“We’re delighted to have this association with 22 Racing and NASCAR”, said Chris Hebb, senior vice president, broadcast and content, Leafs TV and Raptors NBA TV. “Many of our viewers are also fans of NASCAR and this initiative ties in perfectly with our goal of extending our brand and awareness outside of the traditional means”.
“We are very proud to be associated with Leafs TV. The Canadian NASCAR circuit looks to sporting legends, such as the Maple Leafs, for inspiration – in both their contribution to sports and also the dedication of their fans”, said Randy Steckly, general manager of the 22 Racing team.
The three races are scheduled as follows:- Saturday, September 1 at Cayuga Speedway in Hamilton; - Saturday, September 8 at Barrie Speedway in Barrie; - Sunday, September 23 at Kawartha Speedway in Peterborough.
