Kyle Busch returns to Autodrome Chaudière?

Late november 360 nitro (http://360nitro.com/chroniques/2013-11-23/le-champion-nascar-sprint.html) reported that it would be 2012 Sprint Cup champion who would visit the track.


As i was extending my holiday wishes, my source told me it would be the return of Kyle Busch instead.

Who is right?

Nevertheless, if the promoters accomplish the task, you better not wait to purchase your tickets...

NASCAR heads to Autodrome Chaudière in 2014

                                                                                                                    

 

NASCAR heads to Autodrome Chaudière in 2014

 

Quebec, QC (Dec. 14th 2013) Autodrome Chaudiere is proud to officially announce that the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series will perform at the Vallee-Jonction ¼ mille in 2014. We have always said that we wanted the biggest stock-car events in Canada and having the NCATS series in Vallee-Jonction in 2014 demonstrates again the innovation and magnitude of Autodrome Chaudiere. The June 14th event will be a 300 lap race showcasing the best Canadian NASCAR drivers in the country. With this announcement, we can expect to have several Québec drivers enter the event on the most inclined Quebec Oval. It will be impressive to watch these drivers fend off the best drivers on the Canadian Tire Series; Steckly, Kennington, Fitzpatrick, Roy and more.

The Autodrome Chaudiere owner, Dany Lagacé, is thrilled at the idea of having NASCAR perform at his racetrack: “I have always said that I wanted the biggest stock-car events in Quebec and having NASCAR on the schedule gives even more notoriety to the Vallee-Jonction oval and brings it to another level.”

NASCAR is the most prestigious sanction in North America and having them at Autodrome Chaudière is a dream comes true for the two owners of the Québec oval. The 300 lap event on the Beauceron ¼ mille will be very exciting and without a doubt a “Do Not Miss” event on the calendar.

NAPLES, ME (December 13) – The Pro All Stars Series (PASS), in association with series supporter Northern Race Tire, will be presenting a unique set of awards to the each of the division's Super Late Model Champions.  The 2013 PASS National, PASS North, and PASS South Super Late Model Champions will each be presented with diamond encrusted championship rings in recognition of their hard work during the racing season.  In addition, the PASS Pro Late Model, PASS Modified, and PASS Sportsman champions will also receive championship rings, similar in design, but unique to honor their championship seasons.

The PASS Champions' rings are manufactured and designed by Stylecraft.  From Super Bowl rings to civic awards, Stylecraft has been making fine jewelry handcrafted in the United States for over six decades.  The 2013 PASS Champions' rings will be massive in size and will be emblazoned with the PASS logo and other jewels.  Additionally, each member of the championship winning teams will also be presented with one-of-a-kind PASS Championship belt buckles to commemorate their accomplishments.

Durham, NC's Jay Fogleman and Farmington, ME's Cassius Clark will be the first recipients of racing's newest annual award.  In what he has said was his final season racing for a championship, Fogleman competed for multiple teams on the way to his second straight PASS National Championship and was also able to claim his first PASS South Super Late Model Championship.  Like Fogleman, Clark was finally able to take his first PASS North Super Late Model title after years of trying.

"We are very excited to be giving this opportunity to North America's best Super Late Model racers," said PASS President Tom Mayberry.  "Jay Fogleman and Cassius Clark exemplify everything PASS stands for and no matter where they go, these rings will stand as a symbol of the hard work and dedication it took to achieve one of short track racing's ultimate goals."

            In 2014, PASS and Northern Race Tire will once again present each of the series Super Late Model champions with custom rings and belt buckles in recognition of their hard work and sacrifices.  The 2014 season will kick off with the 3rd running of the Florida Winter Meltdown at New Smyrna Speedway February 7-8.  The Florida Winter Meltdown will serve as the first race for both the PASS National and PASS South Super Late Model seasons. The complete 2014 schedules for the PASS North and PASS South Super Late Models can be found at ProAllStarsSeries.com.  The PASS National Series schedule will be released shortly after the New Year.

            The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America's premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as PASS South's Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway, the Autobus La Qubecoise Triple Crown at Autodrome Chaudiere, and the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains 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. Please visit ProAllStarsSeries.com for more information.  And, don't forget to "Like" the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to keep up with breaking news as it happens.

ACT 2014 Schedule Released

ACT 2014 Schedule Released

                                                           

For Immediate Release:                                                           ACT – 120213-74

            Waterbury, VT – The American Canadian Tour (ACT) released its 2014 schedule which is highlighted by visits to nine (9) different Northeast tracks. The schedule includes a total of twelve (12) events with nine (9) Championship point counting events and three popular ‘special’ events on the calendar.

The traditional event to open the 2014 campaign on April 12-13 will once again be at the Lee USA Speedway in Lee, New Hampshire. The ACT has been visiting the 1/3 mile oval since Red and Judy MacDonald purchased the speed plant in 1987. “It is just one of those relationships that have endured throughout the past 25 years. We tried to help Red and Judy when they first started, and they have been there for us whenever we needed help over the years. This kind of relationship, in this type of business, is generally very rare, but greatly appreciated” said Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour, which was established in 1986.

The home of the ACT, Thunder Road International Speedbowl will host its only point counting event with the Merchants Bank 150 on opening weekend April 26-27. Next up will be the historic Spring Green 114 to be held at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Fair Haven, VT on Sunday, May 4. This will be the fourth opening day Spring Green event at the super fast ½ mile oval.

The teams will take a couple weeks off before returning to action at what has become a favorite track of many ACT teams, the Airborne Speedway. The first of two point counting events will be held on Saturday, May 17 at the Plattsburgh, NY oval. The final point event of the season, and second at Airborne, will be the Fall Foliage 200 on Saturday, September 27.

The month of June will see two events in the Granite State. Riverside Speedway in Groveton will hold a 150 lap race on Saturday, June 7. In one of the most memorable events of 2013, winner Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. from Hudson, NH said, “This bullring races unbelievably great. We had so much fun racing last year. It was white knuckle and about as close racing as you can have. I am excited about having Riverside on the schedule again.” A regular stop on the ACT Late Model Tour since 1998, the scenic White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP) is scheduled for an annual 150 lap event on Saturday, June 21.

One of New England’s premiere race tracks, Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (BRMS), will again present an ACT event on Saturday, August 9. The very competitive 1/3 mile seacoast Speedway has become one of the most exciting events on the annual schedule for both teams and fans. A different winner at every BRMS event for the ACT Late Models is what the record book shows. The summer visit promises to produce one of the best events of the year.

Two weeks to re-group and off to the only US-Canadian event of the year, the 5th annual CAN-AM 200 will take place at the Circuit Riverside Speedway in Ste Croix, QC. The scenic 5/8ths mile speedway sits next to the St Lawrence River and always guarantees a competitive event as the best of the Serie ACT and US teams square off for bragging rights. This event will take place on Saturday, August 23.

The US ACT competitors will also compete throughout the summer race season at three ACT sanctioned ‘special non-point events’. Three popular events will post combined purses of over a quarter million dollars ($250,000.00). The “International” at the Airborne Speedway will take place the weekend of July 20. The best of all ACT teams from both the US and Canada will be invited to the New Hampshire Motor Speedway during the NASCAR Cup Chase weekend in September for the 6th annual Bond Auto ACT Invitational. The 55th run for the Milk Bowl will be held at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, VT and will close out the 2014 season the weekend of October 4/5.

Nous sommes confiants que le succès obtenu l'an dernier par le Championnat européen de rallycross FIA se déplacera avec aise sur la scène mondiale ce qui en améliorera la visibilité et la portée aupr`s des amateurs. La vitesse avec laquelle ces développements se mettent en place façonnent le présent en une période vraiment excitante pour le RallycrossRX.»

 

IMG Motorsports a été nommé comme promoteur du Championnat européen de rallycross FIA l'an dernier ce qui a permis d'attirer rapidement l'appui des meilleurs pilotes, équipes et événements du sport.

LA SÉRIE ACT-QUÉBEC DE RETOUR EN 2014

Pour diffusion immédiate

LA SÉRIE ACT-QUÉBEC DE RETOUR EN 2014

Amateurs et compétiteurs seront heureux d'apprendre que la série ACT-Québec sera de retour dans la Belle Province en 2014 pour une neuvième année consécutive. Au total neuf compétitions ont été inscrites au calendrier.

C'est donc dire qu'il y aura deux épreuves de moins que la saison dernière, soit une à l'Autodrome Montmagny, mais la plus importante est celle des frères Guillaume et Jean Bergeron de rayer de leur calendrier la course qu'ils présentaient sur le triovale de Sanair. Au cours des deux dernières présentations, ils ont cumulé des pertes assez importantes en raison de dame nature et d'une assistance inférieure aux prévisions.

À part de ces neuf confrontations, les équipes de la série ACT-Québec seront invitées à prendre part à des courses majeures au pays de l'Oncle Sam, soit la deuxième édition de l'International à la piste Airborne de Plattsburgh, le Bond Auto Invitational dans le cadre du Sylvania 300 à la piste New-Hampshire Motor Speedway ainsi que le fameux Milk Bowl à la piste Thunder Road de Barre au Vermont. À elles seules, ces trois événements comportent plus de 250,000$ en bourses et bonis.

Au Québec, la saison débutera à l'Autodrome  St-Eustache, le 24 mai prochain et se terminera au même endroit, le 14 septembre.

CHARLOTTE, NC (November 21) – Excitement continues to build as one of the most anticipated short track events of the fall, the 8th Annual Mason Dixon Meltdown, gets set to run this weekend at Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, NC.  The Meltdown will feature a 200 lap event for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models that will determine both the PASS National and PASS South champions.  

PASS National points leader Jay Fogleman leads southern frontrunners Kyle Grissom, Spencer Davis, Jody Measamer, Trevor Noles, John Batten, Tyler Church and others against a formidable group of challengers from New England led by Ben Rowe, Joey Doiron, Joey Polewarczyk, Kyle Desouza, Derek Ramstrom, and Steve Legendre.

An event creating nearly as much buzz as the PASS Super Late Model race will be a 30 lapper for the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Cars.  It will be the first time winged sprints cars with 410 cubic inch engines have raced on asphalt in North Carolina since 1989.  The Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Cars will make an all-out assault on the overall track record at Southern National Motorsports Park and will feature such open wheel stars as Jimmy McCune, Brian Gerster, Davey Hamilton, Jr., Troy Decaire, Kody Swanson and Brian Tyler.

Additionally, PASS officials announced today the release of the 2014 tentative schedules for the PASS South Super Late Models and PASS Pro Late Models.  The PASS South Super Late Model schedule will be highlighted by the return of the series to two of the South’s most prolific half-mile speedways.  The season will begin February 7-8 and will begin both the PASS South and PASS National seasons by kicking off Florida Speedweeks with the Winter Meltdown at New Smyrna Speedway.  Greenville-Pickens Speedway returns for two events in 2014.  The historic South Carolina track first began hosting stock car events in 1946 and was once a hotbed for Super Late Model racing.  In addition to the season opener, Greenville-Pickens Speedway will once again host the Firecracker 150 on July 3.  That event returns to Greenville-Pickens where it was held from 2008-2010.

PASS South and the PASS National series will once again contest the Easter Bunny 150 at Hickory Motor Speedway on April 19 and will conclude the season on November 22 with Mason Dixon Meltdown at Southern National Motorsports Park.  Since their inceptions in 2006, both the Easter Bunny 150 and the Mason Dixon Meltdown have grown in stature to become two of the premier events in short track racing.  Additionally, two Virginia tracks will join the PASS South Super Late Model family of tracks with both Franklin County Speedway and Lonesome Pine Raceway hosting the series for the first time in 2014.

            “We are very pleased to be able to release our 2014 PASS South Super Late Model schedule at such an early date,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry.  “We’ve had great support from our competitors this year and we hope by releasing our schedule in November that will give them plenty of time to prepare for next year.  We’ve got some great tracks returning to the schedule and we look forward to making lasting relationships at our new venues as well.”

Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, NC will host three PASS South Super Late Models in 2014 on May 31, July 12, and the Mason Dixon Meltdown on November 22.  Hickory Motor Speedway will also host multiple events with the Easter Bunny 150 on April 19 and the Over The Mountain 150 on September 20.

Dillon Motor Speedway will host the 9th Annual South Carolina Clash on March 8.  Orange County Speedway, a favorite of many PASS South Super Late Model competitors, returns for a ninth straight year with the Orange Blossom Special on April 5.  Caraway Speedway will also be back as the PASS South Super Late Models will compete as part of the popular 12th Annual North-South Shootout on date in November still yet to be determined.

South Boston Speedway will host two PASS South events in 2014 on June 7 and August 16.  Fellow Virginia racetracks Franklin County Speedway and Lonesome Pine Raceway will host PASS events for the first time ever in 2014.  Franklin County Speedway has seen a revival this year under veteran racing promoter Langley Austin and will welcome the PASS South Super Late Models to the facility on June 21.  Likewise, the picturesque Lonesome Pine Raceway in Southwest Virginia will see the return of Super Late Models for the first time in more than a decade on August 2.

The PASS Pro Late Models will compete in at least 11 companion events with the PASS South Super Late Models in 2014 with up to two additional dates being added.

Although the 2014 schedule is nearly complete, additional dates could be added in May and on October 18 by December 4.

Look for schedules for the PASS North Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds, and PASS Sportsman to be released in the near future.

The Pro All Stars Series is recognized as North America’s premier sanctioning body for asphalt Super Late Models and boasts such marquee events as PASS South’s Easter Bunny 150 at the historic Hickory Motor Speedway, the Autobus La Qubecoise Triple Crown at Autodrome Chaudiere, and the legendary Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains 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.  Please visit ProAllStarsSeries.com for more information.  And, don’t forget to “Like” the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to keep up with breaking news as it happens.
