Results/News / CBRT WELCOMES BRETT TAYLOR FULL-TIME IN 2018

CBRT WELCOMES BRETT TAYLOR FULL-TIME IN 2018
 
November 16, 2017. Following a successful 2017 campaign Canada’s Best Racing Team (CBRT) is hard at work preparing for competition in the 2018 NASCAR Pinty’s Series that will again race on ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits across Canada.  In the first of several upcoming team announcements CBRT is pleased to welcome Calgary, Alberta racer Brett Taylor as a full time participant for the upcoming season.
 
This past year Taylor was behind the wheel in a CBRT prepared car for three events and having him back next season was something CBRT General Manager Joey McColm was hoping to achieve.  “From the moment Brett joined our group it was a really good fit,” said McColm.  “He’s a passionate guy and wants to do anything he can to be better and help make the team better.  That’s the kind of person you want on your team.
 
Taylor raced for CBRT in the season opening event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this past year and quickly turned heads with his performance.  In extreme conditions that went from wet to dry and back again, Taylor moved smartly through the field from his 19th starting spot on the grid to finish ninth, his best finish in four series races to that point.  For his efforts Taylor gained the most positions of any driver that day and claimed the Rookie of the Race award.
 
“To come in and achieve that kind of success right away, that’s special,” said McColm.  “We want to do everything we can to help Brett become the Rookie of the Year in 2018”.
 
Joining CBRT on a full time basis to drive the #46 car has Taylor equally excited and looking forward to the 2018 season.  “I’m so excited for the opportunity to race a full season.  I have always watched these guys on TV and proud to race with them.
 
Brett Taylor will race the #46 CBRT machine this season as it has a special meaning to him.  The choice was inspired by the movie “Days of Thunder” that first jolted Taylor’s enthusiasm for NASCAR and has him focused on success for the upcoming season.  “This is my chance to put Alberta on the map in NASCAR,” said the driver.  “I’m hoping through my commitment to the rookie campaign and this series, that I can help bring more awareness to NASCAR in western Canada and what great racing we have at home,” he added.
 
Early in the New Year there will further announcements regarding marketing partners for Brett Taylor and the CBRT group for the upcoming season.  The 2018 NASCAR Pinty’s Series race schedule is expected to be finalized shortly.
 
You can find the most up to date information on the CBRT website www.cbrteams.com and there are openings for interested partners to come on board in time for the new season. The NASCAR Pinty’s Series consists of races on ovals, road and street courses across Canada.

22 RACING & DONALD THEETGE TEAM UP AGAIN IN 2018
 
 
 

 
For Immediate Release
 
22 RACING AND DONALD THEETGE TEAM UP AGAIN IN 2018
 
MILVERTON, ON, Wednesday Nov. 15, 2017:  It is with great pleasure that 22 Racing announce today the return of Donald Theetge to the team for 2018.  Theetge will compete in the #24 Mercedes-Benz St Nicholas/Circuit Acura entry in all of the NASCAR Pintys Series oval events.

“Donald showed in 2017 he is a threat to win in every event,” said Scott Steckly team owner of 22 Racing.  “He came up just short of two wins last year and he has something to prove in the coming season.  We look forward to fielding cars for him this year and him getting that first NASCAR Pintys Series win.”

“I am very proud to be back in 2018 with Scott and his team,” said Donald Theetge.  “I think we proved we can win in this series with a good team like 22 Racing and I like working with them. In 2017 every race we entered we had a car good enough to finish in the top 5.  We all know in the 2017 season we should have  won two races and we finished second but in 2018 we expect to be in the winners circle.  Scott will be announcing my partner to race the road courses soon and we expect to be racing for the championship. I think winter will be too long.”

In ten NASCAR Pinty’s Series starts with 22 Racing, Donald has posted 2 poles, 6 top 5’s, 8 top 10’s with 409 laps led.

The 2018 NASCAR Pinty’s Series schedule has not been released yet but it is expected that Theetge will compete in events at Delaware Speedway, Autodrome Chaudiere, Auto Clearing Speedway, Edmonton Int’l Raceway, Riverside Speedway, Autodrome St. Eustache, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Jukasa Speedway.

ACT Returning to Thompson World Series in 2018

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                         ACT112017-26

Waterbury, Vt. – American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park officials have announced that the ACT Late Model Tour will return to the speedway in 2018 for the Sunoco World Series of Speedway Racing. ACT will crown their 2018 Champion with a 75-lap event which is scheduled for Saturday, October 13.

 

Thompson Speedway has hosted the season finale for the ACT Late Model Tour every year since 2015, and the World Series event has consistently been one of the largest draws on the series schedule. Eddie MacDonald, Bobby Therrien, and Brian Hoar have each visited Victory Lane in previous Tour events at the high-banked 5/8-mile oval. Thompson also uses ACT rules in their weekly Late Model division with many of their top drivers participating in the Tour event.

 

“Since switching to the ACT Late Model rules package, our Late Model division car counts have nearly tripled, and fans have been thrilled with the exciting wheel-to-wheel racing that takes place in the division,” Thompson Speedway General Manager Josh Vanada said. “It was a pleasure for us to fulfill one of Tom Curley’s wishes to bring the American-Canadian Tour to Thompson for their championship event. Each October, we welcome them back to crown their champion, which has become an annual privilege for us. We look forward to continuing the great tradition under Cris Michaud and Pat Malone’s ownership.”

 

ACT officials are finalizing the full 2018 schedule and hope to release it within the coming weeks. For more information, contact the ACT offices at (802) 244-6963, media@acttour.com, or visit www.acttour.com or www.thompsonspeedway.com.
