Grand Prix of Edmonton welcomes NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Jim Haskins, President and General Manager of the Grand Prix of Edmonton made the following announcement: "Today, we are very excited to announce that the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series will race in this year's Grand Prix of Edmonton.

"The NASCAR race is a newly-formed series incorporating elements of the CASCAR series which ran last year in Edmonton. CASCAR has had a loyal following across Canada, especially in Edmonton going back to the 1970's.

"But with NASCAR's new participation this is going to be an even bigger, better series. It takes our event to a higher level when we can say the new NASCAR series is coming to Edmonton with all its market presence. In fact, Edmonton is going to be unique bringing together both the Champ Car World Series and NASCAR Canadian Tire Series in one event.

"We anticipate NASCAR will bring 35 to 40 of their throaty & noisy cars to the Edmonton track to support the world- class Champ series which has already attracted such an enthusiastic crowd to our city. It's going to be an amazing weekend."
