Will Denny Hamlin beat the elite PASS drivers?
It is this Saturday, June 20 that the Habitation Dany Lagacé 150 program will take place at the Autodrome Chaudière de Vallée-Jonction, bringing together the best pilots of the PASS Series who have come to fight with Nascar star # 11 Denny Hamlin.
For this occasion, we are expecting more than twenty PASS cars in addition to the 26 drivers of the Sportsman Quebec Lucas Oil Series who have already confirmed their attendance. The Mini Sportsman series and our local classes will also complete the program, and we can see an increase from program to program.
Denny Hamlin at Vallée-Jonction
Regarded by his peers and the media every year as a serious contender to win the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship, the # 11 Denny Hamlin who will ride in the colors of his sponsor Fedex will be in Dale Shaw’s rental car. As team leader he will be able to count on Michael Lavoie, former owner of the car who also worked for Dale Shaw in the past. An excellent choice that could allow him to achieve an excellent performance.
In addition to the prestigious Nascar driver, the very expected # 91 Patrick Laperle who for this evening will be sponsored by Habitation Dany Lagacé. Several fans were waiting for Laperle to return to the Vallée-Jonction oval. We can bet that the pilot will meet the expectations of the spectators who will have come for him.
This will also be the opportunity to see the young driver on the track # 71 Raphael Lessard who has surprised many in his presence last May by finishing first in the qualifying session and 6 th to the end of the race. Having definitely a natural talent for piloting, will he be able to pick up where he left off in his last presence?
Regarding the Sportsman Qc Lucas Oil series, the first event was able to show us that several drivers this year will defend their position for the 2015 champion title. During the first program of the season, we were able to see solid performances # 16 Rock Poulin who took the win; and # 17 Jimmy Nadeau, veteran of the series with the most races completed. The # 7 Réjean Blanchet has only one goal in mind; stand on the podium. Is it this Saturday that it will happen?
More and more Amateur and Elite Sport Compact pilots
During the second program, we noticed an increase in pilots for these two classes sponsored mainly by Oricom Internet. Attracting more and more pilots, the competition tightens and it can be seen that the pilots, in particular in the Elite class, are ready to do anything to gain positions. Will # 75 Steve Godbout keep up the pace ahead of Martin Bisson (26), Pascal Turgeon (98) or Julien Bernier (43) who is fighting a hot fight?
