BOWMANVILLE, Ont. – (August 15, 2018) The roar of NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) returns to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP) August 24-26 for the Chevrolet Silverado 250 and the opening race of the NCWTS 2018 playoffs.

Canada’s biggest NASCAR event marks the first time in the NCWTS history that an international track will host a series playoff round.

The weekend will feature many of today’s rising NASCAR stars as the Camping World Truck Series makes its sixth consecutive annual appearance at Canada’s legendary track. Johnny Sauter, Brett Moffitt, Noah Gragson, Justin Haley and Ben Rhodes have all qualified to begin their quest for the 2018 Driver’s Championship starting with the Chevrolet Silverado 250. A total of eight drivers will be eligible – Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Stewart Friesen sits seventh in the battle for the playoffs with one race left before coming north to CTMP.

The weekend event also features exciting action from the Canadian-based NASCAR Pinty’s Series and the TOTAL Quartz 200, as well as racing from the Ultra 94 Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada by Yokohama, the Canadian Touring Car Championship, and the Nissan Micra Cup.

Great off-track action and access to paddock areas is included with the purchase of an event ticket. The Canadian Tire Action Zone features fun and engaging interactive displays for kids of all ages, while the CTMP Marketplace includes the Carlsberg beer garden with a DJ playing music throughout the day. Once Saturday’s on-track action comes to an end, the Chevrolet Emerging Artist from the Boots and Hearts music festival will perform, followed by spectacular fireworks. Fans will also have excellent opportunities to meet and speak with drivers at autograph sessions planned for the event.

Discount Weekend Super Tickets and Race Day Sunday tickets are available until August 22. Children 16 and under are free when accompanied by a paying adult. Limited Reserved Camping sites located trackside (some of the best seats in the house), General & RV camping sites, and VIP Hospitality packages (for those who would like to be closer to the action in style) are also still available.
