Milverton, ON, (Wednesday Sept. 18, 2019): The NASCAR Pinty’s Series is heading south of the border this weekend for their only event held outside of Canada each year. New Hampshire Motor Speedway is hosting the 2nd Annual Full Throttle race weekend featuring NASCAR Pinty’s Series, K & N East Series and Whelan Modified Series.
In 2018, NASCAR added the Visit New Hampshire 100 to it’s 13 race schedule and in 2019 will compete here again. New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a 1.058 mile (1.703 km) oval located in Loudon, New Hampshire and has hosted NASCAR racing annually since the early 1990’s. It is the largest sports and entertainment facility in New England.
We hope to see Alex Tagliani driver of the #18 Rona/EpiPen Chevrolet back behind the wheel again this weekend after missing the final race at the soon to be closed Autodrome St. Eustache due to a viral infection two weeks ago. In 2018, Tagliani qualified fourth and finished seventh at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, a finish he will want to improve on this year.
Marc-Antoine Camirand driver of the #22 GM Paille Chevrolet Camaro is making his second start here this weekend and after a disappointing finish in 2018. Camirand had his #22 Camaro up front for the entire race and while running second to eventual winner Lacroix, ran out of fuel with two laps remaining. Look for them to try to re-capture that moment and get to the podium.
Donald Theetge driver of the #24 Mercedes-Benz St Nicolas/Circuit Acura entry will look to duplicate or better his 2018 result of third. He is looking to make a statement here in what could be his final visit to New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series.
NASCAR Pinty’s Series fans will be able to watch the #VisitNH100 from New Hampshire Motor Speedway at 12 p.m. ET Saturday Sept. 21st on the TSN app in Canada or in the United States on Fans Choice TV.
The weekend race schedule starts off on Friday Sept. 20th with practice from 1:30 – 2:45 p.m. Saturday will have qualifying at 9:00 a.m., autograph session at 10:30 a.m. with the green flag for the Visit New Hampshire 100 at 12:05 p.m. E.T.
