DJ Kennington and the #17 Castrol Edge Dodge team return to action this weekend with the first visit to Quebec in the 2023 NASCAR Pinty’s Series season. Kennington scored a third-place podium position in last year’s race at the Autodrome Chaudière in Vallée-Jonction, Quebec and is ready for more success in La belle province.
In the opening two rounds of the 2023 campaign Kennington has posted top-ten results in the #17 Castrol Edge Dodge. The St. Thomas, Ontario racer has scored top-ten results in all but one of the previous seven races at the challenging oval just outside Quebec City.
The 300-lap race is a test of both speed and endurance. Kennington will be using all his skills to keep the #17 Castrol Edge Dodge at the front of the field and come home with another top finish.
Here’s what you need to know.

DJ Quote: “This race really kicked our season into gear in 2022. We finished on the podium here and then followed it up with another podium finish and then carried the momentum the rest of the year. The banking allows you to run two grooves, it makes for great racing and is an exciting show for the fans. We’ve made some improvements to the Castrol Dodge and think we’ll be in a good position this weekend”.
