ST. THOMAS, ON (August 26, 2021.) This coming weekend DJ Kennington and the #17 Castrol Edge Dodge team will compete in three races at two very different racetracks as the NASCAR Pinty’s Series returns to the province of Quebec.
First up, it’s a welcome back to Circuit ICAR for the first time since 2017. A ticklish road circuit that’s set up on the tarmac of Mirabel Airport in Mirabel, Quebec on Saturday afternoon. Kennington has scored five top-ten results in seven races at ICAR. Then it’s a doubleheader event with twin 150-lap races at the Autodrome Chaudière on Sunday. The two-time series champion scored a podium finish in 2015 and has finished top-ten in five of six at the track located in Vallee-Jonction, Quebec.
Here’s what you need to know.
