Trois-Rivieres, Que — Dumoulin Competition announces today that Louis-Philippe Montour will compete in next Sunday’s NASCAR Pinty’s Series Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres in the #07 Kamloop car prepared by the team. The Montreal native has been competing in various car racing series in Canada and the United States since he was 14 years old and has won various championships, notably in Viper-based cars and in the TransAm TA2 series.
“I have raced once at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres, in 2013, in the Canadian Touring Car Championship (CTCC) series in the GT class aboard a Viper. This will be my first experience in a NASCAR Pinty’s. When I started racing in 2011, my first two driving instructors were Jean-Francois and Louis-Philippe Dumoulin, who taught me how to drive a race car. We always kept in touch and saw each other at local events, especially at Circuit Mont-Tremblant. Jean-Francois was my instructor at Daytona in 2018 for the TransAm final where I finished on the podium, in third place. When I decided to race in the Pinty’s Series at the Grand Prix of Trois-Rivières, it was an easy decision for me to do it with Dumoulin Competition,” explained Louis-Philippe Montour.

A Great Opportunity to Build a Business Partnership
Louis-Philippe Montour represents the fourth generation working in the Montour Ltée family business, which prepares spice blends, sauces and marinades for the meat industry.
“We started a new company in 2014, Kamloop Foods, which specializes in the production of sauces and ready-to-eat meals. In fact, we supply the bagged sauces that go into Pinty’s products. I’ve talked to Anthony Spiteri, Vice President of Marketing & innovation, a few times and he was always asking me when I would be racing in NASCAR Canada. So this is it! We are going to have a great weekend, in a series that is very competitive and with the opportunity for us to promote our family businesses in a series that is supported by our major customer,” concluded the driver.
