The offseason brought a new entitlement sponsor in Pinty's Delicious Foods Inc., and the new look NASCAR Pinty's Series will take the track this weekend with some new championship contenders.

Scott Steckly, who collected his fourth championship last year, will be back at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park for the Clarington 200, but this time in an owner's role. The 44-year-old from Milverton, Ontario, will field the No. 22 for Kaz Grala this weekend.

Defending race winner Gary Klutt, 23, is one of the series rising young stars and finished fifth in the championship en route to the Jostens Rookie of the Year Award.

Ten rookies are entered this weekend, including Pier-Luc Ouellette, Kevin Lacroix and teenager Cayden Lapcevich. Ouellette is again filling in for Alex Tagliani, while Lacroix won twice last year when running a partial schedule. Jason Hathaway came up just short last year in the title chase after winning at CTMP in the fall, while former champions Andrew Ranger and LP Dumoulin expect to be in the hunt again.

Practice session will be held Saturday with qualifying starting at 3:45 pm that same afternoon. The race will go green at 1:00 pm on Sunday.
