WHAT TO WATCH FOR

• Oval racing returns to Europe as the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series contests its third annual event at Tours (France) Speedway. The facility has evolved from a temporary oval for the inaugural race in 2012, won by Ben Kennedy, to a semi-permanent layout a year ago that saw Frederic Gabillon emerge victorious. The .403-mile oval is now a permanent structure in downtown Tours with nine degrees of banking in Turns 3 and 4 and 10.5 degrees in Turns 1 and 2. The lone Whelen Euro Series oval event has become a premier date on the calendar, and the completion of Tours Speedway is a milestone in the series’ rapid growth. The two days of racing is part of the American Tours Festival, one of the top American-themed events held annually in Europe.

• Road course ace Andrew Ranger has a chance to match a historical mark that already has his name on it in the Jiffy Lube 100 presented by La Petite Bretonne at Circuit ICAR in NASCAR Canadian Tire Series presented by Mobil 1 action Sunday. Ranger has won the Jiffy Lube 100 in each of the two previous seasons, and a third-straight triumph would duplicate his three consecutive wins at Circuit de Trois-Rivieres from 2008-10, which is the only time a driver has won the same event three times in a row.

• The NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour’s spring break will finally come to a close with the Daggett Shuler Attorneys at Law 150 Friday at Caraway Speedway in rural Sophia, North Carolina. George Brunnhoelzl III has won the special Independence Day event in each of the two previous seasons, and he reached Victory Lane the last time the southern tour was on track on April 12 at Langley Speedway.
