Kyle Busch to Take on Autodrome Chaudiere in August (PASS)
Vallee-Jonction, QC (Feb. 11, 2013) – Autodrome Chaudiere 2012 Inc. is proud to announce that Kyle “Rowdy” Busch will be entering the second leg of the PASS La Quebecoise Triple Crown at Autodrome Chaudière in Vallee-Jonction Quebec on Tuesday, August 6th, 2013. This race will be the second race of the prestigious PASS La Quebecoise Triple Crown at the famed highbank ¼ mile. Busch will be participating in the event, which will undoubtedly be the biggest short track event in the history of the province of Québec, in his #51 Kyle Busch Motorsports Super-Late Model Camry.
Kyle Busch is considered by many to be the best raw talent on the Sprint Cup circuit. Known for his intensity and will to win, Busch is a force to reckon with and a threat to win every Sunday afternoon. His record speaks for itself; 24 Sprint Cup series wins, 51 Nationwide series wins, 30 Camping World truck series wins, along with a Nationwide series championship. These 105 careers wins across the three NASCAR national circuits puts him 3rd on the all-time win list behind Richard Petty (200) and David Pearson (106). Along with these impressive numbers, Rowdy’s resume is stacked with incredible accomplishments such as The Bristol Sweep where he swept all three national series races in the same weekend at the Bristol Motor Speedway. Kyle Busch’s passion for racing is so great that he races Super-Late models during his off weekends and spare time. Busch loves to fend off against the best short track drivers in North America and holds wins in many prestigious Super-Late model races such as the Snowball Derby, The Slinger Nationals and the Winchester 400.
“My favorite type of vehicles to race have always been the Super-Late Models — they look cool, are fun to drive, and when you put them on a ¼ mile track like Autodrome Chaudiere it always makes for an exciting race,” Busch said. “I try to make it to about five of the more prestigious races around my NASCAR schedule every season — we run two or three staples for us and then we try to find a couple of new venues to visit. The Canadian fans really support their racing and I know that the new track owners are working hard to make this a big event. I’m really looking forward to my trip to Quebec in August.”
The new Owners of Autodrome Chaudiere, Dany Lagacé and Kevin Roberge, are thrilled to have a great star like Kyle Busch at their short track. “When we bought the racetrack this summer Dany and I had a bucket list and I will let you guess what was number one on the list,” Autodrome Chaudiere Vice-President Kevin Roberge said. “To be able to announce today that Kyle Busch will be rolling onto our racetrack in August is an honor and a dream come true.” When discussing the coming of NASCAR star Kyle Busch Dany Lagacé, president of Autodrome Chaudiere, is categorical, “I’ve always said that I want Autodrome Chaudiere to be known as one of the greatest short tracks and having Kyle Busch roll onto the highbank in August will elevate it to the ranks of the greatest.”
The race will be held on Tuesday, August 6th, 2013 with a rain date scheduled for Wednesday, August 7th, 2013. Also, an open practice will be held on Monday, August 5th, 2013 for all PASS competitors. The complete event schedule will be announced in the next few months and will include an autograph session and many more activities.
