(June 8, 2023) One year ago Wight Motorsports Inc (WMI) scored the team’s first victory of the season with Andrew Ranger holding off the competition in a late restart at the Autodrome Chaudière in Vallée-Jonction, Quebec. This coming Saturday during round three of the 2023 NASCAR Pinty’s Series they’ll be looking for another win.
The victory last season was Ranger’s second at the track near Quebec City but that doesn’t mean the team is resting on the accomplishment. New cars were built for this year and the WMI staff has been working feverishly to prepare both the #27 for Ranger and the #0 for Glenn Styres.
The WMI team wanted to ensure that everything was performing as it should before the race this weekend and both drivers and cars turned laps in testing at the quarter mile track recently and showed plenty of speed. Following the meticulous preparation, the team is looking forward to positive results from both drivers.
