Following a strong initial campaign together last season in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, once again Wight Motorsports Inc (WMI) with principal David Wight announced that WMI will compete for the full season in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series. Returning this year is Boischatel, Quebec’s Donald Theetge. Joining the WMI team for the road course events this season will be Montreal, Quebec racer J.F. Laberge.
Donald Theetge will race the #80 Theetge Chevrolet/Buick/GMC/Cadillac Camaro and J. F. Laberge will have additional backing from Dagobert Nightclub and Tag EKARTING & AMUSEMENT.
Despite the many challenges of starting a new race team, let alone the global pandemic, WMI turned heads with a speedy debut in 2020. “We did our homework during the preseason test sessions and knew the #80 Theetge Chevrolet/Buick/GMC/Cadillac car would be fast” said Wight. “Having an experienced driver like Donald also helped us run up front right from the start.
With NASCAR returning to a traditional schedule this year WMI will have even greater opportunities for success. “We like that some doubleheader weekends are back too” said Wight. “The #80 Theetge Chevrolet/Buick/GMC/Cadillac was great at Flamboro and Donald has had a lot of success at Chaudière” he added.
Back in the now familiar #80 Theetge Chevrolet/Buick/GMC/Cadillac sponsored Chevrolet Camaro Donald Theetge is eager to return to action after running strong at each track last season. Our car was fast every weekend” said Theetge. The team chemistry developed very quickly, and we showed our potential finishing second at Jukasa, it was like a win for us. I expect us to contend for the win every weekend this season” he added.
J.F. Laberge returns to the Pinty’s series having competed most recently in the 2019 campaign. Laberge ran four races that included both events at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park where he raced his way forward nine positions during the season opening event. “I’m very happy to be returning to this competitive series” said Laberge. “Joining WMI and partnering with Donald is a good situation for everyone and I’m thankful to represent Dagobert Nightclub and Tag EKARTING & AMUSEMENT” he added.
