Wayne Smith of Timberlea will make his NASCAR Canadian Tire Series debut at Riverside International Speedway near Antigonish on Sept. 18.

The five-time Maritime touring series champion will run as a teammate to part-time Canadian Tire Series driver Donald Chisholm of Antigonish in the Komatsu 300.

“I’ve gone to watch the event since they started, but really didn’t imagine the day would come that I would be in one of them,” Smith said in a press release.

Smith is currently third in the Carquest Pro Stock Tour’s points standings, three points ahead of Chisholm.
