It was during a press conference held this Friday at La Cache à Maxime that the promoters of the Autodrome Chaudière (QC), André Poulin and Yves Pelchat announced the name of the NASCAR star who will be present with Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North cars during the June 20 program.
Always having a heart to develop and innovate to make Autodrome Chaudiere a diversified motorsports complex, developers have introduced novelties to keep the diehard short track fans in Quebec entertained.
But it was also imperative for them to continue the ascension regarding to the programs of Stock Cars initiated by Mr. Dany Lagacé and Kevin Roberge over the past two years. This type of progression has led Autodrome Chaudière to international fame.
One of the events that contributed greatly to this status is the tradition from the last two years of hosting a star from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, who joins PASS drivers for one race. This event, which has become a must, is undoubtedly one of the most important programs of the season.
Following the visits from Kyle Busch the last two years, the step was high and the expectations from fans were, too.
This year again, Mr. Pelchat and Mr. Poulin wanted to host a driver recognized both for his successes and accessibility to the fans.
In this matter, you cannot ignore the invaluable work of Kevin Roberge who was tirelessly involved in this project.
With all of this being said, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Denny Hamlin will join PASS North competitors on June 20 for the 150-lap feature event.
Hamlin, who most recently won the All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway, has 24 career victories in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and 11 victories in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. He also finished third in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series “Chase for the Cup” in 2014.
Tickets are currently available for the cost of $45 per ticket. For all tickets purchased in pre-sale, there will be the chance to win one of the 50 visits for the autograph signing on the track with Denny Hamlin. Fans that purchase pre-sale tickets will also be able to choose their seat at 1:30 before the owners of general admission’s tickets.
