leur donnent un joli
look agressif.

Trois classes à l'honneur lors de cette soirée, les classes maison
Sportsman et Modifiés mais aussi les Modlite seront de retour. Et comme
c'est souvent le cas il y aura deux courses de 40 tours pour la catégorie
Modifiés.

Le dernier programme présenté remonte au 25 juin, car la pluie est venus
jouer les troubles fêtes le 9 juillet. Mario Clair s'était illustrée avec une
victoire. Mais le championnat est mené par nul autre que la recrue Mathieu
Desjardins, lui aussi victorieux lors du dernier programme, avec 502 pts,
suivi du "Rocket" Mario Clair avec 492 pts et le promoteur Yan Bussière
occupe le 3e rang avec 480 pts. La course au championnat est des plus
excitantes et ce n'est pas dans la poche pour Desjardins.

Les Sportsman aussi renoueront avec l'action et la dernière course
malheureusement écourté fut remporté par Dany Gagné qui retrouve la
plus haute marche du podium. Le surprenant Bryan Cloutier occupe le
premier rang du championnat avec 302 pts, mais suivi de très près par
Dany Gagné avec 297 pts et Félix Murray est 3e avec 266 pts. Notez que
pas très loin en 4e place l'ombre de Martin Pelletier plane avec 259 pts. Ne
faut jamais oublier Pelletier, qui peut sortir un lapin de son chapeau en tout
temps.

Les Modlite, sont de retour et ils offrent toujours un excellent spectacle
avec de nombreux dépassements, et plusieurs pilotes peuvent prétendre à
la victoire. Lors de leur dernière présence Michael Dion, qui en était à une
première visite en piste à Drummondville s'était illustré avec une victoire.
Ce dernier occupe le 7e rang au championnat. Kevin Burke domine avec
277 pts et pas très loin derrière avec 268 pts Benjamin Cartier le talonne
suivi d'Éric Désilets avec 263 pts.

La doyenne des pistes en action au Canada saura vous en mettre plein la
vue. L'Autodrome Drummond "La F1 de la terre battue ».

Rob Warnes Scores OMRS Checkered Flag at Flamboro



Rob Warnes Scores OMRS Checkered Flag at Flamboro Speedway

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media

 

In many ways, it was just another event on the Ontario Modifieds Racing Series – powered by Torque Builders Inc. – schedule; but at the same time, every driver in the starting field – Saturday, July 16th – at Flamboro Speedway was wondering if they'd be the lucky one to bring an end to John Baker Jr's early season win streak.

 

An even dozen of the popular open wheeled machines signed-in for their second of this year's events at the venerable speed plant near Hamilton, Ontario. With just a single qualifying heat to secure their main event starting spot, teams were looking for every possible advantage as the night's action took to the track. Former Peterborough Speedway 4Fun track champion Willow Barberstock and Rick Warnes paced the field to the green flag, with the young season's hottest driver John Baker Jr. coming to the line from 9th on the starting grid.

 

While it would be easy for the other drivers in field to track the performance of the bright orange machine wheeled by the current point leader and 4-time feature winner, smart racers know that its always best to focus on what's happening in front of you, instead of the rear-view mirror. That was the exact strategy Rob Warnes used to take his first victory of the season.

 

"I knew the #63 had started behind me on the initial green flag, so unless I saw him alongside, the plan was to run my own race," said the 2014 OMRS title holder. "It was an exciting show for the fans and that's the goal anytime we take to the track. Hopefully, it'll be the shot in the arm we're looking for to turn our season around."

 

Baker made it to the runner-up spot at the checkered flag, with Ryan Babin, Duane Cinnamon and Chris Burrows rounding-out the top 5. Ryan Dick, Alex Lees, Brad Stevenson, Randy Hollingsworth, Willow Barberstock, Stu Robinson Jr. and Rick Warnes completed the finishing order. The Ontario Modifieds Racing Series starts a stretch of 4 races in 7 weeks at Peterborough Speedway – beginning Saturday, July 23rd – and continuing August 6th, 13thand 27th.

New And Familiar Faces Return As SMRS Modifieds Make Inaugural Visit To Tri-County

New And Familiar Faces Return As SMRS Modifieds Make Inaugural Visit To Tri-County

 

-       For Immediate Release

 







CHARLOTTE, NC (July 20) – The Tour-type Modifieds of the Southern Modified Racing Series (SMRS) Presented By PASS return to action this Friday night for "Foothills Night At The Races" at Tri-County Motor Speedway.  The series first trip to the multi-groove .416-mile facility will see several familiar faces returning, while the addition of the Mod Lite division will expand the competition throughout the remainder of the 2016 season.  The Mod Lite cars, piloted by drivers like Winston-Salem, NC's Scott Hall, will help grow the starting fields and will see the winner recognized in Victory Lane ceremonies and also receive recognition for the fastest qualifying lap in their respective division.

"I'm excited to get back to racing in the Modified and with PASS and the Southern Modified Racing Series," says Hall.  "Adding the Mod Lites division gives us a stepping stone to the Tour-Type Modifieds.  I have heard great things about the series and am looking forward to our debut on Friday night at Tri-County."

A familiar face that will be making his return to the SMRS Tour this weekend at Tri-County Motor Speedway will be Bobby Measmer, Jr.  Measmer returns following a popular and hard fought win at his hometown track, the Concord Speedway, which saw him take the checkered flag over Burt Myers and Ryan Preece.

"To be able to win at Concord was awesome, it was my first Modified win, plus getting to do it in front of my family and friends, made it that much more special," says Measmer.  "Another thing that win has done is, not only let me, but our team know we can win and be a competitor week in and week out."

Now, still celebrating that Concord win and with local sponsor Crispy's Bar and Grill coming on board, Measmer and the Hughes Motorsports team return to the SMRS feeling confident that they can join John Smith and Jon McKennedy as a two-time winner this season with the series.

            "Our expectations going into this Friday night's race at Tri-County is actually a little different," says Measmer.  "We didn't plan at the beginning of the season to run this race, but with the awesome job that SMRS has done so far this year, we're going to run this race and test a few things hoping to learn something new and still at the same time compete for the win."

In addition to Hall and Measmer, SMRS points leader John Smith, Burt and Jason Myers, and Brandon Ward are all expected, along with Andy Jankowiak, Mike Norman, and more.

The Southern Modified Racing Series Presented By PASS, along with Mid-Atlantic Limited Late Models and Street Stocks, will hit the track this Friday night at Tri-County Motor Speedway, with practice starting at 4 PM, grandstands will open at 6 PM, qualifying at 7 PM, the on track Pit Party at 7:30 PM, and racing starting at 8 PM

The NASCAR Foundation Board of Directors Adds Two Members

The NASCAR Foundation Board of Directors Adds Two Members

Brown & Brown Insurance's Katie Palmer, Sunoco's Cynthia Archer Join Board 

DAYTONA BEACH, FLA. (July 19, 2016) – The NASCAR Foundation today announced two key additions to its board of directors, further strengthening the organization's leadership and its relationships with business communities on both local and national levels.

Katie Palmer, Florida Personal Lines Leader with Daytona Beach-based Brown & Brown Insurance, and Sunoco LP Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Cynthia Archer will join the board that is led by Chairwoman Emeritus Betty Jane France and Chairman Mike Helton.

The NASCAR Foundation is NASCAR's charitable arm that works to improve the lives of children in need. It was founded in 2006 by France.

Brown & Brown was founded in Daytona Beach in 1939. The growth of its business model from regional to national scope coincided with that of NASCAR, which started in Daytona Beach in 1947. Sunoco has been the Official Fuel of NASCAR since 2004 and since then, has almost doubled the size of its retail network.

"The NASCAR Foundation is fortunate to now include two new board members who are leaders in their industries," Helton said. "Their successes in each of their organizations represents the leadership that the Foundation is working to achieve as it stays true to its home community of Daytona Beach, while continuing to grow its role and impact all across America."

Palmer, who has been with Brown & Brown since 2012, said she is "extremely honored to join The NASCAR Foundation and to be a part of an organization that is filled with such a passion and dedication for helping today's youth live happier, healthier lives. Thousands of children have received much needed medical treatment and compassionate care through the support of The Foundation and, as an expecting mother, it gives me joy to know I have a hand in continuing the enrichment of children's lives."

Archer is a longtime Sunoco executive who was deeply involved with Sunoco's entrance into the sport in 2004 and with the growth in Sunoco's partnership with NASCAR since then. She has held her current positions since April 2015.

"Sunoco joined the NASCAR family in 2004 and over the last 12 years many of us at Sunoco have come to know so many members of that family and built wonderful relationships that are both professional and personal," Archer said. "Generosity is a hallmark of the NASCAR community, and everyone at Sunoco has been very proud to be part of that.  I am honored to join The NASCAR Foundation board and excited to have a chance to experience first-hand the important contributions being made to improve the lives of children."

About The NASCAR Foundation

The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing Inc. (NASCAR) established The NASCAR Foundation in January 2006 to support initiatives that positively affect the lives of children throughout the United States. The 501(c) (3) non-profit entity partners with medical experts and other charitable organizations to fund children's health care programs. Now celebrating 10 Years of Giving in 2016, The NASCAR Foundation has cumulatively donated $25 million to reach more than one million children.

Devil's Bowl Speedway Announces Summer Schedule Changes

Three dates added, several adjustments made for both asphalt and dirt surfaces

WEST HAVEN, Vt. – Vermont's Devil's Bowl Speedway has announced a list of changes to its NASCAR Whelen All-American Series stock car racing schedule for the second half of the 50th season.  Three race dates have been added to the calendar at the Rutland County facility and several other adjustments have been made on existing dates, with many of the changes created to make up for cancellations due to rain earlier in the season.

The double-points Mid-Season Championships have been rescheduled for both the half-mile Asphalt Track and the 3/10-mile Dirt Track at Devil's Bowl.  The Asphalt Track will hold its Mid-Season event this Saturday, July 23 at a new start time of 7:00 p.m., presented by Friend Construction of Bristol, Vt.  With the Dirt Track off this week, the Mid-Season Championships will be held on Sunday, July 31 at 6:00 p.m.

The first added race date will be on the Dirt Track on Sunday, August 7 at 6:00 p.m., with double features on tap for the Central Vermont Motorcycles Sportsman Modified, Rosen & Berger Auto Recyclers Renegade, and Portland Glass Mini Stock divisions.  The Dirt Track will also add a date on Sunday, August 21 at 6:00 p.m., and the Sportsman Modifieds will run a special 38-lap "Tribute Series" race in the rescheduled "Vince Quenneville Sr. Memorial" event presented by Interstate All Battery Center of Rutland.

The Asphalt Track will add an event on Labor Day weekend, Saturday, September 3 at 7:00 p.m., with a four-division card presented by The Rutland Herald including the Bond Auto Parts Sportsman Modifieds, Central Vermont Motorcycles Late Models, Rosen & Berger Auto Recyclers Renegades, and Portland Glass Mini Stocks.

The addition of the new race dates means that Devil's Bowl Speedway will now have racing on both Saturdays and Sundays for a seven-week stretch from July 30-31 through the Vermont 200 Asphalt Championship Weekend on September 10-11.

Other changes include the addition of Sportsman Twin 25s on the Asphalt on both July 30 and August 13, and the annual three-segment Asphalt Mini Stock special event – originally planned for this week – has been moved to August 20.  The "Tribute Series" 50-lap Sportsman race honoring inaugural Devil's Bowl champion Mert "Socks" Hulbert has been rescheduled for the Dirt Track on Sunday, September 18, after being rained out in May.

Finally, fireworks shows have been added at three events, the first being at the fifth annual Carrara Masonry & Concrete "C.J. Richards Memorial 67" Sportsman event on the Asphalt on August.  Both tracks will have fireworks on Labor Day weekend, September 3-4.
