Circle Sport has announced today that they will have veteran road course racer Ron Fellows drive their No. 33 Chevrolet in both upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series road course races. The Sonoma Raceway event will be up first for Fellows on June 23 and the second race will be at Watkins Glen International on August 11.
Canadian Tire Corporation will be the primary sponsor for both races and AER Manufacturing will serve as an associate sponsor.
"To have a driver of Ron's experience and ability behind the wheel of the #33 Canadian Tire Chevrolet at the road course events is another milestone in our program," said Circle Sport team owner Joe Falk. "Ron's longtime affiliation with GM Racing and our relationship with RCR (Richard Childress Racing) made this possible, and we're looking forward to giving Ron the opportunity to add to the list of his accomplishments in his racing career."
Fellows has competed in 23 career Sprint Cup Series races and has three top-five finishes and five top-ten finishes. He has four career NASCAR Nationwide Series wins on road courses in 24 races and two Camping World Truck Series wins in 15 races.
“I'm really excited about driving the #33 Chevy SS for Circle Sport Racing and proud to have the iconic Canadian Tire red triangle on the hood,” said Fellows. “Joe Falk and his team have a great relationship with Richard Childress Racing, and with the opportunity to test the new generation Sprint Cup car at tracks on the NASCAR schedule, it was a deal I felt I wanted to be a part of and so did Canadian Tire.”
After 13 races in the 2013 season Circle Sport is in 37th place in owner points. Austin Dillon finished 31st in the Daytona 500 in the No. 33 and then Landon Cassill has driven the past 12 races with a best finish of 22nd coming at Talladega.Tags: AER Manufacturing, Austin Dillon, Canadian Tire, Canadian Tire Corporation, Circle Sport, joe falk, landon cassill, Motorsports, NASCAR, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, Richard Childress Racing, Ron Fellows, Sonoma Raceway, Sprint Cup Series, Watkins Glen International
