Do you remember the Allison CASCAR Challenge? Read more about it on my Cayuga Speedway page.

CASCAR
Canadian Association for Stock Car Racing

CASCAR has been the leading touring series in Canada since its' beginnings a decade ago. The cars look similar to the Winston Cup cars but are not nearly as expensive, or advanced. That is not to say they are low dollar, these guys have equipment as good as you would find at any Busch North or Winston West event.  

The series is divided into two divisions, National and West, that each crown their own Champion. A few Western Series drivers attempt the National Series as well but with the exception of KevinDowler the majority of serious contenders are from Ontario.

My father ran this series from it's inception as a low buck sportsman class in the early '80's until he retired in the early '90's.  I can personally attest to it being as good a show as any you could attend.
 


Three time National Series Champion Dave Whitlock

Three time CASCAR Castrol Super Series National Champion Dave Whitlock was the first back to back winner and the only driver to give Ford a CASCAR championship. 

Today the series is in a tough spot. The 2006 schedule was very late coming out and key tracks such as Delaware and Race City are missing. The hoped for success and excitement with NASCAR involvement has not materialized, with many feeling that perhaps their presence is hurting rather than helping. Major sponsorship is desperately needed before this series completely fractures and disappears.

Congratulations to the 2001,  2002, 2003,  2004  & 2005 CASCAR National Champion
