Saint-Eustache (QC), May 15, 2019 – Kevin Lacroix will be back behind the wheel of the #74 Bumper to Bumper/ Total, Gates / PFC Brakes car in the highly-competitive NASCAR Pinty’s series for the 2019 season.
This season more than the last ones, Kevin Lacroix is gearing up to win the Championship title in the Canadian NASCAR series. “This season is different,” declares the drivers. “In the previous seasons, I didn’t have great results on oval tracks, so I would focus on winning on the road courses. However, we found the winning recipe on both types of tracks. We have to have a strategical approach to each race.”
Last season, the Bumper to Bumper team claimed two victories, six Top 5 and nine Top 19. Lacroix is the driver who led the most laps in 2018, with 789 laps at the front of the field.
“This year, we have a different attitude towards the 2019 season. We are much more calmers and ready than last year. We were dominant, but now we have to put our efforts towards not making any mechanical mistakes. On my side, I have to be cleverer. With these elements under control, we have less pressure.”
Kevin Lacroix’s main goal will be to claim a maiden title in the NASCAR Pinty’s series. “We have to play our cards well to win the Championship. We need to be consistent and hope that luck is on our side.” Lacroix renewed his trust in Don Thomson Jr. who will be back as the crew chief of the Bumper to Bumper team effort.
The driver of the #74 Dodge is delighted to welcome once again his long-time partners; Bumper to Bumper, Total, Gates and PFC Brakes. “To see my partners back with me this year motivates me to grab the title for them.”
The Clarington 200 will be Lacroix’s 9th race at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in NASCAR Pinty’s. The green flag will be at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 19. Lacroix is the second driver who has led the most laps on the Bowmanville track. J.R. Fitzpatrick holds the record with an impressive 208 laps led while Kevin has 129 laps led under his belt. The Saint-Eustache native had a hat trick at Mosport, claiming victories during the last event of 2016 and the two events of 2017.
