Avid NASCAR fans in Canada who go as far as having the sport's logo on their mud flapsand custom fit floor mats might be disappointed to know that Montreal is no longer on the 2013 Nationwide schedule.
According to The Associated Press, NASCAR recently scratched the Circuit Gilles Villeneueve in Montreal next season off its list, which ended a six-year run for the Nationwide Series.
The decision was announced by promoter Francois Dumontier, citing an end of the agreement that has been in operation on a year-to-year basis. NASCAR reported that the sport wanted to return to Montreal, but the two sides couldn't work out an agreement on Dumontier's promotion group.
NASCAR released a statement saying that the sport hopes to still be racing in Canada next season, which could be made possible with the Truck Series.
One lucky fan will be given the chance to win a grand prize package that includes a 2013 Ford F-150 FX4 truck, round trip for two to Las Vegas and a two night stay at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino from NASCAR. The sport is also offering VIP tickets to NASCAR After The Lap, which is sponsored by Coca-Cola.
