November 15, 2017 – 11:27am
MILVERTON, Ont. — It is with great pleasure that 22 Racing announce Wednesday the return of Donald Theetge to the team for 2018. Theetge will compete in the No. 24 Mercedes-Benz St Nicholas/Circuit Acura entry in all of the NASCAR Pintys Series oval events.
“Donald showed in 2017 he is a threat to win in every event,” said Scott Steckly team owner of 22 Racing. “He came up just short of two wins last year and he has something to prove in the coming season. We look forward to fielding cars for him this year and him getting that first NASCAR Pintys Series win.”
“I am very proud to be back in 2018 with Scott and his team,” said Donald Theetge. “I think we proved we can win in this series with a good team like 22 Racing and I like working with them. In 2017 every race we entered we had a car good enough to finish in the top 5. We all know in the 2017 season we should have won two races and we finished second but in 2018 we expect to be in the winners circle. Scott will be announcing my partner to race the road courses soon and we expect to be racing for the championship. I think winter will be too long.”
In ten NASCAR Pinty’s Series starts with 22 Racing, Donald has posted 2 poles, 6 top 5’s, 8 top 10’s with 409 laps led.
The 2018 NASCAR Pinty’s Series schedule has not been released yet but it is expected that Theetge will compete in events at Delaware Speedway, Autodrome Chaudiere, Auto Clearing Speedway, Edmonton Int’l Raceway, Riverside Speedway, Autodrome St. Eustache, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Jukasa Speedway.
