Photo by NASCARAfter a long and harsh winter, Canada's top stock car championship, the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series is set to open their 2011 campaign with one of the most challenging tracks on their schedule, as they take on Canada’s fastest half-mile paved oval for the Dickies 200, May 28.

Defending Series Champion D.J. Kennington of St. Thomas will be looking to defend his title with a season-opening victory. Driving the #17 Castrol Edge Dodge Challenger, Kennington is no stranger to success on oval tracks, having all five of his victories in 2010 take place there.

Standing in Kennington’s way will be 2010 Dickies 200 winner and five-time national champion Don Thomson Jr., 2008 Series champion Scott Steckly, Mark Dilley and Kerry Micks, who won at Mosport Speedway in 2008. Young guns such as Jason Hathaway, Durham’s own Joey McColm and Pete Shepherd III and Series newcomers Isabelle Tremblay and Pete Vanderwyst will all look to make their mark on the 2011 season.

Dickies Canada, known for guaranteed work wear since 1922, has launched their all new, online Race to Win Challenge.  It’s the fun and easy way to enjoy the excitement of NASCAR Canadian Tire Series racing all summer long.
