Pont-Rouge Super Tour weekend canceled due to legal constraints

Unfortunately, track promoter Jacques Lebel and the Bracket Super Tour organization are obliged to cancel the racing weekend scheduled on June 2nd and 3rd at Pont-Rouge Dragway.

”Due to legal constraints and to not undermine the tranquility of the residents from the City of Pont-Rouge, we are forced to postpone the Super Tour drag racing event scheduled on June 2nd and 3rd to a later date” says promoter Lebel joined on the phone earlier today.

“This race was eagerly awaited by a lot of racers who planned to make the trip to Quebec City and participate in their first event at the famous Pont-Rouge track. We are extremely disappointed to have to cancel this event, but the situation is out of our control, ” explains Fred Angers, Super Tour event director.

Even if the legal conflict could be settled during the season, the Super Tour Pont-Rouge will be canceled because of schedule constraints that will not allow to present the event at a later date.

The organizers of the Bracket Super Tour react to the situation by modifying the National Championship Points Races schedule. The 2018 championship will count 7 rounds with the addition of the Saturday’s race at Bracket Finals which will be compiled.

The 2018 Super Tour will be:

June 16-17 Napierville Dragway

August 4-5 Luskville Dragway

September 1-2 Luskville Dragway

September 22 ICAR Mirabel (September 23 out of championship)

Due to the cancellation, Napierville Dragway’s Brunet family steps up and offer a 2,000$ to win guarantee payout on Saturday, June 2 for the Super Pro category. Sunday is a special Honda Day, but racers interested in participating in a Quick 16 must call Ronald Brunet at 450-245-7574.

More details on the changes that the conflict brings to Pont-Rouge Dragway will be available on the track’s Facebook page soon.
