Trois-Rivières, Québec – Negotiations for the partnership with WeatherTech Canada were ongoing since the crowning of Louis-Philippe Dumoulin as the 2014 Champion in the NASCAR Canadian Tire series on September 20th, 2014. Last weekend, during the celebrations of the NASCAR Night of Champions in Charlotte, North Carolina, it was with great enthusiasm that Tony Page, president of WeatherTech Canada, has announced an agreement was concluded for the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
“WeatherTech Canada is very proud of our association with Dumoulin Competition and LP Dumoulin. When we started discussing next season, we all felt it would make sense to extend the agreement for two seasons. With the paperwork out of the way, the race team can move forward to improve, as they will be looking to defend their title against a competitive and aggressive field in Canadian NASCAR”, share Tony Page and Joe Magri, coowners of WeatherTech Canada.
“After only three full seasons, we won the championship. WeatherTech Canada has been our major partner for three years, and we now sign this agreement for two additional years with them. It’s an incredible feeling that demonstrates the good performance of our logistics team at Dumoulin Compétition, as well as the fantastic work of our prep team, King Autosport. WeatherTech Canada has seen the entrepreneurial advantages in sponsoring the team and it’s a win-win situation for both parties. It’s up to us to demonstrate once again that it was the right decision,” explains the enthused driver of the #47 Dodge WeatherTech Canada / Bellemare Group.
Celebrations of the NASCAR 2014 Champions (Charlotte, North Carolina, United States – Dec. 10-13)
Last week was punctuated by multiple events, notably occurring at the NASCAR Hall of Fame (www.nascarhall.com), during which the Quebecer was welcomed as a Champion. The celebrations have also given way to the awarding of multiple trophies, the most prestigious of which were awarded to Louis-Philippe Dumoulin:
· Becomes the first Trifluvian to see his name immortalized in the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Where the name of all series Legends have been written since 1948.
Wins the Dodge Trophy awarded to the “Best performing driver”
Wins the Mobil 1 Trophy awarded to the “Driver of the Year”
WeatherTech Canada wins the “Partners Trophy”
“What an honor it is for me to unveil my name in the NASCAR Hall of Fame, right beside my idols that have marked the past. It was fantastic to receive these awards, and I’m especially proud for all the people that collaborated with us for the past several years, because as we’ve said multiple times, it’s a team championship, we’ve done this together,” explains the driver of the only all-Quebecer team to ever win a championship in the NASCAR Canadian Tire series.
Winning the championship in the NASCAR Canadian Tire series is yet another door opened towards the future, and the possibilities are numerous. “We will not rest on our laurels because we now have a championship in hand and have signed a two-year deal. Our main objective is to defend our title in 2015 and 2016 with even more consistency and performance than during the 2014 season, and we wish to continue with our collaboration with King Autosport, the team directed by Martin Roy and crew chief Mario Gosselin. Discussions to take part in certain events on road circuits in the NASCAR Xfiniti series [ex-Nationwide] are also underway,” mentions a determined Louis-Philippe Dumoulin.
