PETERBOROUGH, ON (July 20, 2022)- Bryan Cathcart and the #71 Cathcart Racing team have embarked on the journey to western Canada for the next three rounds of the 2022 NASCAR Pinty’s Series. This will be the first trip west of Ontario for the series since 2019 due to travel restrictions and everyone involved is excited for the return to the prairies.
First stop will be the tight oval of Edmonton International Raceway in Wetaskiwin, Alberta for 300-laps of action Saturday July 23rd followed by twin 125-lap races at Sutherland Automotive Speedway on Wednesday July 27th.
The compact schedule presents quite a challenge to the #71 Cathcart Racing team, but everyone has pitched in to have the car prepared and ready to race.
Fan excitement in the west is also growing too with special events planned to include a driver meet & greet at the Wetaskiwin Mall on Friday and a hauler parade to the track Saturday morning before the race.
“It’s great to have the series traveling out west again, there’s a lot of fans that have missed it. A couple of new tracks for us to learn, but I think we’ll be competitive at both places. I’m used to tight tracks like Edmonton, and we ran really well at Sunset earlier and some of that translates to Saskatoon. All the guys have done a great job preparing for this trip and we’re looking forward to having some fun and doing well”. -Bryan Cathcart, Driver #71 Dodge
