NASCAR’s Labor Day – or rather “Labour Day” – party goes north of the border this weekend, Friday through Sunday, Aug. 30-Sept. 1, as the Camping World Truck Series not only visits Canada for the first time, but also returns to a road course for the first time in 13 years. The inaugural Chevrolet Silverado 250 will be held at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmansville, Ontario, Canada, and the Truck Series will be joined by the Canadian Touring Car Championship and the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series.
CTMP is a 2.459-mile road course that’s just one part of this multi-track facility. The facility also includes a 0.5-mile paved oval, a driver training facility and 0.87-mile karting track. The track was purchased by Canadian Motorsports Ventures in June 2011. One of the owners who has been busy promoting the track and the race is Canadian “road course ringer” Ron Fellows.
