NASCAR announces the Pinty Series schedule for the historic 2023 season

DAYTONA BEACH, FL (January 17, 2023) – Building on one of the most successful seasons in NASCAR Pinty Series history, NASCAR today announced the 2023 schedule, which includes a record 14 races across Canada.

With the success of last year’s first dirt race at Ohsweken Speedway, the track will return to the schedule as a doubleheader event on Monday, August 14th and Tuesday, August 15th.

In addition, the teams will be making the trip back to Newfoundland and Labrador for another exciting event at Eastbound International Speedway.

In all, the series will visit 11 different tracks in five provinces.

“The NASCAR Benitez Series has offered great racing and exciting events across Canada for 16 years and next season will be our best season yet,” said NASCAR Canada General Manager Tony Spitteri. “The past year was an overwhelming success for everyone associated with the Pinty’s Series with increased interest from fans, competitors and potential partners. The 2023 schedule will continue to deliver exciting side-by-side races that define NASCAR and the Pinty’s Series.”

The season begins at Sunset Speedway (May 13) for the fourth year in a row and ends at Delaware Speedway (September 24) where Marc-Antoine Camerin capped a memorable season with his first NASCAR Pinty’s Series championship this past September.

The series will once again boast the most diverse schedule in NASCAR with seven short track oval races, five road/street races and two dirt track races.

In 2023, the series will also celebrate its 200th race at Ohsweken Speedway with a Race Date Tuesday start.
