CAMIRAND TO DRIVE THE NEW 2018 CHEVROLET CAMARO IN THE NASCAR PINTYS SERIES
 
 
 
PRESS RELEASE
For immediate release
 
CAMIRAND TO DRIVE THE NEW CHEVROLET CAMARO IN THE 2018 NASCAR PINTYS SERIES
 
Berthierville, February 19, 2018 – The Chevrolet Camaro is back in NASCAR. While the car made its debut in the top-tier division, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, as well as other touring series, the new Camaro will be introduced in the NASCAR Pinty’s series next May.
 
Paillé, #1 GM dealer in Canada, played a lead role to bring back the Camaro in the Canadian division of NASCAR, as his driver Marc-Antoine Camirand will try to capture the championship in the mythic car that celebrated his 50th anniversary last year.
 
“It was natural for us to showcase Chevrolet’s muscle car in Canada’s most prestigious stock-car series. We wanted to introduce the Camaro in the NASCAR Pinty’s series to have on track a Chevrolet rear-wheel-drive V8 with manual transmission,” commented GM Paillé CEO, Jean-Claude Paillé,
 
GM Paillé’s team met with Chevrolet Canada during the NASCAR Pinty’s race at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, located a few miles from General Motors facilities in Oshawa, ON. 22 Racing team, that prepares n°22 car driven by Marc-Antoine Camirand, developed a new body that replicates Chevrolet’s mythic performance car.
 
“As soon as we had the approval from Chevrolet Canada, R&D started at 22 Racing shop to introduce the new body in the NASCAR Pinty’s series for the 2018 season. Scott Steckly’s team has worked on the car since last fall,” told Mr. Paillé.
 
Driver Marc-Antoine Camirand, who will compete full-time in the NASCAR Pinty’s series in 2018, is excited to be at the wheel of the new n°22 Camaro, thanks to the most important GM dealer in Canada. “I’ve always said how proud I am to work with such passionate and professional partner and team as GM Paillé and 22 Racing. The introduction of the Camaro shows again how serious these people around me are about racing. I’m highly motivated to give them my first win and fight for the championship,” said Camirand.
 
While the Camaro made an astonishing come back in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup, winning the 2018 Daytona 500 with Richard Childress Racing n°3 car driven by Austin Dillon, it will be on track in the NASCAR Pinty’s series in May, for the season opener at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, in Bowmanville, ON.

Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières to host La Série ACT, thanks to Festidrag.TV

Daytona Beach, February 18th 2018 – Le Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières (GP3R) is proud to announce that it will add a second stock-car racing series to its programming  thanks to a partnership with Festidrag.TV. La Série ACT, the canadian division of the American Canadian Tour (ACT) will race in the streets of Trois-Rivières on August 12th in a 100km (41 laps) contest that will be part of its official series’ calendar.

The drivers of the popular stock-car racing series will test their mettle at turning left AND right in the first road course race of La Série ACT’s history. Their American counterparts who compete in the ACT Late Model Tour will be welcome to join the road-racing fever as no race is scheduled to their series’ calendar for this date.

“ We are excited to add a second stock-car series to our road racing weekend as it was hotly demanded by our fans and our board of directors, said Dominic Fugère, general manager of GP3R. We are convinced that the ACT tenors, who are well known by the Quebec public, will give a tremendous spectacle to those who will come out and see them race on August 11th and 12th.  We have been in talks for a few years with the late Tom Curley, president and founder of ACT and it is a great pleasure to have come to terms with his successor Marc-Patrick Roy and the president and producer of Festidrag.TV Martin D’Anjou. “

The addition of the Série ACT to the portfolio of racing at the GP3R is possible thanks to the collaboration of Festidrag.TV, which will be in charge of the commercialisation of this initiative and of Marc-Patrick Roy, président of Série ACT, who will be responsible for the sporting organization.

Martin D’Anjou, president and producer of Festidrag.TV, is proud to contribute to this important addition to the GP3R’s programming that will be shown on RDS2 and TéléMag television networks. 

“ 2018 will mark the fifth season of Festidrag.TV which is positioning itself as THE televised rendez-vous for motorsports fans in Quebec. This partnership demonstrates the collaborative efforts behind our business. If strength is created through unity, this will be a strong, memorable event,” said Mr. D’Anjou.

The addition of a street race at the GP3R will reinforce the value of La Série ACT as a development platform. Its 2014 champion Alex Labbé is showing how the series can be a strong path towards profesionnal stock-car racing. Labbé parlayed his ACT championship into a NASCAR Pinty’s ride and, ultimately, 2017. He has now graduated to a full-time ride in the NASCAR XFinity series which began yesterday with a strong debut showing at the Daytona International Speedway.

This new race in the streets of Trois-Rivières is also part of a broader trend towards more road racing as shown by the introduction of a race on the new Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup And NASCAR XFinity Series.

Marc-Patrick Roy, president of La Série ACT, is pleased to see his drivers being able to race in fron the the extensive crowds of the GP3R, a mythical event in motorsports which marks its 49th running in 2018.

« Even though our drivers are circle track specialists, many of them have already ran road courses, be it in karting, in stock cars or in other forms of auto racing.  Patrick Laperle, Dany Trépanier, Jean-François Déry, Donald Theetge, Pierre-Luc Ouellette, Simon Roussin, Éric Gagnon and even the seasoned veteran Claude Leclerc have all turned right in the past » explained Roy.

This Série ACT event, presented by Festidrag.TV, will be run on the Trois-Rivières street track August 11th and 12th, with the 100 km (41 laps) feature to be ran at the end of Sunday’s schedule, marking the close of the 49th running of the GP3R.
