Autodrome St. Eustache and NASCAR recently announced the track will join the series in 2014. The .4-mile oval will crown NASCAR track champions and Division I competitors at the track will contend for the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Quebec championship.

“We’re very pleased to be back under the NASCAR umbrella,” said Alan Labrosse, track owner and president. “Our drivers, teams and sponsors are extremely pleased to be part of the official NASCAR Home Track of Quebec.”

The Sportsman class will be NASCAR Division I in which Jean-Francois Bouvrette claimed the 2013 track championship. Sports-Compact cars are set for NASCAR Division II that had Patrick Boucher as the champion in 2013. Stephan Aubin is the defending champion of the Mini Legends that will be NASCAR Division III.

The track will race on Saturday nights from May through September with the 2014 season opener scheduled for May 24.

“We’re delighted to renew and expand our relationship with Alan Labrosse and Autodrome St. Eustache,” said Kevin Nevalainen, NASCAR senior manager, weekly racing operations. “Autodrome St. Eustache has a passionate group of fans and participants. They’ll add strength to the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series’ presence in Canada.”

Autodrome St. Eustache returns to the series after a three-year hiatus and a NASCAR championship will be decided on the .4-mile oval. The speedway was part of the Whelen All-American Series from 2004 to 2010. It also hosted the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series 2008-10 and Canada’s top racing series returned to action there in 2013.
