Cadillac Confirms Daytona Prototype international to Debut in 2017

“Cadillac is proud to return to the pinnacle of prototype racing in North America after a 14-year absence.”

Those were the words used by Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen to confirm that three Cadillac Daytona Prototype international (DPi) race cars will compete in the full 2017 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Prototype (P) class, beginning with the 55th Rolex 24 At Daytona on Jan. 28-29, 2017. The new car will be known as the Cadillac DPi-V.R and is the first prototype race car from the New York-headquartered manufacturer since 2002.

“It is not possible to overstate how thrilled all of us at IMSA are to officially welcome Cadillac, one of the world’s most respected premium automotive brands, back to Prototype racing in the WeatherTech Championship,” said IMSA President Scott Atherton. “This is exactly the type of program we had in mind when we announced the Daytona Prototype international concept last year.

“As we open a new era of Prototype competition in 2017, we now have three benchmark examples of manufacturers using this platform to showcase their impressive and unique technology at the highest level. We cannot wait to get the new era underway in just a few short weeks at Daytona.”

The manufacturer confirmed that Action Express Racing and Wayne Taylor Racing each will field Cadillac DPi-V.R machines next season. Action Express, which has won the last three WeatherTech Championship Prototype titles, will have a pair of Cadillacs, while the Wayne Taylor Racing team continues its longstanding relationship with General Motors through a one-car effort.

“Cadillac’s V-Performance production models — the ATS-V and CTS-V — are transforming our brand’s product substance, earning a place among the world’s elite high performance marques,” de Nysschen said. “The Cadillac DPi-V.R further strengthens our V-Performance portfolio, placing Cadillac into the highest series of sports car racing in North America.”

The Cadillac DPi-V.R will be powered by a normally aspirated, 6.2-liter Cadillac V-8 engine, which shares inherent architecture with engines that power the third-generation Cadillac CTS-V and fifth-generation Cadillac Escalade production vehicles. The chassis for the Cadillac DPi-V.R was designed in cooperation with Dallara with styling cues inspired by Cadillac’s current line of V-Performance high-performance production models, specifically the Cadillac CTS-V.

“The DPi-V.R race car was an exciting new canvas for the Cadillac design and sculpting team,” said Andrew Smith, Global Cadillac Design executive director. “The studio embraced the opportunity to interpret the Cadillac form language, line work and graphic signature for this premier prototype racing application. Every detail of the final design was selected to support the car’s on-track performance and unmistakable Cadillac presence.”

The new Cadillac DPi-V.R will make its public on-track debut during a two-day IMSA-sanctioned test at Daytona International Speedway on Dec. 13-14.

Cadillac joins Mazda and Nissan as confirmed DPi manufacturers for IMSA’s top Prototype class, which also will include international LM P2 prototype chassis from Riley/Multimatic, Ligier, ORECA and Dallara, powered by single-specification Gibson V8 engines.

The IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship makes its only Canadian stop on July 6-9 with the Mobil 1 SportsCar Grand Prix.

John Nemechek thrilled the huge crowd on hand at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, winning the fourth annual Chevrolet Silverado 250.

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Produces Future NASCAR Stars

NEWTON, IA - JUNE 18: William Byron, driver of the #9 Liberty University Toyota, celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Speediatrics 200 at Iowa Speedway on June 18, 2016 in Newton, Iowa. (Photo by Rainier Ehrhardt/NASCAR via Getty Images)

By the time a racer reaches the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, his career has already been under way for many years. But it’s in this first rung of the NASCAR national touring series ladder where each promising talent will learn whether his dreams of greatness have a true shot at becoming reality.

More than 20 drivers have regularly thrown their hats into the Truck Series ring this season, but only a handful will ever move up into the second-tier NASCAR XFINITY Series or the pinnacle of stock car racing, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Here are some of the most promising hopefuls competing full-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2016.

RICO ABREU
St. Helena, California
No. 98 ThorSport Racing Toyota Tundra
When he first arrived in the sport, the fact that Rico Abreu was born with achondroplasia, a common cause of dwarfism, was considered a defining trait. These days, the 24-year-old is more often discussed for his rapidly accumulating list of achievements. After winning the Chili Bowl in January 2015, Abreu found victory in K&N Pro Series East in the same year before getting his shot in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series where he competes full-time today.

WILLIAM BYRON
Charlotte, North Carolina
No. 9 Liberty University/Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota Tundra
2015 K&N Pro Series East champion William Byron is already making waves in his rookie season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series by breaking win records and remaining consistently near or at the top of the point standings. The 18-year-old won the K&N East title in his rookie season and could well repeat the feat in NCWTS in 2016.

COLE CUSTER
Ladera Ranch, California
No. 00 JR Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado
Cole Custer also comes from a racing family, though his background isn’t as well-known: his father, Joe Custer, is currently Chief Operating Officer of Haas F1. At 18 years old, Custer has made the most of the opportunities he’s been given, scoring wins in part-time programs in ARCA and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in recent years. He’s getting his first full-time shot at NCWTS this year while also dabbling occasionally in NASCAR XFINITY Series competition.

CAMERON HAYLEY
Calgary, Alberta
No. 13 Cabinets by Hayley/ThorSport Racing Toyota Tundra
Cameron Hayley is currently Canada’s torch-bearer as the only driver regularly competing in any NASCAR national touring series who hails from north of the border. Though the 20-year-old is still searching for his first NCWTS win, Hayley is regularly tipped as a very promising young talent who is working magic with less-than-peak equipment.

JOHN HUNTER NEMECHEK
Mooresville, North Carolina
No. 8 NEMCO Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado
John Hunter Nemechek was unquestionably born into a racing family. The 19-year-old son of long-time NASCAR competitor Joe Nemechek competes full-time for the family team, NEMCO Motorsports, in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. He claimed his first series win at Chicagoland Speedway in 2015, the same year in which he was named NCWTS most popular driver.

NASCAR’s Up-And-Coming Canadian Is Knocking On The Door Of Superstardom

Cameron Hayley is currently the only Canadian racing full time in any NASCAR national touring series. The 20-year-old from Calgary will be the man of the hour when his No. 13 Cabinets by Hayley/ThorSport Racing Toyota Tundra rolls off with the rest of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series field for the Chevrolet Silverado 250 at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

One of the most notable aspects of Hayley’s career so far is that he doesn’t have the big name of a racing family to rocket him forward as has worked for so many of his peers. He started in go-karts at age four and was racing them by age seven, then began competing in stock cars at the age of 10 – all thanks to his own passion.

“I didn’t have any family or relatives that were in the sport, so I was the first one ever to get into racing and I fell in love with it,” Hayley says. “Now, to get to the level where I’m at, I sit here and think wow, I’m one of the only Canadians to ever get this far and do this well.”

NASCAR experts have had their eye on Hayley for many years. Not long after he made his debut in the K&N Pro Series West in 2011 as the youngest driver ever to start a race at 15 years of age, he was admitted to the NASCAR Next class of 2012.

From there, his results kept improving. He went on to win the UNOH Battle at the Beach East vs. West Shootout at Daytona International Speedway in 2013, and he finished second in points in K&N Pro Series East the following year. That 2014 season also saw Hayley race in three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events, including the Chevrolet Silverado 250, where he finished with a strong 11th-place result.

That led to a full-season ride in the NASCAR Truck Series last year with ThorSport. And despite not always having best-in-class equipment, Hayley and his crew chief Eddie Troconis have been knocking on the door of that first win for the better part of this season.

“This is my second full year in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and I’m still learning a ton,” Hayley says. “I don’t think even Jeff Gordon can tell you he’s learned everything he needs to, so every year I keep learning more and more.”

Racers are well-known for their superstitions and rituals, but Hayley says that’s one stereotype he doesn’t fit into.

“I can’t really be superstitious being that I have the number 13 on my truck,” he says with a laugh. “I more just like to try and calm down. I’ve always been the driver who gets really nervous before a race. One of the guys who used to crew chief me told me that if you’re not feeling nervous before a race, you’re not caring. So, I see being nervous as a good thing.

“I mostly like to calm down before a race, lay in the hauler and quiet my thoughts. As soon as I go out and buckle into that truck and start the engine, it all goes away.”
However, a fitness and diet regimen are essential for success at this level of motorsport. In that regard, Hayley has a routine.

“Eating healthy is a big part of it, and staying hydrated,” he explains. “It gets very, very hot in our trucks, and we lose at some races close to 10 pounds in water. So, staying hydrated is really a big thing week to week.

“During the season you don’t have a lot of time to do a lot of hard fitness. It’s more just maintenance work. In the off-season is when we really sit down to try and build on what we need to do to get better.”

Hayley has a plan for his career as well, though he admits that’s one thing he can only plan so far in advance.

“Hopefully next year I can make it to the NASCAR XFINITY Series,” he says. “I think I’m ready to move up and learn in that series, so that would be my next goal.”

“Into the future, I couldn’t really tell you when it might happen, but my dream has always been to become a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion. Hopefully I can get there one day.”

Right now, though, he’s preparing to take his third NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. The impact of racing in front of the only Canadian crowd he’ll see all season is in no way lost on him.

“It’s a huge deal,” Hayley says. “I’ve always loved road course racing and I’ve always been good at it. Going to Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and for the only home country race of mine, I see as an opportunity to go out and win, and I think I have the capabilities to do that.

“Now I don’t just have Calgary supporting me, I have all of Canada behind me. That’s a really cool feeling.”

Szoke Completes Perfect Superbike Season At Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

Brantford native Jordan Szoke capped off his championship season with an impressive win after a back-and-forth battle with Italian star rider Claudio Corti. Rookie of the year Ben Young of Collingwood finished third.

With victory in the shortened season finale, the 37-year-old completed a perfect season of seven wins from seven races aboard his Mopar Express Lane BMW Motorrad S1000RR for the second straight season. Szoke is the only rider to sweep all races in a Canadian Superbike Championship season in its history. He also managed the feat in 2010.

“This is awesome. It is such an honour to have a rider like Claudio here and to battle with him,” said Szoke of his rival, who has competed in MotoGP and World Superbike events in his career.

“It feels good to be able to defend our territory and say, ‘this is our house.’”

Mitch Card was victorious in the Liqui Moly Pro Sport Bike race aboard his Yamaha YZF-R6. Kenny Riedmann finished second, securing the championship in the process, his third consecutive. Peterborough’s Tomas was third.

Szoke Wins Race And Superbike Championship At Canadian Tire Motorsport Park

Brantford native Jordan Szoke continued to write the history books as he captured his 58th career Superbike win as well as securing his record 11th championship at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on Saturday, August 20.

Szoke, aboard his BMW S1000RR, battled back-and-forth over the 20-lap race with Italian star Claudio Corti and Belfountain rider Kenny Reidmann, eventually making the pass for the win at the line. The margin of victory was just 0.046.

“Out of all of my race wins I honestly think this one means the most,” said Szoke after scoring his 13th straight Mopar CSBK win. “It was exciting all the way and there was so much going on. People ask me why I keep winning all the races, but I can tell you it’s not easy out there. I was just able to get these guys at the line.”

The Superbike Doubleheader Weekend concludes on Sunday with races in all five classes and remaining championships being decided.
