After originally being announced back in December of 2019, the NASCAR Pinty’s Series is set to make its dirt track debut at Ohsweken Speedway for round ten of the 2022 season.
The 3/8-mile oval in Ohsweken, Ontario, founded by Pinty’s Series driver, Glenn Styres, will play host to 100 laps of dirt slinging action.
Many dirt track stars from Canada and the U.S. will join for the series first time on dirt, including Canadian Stewart Friesen from the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Cup Series driver Christopher Bell, former Cup Series driver Ken Schrader and Ohsweken local, Aaron Turkey.
