Earlier this month, Simon Dion-Viens announced that he would run the four road course events that are on the 2014 NASCAR Canadian Tire Series schedule.
“It’s a real turning point in my career,” Dion-Viens asid“I had the opportunity to race on various Canadian and American series like the Grand-Am Cup and the Canadian Touring Car Championship, but this time, the level of competition is higher than ever. The challenge promises to be thrilling and all my team members are highly motivated. I’ll have to get used quickly to driving my Dodge No. 37 BestBuy Auto Parts/ZoneGarage/Kamouraska Chrysler/Castrol car I acquired this car during the summer of 2013 and my team has worked hard to prepare over the winter.”
Viens is a three-time Quebec Champion and won the Supercar Series National Championship last season.
The Quebec native will kick off his season with the season opener at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park on May 18th, followed by Circuit ICAR on July 6th, Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières on August 10th, before another trip to CTMP on August 31st.
“It’s going to be a year of training and development. I aim at a long-term participation in this series, and a presence at some events on oval tracks (this season) has not been ruled out,” he stated. “For 2014, I have the chance to be supported by solid and well-established companies and I intend to represent them successfully on the different Canadian circuits.”
Dion-Viens will be supported by BestBuy Auto Parts, ZoneGarage.ca, Kamouraska Chrysler, Castrol as well as Nanoprotex, FM107, and Ray Refrigération in his efforts this season.
