Scott Steckly, team owner of 22 Racing knows Wyant Group Raceway well and will likely be imparting some of his knowledge to the three 22 team drivers. He has three wins here including 2009, 2013 and his final year of competition and his final championship year in 2015.
Alex Tagliani driving the #18 Rona/EpiPen Chevrolet looks to move up on the podium stairs to better his best finish on this banked oval of 3rd in race number one last year. Over seven starts he has 3 top 5’s and 6 top 10’s.
Marc-Antoine Camirand is making only his 4th start here but has compiled some great stats. All three of the #22 GM Paille sponsored Chevrolet Camaro drivers starts have been in the top five, with his best finish of 3rd coming last year.
Donald Theetge driving the #24 Mercedes-Benz St Nicolas/Circuit Acura entry will be making his final start here in the second twin 125 but he has an impressive record in his four previous starts. No finishes outside the top six with his first NASCAR Pinty’s Series win coming here in the first of two events last year while putting up a total of 110 laps led.
Spectator Gates open at 12 noon (all times are CST), with NASCAR Pinty’s Series practice starting at 12:20 p.m. Qualifying will be up next at 3:00 p.m. with Autograph session taking place for the fans at 4:35 p.m. Green flag will wave for race number one at 6:05 p.m. and green flag for race number two will be at approximately 8:30 p.m.
