The top class of stock car racing in Canada has returned to the starting line.
The NASCAR Pinty’s Series will hold an abbreviated six-race season over three weekends strictly at Ontario ovals. There will be twin 125-lap events at Sunset Speedway Aug. 15, Flamboro Speedway Aug. 29 and Jukasa Motor Speedway Sept 12.
No spectators will be allowed at the tracks and all races will air delayed on TSN and RDS in Canada and MAVTV in the United States.
“While we are disappointed that we are unable to run our intended schedule in front of fans, we’re looking forward to the return of racing in Canada,” Chad Seigler, NASCAR vice-president of international business development and partnerships, said. “I want to thank our friends at Pinty’s for helping us get back on the race track. We are working closely with local and provincial officials and our teams and drivers to put on safe events that are respectful of new regulations from the ongoing pandemic.”
The series will not crown a champion or rookie of the year, but there will be special recognition for the points leader through six races.
