Drummond_464_223Drummondville, QUEJuly 11, 2009 – By Tom Skibinski, Super DIRTcar Series PR Director

With two rounds of the Super DIRTcar Series already in the record books north of the border, rain finally intervened Saturday afternoon forcing cancellation of the third leg in the Great Canadian Tour slated for Autodrome Drummond.



And that leaves just one more tour event before the inaugural DIRTcar All-Star Weekend, July 17-19, takes center stage at Cayuga County Fair Speedway.

Track and Series officials are currently reviewing the DIRTcar Racing Northeast schedule, with possible openings in August and September pending at this time.

“We always look forward to our annual visit to Drummond and this year was no exception, especially after opening the ’09 Canadian swing with two packed houses at Brockville and Granby,” stated Cory Reed, DIRTcar Racing Northeast Director of Competition & Track Sanctioning. The Big-Block Modifieds have competed at the storied Drummondville oval every year since 1989, with the exception of 2001 when rain was again the culprit.

“The Great Canadian Tour is a favorite for our teams as well as all the French fans that circle it on their calendars every year. We’ve also built up a great fan base from the states that join in every July, as four straight nights of racing at four diverse tracks always make it one of the funnest trips throughout the entire summer,” Reed added.

With the official announcement made at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Super DIRTcar Series teams already at the track loaded up and headed west to get an early jump on their excursion through Montreal en route to Cornwall Motor speedway and the Great Canadian Tour finale in the province of Ontario on Sunday, July 12.
