NASCAR today announced the 2022 NASCAR Pinty’s Series schedule, a 13-race slate that will see the series return to some of its traditional venues after a two-year covid-driven hiatus.

The announced schedule features races at 10 different tracks across four provinces, including the return to the streets of Toronto and the Western Swing.

"It was important for us to return to a traditional-looking schedule for the 2022 season, " said Brandon Igdalsky, Managing Director, NASCAR Touring Series. "We want to bring the exciting, side-by-side racing of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series to our fans across Canada and have appreciated their patience as we navigated the past two seasons. We will continue working with local and provincial officials to put on safe events for our fans and competitors."

The season opens at Sunset Speedway (May 14) for the third consecutive year and concludes at Delaware Speedway (Sept. 25) where L.P. Dumoulin was crowned Pinty’s Series champion this past season. Altogether, the series will visit five short tracks, two road courses, two street courses and the long-awaited debut on dirt at Ohsweken Speedway (Aug. 16). A 13th race will be scheduled at a TBD track for June 25.

The 2021 season was limited to six tracks in Ontario and Quebec due to pandemic-related challenges. The 2020 championship season was cut short and replaced by a six-race Pinty’s Fan Cave Challenge held over three weekends.

Other highlights of the 2022 schedule include:

  • A return of the fan-favorite Honda Indy Toronto street course race on Friday, July 15. Andrew Ranger and Alex Tagliani have combined to win five of the previous six races at Exhibition Place.
  • Two Pinty’s Series races at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP), including the traditional Victoria Day weekend race on Sunday, May 22. The second visit will be the season’s penultimate race on Sunday, Sept 4.
  • The 52nd annual Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières (GP3R) will be run on Sunday, Aug. 7. Quebec-born drivers have won the last seven events.
