NASCAR Pinty’s Series Set to Invade Jukasa Motor Speedway this Saturday to open the 2018 season
HAGERSVILLE, ON – Jukasa Motor Speedway will welcome back the NASCAR Pinty’s Series for the Rankin Construction 200 this Saturday.
The national tour will headline an action-packed card that will also feature the wildly popular OSCAAR Modified Tour and OSCAAR Hot Rod Series.
“We finished our 2017 season with a huge show and a lot of momentum and our goal is absolutely to keep that going and deliver the kind of weekend our fans have come to expect from us,” says Jukasa promoter Alex Nagy. “The [NASCAR] Pinty’s Series has some of the best side-by-side racing you could ever ask for and the OSCAAR Modifieds and Hot Rods have had the entire province buzzing already this season”
In the Series’ most recent Jukasa appearance, Quebec heavyweight Donald Theetge was one corner away from victory before ultimately settling for a career-best tying runner-up finish. This Saturday, Theetge will be in the field alongside perennial contender Andrew Ranger, multi-time series winner Kevin Lacroix, D.J Kennington who recently raced in the Daytona 500 in February and a bevy of other front-runners eager to add a Jukasa Motor Speedway triumph to their resumes.
“It’s impossible to point to just one driver to keep an eye on this Saturday,” notes Nagy. “I know that our fans are in for a treat as soon as the field hits the grid this weekend. This is the perfect time to be a Pinty’s Series fan because there’s so much excitement around the roster and what the season has in store. The drivers had a fantastic race at [Canadian Tire Motorsport Park] in May and I’m positive they’ll be bringing that same energy to Jukasa for Round 2.”
In addition to the top-shelf action on track, Jukasa and Pinty’s Delicious Foods have also joined together to host a wing-eating competition at the start finish line prior to the 200-lap NASCAR Pinty’s Series race.
