NASCAR BUSCH SERIES COMING TO CANADA
It was announced Monday, that NASCAR have agreed to add a NASCAR Busch Series race at Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve August 4th 2007. NASCAR CEO Brian France confirmed the date with local promoters at a news conference. "It's a great setting, well-organized, and we're excited to be here next August," said France. "Getting everything right on both ends was difficult, but we got the right outcome." The Busch Series is step below the top-ranked Nextel Cup series it will race on the 4.361-kilometre road track that plays host to the Canadian Grand Prix Formula One event.
With all that said, Team JNE Consulting intends to field a car for this event with the pending 2006 OSCAAR Outlaw Super Late Model with John Fletcher in the driver's seat. The inaugural event will present a stellar list of teams and drivers that may include fellow Canadians Ron Fellows, Patrick Carpentier and Paul Tracy. "Our intention is to attempt to qualify with some minor backing from our current list of sponsors, but to take a real shot of qualifying for the event with strong equipment it will take a primary sponsor to come on board" Team Spokesman Bill Snowdon commented. "We have a base of a great program for this we have been working towards this Busch Series race for a while and have been active in the sponsor hunt".
Team JNE Consulting has been running primarily in the OSCAAR Series for the past three years. With a run of 21st or better this Sunday team JNE Consulting could lock in the championship.
