MILLGROVE, Ontario — After a successful first appearance on the NASCAR Pinty’s Series schedule last year, the 1/3-mile will once again host Canada’s national stock car tour once again in 2021.
While originally slated for a 12-race slate and a July visit to Flamboro Speedway, NASCAR officials announced an adjusted 11 event schedule on June 16 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The new calendar will see a double header on Sunday, September 12.
The event follows the same format as it did in 2020, with the Pinty’s Series stars set to run twin features, both weighed for full points towards the championship.
“We are thrilled to have a full championship season scheduled and look forward to crowning a Pinty’s Series champion following the Pinty’s Fall Brawl,” said Chad Seigler, NASCAR vice president, international business development. “We appreciate the hard work of government officials and industry partners, and the patience of our fans, as we planned the 2021 schedule. Our main goal is to put on as safe an event as possible. We also look forward to returning to a more traditional schedule next year, including the long-awaited dirt race at Ohsweken Speedway.”
As mentioned, Flamboro Speedway got their first taste of Pinty’s Series action in 2020, with a pair of 125-features. The first event was won by eventual 2020 Pinty’s Fan Cave Champion Jason Hathaway in a dominating performance as he led green-to-checkered, with Kevin Lacroix and Brett Taylor rounding out the podium.
Lacroix was able to rebound that day, coming back to win the second 125 lap affair as he perfected the same type of performance after starting the race in second. It’d be Hathaway and J.R. Fitzpatrick rounding out the podium this time around.
Flamboro Speedway officials are excited to welcome the NASCAR Pinty’s Series this season, and be able to showcase their facility on a national television with TSN, RDS, and MAVTV.
