First-year entitlement sponsor Pinty’s Delicious Foods will bring a fresh look to the NASCAR Pinty’s Series in 2016, but the new series logo won’t be the only update that fans see this weekend at the Motorama Custom Car and Motorsports Expo.
The NASCAR Pinty’s Series is once again participating in the annual motorsports trade show with an information booth, series drivers and a show car, and attendees of this year’s Motorama Show will notice a couple of new features on the race car.
Go FAS Racing has its No. 32 Can-Am Ford on display with driver Alex Labbe in attendance. The car, maintained by Dave Jacombs Racing, will exhibit two of the most noticeable changes to the series’ cars for 2016 with an updated Ford Fusion nose and hood and the inclusion of the driver’s last name on the rear window and the Pinty’s logo on the windshield.
Both enhancements are similar to those made in recent seasons to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series race cars. The optional Ford nose and hood updates follow previous modernizations to the NASCAR Pinty’s Series’ Dodge and Chevrolet models.
The mandatory addition of driver names to the rear windows will be applicable for all three manufacturers in 2016.
Can-Am was in the spotlight as the Motorama Show opened. Not only is Can-Am new to the NASCAR Pinty’s Series as the primary sponsor for Go FAS Racing and Labbe as they expand to a full-time schedule, but it was announced Friday at Motorama that the Sept. 4 event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park will be the Can-Am 200.
The Motorama Show is an annual motorsports trade show that marks the unofficial open to the racing season in Canada. This year’s event will run March 11-13 at the International Centre near Toronto Pearson International Airport in Mississauga, Ontario.
On Sunday, March 13 NASCAR Pinty’s Series select drivers will participate in a question and answer session on the stage from 12:30-1:15 p.m., and will sign autographs at the Pinty’s Series booth from 2:15-3:15 p.m. NASCAR Hall of Famer Bobby Allison will also participate in the autograph session.
The NASCAR Pinty’s Series display will also feature the No. 74 Bumper to Bumper/Total Dodge driven by 2016 Jostens Rookie of the Year contender Kevin Lacroix.
The 2016 NASCAR Pinty’s Series schedule will commence on May 22 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario. For event and ticket information, please visit canadiantiremotorsportpark.com.
