Milverton, ON, (Friday August 16, 2019): Event number nine on the thirteen race 2019 NASCAR Pinty’s Series schedule takes place this Saturday August 17th at Riverside International Raceway in Antigonish Nova Scotia. It is a favourite spot on the tour with its high banks, tight confines and fast paced action.
Alex Tagliani driver of the #18 Rona/EpiPen Chevrolet comes into Riverside with three previous starts, all top 10 finishes, and 164 laps led. Tagliani is coming off a strong showing at the Grand Prix de Trois Rivieres where he led laps and was in the hunt for the win. He will be looking to finish strong to stay in contention for the national championship.
Marc-Antoine Camirand driver of the #22 GM Paille Chevrolet Camaro is making his third start at Riverside International Speedway. In 2015 Camirand was one of only two drivers to finish on the lead lap so he knows how to get around this track. Look for him to be pushing hard and running up front.
Donald Theetge driver of the #24 Mercedes-Benz St. Nicolas/Circuit Acura event is looking forward to getting back on the ovals where he is the strongest. After a good showing at Trois Rivieres with a tenth-place finish, Theetge is hoping to notch his first podium of the season at this fast 1/3 mile high banked oval that is frequently referred to as the Bristol of the north.
NASCAR practice will take place at 12:30 p.m. followed by qualifying at 3 p.m. The autograph session will take place at the top of the grandstands at 5:10 p.m. with the green flag for the Bumper to Bumper 300 at 7:45 p.m. For more information on tickets and weekend events please visit riversidespeedway.ca
