Saint-Eustache, August 11, 2021 – The streets of Trois-Rivières hold no secrets for Kevin Lacroix, who has made five appearances at the GP3R since his NASCAR Pinty’s debut in 2015. He is one again thrilled to be participating in the 60-lap race on the 2.46 km urban track this weekend.
He had won the 2015 and 2016 editions before accumulating bad lucks in 2017 and 2018. Lacroix could have won the last GP3R event in 2019 (the 2020 event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic) but finished in 4th place, a step away from the podium.
Lacroix is looking to win once again in his #74 Bumper to Bumper / Lacroix Tuning Dodge. “We’ve done some testing, and I have a very fast car,” said Kevin. “I know the GP3R track like the back of my hand, so I’m confident that this event will go better than the first one at Sunset Speedway.
Lacroix was unlucky at Sunset Speedway two weeks ago as he did not finish the second race of the night due to a mechanical failure. However, he plans to make up for it at the Trois-Rivieres Grand Prix in front of the Bumper to Bumper guests in the stands.
“I’m glad to see the fans back at GP3R; it’s always a fun and festive atmosphere.” While things may not be back to normal yet, fans can opt to watch the race live on RDS on Sunday, August 15 at 2:18 p.m.
The 60-lap Grand Prix of Trois-Rivières will be broadcast on TSN on Sunday, August 22 at 1:00 pm.
