Saint-Eustache (QC), September 19, 2019 – Kevin Lacroix is heading to the United States this weekend to participate in the penultimate meeting in the NASCAR Pinty’s series. Last year at the same time, the Bumper to Bumper driver won the series’ inaugural victory in Loudon, on the New Hampshire Motor Speedway (https://www.nhms.com/), and thus clinched his second career oval victory.
This time, however, it will be a different approach that the Saint-Eustache native driver will adopt as the next two races will be crucial. Indeed, he is now leading the Drivers’ Championship, only 2 points ahead of Andrew Ranger.
“I say it at each event, but more importantly now, we must play our cards right this weekend,” said the driver. “Now, it’s about winning the overall championship, not winning a race. At this point, I prefer to concede a victory rather than the championship. “
However, the driver of # 74 Bumper to Bumper / Total / PFC Brakes / Lacroix Tuning car qualified in second place during last year’s race and then proceeded to lead 90 of the 100 laps of the event. Once again, this year, he is hoping for success as he has mastered this 1.058-mile (1.7 kilometers) course.
A year ago, the drivers had minimal experience on this oval, so it will be interesting to see these same drivers evolve during the second New Hampshire 100. The start of the race will be on Saturday at 12:05 pm.
