@NASCAR • @hondaindy •#NASCARPintysSeries •@ChryslerCanada •@CBRTinc •(July 13, 2016)- Stemming back to his childhood years at the legendary Mosport International Raceway (now Canadian Tire Motorsport Park) and racing in go-karts, Robin Buck has been a lifelong fan of racing.

The Campbellville, ON native has spent his years honing his race craft and has a history of dominating the circuits in his Canadian backyard.

Now racing in the NASCAR Pinty’s Series, Buck has proven that he knows his way around road courses after placing second in the 2016 season opener at his childhood stomping grounds: Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

Another Canadian course with a rich history for Buck is the Exhibition Place Circuit in the heart of downtown Toronto. Buck first raced on the notable street course in its first running 30 years ago in Players Challenge. He then went on to race in (and win!) the first CASCAR (now NASCAR Pinty’s Series) race there in 1999.

On July 16th, Buck will return to the narrow streets of the Exhibition Place Circuit for the 30th anniversary of Honda Indy Toronto and the inaugural Pinty’s Grand Prix.

“I’m excited to be coming back to Toronto to a race that has so much history for me,” commented Buck. “I wouldn’t be able to do this without the support for my family, friends, Ontario Chrysler Dealer’s Association, and the amazing fans. This is going to be a special race for me and I can’t wait!”

The Ontario Chrysler Dealer’s Association offers new Jeep, Dodge, Ram, and Chrysler cars along with used cars, trucks, and SUVs from top manufacturers. For years, they have offered auto body and collision repair, auto parts, and expert auto financing.

Today the Ontario Chrysler Dealer’s Association – a proud partner of Robin Buck – debuts a special, throwback paint scheme for this weekend. The iconic Dodge Challenger lime green with a flat-black hood and pin stripe will be hard to miss as Buck hits the streets of Toronto.

“Robin’s a great driver and we’re excited to have him under the CBRT awning for such a special event,” commented CBRT general manager Joey McColm. “I’ve had the pleasure to race with Robin in past events – seeing his skill and talent up-close during our door-to-door action. We’re glad to be a part of his return to the Honda Indy Toronto.”
