Hi, folks, it’s another big day for sports in the “306”. On the heels of the big soccer friendly in Regina, this evening we have the traditional midweek NASCAR Pinty’s Series race in Saskatoon, the Velocity Prairie Thunder. Or should I say “races,” because that’s what it is tonight: two 100-lap races instead of the 250-lap single race they had run there previously.
Honestly, I don’t think I like this new format; they’re basically splitting the race in two and giving us less racing from these NASCAR pros on the track. In between, they will have some race nobody cares about involving these Super Late Models. I’m not interested in that, I want to see NASCAR.
There are a few big names racing tonight: Alex Tagliani, Andrew Ranger, D.J. Kennington (who raced at Daytona), L.P Dumoulin and defending Pinty’s Series and Saskatoon champion Cayden Lapcevich, to name a few. The live NASCAR Home Tracks updates of all the action from Wyant Group Raceway can be had here.
