NASCAR Trucks at CTMP Canadian Tire Motorsport Park debrief

For the second time this year I took my little red roadster on another thousand mile road trip north of the border to Ontario, Canada. Much like the trip in the beginning of the season for Victoria Day, Ontario was freezing cold. It didn’t help that I decided to camp… at least for the first […]

Post Card from the Labour Day Weekend at Mosport with NASCAR Trucks, Pinty’s Series, Micra Cup, Porsche GT3 Cup Canada and CTCC

Here’s a bunch of pix from my Labour Day weekend in Canada, volunteering for NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for the very first time… but also for the second time this year (after Victoria Day in the beginning of the season) working the Canadian NASCAR Pinty’s Series, Nissan Micra Cup, Canadian Touring Car Championship and […]

Post Card from NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at CTMP in Canada

Mission accomplished! I volunteered for my first NASCAR Truck race… had to leave the US to do it, but what better place to volunteer a NASCAR event than at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park? Funny enough last week during IMSA at VIR, Mosport came up during Radio Le Mans broadcast a few times… I remember hearing […]

NASCAR Camping World Trucks Spotter Guide for Labour Day Weekend at CTMP – Mosport

Since I haven’t done a NASCAR Camping World Trucks race yet, I’ve been doing some homework on what the liveries of these racetrucks look like… a spotter guide if you will, or as NASCAR calls them: paint schemes. Unfortunately nascar.com didn’t have them handy. So after some research online, and some weird links to ESPN’s […]

Marshaling NASCAR

Whenever I travel to volunteer overseas most people enquire not about our American sports car or open wheel racing series… but instead about NASCAR. More often than not people ask about how they too could come to America and work a NASCAR event… and often times I have to give them the bad news that marshals […]

Victoria Day Speedfest the debrief

WOW! What a fantastic weekend! Victoria Day Speedfest was my first International event volunteering this year. As such I was really looking forward to the experience and the racing didn’t disappoint. It certainly helped too that everyone was super friendly and welcoming and I took this opportunity to sign up with the local club MMS […]

Mazda MX-5: 1,000+ mile Road Trip from New Jersey to Ontario, Canada for Victoria Day Speedfest

Happy sesquicentennial anniversary Canada! I had no idea Canada turns 150 until I saw all the colorful banners at the Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. My 500+ mile road trip north was for the same reason I went last year. Victoria Day Speedfest event is an excellent combination of racing series at an amazing facility that makes […]

Mazda MX-5 Miata Cup Cars Victoria Day Speedfest at Mosport

All of these cars you have already seen before on this blog… a few weeks ago at VIR, but now Canadian Tire Motorsports Park is in the background and since I left home at the crack of dawn to make sure I can’t them on the track for their Thursday test session, I’m going to […]

Post Card from the Victoria Day Speedfest paddock at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

The best part about arriving to a race track on Thursday is your ability to see all the teams unload, unpack and participate in the unofficial test day… which means you can take lots of pictures! I certainly did just that! My favorite were the PWC cars of course, but also the Canadian CTCC touring […]

Post Card from the Nissan Micra Cup at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park during Victoria Day Speedfest

I survived my first Nissan Micra Cup at CTMP this weekend! What is the Micra, you may ask? It’s only the coolest race series in North America at present… so cool they are almost guaranteed to roll while crashing into your station, and I had two of them launch my way spraying the whole team […]
