MILVERTON, ON, (Wednesday April 4, 2018)- Donald Theetge is excited to announce today that with the assistance of sponsors Mercedes-Benz St Nicolas and Circuit Acura he will contend for the 2018 NASCAR Pintys Series Championship. Initially Theetge signed up to race in the nine oval events but with backing from his great sponsors, he will now contend for wins on both the ovals and the road courses.
“I can’t tell you how happy we are to have Donald racing for us in all 13 events this year,” said team owner Scott Steckly. “He is a great competitor and very methodical in his approach and should be a force to be reckoned with in all of the events. I fully expect he will be in the hunt for the 2018 NASCAR Pintys Series Championship when the final checkered flag falls in September.”
In 2017, Donald had two near misses for wins and in 2018 he hopes to again contend for those wins and more to add to his racing resume. He also looks forward to a return to New Hampshire Motor Speedway as the NASCAR Pinty’s Series makes its debut at this track in September; the first time the series has competed outside of Canada. He has raced there in the ACT series three times over his career most recently in 2016.
“I am so thrilled to get to race in all thirteen races this year with Scott and his team,” said Donald Theetge. I know I can win in this series with the great equipment 22 Racing gives me and I want to prove it after last year. But I owe a huge thank you to my business partner and brother Benoit as well as sponsors Mercedes-Benz St. Nicolas and Circuit Acura. Without them I would not have the chance to fulfil this dream of mine.”
The 2018 NASCAR Pinty’s Series is made up of thirteen events across Canada from Nova Scotia to Alberta. The season kicks off at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park with the Castrol Presents the Victoria Day Speedfest weekend on May 19/20th.
