builder Robert Yates to the CME|0
For the second year in a row, racing fans in attendance at the Canadian Motorsports Expo will be able to get a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the workings of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series. The CME runs February 10, 11 and 12 at Toronto's International Centre.
The centrepiece of the NASCAR display will be the massive race hauler that serves as the centre of activity for every NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race. Series Director Brad Moran and his team of NASCAR officials will be on hand throughout the entire show, offering hauler tours and real-time access to a NASCAR 'tech lane' and working garage.
The NASCAR display will also feature several Canadian Tire Series race cars and technical displays, including the NASCAR-approved Spec Engine. On Saturday, February 11, legendary NASCAR team owner and engine builder Robert Yates (right) will be at the NASCAR display, meeting with fans and signing autographs. Yates and his Robert Yates Racing Engines partner Chris Davy, will also be available to current and prospective NASCAR Canadian Tire Series racers and teams to discuss their motors. RYR Racing Engines is the exclusive provider of the NASCAR-approved Spec Engine, which is an optional program currently in use in all NASCAR touring series in the U.S. and Canada, including the Canadian Tire Series.
And on Saturday afternoon (6:15 - 7:00 p.m.), Yates will take to the Mazda Stage to discuss his career in motorsports, which has spanned more than four decades, racing with and against some of the biggest names in the racing.
The Canadian Motorsports Expo Powered by Inside Track will also prominently feature several current NASCAR Canadian Tire Series drivers, who will be participating in an on-stage Fan Q&A and Autograph Session, on Sunday afternoon (1:45 - 2:45 p.m.).
"We're very pleased that the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series is back at the Canadian Motorsports Expo," said Series Director Brad Moran. "While many fans see our races at the track and on TSN, this show, however, offers a unique opportunity to see what goes on in the pits and in 'tech lane' on race weekends. This level of fan access isn't possible when we're in the heat of an actual race event, so we enjoy offering some hauler tours and an up close look at all that goes on."
