QUEBEC CITY, QC – During the recent Quebec Auto Sport Car Show, in Quebec City, the newly formed Shamrock Promotions Inc. group unveiled their new logo and the name and details about Quebec’s newest elite stock car series for Late Models.
The Canadian Stock Car Championship LMS Division (CSCC LMS) is comprised of many of the same racers who had previously competed in the Série ACT. The new series came about after series director Marc Patrick Roy was let go by the American-Canadian Tour.
Initially referencing the word Quebec in the series’ name, that reference was dropped as the new group intends to put on races outside of Quebec, possibly as early as 2019.
The 2018 schedule currently consist of eight races, shared between Autodrome Montmagny (4), St-Eustache (3) and the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières. A 9th race is currently being discussed and is expected to be confirmed soon.
The Championship season will debut on May 20th at Autodrome St-Eustache (ASE) near Montreal on the 4/10th mile oval. They will return on July 7th and again on September 8e for a third time when they close off the Championship, this time on the same program as the NASCAR Pinty’s Series.
Two 125 laps’ events will be hosted at Autodrome Montmagny on June 9 and 24th. There will be two 200-lap events respectively July 21st and September 1st where patience and pit strategy will come into play.
For the second time only in the history of the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières the LMS cars will be showcased on the legendary streets of the GP3R on August 11 and 12 during the “NASCAR weekend” which will also host the NASCAR Pinty’s Canada’s premier stock car touring series.
