Mt. Albert, Ontario, Canada – Veteran Kerry Micks has announced today his retirement from the NASCAR Pinty’s Series as an owner and driver.
“I have had over 38 years of great fun, racing across Canada. I have always been very fortunate to have the support of some of the very best Canadian Companies. Some of my crew members have been with us almost since the beginning. This announcement is a little bittersweet for me as racing will always be in my blood, but I also really enjoyed my first summer off in 38 years in 2020. Susan and I have talked about this moment for a while; she will say years “said Kerry with a grin.
Micks Motorsports would like to give a special Thank You to Byron and Diane Nelson of Leland Industries and Larry Chan of Beyond Digital Imaging. Leland came to us along with their long-time and continued support of Mark Dilley. Beyond Digital came on board with us when NASCAR came to Canada. All sponsorships start out as a business, but the friendships will always be there. We could not have lasted as long as we have without the hard and dedicated work of our team who worked countless hours alongside me in our race shop year after year. Bob, Clare, Rino, Terry, Cheryl, Ken, Rick, Scott and Mike are some of the best.
“We have won a few different championships, a lot of races and even managed as owners to be a part of Adam Martin and TJ Rinomato winning their NASCAR Rookie of the Year awards. I have no complaints or regrets. We wish all the best to Mark and TJ in 2021 and you can bet I will be watching and cheering for them both “stated Micks.
The 2021 NASCAR Pinty’s Series season gets underway on Sunday, May 23 at Sunset Speedway in Innisfil, Ontario, the same track where Kerry started his stock car racing career in 1984.
