BOWMANVILLE, ON – On Wednesday, May 3, Canadian Tire Motorsport Park played host to a ‘Test & Tune’ day for the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, which opens its 2017 season at the legendary road course on May 21.
Photographer Ryan Dupont was there and has shared some of his images from the day. Thanks to Ryan for sharing, and you can see more of his work here.
Many teams and drivers were in attendance on this rare, sunny spring day. In terms of major events, Alex Tagliani’s new #18 Lowe’s Dodge suffered significant front-end damage after making heavy contact with the tirewall in turn 5. The racer was unhurt but the 22 Racing team has its work cut out for it getting the car back in shape for the opener.
In what was a nice touch, the series’ title sponsor, Pinty’s Delicious Foods, was on hand with its trailer and served lunch to everyone, including offering some new product lines to sample.
