Wednesday Sept. 16, 2015, Milverton, ON,:   Scott Steckly and his 22 Racing Team have been working tirelessly over the past two weeks to ensure they are ready to defend their lead in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 championship points on Saturday night at Kawartha Speedway. 


Steckly enters this event with a slim nine point margin over two fierce competitors and expects to have to run up front all night.  Finishing in the top four will clinch the title no matter what anyone else does.  "We aren't looking at this race any different than when we came here in 2013, down five points for the championship," said Steckly.  "We had to lead every lap and win the race that year to take home the championship.  We come out every race with that attitude but we know it will be a fierce battle right down to the checkered flag."


As in the past nine years the NASCAR finale will be hosted by Kawartha Speedway, a track the drivers really appreciate.  "There are two racing grooves and you can run side by side here," said Steckly.  "It's a great track for us to finish up our season on every year."


The gates will open on Saturday Sept. 19th at 12 p.m. for spectators, with final practice beginning at Noon, Qualifying at 3:15, Autograph Session at 3:50 and the green flag for the Pinty's 250 at 5 p.m.


Scott Steckly and 22 Racing are supported by Canadian Tire, MAXIMUM TOOLS, Mobil 1, Erb Group, AW Millwrights, Reefer Sales, Sturdy Formed Concrete and NOCO Lubricants.
