WEDNESDAY SEPT. 20, 2017: The grand finale of the 2017 NASCAR Pinty’s Series season is set to take place this weekend at the newly reconfigured and updated Jukasa Motor Speedway (formerly Cayuga Speedway). The Pinty’s Fall Brawl will take place Saturday Sept. 23rd and will wind up what has been an exciting season.
The #18 EpiPen/Lowes/St.Huberts entry of Alex Tagliani has posted one win, five top-fives and nine top-tens, with 160 laps led through the first twelve events. He currently ranks 6th in the National Championship driver standings. Tagliani is looking for a strong finish to the 2017 season. “Just got home from China where we had a great weekend so missed the test session at Jukasa,” said Tagliani. “Looking forward now to be back in the car for the Pinty’s Series finale – obviously a new track and it looks great on the map. The team did some testing and I have been in touch with Scott and the guys since then. They feel confident that the test was productive so I am excited for the last round of the year. We have had a pretty good year – made some progress on the road courses and won a race I have always wanted to win at GP3R. Looking forward to seeing our team back in action this weekend with a good result.”
Donald Theetge driving the #22 Circuit Acura/Mercedes Benz St-Nicolas Dodge will finish off the season in his 8th start for 22 Racing. He has amassed one pole, 2 podiums, five top-fives, seven top-tens and 214 laps led this season. “With the test we did last week I think we are going to have an excellent car,” stated Donald Theetge. “Scott’s team always give me a competitive car since the beginning of the year so should be the same here. This track is very fast so it will be important to keep our momentum and stay with the lead pack all day. Should be a great race.”
The Pinty’s Fall Brawl will take place on Saturday Sept.23rd with spectator gates opening at 11:30 a.m. Visit their website for ticket and more schedule information at www.jukasamotorspeedway.com
