After a successful initial season with new entitlement partner Pinty’s Foods, the 2017 NASCAR Pinty’s Series schedule has been released with a 13-races in five Canadian provinces.

The season will open on Sunday, May 21 with the annual Victoria Day weekend event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ont. The popular road course will host the series a second time on Sunday, Sept. 3 in conjunction with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Return to Toronto

For the second straight year, the series will be a part of the Toronto Honda Indy weekend and will feature Canada’s national stock car championship series in the event held by Toronto’s Lake Ontario waterfront on the Exhibition Place street course. The series will be the headliner on Saturday, July 15.

“From Cayden Lapcevich’s memorable championship campaign to the thrilling battles between Quebec’s favorites Andrew Ranger, Alex Tagliani, Kevin Lacroix and Alex Labbe, the 2016 NASCAR Pinty’s Series was one for the record books,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR vice president of weekly & touring series. “With the newly released schedule, the 2017 season is shaping to take that excitement to the next level. The mix of world-class road courses and challenging ovals will provide a great test for drivers and teams, and excite fans across Canada.” 

Trip out west

The series will once again feature an annual trip out West for three races next summer.

Wyant Group Raceway in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan will offer something new next season with a pair of 100-lap events on Wednesday, July 26th and then travel to Alberta’s Edmonton International Raceway for a race on Saturday, July 29. 

“The first season as an entitlement sponsor with NASCAR exceeded our wildest expectations,” said Tony Spiteri, Pinty’s senior vice president, marketing, research & development. “Pinty’s Foods is proud to be part of the top racing series in Canada, and to have our brand represented at some of the best racing tracks in the country.”

Kawartha Speedway in Fraserville, Ontario will host the season finale for the 11th consecutive year on Saturday, Sept. 16. 

The NASCAR Pinty’s Series television broadcast schedule on TSN and RDS will be announced at a later date.
