In 2013, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returned to road course racing for the first time in 13 years at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, Ontario.

The exciting 64-lap contest was won by 17-year-old Chase Elliott of Dawsonville, GA, who became the youngest race winner in Series history. Chase, son of former NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Bill Elliott, was competing in only his sixth career Truck Series race.

Canadian Tire Motorsport Park is pleased to announce that the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series will be returning to the famous 3.957 km road course on Labour Weekend (August 31) with the Chevrolet Silverado 250.

"After a successful inaugural event this past Labour Day Weekend, we're thrilled to welcome back the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series," said Myles Brandt, President and General Manager of Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

"This season's inaugural Chevrolet Silverado 250 was an important milestone in Canadian racing history. We set out to create an unforgettable experience for fans, corporate partners as well as everyone associated with the Truck Series and I am confident we did so. All of us at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park are ready to make next year's even more successful."

"We're looking forward to returning to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park," said Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR's Sr. Vice President of Racing Operations.

"Our inaugural event this summer in front of a packed house of enthusiastic fans was one of the most exciting races of this season. Road-course racing on an international stage like CTMP is a thrill for our drivers. They're already circling the date on their 2014 calendars."
