DJ Award BanquetSt. Thomas, Ontario’s DJ Kennington driver of the #17 Castrol/Mahindra Tractor Dodge was in Concord, North Carolina this past weekend to attend the NASCAR Touring Series Awards Gala that recognized the accomplishments of the participants in each of the NASCAR divisions. The trip south for Kennington was well worth the journey as he collected the trophy for second place in the overall series championship, along with the coveted Mopar Cup as the top finishing Mopar powered driver in the series.

In addition to the Awards Dinner Gala, NASCAR also organized other events for those attending the festivities that included driver briefings, seminars and tours of the some of the most technically advanced race shops in the vicinity. “This was quite a big deal for all of us” said DJ Kennington. “We got to really see first hand how important these series are in the business of NASCAR” he added.

Kennington was awarded the Mopar Cup on Friday morning and was proud to accept the trophy. “These Mopar powered engines are the reason we’ve been able to have such great success in the series” he stated. “The motors generate so much horsepower, they’re incredibly reliable, and you have to have that to win races” he concluded.

The Castrol/Mahindra Tractors Dodge driver also accepted the trophy for finishing second overall on stage at the Concord Convention Centre on Saturday night. “I’m so proud of the whole team for the season we had” said the driver. “We had two wins this year, and finished top-ten in eleven of thirteen races, top-five in nine out of thirteen. Normally that would be good enough to win the championship but we came up a little short, but we’re hungrier than ever for next year” he stated.

Kennington and company are already at work preparing for the 2010 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series season and the thirteen race schedule was released during the weekend’s events. While many of the venues are familiar to the competitors the one new event on the schedule has the series running on the streets of Exhibition Place as part of the Toronto Indy weekend. “We’ve seen how exciting these stock cars are to watch on road courses in the last few years, they’re a lot of fun to drive too and I’m really looking forward to racing in Toronto again” said Kennington.

You’ll also be able to follow the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series on television in 2010 with all thirteen races broadcast on TSN, most in High Definition. Look for a newly redesigned website coming soon to follow the success of DJ Kennington and the #17 Castrol/Mahindra Tractors Dodge.

Beauchamp Award BanquetRon Beauchamp Jr. and the #60 Mopar Parts Dodge team gathered together with other stars of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series and the other NASCAR Touring Series in Concord, North Carolina this past Saturday night to be recognized for their accomplishments this past season. The Awards Gala Banquet culminated nearly a week of activities organized for the participants.

Earlier in the week tours of several nearby race shops for the Spring Cup and Nationwide Series teams were organized for those attending along with racing seminars and keynote speakers including Junior Johnson. “It was a great night for the Mopar Parts Team” said Ron Beauchamp Jr. “We all came down together and it was a nice way to thank the team for the many hours of hard work they put in this season. We had some time racing Go Karts and then this at great night here that NASCAR put on really shows how important the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series and the other Touring Series are for NASCAR” he added.

Beauchamp was presented with the trophy for third place in the overall Championship standings in front of the crowd of well over 500. “I accepted the trophy but this is for the whole team” said Ron Jr. “We had a really strong season with eleven top-ten finishes and eight top-five finishes. We had great reliability and the team prepared a great car for me to drive every week. We had tremendous support again from our sponsors at Mobil 1, Exide and of course Mopar. It all added up to a really positive season.

While Team Mopar enjoyed their success in 2009 the work is already underway for the next season and the 2010 race was also announced this past weekend. While much of the schedule sees competitors returning to the same great venues, there is one notable addition to the thirteen race schedule as the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series joins another high profile event as the feature race on Saturday July 17th as the feature race at the Toronto Indy weekend. “It just shows how big this series is becoming” said Beauchamp. “We’re part of the major racing events in Montreal, Edmonton and back running on the streets of Toronto exposing NASCAR racing to more and more fans” he added.

Once again in 2010 you will be able to watch all thirteen events of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series on TSN, Canada’s Sports Leader. Team Mopar appreciate the recognition of their accomplishments and wish to thank the race fans and sponsors for their extraordinary support.

Jeff LapcevichJeff Lapcevich and the #23 Tim Hortons Chevrolet team have battled through just about every obstacle imaginable during the 2009 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series season so far. During round number twelve this past weekend at Riverside International Speedway just outside Antigonish, Nova Scotia the countless hours of effort by the entire team were rewarded with a second place podium finish.

Right from the first laps during the morning practice session the Tim Hortons Chevrolet team was on their game. “The car felt good right away” said Lapcevich. “Even on the first few laps I could really feel that the handling ws right and that we had a good car” he added. Lapcevich would back up his practice times with an impressive fifth fastest qualifying time and start the 300 lap feature event on the inside of row three.

When the green flag dropped the action heated up and the Tim Hortons Chevrolet was up to the Challenge. “Everything we did to the car was right for the race” said the driver who had little trouble keeping up with the lead group in the early going. As several of the leaders made their first pit stops Lapcevich was able to stay on track and gain even more ground.

When the Tim Hortons team did make a stop for fuel and left side tires they fully expected to make a second stop at the next opportunity to put on fresh right side tires. They would not get the opportunity to do so as the race ran under green from just past the halfway mark to the finish.

Lapcevich would restart the race on lap 160 at the front of the field and show the Tim Hortons team’s potential that has been there all season long. Jeff would handle the traffic and keep up an incredible pace handling lap traffic and fending off all challenges for nearly 100 laps. “The car was just really good for us” said the satisfied driver. “I was expecting to make another stop for right side tires so I wasn’t too concerned about saving them for the rest of the race and that might have cost us in the end” he concluded.

As the laps ticked away it became obvious that there was not going to be one more stop and it was up to the Lapcevich to try and keep the Tim Hortons Chevrolet at the front with very worn right side tires. After a heated battle with the #27 car Lapcevich would surrender the lead after leading a race high 97 laps.

Lapcevich would not be challenged for position again for the rest of the event and crossed the finish line second for the best finish this season for the Tim Hortons Chevrolet team. “It’s really nice after a disappointing race last week to bounce back this way” said the driver. “We’ve known all year that we can run up front with the rest of these guys and it’s really satisfying to get the results we’re capable of” he adde.

Jeff Lapcevich and the Tim Hortons team travel to Kawartha Speedway in Faserville, ON for the final event of the 2009 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series this coming Saturday September 26th. This year’s series events consist of ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits from coast to coast in Canada. All events are once again scheduled for broadcast on TSN.

DJ KenningtonDJ Kennington and the #17 Castrol/Mahindra Tractor Dodge team traveled to Riverside International Speedway for round number twelve of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series this past weekend. While showing the big horsepower of their Dodge motor in qualifying by scoring the pole position, Kennington would suffer a mechanical breakdown ending his day early

Persistent rain showers forced postponement of the race from Saturday evening to Sunday afternoon but the delay didn’t bother the Castrol/Mahindra Tractor Dodge team. Kennington wasn’t pleased with the times posted during the morning practiced and the team made significant changes to the car. “It’s not that we were too far off we knew that we had to make the car faster” said Kennington.

The Castrol/Mahindra Tractor Dodge team made the right changes to the car and Kennington was the only competitor to post a time under fifteen seconds, putting down a blazing lap of 14.917 seconds for an average speed of 80.365 MPH to secure his second pole position of the season. “It was a great job by the team, the car was great during those qualifying laps” said the driver.

As the green flag waved for the 300 lap main event Kennington would hold the lead for the first thirty one laps. “We wanted to lead some laps and take the bonus points and we were able to do that” said Kennington. While Kennington surrendered the lead he was never far from the front. “With a 300 lap race I wanted to save the car a little bit” said the driver.

During a caution period near the one third point of the race Kennington made a scheduled stop for fuel. “Our strategy was to get our fuel first and then leave ourselves some options for later in the race” said the driver. The Castrol/Mahindra Tractor Dodge team would not have the opportunity to use any of those options.

Just before the halfway point of the race as Kennington was again moving the Castrol/Mahindra Tractors Dodge toward the front of the field he began to slow on the race track. “There was no warning but I knew it was serious right away” said the disappointed driver afterwards. Knowing the severity of the problem Kennington immediately brought the Castrol/Mahindra Tractors Dodge behind the pit wall, his day was over early. “It’s a shame” said Kennington. “We had a really fast race car today and we had some kind of mechanical failure under the hood. This Castrol/Mahindra Tractors Dodge was fast, it felt great and we really had a chance to get another victory. We’ll head back home and find out exactly what it was and we’re going for the win at the final race next week” he added.

After twelve races DJ Kennington is third in the overall championship standings.

Joey HanssenThe steps forward in the learning process for Joey Hanssen driver of the #40 Prime Champ Dodge continue to come at a remarkable rate. At round number twelve of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series this past weekend at Riverside International Speedway Hanssen scored his best career starting position in the series and ran well all day until a part failure finished his day early.

Right after the morning practice Hanssen climbed from the #40 Prime Champ Dodge and with a smile on his face said “I really like this place”. The high banks of the Antigonish, Nova Scotia track truly suite the aggressive driver. “You could really attack the corners and feel the speed” he added.

Hanssen would post an impressive qualifying run and score his best starting position of the year with starting the 300 lap feature event on the outside of row six. “I had a nice improvement in qualifying this week” said the Prime Champ Dodge driver. “It was nice to pick up our best starting position of the year and give us a good chance for the race” he added.

When the green flag waved to begin the action the Prime Champ Dodge fell back several positions as Hanssen found the cars handling to be too tight for the track conditions. “The car was just too tight at the start of the race” he added. “I tried to move up the track a little bit to help the handling a bit” he added.

As the laps ticked away the Prime Champ Dodge driver continued to battle with his ill handling race car. As the race reached the one third mark the team made a scheduled stop for fuel and also adjusted the handling in hopes of improving the performance.

Returning to the battle the 18 year old rookie driver gained confidence and experience with every lap and did begin to move toward the front of the field and eventually move into the top-ten just past the halfway mark of the race. “We made our stop and it did help to loosen the car up a little bit, but it wasn’t quite enough” said Hanssen.

As the race went green from just past halfway to the finish, Hanssen continued to work diligently to keep the Prime Champ Dodge moving forward. Unfortunately his efforts and those of the team would be squashed as Hanssen lost power and coasted down pit road to the attention of the crew.

The Prime Champ Dodge suffered a broken axle, a mechanical part failure that would end their day early. It was a disappointing end to the race for the entire crew. “It was a tough way to have our day end” said the driver afterwards. “We had our best starting spot of the year and we ran pretty well for a good part of the race, inside the top-ten but when you have a part break it’s frustrating. We know we’ll be ready for the last race though. We tested at Kawartha Speedway a couple of weeks ago and we should be pretty good” he added.

After eleven events Joey Hanssen continues to lead the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series rookie of the year standings and will look to clinch the title at the final race of the season.

The 2009 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series season comes to an end this coming Saturday September 26th at Kawartha Speedway near Fraserville, ON. This years schedule consists of thirteen races on ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits from coast to coast in Canada. All thirteen races will be seen on TSN.

Ron Beauchamp Jr.Ron Beauchamp Jr. and the #60 Mopar Parts Dodge team have enjoyed a season of consistency and success in 2009. Round number twelve of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at Riverside International Speedway near Antigonish, Nova Scotia was the perfect example of this season’s success. Beauchamp would qualify the Mopar Parts Dodge on the front row, score his seventh top-five finish of the season, and move into second place in the overall championship standings.

Gloomy rain showers would postpone the scheduled action to Sunday but right from the morning practice Team Mopar was on their game. Beauchamp would post an impressive practice time late in the session and back that up with a starting spot on the outside of the front row in qualifying. “We made a few changes to the car for qualifying and that really made a huge difference” said the obviously pleased driver. “For the race we went a little more conservative in the set up but knew we’d have a strong car” he added.

When the green flag waved to begin the 300 lap feature event Beauchamp battled with the #17 car for top spot. “Of course we both wanted to take the lead right from the start” said the Mopar Parts Dodge driver. “Right off the get go the car was good. I didn’t push things too hard early but when I got the lead from the #17 car I thought, uh boy this car is really good” he added.

Beauchamp would take over top spot on lap 32 and then begin to build his lead. “The car was just so good that we kind of checked out for a bit” said the driver. “Then when the caution flag came out around the 100 lap mark we came in for fuel, we wanted to get our fuel stop done early. I’ve got to hand it to the crew for the great pit stops today and making the right calls during all the stops, they were awesome all day” said the appreciative driver.

Beauchamp would continue to be among the front runners all day keeping the Mopar Parts Dodge in contention with his smooth driving style and plenty of Dodge horsepower.

Just past the halfway point in the race Team Mopar would perform what turned out to be their final pit stop of the day for tires and then were forced to leave things in the hands of the driver from that point on. “After that stop we had a long green flag run right until the end of the race and unfortunately for us the car kept getting tighter and tighter” said Beauchamp.

The handling characteristics of the Mopar Parts Dodge were not acting as the team had expected and Beauchamp had his hands full trying to maintain a front running position. Following the race the team would discover that the ride height of the car was a bit too low and the front end parts that controlled the handling properties became stressed and wore away causing the difficult behavior in the car.

Right to the checkered flag Beauchamp worked the car as hard as he dared, fighting for every position. As the race reached its conclusion Beauchamp battled with the #9 car for a podium position. Team Mopar would come up just a bit short and settle for a fourth place finish. “The #9 car got me out of shape just a little bit on the final corner and then we drag raced to the checkered flag but he beat me by about a foot I think” said the driver.

Another consistently strong finish by Ron Beauchamp Jr. also helped him in the Championship points fight as he moved into second overall, twenty points ahead of the third place team. “I’m really proud of how well this team has done all year, we’ve been running up front, scoring podium finish and running really consistently. Now in the final race next weekend we’re focused on getting that victory we’ve come so close to all year” he concluded.

The final event of the 2009 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series takes place this coming Saturday September 26th at Kawartha Speedway in Fraserville, ON. Team Mopar will participate in all thirteen events that take place on ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits. You can follow the action all year long with the television broadcasts on TSN.

Jeff LapcevichJeff Lapcevich and the #23 Tim Hortons Chevrolet team had posted back to back top-ten finishes in the most recent rounds of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. As the tour returned to Ontario for round number eleven at Barrie Speedway this past Saturday night they were expecting more of the same success. They would encounter a day and night of disappointment.

As practice began during the afternoon Lapcevich and the Tim Hortons Chevy team were perplexed by the lack of speed their car showed. “We started out slowly during the practice session” said the driver “but as the hour went on we started to get a little bit better, and then with some adjustments after practice we thought the car would be better still” he added.

Qualifying would also be disappointing for the Tim Hortons team, after the two lap dash the team noticed that one of the rear tires was out of round causing all kinds of problems. “With a bad tire it just doesn’t matter what else you do to the car” said Lapcevich. “Fortunately we found the problem right away”. Because of the work done on the car after qualifying Lapcevich would start the Tim Hortons Chevrolet at the back of the field for the 300 lap main event.

As darkness fell and the green flag waved to begin the race Lapcevich immediately began looking for openings to move the Tim Hortons Chevrolet forward. His progress was hampered in the early going by several yellow flag caution periods. “Just as we’d get going somebody would have trouble and we’d be slowed down again” said the aggravated driver. “When we did start to get some green flag laps in I did manage to pick up a couple of spots” he added.

While the Tim Hortons Chevrolet did gain a few positions there wasn’t the kind of progress the team felt they were capable of and Lapcevich continued to be mired in traffic. Following a pit stop for fuel and adjustments the team chose not to take on new tires at the same time so they could maintain better track position.

The track position did not help the Tim Hortons Chevy driver as just past the halfway point the car slowed coming out of turn four and stopped on the race track. A broken gear would be the culprit and it would end their night early. “It was an all round frustrating day” said Lapcevich. “We really had to fight for everything from the start of the day, and even with the hard we work the Tim Hortons guys put in it didn’t really seem to help us that much. We’ll regroup this week and be ready for Riverside though”.

Jeff Lapcevich and the Tim Hortons team will travel to Riverside Speedway near Antigonish, Nova Scotia for round number twelve of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series on Saturday September 19th. This year’s series events will consist of ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits from coast to coast in Canada. All events are once again scheduled to appear on TSN.

Joey HanssenJoey Hanssen driver of the #40 Prime Champ Dodge continues to demonstrate his racing skills and quick adaptability to stock cars in his rookie season of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. At round number eleven this past Saturday night at Barrie Speedway the 18 year old once again showed he is a quick learner and achieved his best career series finish to date.

After completing only a few practice laps at the tight 1/3 mile oval Hanssen was quick to proclaim his like for the challenging circuit. “I like this track, it’s challenging that’s fun for me” he stated. Though he would only qualify his Prime Champ Dodge in the nineteenth position Hanssen would later see that as a positive. “Qualifying wasn’t as quick as I’d hoped, I was a little bit uncomfortable in the car” stated the driver. “But I think it was a good thing to start at the back and watch everything” he added.

When the 300 lap main event began there was plenty of action to see with the first of eight caution periods coming on lap two. Hanssen knew the key to a good finish in the Prime Champ Dodge was to stay out of trouble, something that is easier said than done at a track like Barrie Speedway. “Right away people were hitting the wall and driving into each other and trying to move cars out of the way. I just followed everybody and until about 100 laps to go then I started to get a little more aggressive.

Hanssen’s cautious approach would serve him well as he continued to gain positions throughout the race. In the late stages Hanssen was one of only eight cars on the lead lap and showing tremendous poise for a young racer making his first trip to Barrie Speedway. As the checkered flag waved ending the competition the Prime Champ Dodge would cross the finish line in eighth position. It would be the best finishing position of the rookie drivers’ season, and his fourth top- ten finish in eleven races.

Showing maturing and racing smarts Hanssen not only finished the battle at Barrie in the top-ten, he also had a race car with barely a mark on it. “I’m really happy with how well things went” smiled the driver afterwards. “It’s the best finish of the year and we have only a little bit of body damage on one corner, so we don’t have too much work to do before the next race at Riverside. I’m really looking forward to that track” he added.

After eleven events Joey Hanssen continues to lead the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series rookie of the year standings by over 100 points.

The 2009 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series moves to Riverside Speedway near Antigonish, Nova Scotia for round number twelve this coming Saturday, September 19th. This years schedule will consist of thirteen races on ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits from coast to coast in Canada. All thirteen races will be seen on TSN.

DJ KenningtonDJ Kennington and the #17 Castrol/Mahindra Tractor Dodge team returned to Barrie Speedway in Ontario for round number eleven of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. The 1/3 mile bullring is a track where Kennington has tasted victory before and the team hoped to make up some ground in the championship standings. Though they scored their ninth top-ten finish of the season, this night however would leave them feeling irritated.

During afternoon practice the Castrol/Mahindra Tractor Dodge showed it’s usual strength posting quick times with each turn around the track. Kennington would qualify on the outside of row two in the fourth position. “It was a solid afternoon for us” said Kennington. “Everything looked good, the car felt great and we had a good starting spot near the front which is very important at Barrie” he added.

The promise of a successful night would quickly evaporate quickly. Right from the drop of the green flag Kennington knew there was a problem with the Castrol/Mahindra Tractor Dodge and was on the radio his crew alerting them to the situation. “The car seemed to bobble right of the start” said the driver. “We had a caution right at the start of the race and I hoped it wasn’t too serious. On the restart however the car felt underpowered and I knew we had to deal with this right away” he added.

Kennington would bring the Castrol/Mahindra Tractor Dodge to pit road and the crew checked to make sure it wasn’t a dislodged plug wire or other quick fix and sent him back on track. It was immediately apparent that the problem was more serious and Kennington would be forced to return to the pits again to rectify the problem.

With remarkable speed the Castrol Crew changed the carburetor on the car and returned Kennington to the fight. “It was really frustrating to have that kind of a problem” said the disappointed driver afterwards. “We didn’t have any indication at all during practice or qualifying, for some this issue popped up at the start of the race” he added.

While still early in the race the Castrol/Mahindra Tractor team was a dozen laps down to the leaders and Kennington set out to make the best of the bad situation. With the repairs solving the power problem Kennington would use all of his skills and the Dodge horsepower to run laps as quick as the leaders for the rest of the night.

While it certainly wasn’t the kind of race the driver and the rest of the team expected, they continued to work hard and finished the 300 lap event with a tenth place finish. “I just hate it for Castrol and Mahindra Tractors and everybody that helps us out with our program that we had this kind of fluky problem” said the driver. “Somehow we managed to get a top-ten finish out of it but we clearly showed that we had a car that was capable of much more tonight, we’ll jut have to show it next week at Riverside Speedway” he concluded.

After eleven races DJ Kennington continues to sit second in the overall championship standings.

The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series will be back in action this coming Saturday September 19th at Riverside Speedway near Antigonish, Nova Scotia. This year’s race schedule consists of thirteen races, all of which will again be broadcast on TSN.

Ron Beauchamp Jr.Ron Beauchamp Jr. and the #60 Mopar Parts Dodge team knew they would be in for an adventurous night at round eleven of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series at Barrie Speedway. Little did they realize know just how much of an adventure the 300 laps of racing at the 1/3 mile oval would be for them.

During the afternoon practice session Beauchamp would use the #60 Mopar Parts Dodge horsepower to the fullest and post the second quickest practice time. “We came here to Barrie and tested recently and I think it really helped us a lot” said Beauchamp. The team would qualify fifth quickest and line up for the main event on the inside of row number three.

As the green flag dropped to begin the battle Beauchamp knew he would have to fight for every position. “It’s so tough to pass here” said the driver. “It’s inevitable that you’re going to have contact with the other cars, you just try not to get too aggressive right away and hope there is a little give and take” he added.

Through the first part of the race the Mopar Parts Dodge showed great consistency lap after lap and on such a small track the front of the pack was quickly making its way through slower traffic. As Beauchamp looked to make his way past the #21 car along the front stretch there was contact that sent the #60 into the infield. “I was trying to go around him but he kept staying outside high to the wall, then when I tried the inside I got pinched down” said the driver.

The Mopar Parts Dodge Avenger team was forced by NASCAR Officials to make a pit stop to remove some loose body work. When the team returned Beauchamp to the race he would be a couple of laps down. “I didn’t think we went two laps down, but that’s what was ruled, the guys did a great job to get the repair work done so quickly” he added.

Though the body was a little tattered, the Mopar Parts Dodge was still fast as Beauchamp had little difficulty keeping the same pace as the leaders. Beauchamp would continue to march the #60 car forward as best he could and hope that attrition would help improve their position.

In the late stages of the race Team Mopar would be dealt another serious blow. Coming through corners one and two Beauchamp was faced with another car that was off the pace and appeared to be trying to access pit road. Unfortunately that car made significant contact to the right front corner of the Mopar Parts Avenger. The damage was so significant that they were unable to continue. “The #95 car must have had some kind of problem and I think he was trying to get to the pits, but we hit hard and it ended our day” said a disappointed driver.

Even with only a few days to get ready for the next event at Riverside Speedway the team is optimistic. “Chris Couvillion and I will be working on this car right away” said Beauchamp. “We’ve got it dialed in so well that we know we can be really good at Riverside, we finished on the podium last year and we expect to be that good again. “It looks like there isn’t any frame damage just bolt on parts so we will be able to complete the repairs without any problem” he concluded.

After eleven races Ron Beauchamp Jr. continues to sit third in the overall championship standings.

The 2009 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series gets back in action in two weeks at Barrie Speedway on Saturday September 12th.
