POSTPONED: Pinty’s to race Sunday

Bumper To Bumper 300 at Riverside washed out

Persistent inclement weather prompted NASCAR officials to postpone Saturday’s Bumper To Bumper 300 at Riverside International Speedway.

The NASCAR Pinty’s Series race will be held Sunday, Aug. 20 at 1 p.m. AT.

Weather had previously washed out qualifying Saturday afternoon. DJ Kennington, who posted the fastest time in practice, will start on the pole and Kevin Lacroix will join him on the front row.

The Bumper To Bumper 300 is the 10th of 13 races on the NASCAR Pinty’s Series schedule. The Bumper To Bumper 300 will air on TSN on Sunday, AUg. 27 at 1:30 p.m. ET, and on RDS on Friday, Sept. 15 at 7:30 p.m.

Following Sunday’s race, the series will return to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on Sunday, Sept. 3, for the Total Quartz 200.


QUALIFYING: Kennington To Start On Pole

Field Set Per Rulebook Because Of Weather At Riverside

DJ Kennington’s fast time in practice will mean he’ll start on the pole for Saturday night’s Bumper to Bumper 300 at Riverside International Speedway after weather washed out qualifying.

Because the series got in a practice session, the rule book dictates the starting lineup is set by practice speeds. That means Kennington, who has two previous wins at Riverside in 2010 and 2012, will lead the field to green.

Kevin Lacroix will lineup second. Championship points leader Alex Labbe and local favorite Donald Chisholm will make up the second row.

Defending race winner Cayden Lapcevich will start fifth.

Donald Theetge, Mark Dilley, LP Dumoulin, Adam Martin and Alex Tagliani round out the top 10.

Due to a rain delay the green flag for the Bumper to Bumper 300 will drop at 1 p.m on Sunday.
