Oh, Canada: Dominic Lussier Makes History with Autodrome Granby & Le RPM
Written by Andrew Reigel
SAINT HYACINTHE, QUEBEC – Oh, Canada!
For the first time in its decade-long history, the Bob Hilbert Sportswear Short Track Super Series (STSS) Fueled By Sunoco crosses the border into Canada during the 2023 season.
Promoter Dominic Lussier presents the inaugural STSS ‘Lumberjack Swing’ for the River Valley Builders North Region big-block/small-block Modifieds at his two Quebec-based venues: Autodrome Granby in Granby (Tuesday, July 25) and Le RPM Speedway in Saint-Marcel-de-Richelieu (Wednesday, July 26). A rain date for either event is set for Thursday (July 27).
$68,300 in purse money has been posted for the groundbreaking events, which will offer $10,000 to win minimum and $500 to take the green flag each night for 60 laps.
That’s just the start of making history.
Both Autodrome Granby and Le RPM will utilize American Racer tires for the ’23 campaign and have joined the American Racer Cup presented by Sunoco Race Fuels, providing racers in the Modified and Crate 602 Sportsman divisions will the opportunity to compete for more than $51,000-plus in additional point fund money and hundreds of tire giveaway certificates.
“We’re thrilled to bring the Short Track Super Series brand to Quebec in the series’ 10th anniversary season,” STSS founder Brett Deyo said. “Not only having Autodrome Granby and Le RPM as series events, but as part of the American Racer Cup family, strengthens our brand in a new territory.
“I look forward to working closely with Dominic (Lussier) and his staff well into the future.”
During the off-season, all four BD Motorsports Media LLC facilities – Delaware International Speedway and Georgetown Speedway in Delaware and Fonda Speedway and Utica-Rome Speedway in New York – joined Autodrome Granby and Le RPM as part of the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series, strengthening the relationship.
“We’re expecting to see some drivers cross the border and compete in search of NASCAR National points,” Deyo added. “It should produce even more excitement for fans watching our drivers compete on both sides of the border.”
