Following a successful 2017 campaign Canada’s Best Racing Team (CBRT) is hard at work preparing for competition in the 2018 NASCAR Pinty’s Series that will again race on ovals, road courses and temporary street circuits across Canada. In the first of several upcoming team announcements CBRT is pleased to welcome Calgary, Alberta, racer Brett Taylor as a full-time participant for the upcoming season.
This past year Taylor was behind the wheel in a CBRT prepared car for three events and having him back next season was something CBRT General Manager Joey McColm was hoping to achieve.
“From the moment Brett joined our group it was a really good fit,” said McColm. “He’s a passionate guy and wants to do anything he can to be better and help make the team better. That’s the kind of person you want on your team."
Taylor raced for CBRT in the season opening event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this past year and quickly turned heads with his performance. In extreme conditions that went from wet to dry and back again, Taylor moved smartly through the field from his 19th starting spot on the grid to finish ninth, his best finish in four series races to that point. For his efforts Taylor gained the most positions of any driver that day and claimed the Josten's Rookie of the Race award.
“To come in and achieve that kind of success right away, that’s special,” said McColm. “We want to do everything we can to help Brett become the Rookie of the Year in 2018”.
Joining CBRT on a full time basis to drive the No. 46 car has Taylor equally excited and looking forward to the 2018 season.
“I’m so excited for the opportunity to race a full season." said Taylor. "I have always watched these guys on TV and proud to race with them."
Taylor will race the No. 46 CBRT machine this season as it has a special meaning to him. The choice was inspired by the movie “Days of Thunder” that first jolted Taylor’s enthusiasm for NASCAR and has him focused on success for the upcoming season.
“This is my chance to put Alberta on the map in NASCAR,” said the driver. “I’m hoping through my commitment to the rookie campaign and this series, that I can help bring more awareness to NASCAR in western Canada and what great racing we have at home.”
Early in the New Year there will further announcements regarding marketing partners for Taylor and the CBRT group for the upcoming season. The 2018 NASCAR Pinty’s Series race schedule is expected to be finalized shortly.
You can find the most up to date information on the CBRT website www.cbrteams.com and there are openings for interested partners to come on board in time for the new season.
