Louis-Philippe Dumoulin aims for a Top 5 at the only 2024 dirt race of the NASCAR Canada series

Trois-Rivières (Quebec), July 8, 2024.- Only ten days after the end of the races in the Maritime Provinces and less than two weeks before a new tripleheader in the West, the NASCAR Canada series presents this Thursday evening the only dirt race of the 2024 season, on the oval track of Ohsweken Speedway in Ontario.

A very special event, prepared with a mixture of discovery and optimism by the series’ triple champion Louis-Philippe Dumoulin. At the wheel of car #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare | Omnifab, Dumoulin will try to repeat, and even do better, the Top 6 clinched last year.

Basically, the cars in the NASCAR Canada series are not designed to compete on dirt. Adapting them to this surface therefore constitutes a challenge for the drivers and their teams. If the technical structure of Dumoulin Compétition had succeeded in its bet last year, Louis-Philippe knows that anything can happen on this type of surface. “I really admire racing on dirt. It’s a fantastic show to watch, especially with the vehicles specifically built for this type of racing. With our NASCAR Canada cars, it’s more difficult to perform as well as we would like, but I will take part of this event with the desire to take advantage of the slightest situation to gain positions and offer a good result to our team #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare | Omnifab” adds the driver.

Louis-Philippe Dumoulin has currently four Top 5 finishes in five races contested this season, which places him fourth in the championship standings, in the contenders for the title. “The important thing will be to score big points at Ohsweken to remain among the leaders in the championship before the Western events and then the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières” mentions the driver, who adds: “Last year , I fought with DJ Kennington to get a Top 5 after gaining ten places from my starting position. It’s an excellent memory and it pushes me to be confident for the race this Thursday evening.”

This will be the third year that the NASCAR Canada series will present a race at the Ohsweken track. Drivers will have only thirty minutes of free practice before starting the qualifying rounds. The start of the grand final will be given around 7:30 p.m. “This sixth event of the season is a great challenge in terms of setting up the car and adapting to a surface used only once a year. Some drivers in the series are much more experienced than me on dirt but, considering our good results last year at this track and since the start of the season, I think we can do very well at Ohsweken” concludes the driver of car #47 WeatherTech Canada | Groupe Bellemare | Omnifab.
