McColm making NASCAR season debut at Mosport road course this weekend; Ajax driver anxious to return to competition
June 22, AJAX, ON Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Joey McColm returns to the race track this weekend when the popular Ajax racer competes in the Vortex Brake Pads 200 at Mosport International Raceway near Bowmanville, Ontario.
After competing in the entire NASCAR Canadian Tire Series in 2010 McColm sat out the first three events this season to regroup and develop new partnerships.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been anxiously awaiting this weekend,Ã¢â‚¬Â said McColm. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have Race Time Radio on board as our primary sponsor, and we plan to stay busy the rest of the season.Ã¢â‚¬Â
McColmÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s limited schedule includes road course events this weekend at Mosport along with the Toronto and Montreal events later in the season. He will also compete on the oval tracks at Barrie Speedway and Kawartha Speedway later this summer.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t limited to just those races,Ã¢â‚¬Â said McColm. Ã¢â‚¬Å“But thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the schedule we know we can commit to. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m actively seeking sponsorship to help us run more events.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The Civil Engineering graduate from Ryerson University recently announced a partnership with Earth Day Canada. The environmentally conscious racer has lofty but attainable goals.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re committed to becoming NASCAR CanadaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first and only sustainable organization,Ã¢â‚¬Â said McColm. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are workingon programs that will help fans, competitors, and facilities become more educated about sustainability.Ã¢â‚¬Â
A more relaxed schedule has allowed McColm to undertake school presentations focused on the importance of environmental responsibility, and he recently participated in the Green Living show.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I plan to return to a full racing schedule as soon as possible, but in the meantime IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been proud to be involved with Earth Day Canada.Ã¢â‚¬Â
