(June 22, 2022) The Wight Motorsports Inc (WMI) teams are making their way to Newfoundland for the first ever NASCAR Pinty’s Series event to be held in the province. The five WMI drivers will take the green flag Saturday afternoon at Eastbound International Speedway in Avondale, Newfoundland for the Pro-Line 225 presented by QwickWick.
Coming off a victory in the last event driver Andrew Ranger will be looking to make it back-to-back wins. Rookie of the Year challenger Brandon Watson has finished in the top ten at each of the first three races including a podium finish in the season opener and sits sixth in the overall championship standings, just five points out of the lead. Mark Dilley, TJ Rinomato and newly inducted Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame member Glenn Styres will also be looking for more strong finishes this weekend.
WMI drivers will be exchanging information following the afternoon practice session to assist each other in learning the characteristics of the track and prepare for the 225-laps of racing later that day.
