Last year, Speed51 made history with the first ever Summer Thunder TV broadcast from north of the border in Canada at Ontario’s Jukasa Motor Speedway. This weekend history is set to be made once again, as Summer Thunder TV presented by PFC Brakes heads to its second Canadian short track and first in the Province of Quebec, where $10,000 and a kiss with a pig will be on the line.
Saturday night, the stars and cars of the American-Canadian Tour Late Models are heading to one of their favorite stops, Autodrome Chaudiere in Vallée-Jct, Quebec for the second running of the Bacon Bowl 200.
The expected lineup is set to include some of Quebec’s best Late Model stars, led by former Serie ACT champion Dany Trepanier and Chaudiere home tracker Samuel Charland. Plus, local fans are welcoming back one of their own who has had success down in the Southeast U.S. as 2016 CARS Super Late Model champion Raphael Lessard is set to enter the fray.
But the Yankee lineup is steadily building as well, with 2016 ACT Late Model Tour champion and three-time Vermont Milk Bowl winner, Nick Sweet leading the march north.
Speed51's live broadcast will utilize the public address system at Autodrome Chaudiere, meaning that Saturday's race will be broadcast mostly in French.
Many fans in the U.S. are eager to see how their favorite drivers will fare up north on Saturday and with a Speed51 premium subscription of just $9.99 a month or $79.99 a year, you can see watch the Bacon Bowl 200, along with other Speed51 Network live events, plus highlights, recaps, interviews, and more.
