Jean-François Dumoulin is determined to perform

NASCAR Pinty’s series 3rd event, CRS Express 300

2017-05-21-3441Adding up the talent of Jean-François Dumoulin and the expertise of crew chief Robin McCluskey is without a doubt a winning combination for a strong performance on the oval track of Autodrome Chaudière (Friday, June 23, Vallée-Jonction, Québec).

The elder Dumoulin brother is currently holding the fifth place in the drivers’ championship, and the #04 Spectra Premium / Bernier Crépeau / Bellemare Group / MIA team is ready to reach new heights. During its first attempt on this circuit in 2015 having the mere goal of finishing the race, the #04 Spectra Premium / Bernier Crépeau / Bellemare Group / MIA team is now raising the stakes and hoping to rack up points for the championship, above all else.

“We’re excited to hit the track again. The trials at Autodrome Chaudière went well. Every lap we complete on oval track is a new occasion to perfect my driving, and I’m confident I can adapt quickly. The important thing is to race smart”, explains the driver of the #04 Spectra Premium / Bernier Crépeau/ Bellemare Group / MIA car.

“CRS Trucking 300”: mandatory pit stop halfway through Much like the Riverside International Speedway track (Antigonish, Nouvelle-Écosse, 10th event- August 19, 2017), which is considered a near-replica of the famous Bristol Motor Speedway (Bristol, Tennessee, USA), the Autodrome Chaudière is nicknamed “Le petit Bristol Québécois” (the little Bristol of Quebec). This asphalted oval track (a quarter mile) is also the most steeply inclined in Quebec. The pits are located outside the track, requiring a full stop of the race planned by the series at approximately the 150th lap. The drivers are also authorized to make pit stops at any point during the race; however, it’s an extra challenge as all teams will need to make a simultaneous pit stop for fuel replenishment and the tire change. The cars will then get back into place for the race’s second start.

See you at Autodrome Chaudière this weekend!
