“Our team has worked hard to put together a full schedule that will showcase the exciting, door-to-door racing Pinty’s Series fans have come to expect,” stated Chad Seigler, NASCAR’s vice president of worldwide organization advancement.

“Out of an abundance of caution, we are focusing on stand-alone events, especially as we kick off the season. Though we are unsure of when we can welcome fans back to the race track, we will continue to work with local and provincial officials to put on as safe an event as possible.

“The health and safety of our competitors, officials and fans are our top priority.”

The series will host its very first dirt race in 2021 – an occasion that was canceled by the pandemic in 2020. Ohsweken Speedway’s launching will happen on Aug. 17.
