DAYTONA BEACH, FL – The DGM Racing team – led by Mario Gosselin – recently announced the return of fellow Canadian Alex Labbé to the team's No. 36 car for four NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) races this year, thanks to the financial support of Cam-Am.

And last Friday, Festidrag Development announced the return of its partners Rousseau Métal, Prolon Controls, Groupe Brière International, Globocam, MR Drywall and Excavations C.A.T. will put the Saint-Albert, Quebec driver behind the wheel for an additional 12 races, thus guaranteeing a half season with DGM Racing.

"I am very proud of the Canadian companies who have stepped up to help Alex make his mark in the American stock car industry. In racing, money equals speed, and even for a talented driver like Alex Labbé, funding remains a challenge every year," says Martin D'Anjou, President of Festidrag Development. "We are constantly seeking partners and welcome those who wish to help us reach the finish line of the NXS.”

Last year, Labbé performed particularly well on the road courses. Most noteworthy was his spectacular fourth-place finish at the Charlotte Roval, last October. That result was a career-best for Labbé and the team. Festidrag Development’s partners chose to invest in the road courses to capitalize on Labbé’s talents with a strong finish in hopes of attracting additional financial partners, which would allow him to complete the entire 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS).
