Le moins qu’on puisse dire, c’est que MARIO CARRIER, de Ville Lorraine, le pilote de la voiture #61 n’a pas chômé cet hiver et, c’est avec un bolide complètement refait qu’il se présentera pour la première course de la COUPE MASTER SPORTSMAN QUÉBEC/USA à Plattsburgh NY le 12 mai prochain, avant de se présenter pour la première de la saison pour le championnat local ANCA à l’Autodrome St-Eustache la semaine suivante, le 19 mai pour l’ouverture officielle la sa piste locale en terre québécoise.


On sait que la saison de l’équipe #61 a pris fin de façon abrupte l’automne dernier alors la voiture de Carrier a violemment percuté le mur de la sortie de la courbe #1, la rendant inutilisable. L’hiver s’annonçait long pour Mario Carrier et son fidèle équipier de toujours, Éric Paquin. La décision a été vite prise: On ne se laisse pas abattre et on retourne aux courses en 2012.


Après avoir étudié les disponibilités, le choix de Mario fût d’acheter une voiture de Jocelyn Gagnon, ce dernier étant en train de se condtruite un bolide neuf pour 2012,  Cette ancienne voiture 31 de Steve Ladouceur, une voiture munie d’un Châssis Morin performance, contrairement au bolide précédent qui roulait avec un ancien châssis métrique, avait besoin d’un peu d’amour et de préparation, mais l’occasion était bonne.


C’est donc dans son garage de Lorraine que  Mario et son comparse ont passé une partie de leur hiver. Leurs travaux ont porté fruits, tant et si bien que le bolide est prêt à revecoir sa nouvelle carrosserie qui est en cours d’installation.


C’est donc avec enthousiasme que l’équipe #61 voit venir la saison 2012, et ce n’est pas en spectateur, comme aux derniers programmes de 2011 que Mario Carrier débutera cette saison tant attendu, mais à bord d’un bolide complètement refait. Nouvelles couleurs ?? On verra ça au printemps !!


Tous ses fans, ses amis et sa famille sont derrière lui pour l’encourager et le stimuler. Nous aussi, on lui souhaite la meilleure des saisons et que son dûr labeur soit courronné de succès.

ARCA's Alabama History Stretches Beyond Talladega


For Immediate Release:

Thursday, February 23, 2012


Stories of ARCA's 60th Anniversary Season:

ARCA's Alabama History Stretches Beyond Talladega


Note: With the Automobile Racing Club of America celebrating its 60th season in 2012, ARCA will look back throughout the season on the racing body's most notable and historical moments, chronicling the best stories of every era from ARCA's dawn in 1953 to today.


As the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards travels from last weekend's opener at Daytona to Mobile International Speedway - a place where the series has never raced - a fitting storyline is ARCA's history in Alabama, a state rich with racing tradition.


(TOLEDO, Ohio) - Alabama is known in racing circles for many of the famous names who called the state home. One of NASCAR's first families, the Flocks, hailed from Fort Payne; Tim, the youngest Flock, won two NASCAR championships in the 1950s. Bob and Fonty, his brothers, combined for three ARCA victories in 1954 while also racing in NASCAR.


The members of Hueytown's Alabama Gang, originally headed by Bobby and Donnie Allison and Red Farmer, are the most memorable drivers from the state. In 1975, Bobby won an ARCA Racing Series event at Salem Speedway in the midst of his career as one of NASCAR's all-time winningest drivers.


Bobby's son, Davey, actually made his name in the ARCA Racing Series before moving on to NASCAR stardom. In 1983, Davey Allison won both ARCA races at Talladega Superspeedway, and won once at the Alabama track the next year on the way to finishing as the series' runner-up and Rookie of the Year.


Farmer won the other Talladega race in 1984, just before Allison won his fourth at the track the following year. Farmer also won at Talladega in 1988, a true exclamation point on a superb era for Alabama drivers in ARCA.


But ARCA's history moves far beyond those famous drivers and the high banks of Talladega - which, by the way, will host its 50th ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards race in May.


In 1961, the ARCA Racing Series first appeared in the state at Birmingham Speedway. Ernie Derr won a 250-lap race on November 5, one of his 11 ARCA victories. The next year, ARCA raced at the fairgrounds in the state's capital city, Montgomery; Dick Freeman's win there was one of his 12.


Huntsville Speedway hosted ARCA in 1963 and 1965, featuring wins by Earl Balmer and Jack Bowsher, respectively. Bowsher's 1965 win was one of 25 he earned that year - out of 37 races - and remains a piece of one of the most dominant seasons ever turned in by an ARCA competitor.


Next month, after 53 total races in the state and 46 consecutive seasons away from any Alabama track not named Talladega, the ARCA Racing Series will celebrate its 60th Anniversary Season by placing its mark at Mobile International Speedway for the first time. Located in Irvington, Alabama's fastest half-mile is under the new leadership of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series veteran Rick Crawford. A regular host to weekly action and even several late model championship series, the track will use its first ARCA race to honor ARCA greats like Allison and Farmer - no strangers to Mobile themsleves - and look to the series' future.


The Mobile ARCA 200 will take place Saturday, March 10 at Mobile International Speedway. The race is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. Mobile will host practice and Menards Pole Qualifying presented by Ansell on Friday, March 9. The event at Mobile will be ARCA's first at the track.


The complete 2012 event schedule - featuring 20 races at 18 tracks - is available at ARCARacing.com.


The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards has crowned an ARCA national champion each year since its inaugural season in 1953, and has toured over 200 race tracks in 28 states since its inception. The series has tested the abilities of drivers and race teams over the most diverse schedule of stock car racing events in the world, visiting tracks ranging from 0.4 mile to 2.66 miles in length, on both paved and dirt surfaces as well as a left- and right-turn road course in its most recent season. This year, the series will visit Alabama's Mobile International Speedway and Minnesota's Elko Speedway for the first time; ARCA's first visit to Minnesota will give ARCA a race in a 29th state.


Founded by John and Mildred Marcum in 1953 in Toledo, Ohio, the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) is recognized among the leading sanctioning bodies in the country. Closing in on completing its sixth decade after hundreds of thousands of miles of racing, ARCA administers over 100 race events each season in three professional touring series and local weekly events

Le pilote montréalais se prépare pour sa participation à une course de la série NASCAR K&N Pro Series Est le 16 mars prochain.


The Montreal-based driver prepares for his debut race in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, to be run on March 16 at the notoriously difficult race track.


Montréal, 22 Fév. 2012 – En préparation pour sa participation à une course de la série NASCAR K&N Series sur cette piste, le 16 mars prochain,  Ray Junior Courtemanche et son équipe Danam Bonzaï Racing seront à pied d'œuvre lors des essais officiels NASCAR prévus pour le 27 février au légendaire Bristol Motor Speedway.


Ray Junior trépigne d'impatience. « Le demi-mille de Bristol, avec ses virages relevés à plus de 30 degrés, présente un challenge unique pour l'équipe et pour moi. La vitesse en piste et l'intensité du pilotage en font la piste la plus intense à piloter sur tout le circuit NASCAR. »  L'équipe et le pilote devront établir des repères et des réglages de base pour ce circuit unique et des plus rapides, afin d'arriver à la course prêts à rouler fort et établir de bons chronos, comme les font les habitués de cette piste.


Le gratin des pilotes NASCAR d'autres séries tourneront aussi lors de la journée d'essais. Ray Junior anticipe une journée occupée. « En plus d'apprendre la piste et la machine de DGM Racing, je me promets d'observer les pilotes habitués à Bristol, afin d'accélérer ma compréhension du tracé idéal dans les virages.  Les 20 années d'expérience de DGM Racing me permettront aussi d'accélérer mon apprentissage. »


Cette expérience promet d'aider Ray Junior à commencer la série NASCAR Canadian Tire 2012 mieux préparé à affronter les loups tels qu'Andrew Ranger et autres Terry Micks, et surtout, battre les autres recrues en piste.


Pour nous suivre : http://www.facebook.com/groups/bonzairacing/



Montreal, February 22, 2012 – Starting out in a new series, in a different race car, against unknown competitors and at the most challenging race track on the NASCAR scene is, to say the least, a tall order. Driver Ray Junior Courtemanche and his Danam Bonzaï Racing team will begin their learning curve this coming February 27 at the legendary racetrack.


Ray Junior can't wait to hit the track "The half-mile Bristol track, with its high banked corners and high speeds is a unique challenge for me and for the team. The short straights and high speeds make it the most intense race track in North America, almost like racing on a short Kart track with 650 hp and 1400kg to muscle around."  Driver and Team need to pick reference points for the ideal line on the track and determine the best possible suspension settings, so that pre-race practice and qualifying will focus on fine tuning for the race just like those who know the track will be doing, rather than finding base settings.


The best drivers from other NASCAR series will also practice on that day. Ray Junior expects to be very busy the whole day. "In addition to learning the track and how the DGM Racing Chevrolet works, I will be watching how the other driver drive the track to get quick times. I also expect the guys at DGM Racing to share their 20 years of experience to help me get around the place as quickly as possible."


That extra race early in the season is sure to help Ray Junior hit the ground « running » as he starts his first full season in the NASCAR Canadian Tire 2012 Series, where the competition, led by the likes of Andrew Ranger and hard-driving veteran Terry Micks will not make life easy for the rookie driver in his quest for top rookie honours at the end of the 2012 season.

Multiple Champion stock car en catégorie Production ANCA


La saison 2012 en sera une de transition pour le pilote de Mirabel, PATRICK LEPORÉ, le double Champion (2010 et 2011) de la catégorie Production, puisque la voiture #12 évoluera dans la catégorie reine de l'Autodrome St-Eustache, les Sportsman ANCA.


« La voiture est présentement en préparation aux ateliers de Morin Performance. Des améliorations au châssis sont les principaux items qui seront effectués avec le remplacement des « clips » avant et arrière du châssis original GM métrique. » de préciser Leporé en ajoutant qu'un moteur GM 602 fait aussi partie des améliorations qui seront apportées à cette voiture qui a connu ses heures de gloire lorsque Guy Jubinville la pilotait du temps où elle portait une carrosserie de camionnette.


Il n'est pas exclu également que sa voiture de l'an passé fasse quelques apparitions dans la catégorie Production au cours de la saison qui vient.


Patrick Leporé ajoute que la venue d'un commanditaire majeur serait la bienvenue pour disposer d'un peu plus de budget.


« La Coupe Master Sportsman Canada/USA, une série de 6 courses entre les pilotes américains de Plattsburgh et ceux de l'Autodrome St-Eustache, en sols canadien et américain,  fait également partie de mon plan de match… » de renchérir le sympatique pilote qui a la ferme intention de s'imposer et de « prendre sa place » en piste aux commandes de son nouveau bolide.



Au moins deux autres pilotes de la division PRODUCTION feront le saut en Sportsman ANCA. En effet, SYLVAIN CONTANT, de Mascouche, le pilote de la voiture #91 prendra possession dès le 23 février d'une voiture avec châssis tubulaire Morin d'un pilote de la région de la vieille capitale, tandis qu’un autre pilote de Mascouche, MARTIN FAUTEUX graduera dans la « grosse classe » avec une voiture acquise d'Isabelle Tremblay tout récemment. On reparlera de ces deux pilotes sous peu.



Si on ajoute ces 3 pilotes Production à NEIL LEBLOND, de Gatineau, qui pilotait une Légende Modifiée auparavant, et qui s'est porté acquéreur d'une voiture Sportsman de Plattsburgh, ce n'est pas moins de 4 recrues, en date d'aujourd'hui, qui se sont inscrits en Sportsman ANCA pour 2012, et si on additionne le tout aux pilotes de Plattsburgh qui ont signifié leur intérêt pour les Sportsman ANCA pour la prochaine saison, on est en droit de croire que le peloton de cette catégorie pourrait être des plus intéressants pour la saison estivale 2012.


Les pilotes Sportsman  seront en piste le 28 avril prochain, lors de la journée porte ouverte de l’Autodrome St-Eustache, et lors de la première course de la Coupe Master Sportsman Canada USA à Plattsburgh, NY le 12 mai avant de revenir à St-Eustache pour l’ouverture officielle le 19 mai.

Tagliani Successfully Completes Test at Texas Motor Speedway


Fort Worth, TX - February 22, 2012 - After a day of waiting on Monday for track weepers to dry at Texas Motor Speedway, Alex Tagliani and the Lotus test team were ready to hit the 1.5-mile oval on Tuesday.

The test marked the second chance in as many months for the Canadian driver to continue learning the new features of the Lotus-powered Dallara DW12. With only three install laps completed on day one, the second outing brought better results as the Lotus test team, comprised of members from Team Barracuda - BHA, Lotus HVM Racing and Dreyer & Reinbold Racing, completed 132 incident-free laps.


"Overall, I think it was a good day," said Tagliani. "For our first time on an oval in the new car, we learned some amazing things. Of course, we still have some work to do and we didn't have as much speed as we would have liked, but every time I came into the pits with a change, the guys were able to make it happen.

"I am so thankful and proud to be working with this amazing group of guys. Plus, this is the track where Todd [Malloy] and I had a great event last season, so we kind of started today where we left off."

Tagliani also noted that the Lotus group was helpful and positive. He added, "They were receptive to the things we need to improve. It's great to work with people like that."

Now, it's onto the next test with an exciting twist. The official unveiling of the Team Barracuda - BHA car is scheduled for next Tuesday, February 28, during the team's test at Barber Motorsports Park. Media is encouraged to attend. After that, Tagliani and his crew head to the IZOD IndyCar Series open test in Sebring, FL.

On March 25, the season kicks off on the streets of St. Petersburg, FL, where Tagliani has his sights set on Victory Lane. Fans can watch all the action live on ABC.
