August 2, 2022. After grabbing his first win of the season in Saskatoon, DJ Kennington and the #17 Castrol Edge Dodge team are in the thick of the championship battle as the 2022 NASCAR Pinty’s Series returns to the streets of Trois-Rivieres, Quebec and storied Grand Prix of Trois-Rivieres this Sunday, August 7th.

The Saskatoon victory and a sixth-place finish at the same track to wrap up the western portion of the schedule have Kennington sitting second overall, just a single point back of top spot.

While road and street courses are not where Kennington cut his teeth in racing, he’s more than held his own against the best in the business and expect him to be near the front of the field once again this weekend.

Kennington claimed victory at the historic event in the #17 Castrol Edge Dodge in 2013 after starting in eighth position. The St. Thomas, Ontario driver has also shown remarkable consistency at GP3R finishing in the top-ten in twelve of the fourteen races run previously.

Here’s what you need to know.
