“My favorite type of vehicles to race have always been the super-late-models – they look cool, are fun to drive, and when you put them on a quarter-mile track like Autodrome Chaudiere it always makes for an exciting race,” Busch said. “I try to make it to about five of the more prestigious races around my NASCAR schedule every season. We run two or three staples for us and then we try to find a couple of new venues to visit. The Canadian fans really support their racing and I know that the new track owners are working hard to make this a big event. I’m really looking forward to my trip to Quebec in August.”
The new Owners of Autodrome Chaudiere, Dany Lagacé and Kevin Roberge, are thrilled to have a great star like Kyle Busch at their short track.
