The NASCAR Nationwide Series race weekend at Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villneuve will not happen in 2013. According to a statement from NASCAR, the sanctioning body was not able to come to an agreement with the promoter.
“NASCAR appreciates the support and enthusiasm the great fans of Montreal have shown during our six years of exciting racing at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. It’s been a great run for the NASCAR Nationwide Series at this historic venue. NASCAR was preparing to return for 2013, however we were unable to come to an agreement to renew the Sanction. We’re in the process of finalizing the NASCAR Nationwide Series schedule for next season. Our fans will continue to see the competitive racing the series is known for, featuring some of the best young talent in NASCAR.”
Inside Track has reached out to the promoter of the Montreal event for comment and will run that when it’s available.
