Today would have been a practice day the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. In lieu of that – because of COVID-19 – here is a Throwback Thursday (I think it’s Thursday…) flashback to the CASCAR Media Day at CTMP (then Mosport International Raceway and Mosport Speedway) on May 2, 2002.
During the rainy day event, Kerry Micks unveiled his new UFCW sponsor, CASCAR founder Tony Novotny addressed the assembled teams, the media interviewed and photographed the racers, and some drivers even turned some laps on the soggy half-mile Mosport Speedway.
Lots of familiar faces were on hand, including Al Turner, Billy Innes, Chris Fowler, Cole Pearn (I think he went on to have some success…), Dave Connelly, Dave Jacombs, Dave Whitlock, Don Thomson Jr., Jim and Jeff Lapcevich, Joe Plazek, Kerry Micks, Mark Dilley, Mark Graham, Neil Fair, Pete Vanderwyst, Peter Gibbons, Robbie Thompson, Robin Buck, Ron Beauchamp Jr. and Scott Steckly.
